    Location 4.19 /10

    It is located next to the very busy Merrion Road, not far from the Concert Hall and just opposite the Four Seasons Dublin and the Royal Dublin Society, a large convention centre. It is also close to the Sandymount suburban rail station, numerous embassies (France, China, etc.), and the residence of the former Irish Prime Minister. The Aircoach takes 30 minutes to get to Dublin international airport (20 minutes by taxi).

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 34 guest rooms are divided into 3 categories: 12 'Classic' (double/twin), 12 'Deluxe' (doubles), and 10 suites. Many of them have a fireplace. The windows either look out onto other residential houses or the large street outside. The rooms in the 'Classic' category are almost as large as those in the other categories, but they are decorated in a more basic fashion, with less intricately worked window frames for example. They have a green carpeted floor, cream walls and bedspreads, wood furniture, rather soft beds, a television, individual air conditioning, and a telephone. The spacious bathrooms are provided with a hydromassage bathtub, a hair dryer, and a variety of hospitality products. The suites are housed in long, spacious rooms. The beds are all in different styles: wood, iron, four-posters. The positive points in the bathroom are the separate shower cubicles and 2 wash basins. Room service is available until midnight.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The large 2 storey house dating back to the 18th century is located on a street corner. The Edwardian red brick walls match the design of the other houses in this district and have an attractive cover of vegetation. A small lawn, a few flowerbeds, and some trees complete the stylish setting. There is a small car park at the front of the hotel with space for up to 4 cars. A long corridor leads from the entrance doorway down to the little reception with its wooden counter. On the way, large windows allow you to see into the various lounges, which themselves have views of the outside through their bow windows. The large lounge has an impressive moulded ceiling. The spaces are uncluttered and there is no shortage of fireplaces. All in all, the decor is understated, but what features it does have are full of variety. The rooms are housed on 3 different floors, which can be reached via the staircase, although a lift does serve part of the building.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    There is a breakfast space where continental and Irish versions of the meal are served from 6:00am to 10:00am. The restaurant has a large patio bathed in light. In 2009, it overlooked the worksite next door where the owner was planning to open a second guesthouse and a spa. If you don't feel like the buffet (cereals, fruit, etc.), there is a menu. Very light meals are available during the rest of the day, until midnight. The menu does not offer much choice (sandwiches, cheeseboard, etc.), but it could be worse. Guests can sit in the adjoining lounges or take their meal in their rooms. The wine list is more extensive that the food menu, and includes a good range of French tipples. Afternoon tea is also served here.

    To know

    Use of the computer facilities and Wifi access are free of charge. The Merrion Hall is also open during the Christmas holidays. Just next door, a little well-being centre was due to open in January 2010, as well as a new hotel structure, adjacent to the Merrion Hall. Guests staying here will be able to use the new facilities on offer. The owner also has a third hotel half a mile away: the charming Aberdeen Lodge.

      The Davenport hotel is housed in a former church which dates back to 1863 and enjoys a central location not far from Trinity College and St. Stephen's Green park. Needless to say, its façade is unique, and the fine interior decor is impeccable as the hotel was renovated at the end of 2008. Basically, this is a good place to stay for those who like to keep it simple!

      It really is difficult to identify the plus points of this hotel, somewhat lost along a very busy avenue far from the capital, not to mention to unpleasant odour of the surrounding marshlands. It makes a functional and very basic pied-a-terre, but nothing more!

      A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, The Morrison was not built in honour of the famous rock singer Jim Morrison, but it does pay tribute to Irish musicians, bands and artists. Reopened in February 2013 after 10 weeks of refurbishment, The Morrison now boasts a designer interior - a rare choice of decor in this city where most hotels are decorated in a more classic style. Add to this the delicious restaurant and the art gallery, and The Morrison is unquestionably a safe bet in Dublin.

      The beautiful 5-star Dylan Hotel was not built in honour of the famous rock star. No, the Dylan simply chose to take up residence in the street of the same name. Now a small hotel with 44 guest rooms, the Dylan was first a hospital, then a hotel, before becoming the Dylan Hotel. It has been welcoming guests into its entirely unique, modern and elegant interior since 2007. Far from being a chain hotel, the Dylan has a bar, restaurant and lounge, but unfortunately no well-being centre.

      The Clarion, opened in 2001, is a pleasant modern hotel without much character. It is ideal for fans of hotel chains or, more generally, those looking for a good well-being centre! Apart from the massage rooms, sauna and hammam, the hotel also has a lovely large swimming pool, which is quite rare for the Irish capital. Neither too big nor too small, the Clarion Hotel enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the city centre, on the banks of the River Liffey.
