We had very mixed impressions and not sure if we would return there.
Pros:The location is perfect: easy walking distance to all major sights,Temple Bar area and
parks. The rooms are comfortable. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.
Cons: When we arrived, there was no hot water in the rooms and even after this was "fixed", water was only luke warm for our entire 2 night stay.
The worst was that we could hear music and the thumping, vibrating bass from the nightclub downstairs until 2am. We called and front desk is aware of this. This hotel has obviously decided that nightclub patrons are more important than hotel guests.
Breakfast was weird; very sparse buffet. We ordered toast which arrived finally at the end of our breakfast and an omelet which was good but was alone on the plate-no fruit, potatoes or even garnish.
It was as if they had never served breakfast before or were unready to do so.
