This is a handsome-looking hotel both externally and internally. The building is a perfect example of a Georgian town house and the high-ceilinged reception/lounge and bar are pretty classy. The rooms themselves are a bit less grand (well pretty much bog-standard if mine was anything to go by) but are clean and comfortable and have all the necessary bits and bobs required from a mid-market city hotel and as a bonus freebie WiFi (the emphasis on being FREE).
Reception was friendly and efficient and the breakfast-included rate (at just over 60 euros) very reasonable.
I was only here for one night and having been out late I missed breakfast (even though that is served at the more than reasonable hours of 8 to 10) and so can't comment on the food, but I hear that it is OK.
I noticed on a review elsewhere that some people found the rooms noisy due to thin walls and creaky floorboards. Noisy rooms never bother me personally - after 10 or so pints of Guinness and an excellent Singapore noodle supper I can sleep through anything! Something perhaps to be wary of if you are a light sleeper though.
PS: I did hear the creaky floorboards when I finally surfaced at 10 minutes before check-out!
Unique Quality: Whilst this was just a bed for the night, so far as I was concerned, it is in a perfect location, just after the top end of O'Connell Street, slap-bang in the city centre. The bus stop from the airport bus is about a minute's walk, as are most other bus stops, and the local urbal rail station at Connelly is within easy walking distance too.
Don't expect The Gresham but pretty good value otherwise.
Directions: Quite literally at the end of O'Connell Street heading out of town, pretty much opposite the church.
Its a nice ** hotel in a Georgian house. We had an offer from our Dutch travel company OAD. . . pay for 3 and get 4 nights. Normally one night cost about 90-110 euro a room. The rooms have different sizes. The are well kept and all with bath/shower/tv.
