The prestigious shopping haven of Grafton Street is just 5 minutes’ walk away. Dublin’s 02 Arena, Grand Canal Theatre and the Aviva Stadium are also nearby.
Room had recently been renovated- very nice though tv/media centre was left un connected. Breakfast was a disappointment, staff ignored me on arrival as had to wait to be seated, offered coffee on sitting down, had to request it again by trying to get staff attention - my request for a milky coffee not fulfilled given a pot of black coffee. I was not offered a breakfast menu, then was glad on hearing another gentleman state this was his 5th time ordering an omelette, buffet choice was severely limited. Lots of staff but poor service!
3 out of 5
In a good location, hotel is comfortable and clean.
Location is very good, very close to the main galleries and museums and a 5-10 minute walk to Grafton Street. The hotel was clean and in good condition, even if the decor is a little dated and tired looking. The room I had was comfortable and clean. However, the only window was internal and overlooked the entrance atrium so there was no view outside to natural daylight. Parking was close by in another building and the subsidized rate was good. Staff were very friendly.
