My family spent 3 nights here to celebrate my mums 70th birthday (15th - 18th Feb 13) The staff went way beyond our expectations to make it special - if your going for a special occasion let them know before you go. Hotel very handy to find coming in from the north of Dublin, free secure underground car park, lift up to reception and a quick check in with super friendly staff.
You get a swipe card to use the lifts, the doors to the stairs and your room. This is great because it keeps the hotel really safe- you can't get upstairs without one. In other hotels these swipe cards can be a nuisance but these ones work and are easy to use.
The rooms are a great size and really fancy and have everything you need- hairdryer, tea/coffee facilities, tv and music system!! The bathroom is lovely with a large shower and bath. It is stocked daily with lovely toiletries. The beds have the thickest mattress I have ever seen - super comfortable- i wanted to take the bed home with me!!
The hotel is looking directly onto the Croke park stadium - it is directly across the road.
Breakfast is €9.99-€14.99 and children were free. It was lovely and you could eat as much as you like- worth it in my opinion.
I didn't have any other meals but the bar / restaurant etc looks lovely.
We bought our hop on/hop off tickets at reception - you get a discount. (Green bus - highly recommend this to). The bus starts down in the city centre but runs a shuttle bus to take you to the first stop free from this hotel - right outside the front door!
We got a taxi back one night (taxi bus for 8) and it was €12 (taxi rank on upper o'connell street). We also walked one day too. Some reviews say its a dodgy area- we didn't walk about it at night but the day we walked the area looked fine to me.
On checkout we were each given bottles of water for our journey home - nice touch I thought.
Bottom line - super helpful and friendly staff from the reception, restaurant and cleaners. The hotel is really lovely , in excellent condition and super clean. If I go back to Dublin I will definitely be back to stay here- couldn't recommend it enough!!!
