Disappointing to say the least!

As a party of 6, we stayed in 3 rooms. Two of the rooms, on the 2nd floor, had obviously just been renovated as there was a very strong smell of paint. The initial reaction to the room is that it is beautiful and stylish, but after staying in it for a while, issues become apparent.... The bathroom floor becomes very wet as the screen only shields half the shower area. There is nowhere to put a towel within reach of the shower, so you have to drip from the shower to the sink area to retrieve a towel. There is an extractor fan, but this didn't appear to do anything? In the bedroom the lovely muted lighting is useless for doing hair or make up and, unless you want to be fully dried and dressed when doing this, you can't open the curtains to gain sufficient light, as you are completely overlooked by other buildings and the street and there is no net curtain etc to preserve modesty! There were other more significant issues though...Upon opening the window, it lurched quite significantly and appeared to be in danger of falling out until my son fiddled with a catch in the mechanism which seemed to stabilize it. The door to the room, which had been freshly painted, did not close smoothly and we were careful to check it was properly shut each time we left the room, however when we came back to the room one afternoon, after it had been serviced that morning, we found that the door was not properly closed and did not need us to use the keycard to enter! The major issue for all of us was the renovation work which began at 7 am each morning and continued through the day....hammering and drilling are not the nicest of background noise. The staff were cold and barely helpful and only gave useful information if pushed further. Do not waste your money on breakfast either....go out to any of a hundred nearby cafes and restaurants, for much better (and cheaper) fare! I really dislike having to leave such a negative review of a place, but I am struggling to think of any positives other than the pretty room and the good location. Sad to say that we will not be recommending this hotel or returning to it. Collapse

I recently done the vhi mini marathon and after words we went into the establishment for a well deserved drink, we purchased our drinks sat down at a table that people were leaving from. A waiter then came over cleared all the table including the drinks we had just purchased, I went to the bar to ask what happened my drink only to be meet by a manager who said were was your drink? My reply in front of me on my table. The waiter den came back with the tray he had used to take the drinks and put 2drinks on front of me that looked like vodka and said well one of them is yours and walked off! I explained to the manager I would like a new drink which I was told that's ur drink you don't need another one. Management then said I/we should have waited till the table was cleared before we BOTHERED sitting down. Found this to he highly rude to paying customers, if he can't handle the heat when they are so busy he shouldn't be in charge of this place!! Collapse

Not an easy place to find, and with the construction on the roads, nearly impossible to get to. The woman at the reception desk was the WORST person we meet in two weeks in Ireland. Arrogant, not helpful, cold and not very polite. I was stunned. All of the Irish were gracious, friendly, helpful. Well, we met the only one in a service positions that wasn’t. Parking is down the street and expensive, 12 euros a night. That’s their discount they are so proud of. A cold, dark dangerous looking parking lot with so much security and gates it is hard to navigate through it. AND no to convenient for the hotel location. No valet parking either. No doorman or bellhop to help with luggage. A real PIA. Would never stay here again. The breakfast was the worse selection we had in Ireland. Not much going for this hotel in our eyes. Stay somewhere, anywhere else. Collapse

I went to Alexander Hotel for a dinner with my colleagues and I had a great experience. The server called Fabio was very kind and we got an amazing service. Also he made the most delicious Irish Coffee that I have tried in Dublin. The food was great and they have a cosy ambient. But I had noticed that the waiter was alone and the place was quite busy for him being in his own and even he was very good we could see he was exhausted. So I believe they should have more staff in order to offer a even better service. Collapse
