    Location was good, short walk to lovely part of Dublin, Merrion Square, St Stephen's Green. Would stay again for location if price is good.

    Nothing major. The room was a little dated and the bathroom decor could do with updating, also bathroon very poorly lit, but shower power was fab, bed was huge but a bit soft. Just minor issues. Would stay again.

    We had a great stay, staff helpful and friendly. Didn't eat at the hotel, but had the odd glass which was fine. Bed was large and very comfortable. Liked the location, near the National gallery and an easy walk into the centre (despite the rain!).

    Great location. Good breakfast and most of the staff were friendly and helpful.

    Bed was poor -mattress was uncomfortable and in dire need of replacement. rooms in need of a facelift. Car park is a complete disaster -away from hotel, and claustrophobic car lifts which get stuck. I was stuck in carpark for 25 mins before a member of staff helped me out.

    Beds were very comfortable and place was spotless and looked very well.

    I didn't like the complications with the parking. I think it might have been more the staff that was there problem there. The foreign guy on the desk did not explain anything properly... between parking, parking tickets and internet... i was quiet annoyed. but they are only small things :)

    It was in an ideal situation to visit National Gallery and to walk to the Gaiety theatre.It had a nice relaxing atmosphere.

    We had an evening meal in the hotel and it was disappointing.

    Our stay at the O'Callaghan Alexander was most enjoyable. We arrived at 9am and expected to be told we couldn't book in until the afternoon but our rooms were made available straight away. This was really wonderful as it was raining and after going out for a short time we headed back to have showers, warm up and dry the wet clothes. The beds were amazing - huge and comfortable. We have in the past be charged for asking for an ice bucket but this didn't happen and the staff were most helpful. It is ideally placed for all the main attraction in Dublin. It was useful to be able to use the sister hotel across the road to print out the return trip boarding passes and we weren't charged for this.

    The last morning we had breakfast in the hotel rather than going to Temple Bar and I have to say it wasn't worth the money, and we had to ask for our coffee three times before it finally arrived

    I enjoyed been in the city centre and easy access to all the tourist attactions. The only fault I had with the hotel was that the room I was sleeping in was located over four air conditioning vents and I was awake all night as I could not sleep with the noise. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever used in a hotel and the staff were pleasent and helpful.

    As stated above the noise from the airconditioning vents right below our bedroom window. I would just make sure I stayed in another room if I were to return to this hotel again.

    Excellent and friendly service.

    Bed was too soft for my wife who has back problems. We also felt breakfast should be included in the tariff given the current economic climate.

    Central location, comfortable bed, quietness of room (on 6th floor)

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Good location, comfortable rooms.

    Expensive saturday night rates because of Take THat concert in Dublin. Room had a bad odur because of rusty element in kettle that should have been removed and replaced before next guest.

  • Couple

    Quiet locatkion but close to city centre!

    Noisy airconditioning but too warm with it off. Mirror too high for desk couldnt sit to blow dry hair had to stand up to see... hard for long hair!!

    The hotel is very expensive and not good value for money. The reception staff are unfriendly, apart from one very helpful American called Sean. My room had a ventilator in the bathroom which made noise constantly. I ordered breakfast and a newspaper for my room and left the cards outside my door around 11pm but they were not collected. I mentioned this to staff on checking out but they gave no explanantion or apology, they seemed disinterested in any of the guests. I would not receomment this hotel and will not be staying there again.
