Zentral gelegen, ruhig. Einziger Minuspunkt: die auf der Webseite eingeführte Nespresso Maschine im Zimmer hat gefehlt, stattdessen Wasserkocher und Nescafé :-(

komfortables und sehr angenehmes Hotel im Zentrum

Wir haben unseren Städtetrip nach Dublin sehr genossen, unter anderem auch wegen dem tollen Hotel. Durch die zentrale Lage kann die Stadt wunderbar zu Fuss erkundet werden (5min bis Temple Bar!). Mit der Buchung hat alles geklappt, das Hotel war sauber und der Service tiptop. Sollten wir wieder mal nach Dublin gehen, wird es wieder das Alex sein :-)
