I loved my room at the Albany House. Like I said in the title, it's a cute little quiet hotel, but it's surrounded by a ton of really fun nightlife within walking distance. So when you're done exploring, it's easy to just walk back to the hotel and get a good night's sleep. One thing to note -- there is no elevator. I had to make two separate trips to lug my bags up four floors -- but I didn't mind. Some people might mind.
We were stunned when we opened the door to our room at Albany House. It was huge, obviously recently remodeled, with a sitting area and beautiful bathroom with a walk-in shower. The staff was great and the breakfast was good, if not extravagent. The location is also good. Just a short walk from Grafton Street shopping, etc. The only downsides are the lack of an elevator, which is pretty significant, and the clubs just across the street. We were not bothered, but fellow travelers who were at the other end of the building were kept up and disturbed by noise from folks out on the street.
This hotel is near an all night nightclub that generates constant noise from 12AM-5AM. As there is no air conditioning the choice is lack of sleep due to noise or heat. Staff is unresponsive about problems, rooms have pealing wall paper, paint. Breakfast is nice.
I picked Albany House mainly due to the price and location. As we arrived in a taxi, the driver kept commenting on the number of night clubs in the area, but when we turned the corner onto Harcourt Street, the area looked very nice, almost residential. We were checked-in quickly, then discovered that the Albany House doesn't have an elevator/lift (though, on checking, that is mentioned on their website). It was long haul to the 3rd floor with our bags, but our room was very nice-much larger than expected and completely remodeled recently. The carpet was soft and plush, the furniture attractive, and the bed was fine. The bathroom was also completely new with the best shower ever. There are several night clubs across the street, that go until about 4 AM, with lots of people in the street and lots of noise. We weren't as bothered as our co-travelers who were closer that side of the hotel. There is a nice breakfast room with continental buffet and very attentive and hard working staff. Free Wi-Fi (but you do have to create an account to use it) and very attentive desk staff. All-in-all, other than the elevator issue and some noise, Albany offers a good value in a great location, just a block off of St. Stephen's Square.
Hotel stay was OK, but we spent little time in the room. Staff was nice but not overly helpful. Facility needs some TLC-chipped paint, cracks, smelly carpet. Updated bathroom nice. Location really great for being a tourist in Dublin. Make sure you don't book at the same time as a school tour group- sound carries in the older building. The building has potential to be really special just needs constant TLC with the heavy use.
It was a very comfortable place to stay, in a great location.
Albany House is within walking distance of most museums,shopping,nightlife and many pubs and resturants.Basic but comfortable rooms in an interesting old Georgian building.Overall a good value as a base for my five day stay.
