Stayed for 4 nights recently including over new year. Hotel was quite central (which was very nice), within walking distance of the city centre. Old style hotel, which was very full when we were there end Dec. Stayed 1 night in a very small room, then we requested to be moved to a different (larger) room and this was acted upon very promptly by the reception staff. New room was much larger, although the double bed was very small. Staff were very polite, friendly and helpful (both reception and restaurant). Free Wi-fi was very good in all places (several networks throughout the hotel). Breakfast was very basic (not a lot of choice at all) but good and filling, especially full Irish; in some mornings, very long lines for the toast machines (which presumbably can be very easily fixed by setting up couple toasting stations instead of cramming several toasters into the corner of the room). Hotel was very noisy, you could practicaly hear all activities / movements, etc from neighbouring rooms (especially top floors) and also from outside. Not sure what can be done about this, the noise is the main reason for the average rating for this hotel. Hotel was clean, bathrooms appeared recently modernized (which was quite nice). In the lobby lounge there was a baggage scale for guest use, which one could use at a cost of €1 (charging for this is something we found very strange; we did not need to use it ourselves since we did not have lots of luggage but just mentioning as a comment). Good value overall.
