I stayed here in Nov 2013 with my wife, who had business at the RCS, which is right next door and therefore for us, it was a great location. The check-in was smooth, even though we came in at 1 am; the room was facing the inner-courtyard, presumably because we had asked for a quiet room. I don't know how old the property is, but the room was really well done inside - contemporary, smart. We did not dine at the hotel at all, but they were just generally super nice, even bringing up free steamed milk for my wife, who brings her own coffee everywhere.
It is walkable to Temple Bar, Trinity College etc but at the same time away from all those. The park across the street was very nice, and probably will be nicer in the spring. The mall at the corner of the street (as you turn left from the main hotel entrance) had a comprehensive supermarket, if you need anything.
The only shortcoming -and this is a nit, which is why I'd still give this hotel 5 stars - was the shower. It was very difficult to control the temperature, and the shower head pointed vertically downward but had such a large radius of spray that some of it would bounce off the wall and dribble down the side of the tub, eventually making the bathroom constantly wet.
That aside, loved the place and would stay again in a heartbeat.
