we travel to Europe frequently and these are the largest "standard" rooms we have found. This is a great hotel for American travelers who are not accustomed to European sized rooms. BTW the fireplace controls on on the remote in your room that also controls the large flat screen TV. This hotel is about a 20 minute walk from St Stephen's Green, or a $8€ taxi ride from Temple Bar. The buses also stop right in front or the hotel. The neighborhood was pleasant and there are shops, pubs, restaurants etc close by.
The best aspect of this hotel is fantastic staff. The friendly front desk and bar/bistro staff was very helpful and we found ourselves spending more time in the bar/bistro because of them. The food is very good and you'll find the lunch rush is mostly locals popping in for a pint, a bite and some business. We didn't make it to the Vanilla Club that's open on the weekends, but judging by the clientele that we saw it's definitely worth checking out!
In our room, as is standard in Europe, no shower curtain just a swinging glass splash guard and 1 hair dryer on the wall in the bathroom and 1 hair dryer in the top drawer of the desk (in front of a mirror).
We will stay here again when we return to Dublin.
