Liked: Location was great; building had a lot of character.

Disliked: Staff was quite dismissive and not particularly knowledgable when we arrived. We also did not get the room we had reserved. All of the drains were clogged, the computer mouses didn't work very well. They charged for luggage storage. All little annoying things that, when combined, made our stay unpleasant.

City break
Romantic getaway

09 July 2010

Liked: It was smack in the centre of Dublin.

Disliked: At night it was incredibly noisy, there is a big round window in the door that leaks a bright light, whenever someone in the adjacent rooms opened their taps, it made a lot of noise. And finally, and this must be the first time ever that I've had to complain about this: the shower was just too hot.
