“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed from 18 Sep - 20 Sep in a suite on the 6th floor. The room was very large, modern with massive bed, sofa, dining table, flat screen TV, safe, iron and ironing board, mini bar and complimentary fruit basket. There was also a large balcony, with views over Dublin, and small table with chairs. The bathroom was wonderful! Very modern, clean and even had a TV over the bath. There was a separate shower and the normal complimentary toiletries.

The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. Check-in & check-out was very quick. Bar staff and waiting staff, again, very friendly. We had breakfast included in our rate, the choice was very good and everything cooked was hot and fresh. We opted for breakfast in our room on the second morning, we were a bit disappointed and wished we had gone to the restaurant instead.

The hotel is in a good central position, literally 5 mins walk to Temple Bar, there is a good choice of restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Stayed here with my husband as we were attending a function in town. Hotel is impressive but the room quality did not impress us. The electrics kept blowing in the room and the maintenance man tried to blame the appliance. We moved room and guess what.... No issues with the hair dryer. The sink in the new room had a constant leak from the tap, the drain smelled, the tv only worked when it wanted to and the curtains were hanging down. Again we called reception and the maintenance man came. Again he used every excuse under the sun as to why these problems were there but failed to fix any of them. He told my husband that he was the engineering manager and his assistant would come to address the issues.... No one came!
The food was average however the breakfast was excellent.
On checkout we found the receptionist to be under pressure she was joined by another staff member who smelled of smoke. Clearly she was on her break but at least freshen up before returning to your desk.

We won't be hurrying back

Hubby & I stayed here for 2 nights on 8/31/2013. Great location close enough to walk to town & pubs but away from all the noise, walking distance to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Everyone at the hotel was helpful & nice. We had issue with room being next to elevator & Francua was kind & quick to change our room. Also Joe, doorman was awesome. He suggested several places to go into town & we were not disappointed. Can not say enough about the breakfast, it was quite the spread, just what we needed for all the walk you do. Bar was also nice, bar tenders quick to suggest drinks. Also like the added extra security that you need a rook key to go to all floors past the hotel lobby.

Visited the restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary and had an absolutely amazing time. Was there many times before for working dinners and the food was always very good but it was the first time for a special occasion and surely we were not disappointed. Service is spot on and food is second to none.
We both ordered fried calamari which were simply divine and came with a lovely sauce and for main I had steak it simply melted in your mouth. My husband had rack on lamb and unfortunately I didn’t taste it but did look great and he assured me it was fantastic.
We were so full we didn’t order any dessert.
A magnificent meal and I night to remember.
Can’t recommend it enough!!!!!

Ideally located, this hotel offers absolutely everything a traveller expects. Staff is extremely professional although I don't think I met one Irish person, but that's the global world I guess. Breakfast is lavish (and they serve expresso at no extra charge although I had to teach them what a ristretto was...). I was lucky enough to stay in a business room and it offered free nespresso machines in the room. As they are not exactly the most recent, I had trouble making mine work and with the magic phone line (one line solves it all), within seconds, literally, I had someone over helping me! Always a kind word and polite, the staff is to be commended!

Close to St. Patricks Church/square, Dublin Castle and minutes walk to Grafton St., Temple Bar areas. Modern, friendly staff, huge delicious breakfast buffet with gluten free options that is included in room price. Nice bar area. Quiet, as off beaten path from the busier areas of Dublin.
