Editorial review:

This luxurious hotel has a rich and elegant period décor dominated by Edwardian velvet and gracious Irish fabrics. The sleeping rooms are smaller than your standard modern hotel but that doesn’t seem to bother most of the guests. The Library Bar has the same elegant yet relaxed feel and if you have the time, you can relax in one of their really comfortable armchairs and enjoy the warmth from the great fireplace.

                      The location.

                      This hotel did not in anyway live up to the review it received on bookings.com.

                    • Couple
                      8.2

                      the location was excellent for the city and the staff were polite and helpful, everything was as described, just wish we didnt have to arrive a day late due to the flights.

                    • Single
                      5.0

                      Too noisy and shower not very hot and slow

                    • Family with children
                      7.0

                      Very central location, reasonable price

                      Hotel decoration a bit tired, however there was redecoration in progress, presumably standard will be better when this is finished.

                    • Couple
                      9.2

                      Good location near all activities in city center; including night life.

                      Very nice staff and nice room. Good value the most important thing.

                      The breakfasr was terrible. No yogurt, it was either a full irish or nothing it seemed.

                      Central location and friendly staff. Great value for money.

                      I was in room 304. There was no hot water on saturday night. There was only luke warm water on Sunday morning.

                      I thought the staff were helpful and the hotel was very central.

                      Hotel been under refurbishment and not informed, no toilet paper in the bathroom, no wake up call which was booked, been kept awake for two nights due to the fire door outside our room slamming shut, this was very frustrating. Booked two rooms together but were on separate floors when asked for them to be together and told this was ok..

                      it was in a great location, the room was lovely and we got a free upgrade which was nice!

                      there was a lot of noise from the busy street outside, but being a city centre hotel, that was to be expected!

                      Reception staff were very helpful, library bar is great with lots of atmosphere and room was clean and adequate.

                      The room key card refused to work on a daily basis.

                      My room was very clean and modern with very good sound proofing on the window. You need that in the area where the hotel is located as it's a popular area for going out at night. The hotel bar is very good.

                      Aside from my room, which was very clean and modern, the rest of the hotel is shabby in a not-charming way: bits missing off the elevator, corridor carpets that don't fit.

                      Great location in the city center, walking distance to everywhere, and located in a very nice area. Hotel was quiet enough so we were able to get a good nights sleep. Check out wasnt until 12pm, which took pressure off us getting up too early.

                      The decor of the hallways upstairs wasnt great, and needs a good paint job. Saying that, the room itself was perfect.
