    Pleasant and helpful Staff on arrival. Very good location for walking along River side and access to Temple Bar (immediately behind), shops and major sightseeing places - Trinity College, GPO etc.

    Quite expensive compared to comparable London Hotels. Very noisy in bar at morning Coffee/Brunch time due to high ceilings and large space. Can't be helped. Lounge was closed for renovation, so had to sit in Bedroom for a break. Temporary, I assume.

    Location was good and our room was spacious.

    Hotel was cold and sterile as well as the people in reception. Expected a cozy ambiance in a historical place. Bed linens were shabby and the bath towels were frayed.
