“smoking in rooms?”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

i liked the hotel on arrival and the rooms are pleasant and the staff helpful. my only complaint is that the smell of cigarette smoke has infiltrated my room all night. highly unpleasant. should't all hotels now make rooms non-smoking? i felt this really let down an otherwise very comfortable hotel.

I stayed here based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms clean, well equiped and fairly new.
I had one small gripe; it the bed linnen was covered in fluff. It seems the linnen were washed with the towels. No major drama, but laying out clothes on the bed resulted in them being covered in fluff.
By the way, the hotel is right across the road from the Croke Park stadium. Unfortunately I did not have time to visit it, but apparently it is worthwhile if you are a sports fan.

I am in Dublin a lot to see family and friends. I was taken here by my sister and initially thought it might be a bit too far out looking at the map. I was wrong! It was just 10 minutes pleasant walk to O'Connell Street and made a nice change to stay this side of the river.

The room was on the Executive floor and was lovely and right opposite the Stadium. I was concerned it might be noisy with a huge match being played whilst we stayed there. But didn't hear a thing so that's great.

The Executive lounge with free hot drinks, fruit and huge TV was a lovely touch and nicely done. Felt very special.

Breakfast superb, ate in restaurant one evening which was lovely. Well recommended.

And finally to mention the staff. Absolutely went above and beyond to ensure we were happy from the restaurant to cleaners to front of house. I will definitely be back here for my next Dublin trip. Delighted!

Had a nice week here. Rooms are kept clean, very good food, nice bar area with a very big projection TV. Really was impressed. A bit of a walk to get;to the downtown area and the hotel is across the street from a stadium, also you are in what appeared to be a residential area. A nice hotel, a bit out of the way (bring taxi money) but a very well run hotel.

I stayed here last weekend with my boyfriend, his sister and her partner. As a previous Reception Manager from the DeVere hotel brand I am always very critical of where I stay. The check-in was brilliant, lots of information given and good upgrades offered, which tells me staff care about where they work and it seemed like they all enjoyed where they worked.
The room was pristine, great toiletries offered, I would maybe suggest looking at your tea/coffee station as we had a few odd tea bags in there (I am not fussed with things like that, but for someone who was there was one normal tea bag and the rest fruit, however biscuit was a nice touch). Bottled water would have been nice too, however again was not a big deal.
We got room service on the second night quite late, it was fab, however we were only provided with one set of cutlery when we ordered 2 meals and I had to ask for another set. Free Wi-fi down in the lobby was a life-saver! (We needed to check-in online for the journey home) and it is a nice peaceful area. LOVED hot towels on check in and bottled water on check out. Only down-fall is location. We walked to central Dublin a few times and the areas you have to walk through are not the best, this is not a fault of the hotel's though. We paid £210 for flights from London Heathrow and 2 nights at the Croke Park and it was worth every penny!

Stayed for a short break over Easter, huge beds and bathroom with an executive lounge for endless cups of coffee! Slightly off the beaten track but well worth tge extra euros in a taxi!
