I genuinely liked this hotel and will almost certainly go there again next time I am in Dublin. It is superbly located, just a few mins walk from Baggot Street (pubs/restaurants), Grafton Street (main shopping street) and St Stephens Green and shares Merion Square with the superb National Gallery of Ireland and the Natural History Museum. Breakfast buffet was good, and the smoked salmon salad I had in the bar for lunch was excellent. The only issues I had with my room 216, were that the thermostat on the air con was broken which stopped the heat of the room rise above 15 degrees, however, when I called reception, they promptly provided a fan heater which heated the room to a far more pleasant temperature very quickly. My other gripes were that the extractor fan in the bathroom was broken, there was an indelible scuff mark in the bath and I felt that for a 4* hotel, we should have been provided with bath robes. I also felt they were a little mean with regard to the size and the quantity of the towels they provided. In brief, I enjoyed my stay, will stay there again but they need to keep abreast of room maintenance.
