If you want a nice, clean hotel that has a great staff, no probems at check in/out, is QUIET at night, yet still withing walking distance to all the great areas in Dublin (Temple Bar, Grafton St, St Stephens' Green, Trinity College, etc...) this is the place!
It's a wonderful hotel and I am rating it a 5 - but mind you this is not a "luxury hotel". However, the rooms are much bigger that the Clarence, but not as "fancy" (or expensive). Just a heads up - if you want something decadent, go to the Four Seasons, If you want a wonderful hotel with everything BUT the decadence, go here!
We stayed in the Alexander's 'Laurel Suite' for a few nights over New Years Eve. Everything was wonderful! Great staff, wonderful bar and food, And I have to say some of the best coffee I've ever had!
The suite was very nice. Huge bathroom wih big bath and seperate (powerful!) shower. Lots of room at the sink for toiletries. Bathroom was stocked with nice shampoo, lotion, etc.
Suite was spacious with 3 windows, comfy couch and chairs, and a desk area. Coffee/tea kettle with a wonderful assortment of teas, sugars, etc. Everything was so clean and new. Carpets, walls, bedding - all were in perfect condition.
Nice sized bedroom with lots of closet space and a nice dresser as well. And the beds are so comfortable! There is a TV in the living room as well as the bedroom. Great reception as well!
What a treat to get up in the morning, take a nice bath and relax with a fresh cup of coffee while watching the morning news! I felt so at home.
The Alexander really spoiled us!
We stayed in Dublin again last year for 2 weeks and stayed at the O'Callaghan Court Apartments that they own, down the street. No reviews here yet on them, but they were FANTASTIC!
