The Victoria Hotel is located right at the centre of Cork, surrounded by restaurants, pubs and shops. Built in 1810 it is the city's most historic hotel. We've spent 1 night at the Victoria Hotel and our stay on the whole was rather pleasant. We've booked a twin room which was quite big, reasonably clean and equipped with TV and ironing centre. All rooms are en suite. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they provided us with a city map on request.
As mentioned above: there are lots of bars and pubs in close vicinity to the hotel and that means it can be pretty loud outside at times.
The breakfast was pretty simple, but nevertheless good.
Unique Quality: The hotel bar is very nice, pretty much pub-like. All kinds of drinks and coctails are available here and bar food is served until 09:00 pm. There also is a restaurant (but we did not check this out).
Due to the hotel's age the whole building is pretty contorted (especially the staircase). There are elevators taking you to the floors where the rooms are but please note: the reception is on the 1st floor and you'll have to get your luggage up there first which can be rather troublesome (and it might be even impossible for seniors, etc.).
There's a side-entrance with a night-porter for the "night owls".
Many types of rooms available: single, double, twin, triple, quad and family suites.
Directions: Cork city centre. The hotel lies half way down the main street (St. Patricks Street)
