Disappointing Dublin Lodging Search...Are There Any Hotels With Some Character???

I am trying to find a hotel or B & B with some character in Dublin's city center and I am completely striking out. Can anyone recommend a place that has some character and is in a good location. All of the hotels look generic and boring.

Although it would be great to find something cheaper.

Here are some listings and descriptions from my Ireland guidebooks.

Albany House - Classic furniture, high ceilings, Georgian elegance, and some street noise. Request one of the four huge "superior" rooms which are the same price as standard rooms. Rooms are quieer in the back.

Eliza Lodge - It's priced like a hotel, looks like a hotel, but it's still a guesthouse. Its 18 bedrooms are fabulous: comfortable, spacious, and--due to its position right over the Millenium Bridge--with great views of the Liffey.

La Stampa Hotel - La Stampa is a onderful, atmospheric little hotel on trendy Dawson Street. It has 24 lovely Asian-influenced white rooms with Oriental ratan furniture, exotic velvet throws, TV, air conditioning and minibar.

If you are interested in a B&B, some that get great reviews here are Glenogra House (in Ballsbridge), Kilronan House, and Number 31, both of which are in Dublin. We stayed in Simmons Townhouse in Ballsbridge once but can't find a link to it.

Thanks for the suggestions. They all look great and now I will have the trouble of choosing just one!
