Fantastic Hotel Stay
I had a fantastic time staying at The North Star Hotel.
The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the City Centre which is so convenient. Entering the hotel I found it to be a really impressively modern entryway. We stayed in room 536 which was modern and comfortable. I was particularly impressed with the innovative light switch controls and being able to control the lights in the room through the television remote. The selection of TV channels and music available was fantastic, the bathroom was delightful also. We paid €12.50 for the full Irish breakfast which was hot and still tasted fresh even though we didn't go down to breakfast until 10 o'clock, breakfast was tasty and had a wide range of choices, I was also particularly pleased that breakfast didn't end until 11am as at some hotels breakfast is served extremely early meaning that after a night out you either have to force yourself out of bed or are likely to miss it altogether. All the staff I encountered were extremely friendly. Since my stay I've read other reviews which aren't as complimentary but personally I had a fantastic stay at the North Star and I'd return to Dublin just to stay at that hotel, as for the noisiness other guests complained about, on the 5th floor I didn't hear any but I would say staying right in the city centre, outside noise is to be expected and that's not really the fault of the hotel if you choose to stay somewhere that is on a main road. Oh and the bed was extremely comfortable too!!!
