Our room was tiny, unlike the spacious photos on their website. Every nuance from the street could be heard from the single-pain and in-operable window. The View? Nothing like the image from their website atop the building w/ outdoor chairs and tables for "afternoon tea"...
Good luck regulating the room temperature. There is no thermostat so be prepared to wake up intermittently to adjust a temperamental valve on the floor for the radiator. Our refrigerator didn’t work at all- so nothing to sooth my sore throat (due to the heat) at 3:00am. The T.V. was an old computer monitor – maybe a 13” that got 2 or 3 channels clearly- the others were “snow”.
Get ready to pay for everything including valet parking each night (there is no other way to park your rental car) and internet access. Valet = 25 Euros/ night, internet = 20 Euros/day.
This was our first stop on our honeymoon. Luckily we only had to stay there for 2 days. Our total for those 2 days was 719 Euros ($1,131 US). After we complained they “comped” our incidentals like the internet and valet parking (whoopee!!!) They refused to refund us for the misery we incurred while [not] sleeping there. Instead, they waited for us to leave the country 8 days later before they offered us a “complementary 2 day stay” in another one of their “luxurious” rooms.
Sure! Right after I poke my eyes out!
Perhaps my “complementary stay” is transferable? If so, anyone can claim them for free! A penny more than that and your getting ripped off – just like we did!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Clarence boasts fifty bedrooms and suites, along with our world famous Penthouse Suite. Our rooms range from Classic through Deluxe and on to our River View and Garden Terrace Suites. Our furnishings are simple: classic Shaker oak, beds dressed in cool white linen, sitting elegantly in contrast to a palate of vibrant cardinal colours, rich drapes and luxe carpets. We aim to provide all the simple needs of our guests and we offer 'round the clock room service and all rooms have complimentary WiFi as standard. Our city centre location means car space is at a premium, but we do have a small underground car park that can be reserved for a small nightly supplement. It is also worth noting that our location does mean that the area can be lively at night, especially at the weekends and while we have taken every effort to reduce noise, it is not possible to block it all out. Please do consider this before booking. Within the hotel complex there are many drinking and dining experiences, from the chilled out bliss of The Study to the super stylish Octagon Bar, the perfect spot for an afternoon cocktail or a laid back nightcap. We also have Michelin star chef Oliver Dunne's Cleaver East restaurant within our walls and we are very proud that Oliver and his team provide all catering at the hotel, so whether it's a late night bite in your room or a Full Irish breakfast the next morning, you know your food will be of the highest standard, made from the freshest produce, closely cared for by Michelin starred hands. In the bowels of our building you will find the luxurious cocktail and food bar The Liquor Rooms, home to Dublin's arts set and the first ROI bar ever to be nominated in the prestigious Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards. On our first floor, overlooking the River Liffey lies The Cleaver East Suite at The Clarence, which can be reserved for special occasions, from large weddings to intimate business meetings. ... more less
