This hotel is one of the best 3 star properties in Dublin, and the IFSC area is now a hive of activity which means this is a more and more sought after property. (GW 06/2013)
This hotel is perfectly located in Dublin city centre overlooking the historic Custom House building and just a short 10 minute walk from Temple Bar and the main shopping street. O'Connell Street is only a 5 minute walk with its array of bars, restaurants and shops. The LUAS tram system also runs next to the hotel, ensuring excellent transport links and Connolly Intercity train station is a 2 minute walk.
The medium-sized rooms are in good condition, and well-equipped. Rooms have a warm and cosy feel to them.
This is a traditional style 3-storey building, decorated in pink and black colours.
There is a charming Italian restaurant, located at the rear of the lobby: Il Vignardo In this stylish eatery beneath the curved, vine draped ceilings you will sample some of the best Italian food that Dublin has on offer. The menu features many regional classics of Tuscany and Campania regions using both specialist Italian ingredients as well as the best locally sourced fresh Irish produce with a well sourced authentic Italian wine list with many offerings by the glass. Great for a pre-theatre dinner before a show at The O2, The Abbey Theatre or The Gate Theatre. The restaurant also features a covered garden dining area. This restaurant comes highly recommended!
The lobby has recently been refurbished and is therefore in fantastic condition. It is welcoming, relaxing and one of the key areas that differentiate this hotel from others.
