Fodor's Review

Built with business guests in mind, this high-rise hotel in the middle of the International Financial Services Centre has been a surprise hit with all travelers interested in the business of good value and clean, quiet rooms with good amenities. The office-block-like exterior is indistinguishable from many of the financial institutions that surround it, but the public spaces are bright and cheery, if a little uninspired. The bedrooms—big by Dublin standards—are all

straight lines and contemporary light-oak furnishings. Shades of blue and taupe create a calm environment (the hotel claims its environment is guided by Eastern philosophy, no less), but for true serenity try to get a room at the front with great views out over the Liffey.

A Modern Hotel with no atmosphere

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2002. The hotel was new and appeared to be mainly used by business people rather than tourists. The room was ok, clean and modern, ours was small but I think we were just unlucky. Breakfast was good. The hotel itself is not fantastically situated, and is a 10 minute walk in the centre of Dublin. This doesn't sound much but after you've done it a couple of times a day for 3 days it becomes a bit much!
