clean hotel/friendly staff/10-15 min. walk to city
Booked 2 rooms, one for my husband and I, one for our 3 grown children. Arrived at 11a.m. asked for early check in. Very nice gentlemen at the counter found two rooms that were ready, both with AC, which I had requested, very grateful. Rooms were nice and clean! We had a lovely view. Pressure in our shower was weak and the drain slow. My husband pointed it out to the staff and it was fixed. but that only lasted a day. We were on the go all week, so didn't get a chance to tell them again until we checked out, we just dealt with it. The restaurant/bar is very good, moderately priced. One night we got back from a tour at 9:45, tired and hungry. They stop serving food at 10, but the waitress was kind, got our order in quickly and we were eating by 10:15. Hotel is a bit off the path, which we wanted, we like to walk. Walk into the city is nice, especially if you cut through the beautiful St. Stephen's Green. Staff was accommodating in calling a cab when needed. One negative had to do with a staff member. Another evening we got in late, I inquired at the front desk where to get food, the girl told me places were closed, and most people eat before 10. It was 10:05, she said the only place to get food was Burger King or McDonalds. In talking to the bar tender we found out there was an area 15 minute walk with places open late, we walked and found plenty of places to get food. Staff should be aware of late night places to eat and not make people feel weird for asking.
