Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Ripley Court is not a particularly notable hotel, except for the fact that it is set back from O'Connell street and therefore ideally located to go and see matches at Croke Park or a concert at the O2 Arena. Moreover, its practical guest rooms are not too small and safety is one of the hotel's main assets!

    Location 7.85 /10

    The hotel is located in a pedestrian street perpendicular to O'Connell Street, Dublin's answer to Bond Street. The surrounding area is not very reassuring after nightfall though. O'Connel bridge is a 10 minute' walk away and Temple Bar, the O2 Arena, illustrious Croke Park, O'Connell Station and various shopping areas are even closer on foot. Allow approximately 20 minutes to go to and from Dublin's international airport, which is 8 mi away!

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The 96 functional rooms of the hotel are divided into 42 double rooms, 31 twins, 10 triples, 5 quadruples and 4 family rooms (a double room linked to a single). They are very spacious but they all have the same standard decoration, with red carpet on the floor, pale yellow paper on the walls and very little dark wood furniture. Those who are lucky will get a view of the small public park but the 11 roomson that side tend to get noise rising from the street, as well as the blare of the radio, despite the double-glazing. Amenities include a television (8 channels), an electronic safe, tea and coffee-making facilities a telephone, and that's it! 80% of the bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub, the rest have a shower and they are all too small to walk around in. The only facilities in the bathrooms are a hair-dryer and a soap dispenser.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    The first desk that you see on entering the hotel is not the reception, but security! Open in 1999 in a much older building which was renovated for the occasion, the elongated shape of Ripley Court looks a little like a casino. After walking to the end of a corridor, guests will find the spacious reception hall, fitted with a large counter and yellow lights. The various common areas which surround it let very little daylight in. The main bar is set over two floors: upstairs, you will find brown bench seats made of imitation leather, along with a low ceiling and green carpet with lily flowers; whereas downstairs is dominated by an 'all-wood' interior decor. It is a shame that the corridors are not immaculate at all times.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The only buffet served during the day, in the unattractive annex of the lobby, is breakfast. Guests, and guests only, can order afst food from the bar, between 3:00pm and 1:00am. Next to the hotel's main door, another door framed with glass panes leads the way to the fast food restaurant 'Deli-cious', which looks like a canteen and is open to all. You can eat in or take away. Salads are laid on ice and another area is dedicated to hot dishes. You will find Irish breakfast among the many dishes and prices posted on a large board against the wall. 'Deli-cious' shuts at 5:00pm.

        Hôtel de caractère, décoration vintage. La propreté est cependant relative. Les repas sont assez complets et de qualité. L'hôtel est bien situé, à quelque minute à pieds du quartier Temple Bar. En résulte un bon rapport qualité prix.

      The Best Western Academy Plaza is a safe bet in a good location to visit the town and have a good night's sleep. Although its style is resolutely modern, with facilities to match, there is unfortunately hardly any natural light in the various spaces, which are consequently rather yellowish.

      The classical facade of the Gresham hotel, aginst which the hotel's interior pales in comparison, stands proudly on the famous street of 'O'Connell Street.' Indeed, its former glory now makes it seem outdated.

      The Days Inn Talbot is next to O'Connell Street. It lacks charm, but is well-kept and very functional. You couldn't be better located for a look around the city's must-see sites: it is the perfect base for a no-frills break.

      Lynam's, on O'Connell Street, could be a charming little hotel, but it turns out to be quite the opposite, displaying a poor level of maintenance and awful service. Its only strong point is its location on Dublin's 'Bond Street'.

      This large, handsome and classic hotel is partly housed in the building of a former bank opposite Trinity College. Some wonderful traces of its past are still present in parts of the hotel, like the great hall where events are organised and the bar in the former strongroom, where guests can sip on award-winning cocktails. The delicious afternoon tea is another unmissable aspect of any stay in this highly comfortable establishment.

      The Trinity Capital, bang in the city centre and opposite Trinity College, has a few surprises hidden up its sleeve. You can forget about any ideas of elegance and refined style; here, the decor is exuberant, elaborate, out of the ordinary, and full of contrasts. Although the communal spaces are full of curiosities, the rooms are quite the opposite!

      This big hotel on the banks of the Liffey can be seen from quite a distance. The Jurys Inn Custom House is a fairly modern hotel not far from the centre of Dublin and it has the advantage of being particularly spacious - a rarity in the Irish capital - as well as clean and functional (its recently renovated rooms make a pleasant 'pied à terre').

This large Palladian house, Irish in style, blends old and modern features perfectly. The original building was actually the Duke of Leinster's summer residence, but now houses 18 magnificent suites.

      Tucked away in a posh residential area in the south of Dublin, the Four Seasons lives up to the group's famous reputation for luxury. While there is not much to do in the surrounding area, the hotel itself has plenty to fill both guests' days and evenings, whether it be in the restaurant, one of the three bars, or the superb spa and swimming pool. Unless you're in Dublin on business, in which case note that the hotel has no fewer than six meeting rooms.

      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.
