We were early for check in, and we're told to come back in 45 mins or so. We could leave or luggage, all of which was fine, but a smile from the receptionist would have been nice, not very welcoming!! Our room was at the top of the house, 4 floors up, NO LIFT, a long climb up carrying our luggage. The room was very basic, nor very clean and in great need of redecorating, as is the whole hotel. Breakfast staff were friendly and polite, and the breakfast was OK! We paid £235 for a double room, for one night, and were expecting a room and service to reflect the price, we were disappointed. Highly over priced, and over all underwhelming!!!
For the premium price of £235 for a double we where expecting a lot better. The rooms where 4 floors up which was 78 stairs to climb (short route) with luggage. The room was very basic and not very clean. Bath had long black hairs in it on our arrival. Shower was terrible. Hot one minute cold the next with very little pressure. The paintwork was chipped and needed redoing. In room tea service- the milk was off, a fridge would not have went a miss with some bottles of water. Front desk staff when we arrived were not very welcoming, we felt as though we were an interruption to their conversation. Breakfast was ok some cold meats would have helped it though. Waiting staff at breakfast were very good and polite. They were one of the hotels positives the other being it was close to St. Stephens Green, Grafton St etc. The night porter couldn't even be bothered getting up to close the door and shouted across from reception for us to do it. Do yourself a favour and go to a 4 -5 star hotel for a similar if not cheaper price.
The room was very spacious and comfortable. The only slight negative was the noise from the tram passing by every few minutes, but the location made it worth that small annoyance. We enjoyed the breakfast, too!
Room was front facing but the windows were double and could not hear anything from the street. The hotel faces a very busy road with a club on the other side of the road. Bed comfortable and tea and coffee facilities in room and the room was huge. The building is old construction very nicely kept but one of the particularities is that is has several floors and many ,many stairs. There is no lift in the building, so try to request a room on the lower floors. Staff was nice. I recommend this hotel to young couples or singles, and families. I don't recommend to ederly because of the many stair's. Overall very good stay.
Albany House was perfect for us. We asked for a and received a very quiet room. It was on the main floor right next to the breakfast room. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a good selection of cold cereals, fruits, beautiful cheeses, croissants, bread and plenty of hot coffee. The location near Grafton Street was great.
We arrived on a Sunday morning at 7 AM exhausted, (no sleep on our flight which arrived at Dublin Airport at 5:15 AM.). Our room was not ready (understandably so); we had planned to drop off our bags and find a place for breakfast. The folks on staff explained there was no place open at that hour on a Sunday. So even though we had not spent the night on Saturday, they invited us to stay for breakfast and served us much needed coffee and breakfast while we could plan our day. It was much appreciated!
We stayed at Albany for three nights after making a reservation almost five months in advance. After reading reviews, I sent a request for rooms not facing the the street about a week before our stay. The response was that they would do what they could. On arrival, we were allocated rooms facing the street with no option to change. This all seemed strange given the length of time we had made the reservation. Needless to say the reviews were bang on. The noise from the street at night is absolutely ridiculous. It went on until at least 2:30 am and even went to 4:30 am one night. Closing the window did not help as the room became too warm to sleep properly. For this reason alone, I would look for alternate accommodation. The central city location to Trinity College is nice and the breakfast was fine. The room was good and no complaints with the bed or bathroom. Sadly, all this is lost because of the room location facing the street.
Booked the Albany House for a weekend trip, to see Iron Maiden at the '3 Arena'... Check-in was extremely smooth, and the welcome was warm and friendly. My room was located in the basement area of the property, which is probably quieter, as Dublin gets into the party spirit especially at weekends! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom had a nice shower unit, good quality towels.... It was all spot-on!! A continental breakfast is served every morning, which is quite adequate. The coffee is freshly made, and you can have orange juice, cereals, toast, croissants, fresh fruit salad, along with a lovely welcome from the staff. The hotel is located just off St Stephens Green. The area is beautiful, with local shopping nearby. Also a multitude of cafes, restaurants, great pubs in the vicinity, and Temple Bar around 12 minutes walk away. St Stephens Park is 5 minutes away. Everything about this hotel is positive, and I would gladly stay here again!
This was my second time staying at Albany House, and this trip we had friends who stayed there too. We always get an executive room as they are a little more spacious with a glassed in shower. We were on a top floor with a view of the street. Knowing how crazy it gets on weekends with the nightclubs I was worried the noise would be a bit much but I used a sound machine app on my phone that drowned it out; it actually wasn't as bad as I thought but be aware if you do get a room facing the street. The staff at breakfast are great, and Niall Ward who has been working as a driver for them for 20 years is wonderful (get him to pick you up from the airport if you can). I was just a little surprised they didn't keep any records or notes about previous guests (as we stayed 9 nights the last time) because we booked far ahead asking for our previous room and the front desk were surprised we'd even been there before. It's central to everything, walking distance to everything, and public transit is nearby.
Spent 3 nights here midweek for a short city break. Attractive Georgian property, minutes from St Stephens Green and main attractions and near drop off /pickup point for airport bus. Rooms comfortable, very clean and quiet, though a bit dark (we were in the basement) Lovely bright breakfast room and a good continental breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
