Stayed for one night with my partner, we were attending a show in the Grand canal theatre.
The hotel decor and feel is quite generic as so many modern hotels are these days and lacked a bit of atmosphere but the staff were friendly, the room was basic but clean, the bed was barely a double and not very comfortable.
The extraction fan in the bathroom stayed on all the time even with the door closed and the light switched off which was noisy during the night, there were also a gang of local youths drinking, shouting and singing at the back of hotel from early evening and throughout the night which we could hear quite clearly on the 4th floor.
On the plus side each room has an ice bucket and each floor has an ice machine which was a bonus for those who enjoy a drink in their room, the room came with the usual comforts such as tea/coffee making facilities an ironing station and multi channel TV.
Breakfast was buffet style and was good, The location is fine if attending the Grand canal theatre but there is a lack of Bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
Parking in the area is a problem as the hotel has no parking facilities, I would recommend pre booking the car park located near the hotel as when we arrived there in the early afternoon it was full, we then had to park at the Convention centre nearby which charges what the sign says is €15 per day which we assumed was for 24 hrs but is not, the rate is till midnight and then you are charged another €15 which resulted in a very hefty €30 for an overnight stay.
Overall the hotel was fine but I had expected more based on the previous reviews and the room rate to stay for one night which was in excess of €200 per room.
Average hotel with above average room rates.
