The Regency is one of Dublin's older hotels, and, looking at it as you drive in, it can be a bit daunting thinking of what type of room awaits. But fear not, a budget room for a cheap-as-chips price was clean, with a large double bed and a single bed, and a decent power shower above the bath. Sure, it's not all shiny and new, but it was clean and comfortable.
If you want luxury, don't stay here however - the hotel is old and needs some tlc to bring it back to it's former glory. If like me, you need a place to put the head down for the night, and have a shower to wash away the cobwebs, then it's ideal.
Rooms are not soundproofed - didn't bother me as I wasn't trying to get some shut-eye for an early morning flight. View from the room wasn't something to inspire anything other than closing the curtains!
Car park is several metres from the front door - and a charge of €8 for 24 hours for hotel residents - that was good value to me. Down side - you can't reach the hotel from the carpark internally - as in, if it's raining, you're going to get wet.
Leisure centre is similar, being located beside the car park - I didn't try out the facilities.
Didn't use the bar or restaurant in the hotel so not sure of the standard.
Staff on checkin, housekeeping and maintenance (my tv didn't work initially) were excellent - friendly, helpful and patient. Some of the other guests in the hotel could've taken a leaf out of their books!
