Reception team were very friendly and helpful
Some seriously rude staff who don't know the meaning of hospitality, manners or customer care. Woken up by accommodation staff banging doors incessantly both mornings and an awful breakfast experience due to staff both mornings of our stay. Not the luxury experience I paid for.
The Alex was wonderful! Very comfortable, clean and we experienced excellent service. We walked to FZ Barkley for dinner which was very close and had an excellent dinner.
We could only stay one night. With the COVID-19 pandemic Dublin was just beginning to close down. My husband and I felt the need to cut our vacation short and head back to America. We were actually on the last plane out of Dublin for the US , at least on American Airlines. We were so bummed because The Alex was so nice and in a great spot!
It’s a modern hotel, with a lovely atmosphere. All the employees were super nice and the breakfast was outstanding. Don’t even get me started about the beds, we slept like a log! We really had a great time here.
Modern clean hotel with super friendly staff. A great hotel in a good location. The decor is fabulous. A real treat!
Breakfast room service
Crib the provided us was stained and in terrible shape. They did replace it after we called. There are no hooks in the bathroom to hang towels, no robes or slippers, and only instant coffee and black team(no decaf tea) in your room. They also don’t have a doorman When we called downstairs to request help with our bags upon check out we were told they were too busy and wouldn’t be available for “a while” so we did it our selves. However when we showed up downstairs there was a porter hanging around who didn’t didn’t help with the door while we were carrying 6 bags between two of us and a baby. For a four star place it really lacks some basic amenities which is disappointing.
