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.
Clean room,friendly staff,close to main shopping area of grafting street. Only complaint there is no lift and we were on the top floor so a little annoying when you have luggage. Room was a bit dated but clean which was fine for us as it's only a place to sleep after exploring the city!
Stayed here for one night, a flying visit to Dublin. When I booked in end Jan/ beginning Feb I requested a quiet room. We did not get this nor were we given an explanation as to why. I know requests aren't guaranteed but the noise level at night was beyond ridiculous! Could not get to sleep and when we did doze we were woken several times through the night with the nightclub across the street at the room above toilet flushing, strangely loud! Staff nice enough, breakfast lovely and 2 lovely guys serving the tea and toast. Pity about the noise as it's a great location around St Stephens green. 757 airport bus €15 pp return takes 35 minutes. Lots of places to eat and drink. Dublin is a fab city to visit and will return but not a different hotel/b&b
Old style Georgian property, hotel and room clean and tidy. Lovely bright breakfast room with a good continental breakfast. All the staff were friendly and nice. Room itself was a good size, with a adequate size ensuite. Only one issue and that was the fact that you could really hear when the room above had a shower or flushed the toilet due to where the water outlet is in the rooms. First morning it sounded like a flood in the room, but soon got used to it. As it is in a central location there was some noise at night from outside as there are a couple of nightclubs in the street but that's to be expected. Really nice park just down the road, St Stephen's Green, nice and tranquil place.
I came to Dublin for only two nights so I wanted a centrally located hotel and I chose the Albany House Hotel which is set in an old Georgian house. It is right next door to St Stephens Green, near Grafton Street, St Stephens shopping centre, Little museum of dublin, Trinity college and nearby to the start point for the 757, airlink bus to the airport. i had easy access to most of the sights I wanted to see quite nearby Reception was friendly, welcoming and helpful with all my questions . My room was number 38 and it was up three flights of stairs, The room was small and comfortable overlooking Harcourt street. There were places in Harcourt street and nearby for an evening meal. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and a shower and W.C and hairdryer. A TV was also provided. My bed was excellent and comfortable. Shower worked well too Breakfast runs from 7.30 to 9.30 and is taken in a ground floor dining room which is light and airy. Breakfast is a help yourself buffet of Orange juice, choice of cereals, yoghurts, fruit, cheeses and bread. the star of the buffet is the freshly made breads- Irish soda bread and an another equally delicious bread and of course, a great selection of Irish cheese. You are greeted on arrival and offered a choice of tea or coffee and the coffee was excellent. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and full of Irish charm. Check out is at 11. I think this is a great choice location and I certainly enjoyed my stay here and would happily return for another visit
