Great location

I thought it was a really cool part of town, but quiet enough that I could enjoy a good night's sleep. See full review

good location, friendly staff

The OCallaghan Alexander has a central location, within 10-15 min walking distance into the St stephens Green/Grafton street area. I chose it because of its location and based on reviews. The room was comfortable, the amenities good, the only problem was that the air conditioning made some kind of boing like noise about every 15 minutes, which made it rather difficult to sleep and no one seemed to be able to pinpoint the cause.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

grafton street is one of the main shopping districts, but can be pricey. if you cross the liffey to jervis shopping center there are more reasonably priced stores. check out cows lane market in temple bar on saturdays for one of a kind jewelry and crafts

15°C Zimmer im kalten Dublin

Nachdem das Heizsytem offensichtlich nicht wärmte, sondern lediglich laut vor sich hin brummte, mussten wir die erste Nacht bei (ich übertreibe bestimmt nicht, schließlich schlafe ich zuhause bei zwischen 18-20°C gut und gerne) maximal 15 °C verbringen. Dies führte dazu, dass ich für den restlichen Urlaub krank wurde. Auf eine freundliche Beschwerde bzw, Hinweis des Heizfehlers wurde uns, nicht wie man anehmen könnte in einem 4 Sterne Hotel ein Zimmerwechsel vorgeschlafen, sondern ein lautstarker Heizstrahler ins Zimmer gestellt. Weiters: Nach dreimaligen Nachfragen und Absichern über das gratis Internet, dass einem bei Online-Buchung versprochen wird, und wie man dieses eingeben müsse (Code, Passwort...), wollte man schließlich bei Ende der Reise auch noch 12 Euro für das Internet kassieren. Von unserer Kreditkarte wurde übrigens auch um ganze 30 Euro mehr abgebucht, als im unsererseits gebuchten und gedruckten Vertrag. Man versicherte uns dies sei ein Fehler und die 30 Euro werden wieder rückverbucht, Glauben Sie auch hier will man auf Kosten der Kunden illegal ein paar extra Euros machen? Dass Dinge falsch laufen können ist mir klar, das Wichige in diesen Situationen ist, wie man damit umgeht, oder eben nicht damit umgeht. Da mit unsererm Anliegen eines 15°C Zimmers im 5°C kalten Dublin nicht in einer adäquaten Weise umgegangen ist, sondern vollen Preis verlangt hat und uns schließlich auch noch gerne die 12 Euro fürs Internet abbuchen wollte, sowie wir noch die nächste Kreditkartenrechnung abwarten müssen um uns zu versichern, dass die falsch abgezogenen 30 Euro auch dorthin zurück gelangt sind wo sie hingehören, würde ich dieses Hoten niemanden empfehlen und werde es auch selbst nicht wieder aufsuchen.

hotel correct

nous sommes restés deux nuits. l'hotel est agréable et le personnel très bien. le lit était très "mou" et très "creux". le petit déjeuner est très bien. par contre, le parking est un peu loin de l'hôtel mais surtout il n'est pas gratuit contrairement à ce qui est annoncé lors de la réservation. de plus la caisse ne prend que des espèces...

Klingt besser, als es ist

Die O'Callaghan-Hotels haben ja keinen schlechten Ruf. Von diesem profitiert das Alexander zu Unrecht. Ostern war es in Dublin sehr kalt. Auch in unserem Zimmer. Es gab zwar einen Klimaradiator, der aber hauptsächlich laut war und seine Heizleistung nur etwa 15 Minuten abgab. Das Personal ignoriert bei Eintritt oder beim Treffen am Gang die Gäste, ist aber nach Ansprechen recht freundlich. Lage ist recht praktisch, man muss aber gut zu Fuß sein.

Gut gelegen, uncoole Receptionistas

Grosse Zimmer, aber leider nicht sehr auf Kundenservice orientiertes Team an der Reception. Lässt sich jedoch umgehen in den gemütlichen Pubs, Coffe shops und Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe!

No es un hotel nuevo, pero si

No es un hotel nuevo, pero si acogedor. Las habitaciones son muy amplias con camas grandes. Calefaccion y aire acondicionado no funcionan y con ruido que tuvimos que apagar. Baño no de 4 estrellas. Buen sitio centrico detrás de Trinity College y cerca estación de tren. Tiene dos hoteles Ocallagan al lado aparentemente peores. La atencion muy buena y la limpieza regular. Se olía a tabaco en la habitacion.
