This is by far probably the very best 4 star hotel I have stayed in for Decor, ambiance, friendliness and attentiveness of staff. Breakfast choice was fantastic, as were meals sampled. The hotel entrance and general seating areas are extremely impressive. Our room was very well appointed, and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have been in. My only negative, was our room location on the first floor overlooking a very busy Pearce Street. Street traffic noise was very evident and persistent, and invasive throughout most of the night, even with windows closed, and as a result my wife and I got practically no sleep, leaving us exhausted the following day. Had I been staying for more than one night I would have required a change of room location. Anybody who goes over to sleep easily, or is not sensitive to such noise will have no problem. On my next return to Dublin I will definitely stay at this hotel, with the provision that I am not in a room directly overlooking Pearce Street. A beautiful hotel full of character and excellent, friendly staff, in an ideal location for the main Dublin attractions. It is only a 15 minute walk from Connolly Station, and a few minutes from the entrance to Trinity College. I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this hotel, with my room location being the only proviso.
