This is an elegant hotel in a great location; minutes from Trinity College, Grafton Street and St. Stephens Green, as well as right next to the National Gallery, National Museum and Leinster House. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar but you don’t feel removed from the action.
Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly by the reception staff. They gave us maps, asked us what types of sights we were interested in and showed us to get there. Our room wasn’t ready yet so they watched our luggage while we went to lunch and explored a bit.
We had a lovely, quiet room with a extra large bed and plush blankets and pillows. Everything was clean and well cared for and the antique furnishings that decorated our room and the public rooms were charming and graceful.
Breakfast was included and served in style. There was the typical European style breakfast: pastries, bread and croissants served with various jams and butter; a selection of smoked hams and cheeses, yogurts and cereals and lots of dried fruits. There was also a menu to order from that included traditional Irish breakfast items. Everything was fresh and kept cold and service was prompt.
I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, upscale place to relax after pounding the pavement of Dublin all day. There are less expensive places to stay but this hotel had a lot of little extra touches that made it a great place to decompress after sightseeing all day. The lines were soft and thick, the food plentiful and fresh and the staff helpful and friendly.
