The Hampton was our final stop in a month long trip through Europe and Singapore jumping from hotel to hotel, with intermittent couch surfing.
We were fortunate to stop at some amazing hotels, and this was perhaps my favourite.
Ok its a bit further out than many of the options, but walking the streets of Dublin (even in the rain) is a pleasure...and if you wanted to hop on a bus, its right outside.
We had 2 nights in Dublin, and we were very happy to spend our final night of our tour locked in our hotel room in front of the enormous TV and equally sizeable fire,feasting on provisions procured from a very fine deli just a 2 minute stroll down the road. The real sealer was the bathroom. It was cavernous. It echoed as you walked passed it, and was the very pinnacle of luxurious design.
I love my bathrooms. Big baths. Big showers. Lots of bench space. Separated toilet. Mood lighting. Speakers. It had the lot.
We were well aware that its also a bit of a party hotel, and our room was directly above party central...but the Dublin weather did us proud and there were very few revellers braving the cold and the wet. So noise wasn't the issue that some experience stopping at the back end of weeks
One tip, if you are interested Mr Hotel Operator: kill the mood lighting in the breakfast room. It would be nice to see what we are eating. Dark and moody doesn't work for the first meal of the day...it just makes me want to go back to that lovely oversize (well of course) bed.
