Had a great weekend in this hotel last weekend on a trip to Dublin to see the Phantom of the Opera. We were on a Supervalu deal which was great value and included a wonderful breakfast on each morning. The hotel is brilliantly located about 10 minutes from everywhere with great restaurants on the way up and down Dame Street. Room was very comfortable, clean and bathroom spotless. Staff in bar and breafast staff were very helpful. Only two small niggles - Music in bar was really dreadful on Friday and Saturday night - bad singer - hard to listen to and the next night bad singer and very very loud. We had drinks in the foyer to get away from the din and after an hour, most people had cleared the bar, even though closing time had not elapsed. The WI FI did not seem to work, even though it was advertised. Reception did not seem to be very bothered about whether we had access or not and advised that it was working, even though our phones showed very clearly that it was disconnected. We paid €1 for internet access in the foyer, which would not let me view my work emails, and was not dealt with in a very helpful manner by reception. We went across the road to an internet cafe and got all of our emails. Just a small couple of points, but apart from one very helpful girl on reception, the others were not particularly interested in or pro-active with their customers. On one occasion on Saturday night when 2 guests reported that the wife's purse with credit cards and mobile phone had been stolen from them in the bar, the night receptionist (a man) had to seek permission from a manager to allow them to call their credit card providers to cancel the cards. While he was not downright rude, his apathetic response to this very traumatic incident for this young couple left a lot to be desired. The police arrived and did deal with this awful matter in a very sympathetic and empathetic manner. As I said, just a few small points, but important ones to people who are using the hotel as a way to get away from it all.
