Stayed here for 6 days on our first trip to Dublin. We really enjoyed our stay here!
We first arrived a few hours before check-in. We were really jet lagged and it probably showed on our faces b/c the girl at the front desk offered to take our luggage and try to find us a room. It took about an hour, but was still 2 hours before check in which was nice. The room was nice, tidy and looked just like the picture on the website. The bed was large, the bathroom was nice and modern. We slept in daily, so left our room about noon and when we returned our room had always been cleaned. We stayed in the Courtyard rooms, which are the budget rooms but it was more than enough and exceeded my expectations. Apparently there are no air conditioners in the courtyard rooms, but since it is February we didn't need it.
The hotel itself is very unique. As many have commented before it looks like something out of Alice and Wonderland. Very large furniture in the lobby, lots of mirrors and unique accent pieces, very fun.
There's free WiFi which is awesome. There's also a small exercise room with a treadmill, an elliptical, a stair stepper, a yoga mat and a balance ball. There's water and fresh towels provided in the exercise room with is a plus.
The location was GREAT! Walking distance from all major attractions and pubs in Dublin, but tucked away so not right in the middle of it all. Just what I like.
There were 2 cons and that was the thin walls and the food. We could hear everything going on in the hallway and could hear voices from the rooms adjacent to us. This was a bit disturbing on those nights when we just wanted to crash early. We decided to have our last meal in the hotel bar and boy were we disappointed. The prices for the bar food weren't bad, but the taste was. I had the pasta arrabiata and it was very bland. My fiancé had the burger and there was a huge hunk of not so tasty mayonnaise on it. The pasta was so far from what was advertised (no sundried tomatoes, no garlic) that I mentioned it to the waiter. When I did he said he would tell the chef. He returned a while later to say that the chef himself tasted the sauce and agreed that it was bland. He apologized and took the charge off the bill. That was very nice of them.
All in all a great stay that I would highly recommend.
