Checked in late. Needed to get to bed and asked for fastest check in possible. Took 2 minutes. She nailed it. I've stayed here before but this was my first time in the newly renovated 4th floor. Very high standard art deco that would look right in 1920s NYC. Great appeal. Much better than before gang. Nicely done.👍 Iron. Still...

This hotel is in a great location ... about a 15 minute walk to Temple Bar (and area) and about 1 block to a pick up /drop location for the Hop On/Hop Off bus and the airport bus too. The hotel was quaint and beautiful and a very good price. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is...

My wife and I visited for part work, part pleasure, and spent a week at the Alexander. The location was perfect for us, with easy walking distance to many options for food, sightseeing, and other entertainment. The room had plenty of room to serve as our daily home base, with a comfortable bed, refreshing shower, and the usual amenities. Breakfast...

The refurbished rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Location is also good, close to Stephens green and Grafton Street. Our experience was marred by unhelpful advice - being told and reassured by the reception staff that it was OK to leave your car outside the hotel , unattended for 10mins plus was not correct and resulted in a 80 euro...

We came to Dublin for a first time for my boyfriend's birthday. It's quite central and all main attractions were a walkable distance. The reception staff were very informative and helpful and the hotel was very clean. Our room was comfortable and had everything it needed although the bathroom needs a little updating in my opinion. The breakfast was lovely,...

The location is good, 5 min drive to centre of town. The decor was classical (which I like) and has a slightly opulent feel to it. The staff were friendly and helpful.
