Have just returned from a very enjoyable birthday weekend in Dublin, staying at this hotel. The location is good, being a short taxi journey, or @ 30min leisurely walk, into the heart of Dublin. Easy to get to from the airport, using the bus. 10 Euros for a return journey and the stop is just by the bridge on the opposite bank of the Liffey - approx 150 - 200 metres to walk from there. The hotel itself is very clean - both in the public areas and the room itself. We didn't eat there in the evening, but we did use the bar and the prices were pretty much the average, for Dublin in general. Breakfast was fine, being a standard buffet type affair, with all the normal hot options available. The hotel has quite a large pool, together with a steam room, sauna, jacuzzi and gym. If you have hair, you are required to wear a swimming cap in the pool - if you don't have one, they sell them at the pool reception for 2.50 euros. If you are only using the sauna, etc, then you don't need one. The hotel was very busy when we stayed, but the staff remained very polite, helpful and courteous at all times. The only reason this review is 4 stars instead of 5, is that there is no air conditioning in the rooms (we were on the fifth floor and i'm assuming all rooms are pretty much the same). We found it a little hot and stuffy in the room, but if you open the balcony doors, then it's too noisy to sleep. All in all, though, a very good hotel and one I would recommend and consider using again, for future visits.
