Young vibrant area. Well maintained hotel.
Checkin time is 3 PM. Of course we were beat after a transatlantic flight as a senior citizen couple. S sweet check-in agent offered us a quiet room if we did not mind waiting one hour. The room was indeed quiet as it faced an inner courtyeard air vent. Not pretty, but after I woke up at 1 PM thinking there was a washer machine thumping in the room and finding out it was the band/bass/drum that I was hearing, I appreciated our inner location more. Of course, the rubber earbuds as part of the amanities should have given me a clue.... Reception told me the river view's were $ 50 more per night and with the noise level exposure in Temple Bar, we decided to get our pleasure walking around, rather than in the room. Wood floors which I love - wal to wall always gives me creepy crawler feelings. Rain shower in bathroom, lovely but the floor whould slant a little more towards the drain since the glass half door allowed too much flooding in the bathroom. Bed was comfy with white duvet. Breakfast was pricey at $ 50 for two but there are other breakfast options nearby.
