    Historical Traveler Reviews Albany House Dublin

    Great Location


    Went at a busy time to see U2. Had two triple rooms. Clean, affordable, great location. Close to shops, nightclubs and away but about 20 mins walk from hustle and bustle of grotty Temple Bar. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful at a very busy time. Will definately return.

    A disgrace to the hospitality industry


    If service is NOT what you are looking for; consider this hotel. The hotel staff (at the front desk, and even the cleaning staff) were unbelievably rude. I have stayed from 4* hotels to hostels and guesthouses all over the world, and I have never felt so strongly inclined to write a review. Then again, I have never been insulted by hotel staff. I have never seen a place where you have to beg and plead with the doorman to let you into a place you had traveled across the ocean to sleep. I have never had my passport 'reappear' at the front desk when it had not been missing. This place is cheap, well situated, and clean - just don't expect any of the staff to recommend a nice place to eat. It won't happen.

    Hated it! Worst hotel staff ever!


    Terrible hotel staff, not worth it. When we arrived to the hotel, there was a nightstaff man that needs to ring the door open. He would only allow one of us to walk in to check-in, making the other guests stand outside in the cold. Then when friends from another hotel came to meet up with us, they were not allowed to go upstairs to the room. The front door is locked at all times and the person at the desk is the only one that can open the door. The rooms were clean and spacious for the price that you are paying, but it was the worst and meanest hotel staff I have ever experienced during my travels. They try to kick you out of your room when they want to clean it before noon, even if you are staying another night. Then they try to charge extra for anything possible, even trying to change the rate at which you book the hotel at. We ended up paying an extra fee and switching hotels, because we could not stand having to deal with the hotel staff. We were expecting everyone in Dublin to be exceptionally nice people, which they are; except in this hotel.

    I'd recommend it.


    The Albany House really try!

    Whilst it has its shortcomings - it is nevertheless excellent value for money (at least by Dublin standards) and they do an excellent continental breakfast.

    Great Hotel


    Albany Hotel -- A great location - just a block from St. Stephen Square; easy walk to town center, Grafton St., etc. Moderate rate - we felt it was a good bargain. Car park nearby

    Good facilities and value at Albany House


    After some searching on the web, looking at hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs, I chose Albany House for a few nights in Dublin at the start and the end of a holiday in Ireland. A great choice - excellent rooms, 24-hour desk service, helpful staff and, very importantly, an excellent location. From the Albany, you can walk to everything in the city, enjoying the path through St Stephens Green on the way. In a hurry? Buses and the new Luas tram goes right by the door. And the fire alarm system works very well - someone smoked in their room and got us all out at 12.30 am! Cost was considerably less than other hotels in the area and competitive with good B&Bs. I got a better rate in response to a direct e-mail to the hotel than was available through any of the agencies on the web.

    If you like noise & cold showers


    This is not a good choice of a hotel for Dublin. We stayed two nights in mid-May. There was no hot water in the shower the day we arrived nor the next morning. The location was very noisy and it was hard to sleep. The staff was polite but unhelpful. This is not a good choice of hotel.

    Great location at a reasonable price!


    This is an affordable city center hotel with simple rooms, friendly staff and hearty breakfasts. We did a lot of comparison shopping before we travelled, and we felt this was a great deal at a great location. There is a busy street in front, so if you're a light sleeper request a room at the back.

    Nice Place


    Spent two nights here. Hotel was conveniently located. The plumbing was a bit noisy but the service and breakfast was really good.

    Enjoyed the stay


    We had an excellent weekend there. They had just reopened after refurbishement and there were major roadwoks outside but none of that affected the enjoyment. The hotel was both quiet and central which is great if you want to leave the crac and stag nights behind when you go to be. Rooms wrer well furnished. Breakfast excellent. There is no restaurent so you will have to eat out, no hardship. NB Hotel is NO SMOKING

    ... to my hostel at 10.30pm and promptly went to bed. I dragged myself out of bed the next morning and went into town. I went on a walking tour of the city and went down Grafton St and explored St Stevens Green. Yesterday I went on a tour down to Wicklow County. This is where a lot of movies are filmed like PS I Love You, Braveheart and Excalibur. We also visited whats left of an old monastery built between the 9th and 12th centuries. This tour concluded with a free shot of whiskey ...

    ... since his mum (my GranB) was born there. My GranB has 7 brothers and sisters and when I was in Dublin I met them all and my GranB’s dad (my dad’s Grandpa, which makes him my Great Grandpa, who is 97). So when I was in Dublin, especially after Connemara, I met a lot of my extended (like, way extended) family. Check out some of my photos to see me with all my family.

    Before we went to Connemara, it was my GranB’s ...

    ... around the city for an hour or so before grabbing our bags and walking to the new digs. It is a bit out of town, but Dublin is a fairly small city in area and it only took us just over half and hour to walk there. We needed some quiet time, but the room wasn't quite ready for us, so we headed to a hotel lounge down the road and had a quiet drink while using their internet.

    We settled in, did laundry and read for the rest of the evening, Bliss.

    ... Direction concert. Finally made it back to O'Connell street and found the number 122 bus (thanks to Gerry) and made it back to the B&B. Refreshed ourselves and then walked down the street...and down the a neighborhood bar and restaurant called The Hole in the Wall. Very Irish-looking/feeling and filled with locals. Ordered fish and chips and the fish was delicious...and very fresh. Of course, the chips were good, too!

    Walked back home and took showers. I ...

    Arrived in Dublin late afternoon and checked into our hotel, the Crown Plaza. After returning the car, we walked to Murphy's for some great ice cream. We listened to a few songs in St. Steven's Square where there were many St. Patrick's Day events going on. After we walked around for an hour trying to find a place for dinner. On the way, we stopped in to watch the end of the ...
