    Historical Traveler Reviews Albany House Dublin

    Great Location

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Gaelic and Good Coffee

    Landed into Dublin Airport around 4:30am, and spent the next half hour wandering about whilst embracing the innate creepiness of an empty and half-lit airport. Loving that Dublin is pushing the Gaelic, with all signage around the airport bi-lingual. Also made a beeline for the nearest barista and downed the first decent espresso I've had in ...

    ... we hurried over to Leo Burdock's by midnight just in time to be the last customer of the night for what they say are the best fish & chips in Dublin. We don't have the experience to say whether that's true, but we can vouch that it was darn good.

    We can't believe that tomorrow we leave Dublin. It feels like we only just arrived! We'll be getting up early this time to start our first day of driving in Ireland. Ought to be ...

    ... first destination of Malahide because there was too much traffic, and ended up at Skerries, beside the beach. Went for a walk around a little peninsula in the middle of it and the boys were very excited to spot two seals. We left quite early and stopped in Laytown beside the beach for breakfast. Filled up with diesel in Drogheda (it's cheaper in Ireland) before getting on a motorway to Northern Ireland. We did a little loop around the Ring of Guillon ...

According to its website, Powerscourt Gardens were voted the #3 gardens in the world by National Geographic and they are very impressive. First, however, we had to get there.

    ... had us all laughing. We arrived at the Guinness Brewery and we were treated to a very interesting layout of the brewing process over seven floors, built around a huge pint glass atrium! It was like stepping into an enormous empty glass! The journey starts on the ground floor, where one can discover the four natural ingredients needed to make the beer - barley, hops, yeast and water (from the Wicklow mountains). On the first floor, screens ...
