We attended a conference at Trinity College. This hotel was one that was suggested and from the pictures and the phone calls we made to book the hotel directly and to arrange ( and willingly pay) for an early check in after a 32 hour journey from Australia, we were looking forward to our stay. When we arrived there was one tired looking person at the reception who could not even welcome us but gruffly told us that check in is at 2pm. He only slightly changed his attitude when we explained that we had booked and paid for a room for an early check in due to our early arrival into Dublin. We had booked a king size room - this means a king size bed which is actually and thankfully comfortable in a single size shoe box! The room felt unclean - it had definitely NOT been vacuumed and the room is in dire need of maintenance - a coat of paint and block out blinds would be a good start. The staff in the Breakfast room were not much better. The waitress walked away as I tried to answer her question to coffee or tea. We were not offered anything else other than the poorly displayed buffet which looked thrown together. However I saw that other diners were having soft boiled eggs and porridge so I asked and was granted my request. As we were staying for three nights we put in a bag of laundry and took it down at 7.30am. The information book in the room states that if the bag is received at the reception by 8am it is returned by the afternoon. At 6pm I went to the reception to ask for my laundry only to have it handed back to me - it was forgotten and never sent out to be laundered! The man had the audacity to ask who was on reception in the morning - as I've noticed that no one wears name badges I could only answer that it was a female and that this certainly was poor service.

After arriving from the States on an overnight flight was really looking forward to crashing in a quite dark cool room that sounded so inviting on the web site. Picked it for location and especially that it had air conditioner. They selected a room that we could have early check in. " Nice of Them" Not so fast, no bellman or porter. Had to haul all our bags up stairs. The room unfortunately was right on a busy street, it sounded like the windows were open. The room was showing 80 on the thermostat and the air wasn't running. A quick call to the front desk we were informed the air wasn't running for several days," did we want a fan?" When I dropped by the front desk to inquire about the repair, the clerk said " why is everyone complaining about the air conditioner?" That night was spent with windows pried open and fan blowing. I forgot, no sheet on the bed, only a scratchy hot duvet. Luckily I could pull out the cover and use the outer lining as a cover. No restaurant within 3 blocks. So fortunate to only have to survive for one night. Collapse

I have previously stayed on the other 3 O'Callaghan hotels in Dublin, Stephens Green, Davenport, and the Alexander. Now it was the turn of the Mont Clare. I was pleasantly surprised. Upon entering the hotel lobby,(which is quite small), I was immediately greeted by a smiling face, and checked in very efficiently and promptly. I was given a suite (although I had just booked a single room), and this was quite spacious. The bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean. I had breakfast before departure, and woukld have to say that it was only average. it was buffet style, and the black and white pudding had obviously been there for a while, as they were pretty dried out. The only egg option was scrambled eggs... I asked for some fried eggs, and was given ONE.... The breakfast room was busy with tour group when I arrived, and all staff were wuite attentive. Collapse

I've read that booking directly with the hotel is best. It's said the the room you will stay in is less likely to be in a group of less desirable rooms allocated to 3rd party booking sites. NOT the case here. I arrived with reservation for a King room booked directly with the hotel 8 weeks earlier. Upon arrival I waited. And waited some more as the person on the desk, Rashid ordered his dinner. ( Fish.) I was given keys and went to a dingy and tired room which was located right next to the elevator and had two twin beds with five industrial size exhaust fans right outside the window. I went back downstairs with my reservation in hand and asked for the accommodation that I booked and paid for. I was told that there were no other rooms available. Rashid called his manager. They stared and murmured over the computer for a very long only to be interrupted by the arrival of Rashid's dinner. (Definitely fish) He asked if the manager could handle it from here, not that it mattered. I was then given keys to another dingy, tired double room, that can only be described as totally depressing. I also observed 2 other guests who were having a similar situation, this appears to be a bait and switch business model. Upon leaving I asked Rashid what I could expect to pay for a cab over the river, he wouldn't answer directly, I should have known I was about to scammed when the taxi Rashid called for me charged me 21 euro to go 3.4 Km, also a tired and old kick back scheme. At least they are consistent. This place looks nothing like the photos on their website, and it feels like a solemn and sad place, zero energy. Use caution if you arrange a cab or any services through the front desk. Advise avoiding this place. Collapse
