    Location 9.97 /10

    This establishment is found at the very heart of Temple Bar, on the busiest street in this small neighbourhood, which also happens to be the capital's nightlife hub. Trinity College and O'Connell Street are literally a stone's throw away and the Aircoach, which is a great way of getting to and from the city's international airport, also stops nearby.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    Corridors with cream-coloured carpeting and white walls lead off to the hotel's 125 guest rooms, which look out over either the surrounding rooftops or the main road running along Temple Bar. The rooms here come in various categories, namely Standard, Deluxe, Suites (rooms, apartments, and Junior Suites), and penthouse, with the Standard rooms housed in the old wing and the Deluxe in the new one. Apart from their size, the differences between these 2 categories are minimal. The Deluxe rooms come with a king size bed. The virtually all white guest rooms feature stylish decor that manages to highlight every last detail, such as the headboard, the use of cerused wood, the Stark chairs, the white marble desk, etc. The emphasis here is on making the room look as uncluttered as possible, and you'll even find that all of the amenities are tucked away in the wardrobes and cupboards. In-room amenities include a wall-mounted plasma screen television (with a keypad underneath), very discreet (though not in the Standard rooms) individual air conditioning, a very good mini bar complete with tea and coffee-making facilities, a safe, various electrical sockets, an Internet connection, a large stylish mirror, a phone, and an iron and ironing board. The frosted glass sliding doors lead through to the bathroom, where you'll find a cream-coloured marble vanity unit, a circular wash basin, a mirror high up on the wall, a large bathtub, bathrobes and slippers, a hair dryer, and a fine selection of White Company hospitality products. There are also light fittings suspended from ropes on the ceiling and the decor in the bathrooms even includes a small wooden ladder. The apartments are also furnished along the same lines: bright and minimalist, and decorated in shades of white and cream with a few splashes of colour (particularly purple). The hotel refers to these as "Home@TheMorgan". They feature 2 distinct parts: a lounge area furnished with 2 white sofas, a large plasma screen television, etc.; and the bedroom. There is also a well equipped kitchenette along one section of wall. The penthouse is also worth a look, particularly as the beautiful rooftop terrace houses a 50s-version "Airstream" straight from the USA. You really can't help but fall in love with this wonderfully charming retro aluminium caravan.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    When it was built in 1998, the Morgan housed some 60 or so guest rooms, but with the addition of a new extension in 2007, it now has 125. The hotel was renovated in 2009. You'll find the hotel has 2 separate entrances side by side, one for the hotel and the other, which can be less accessible at times, providing direct access to the bar, which gets very busy during the week and even more so at weekends. You may also find the decor in the communal parts of the hotel somewhat astonishing, particularly the beautiful chandelier placed on the floor (with great effect!), or the Mona Lisa revealing her backside for all to see in one of the lifts, etc. The colours used (cream, violet, and red) blend together and contrast, creating a very tasteful effect. From day to night, the hotel transforms itself from a restaurant, providing trendy surroundings throughout the day, into a very busy bar at night. There is even a DJ in-house during the weekend (Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays), when there is an entrance fee. Beyond the bar-restaurant you'll find the Internet corner concealed behind a grey curtain, whilst to the rear lays the inner courtyard, complete with white wrought iron bench seats, leather pouffes, wooden tables, and a cream-coloured stone-paved floor - a real treat for smokers!

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 10:00am during the week and until 10:30am at weekends in the Morgan Bar. Adjacent to the lobby, it consists of a long buffet of fruit juices, smoothies, pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, cold cuts, and cheeses down one side, and another serves an Irish breakfast down the other, with a total of 8 dishes on offer. It's very easy to move from one choice to the next. The decor here consists of zebra-print pouffes and large, deep red sofas. Just a few steps up there is a raised level furnished with dark parquet flooring, long grey bench seats, and long counters, with grey curtains dividing the space up for a tad more privacy, making it a great place to meet up with friends! Lunch and dinner are also served at the hotel, with a variety of tapas and la carte dishes available from 12:00pm to 9:00pm. Do bear in mind that on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, the bar is always heaving, despite the entrance fee, and many are refused entry. The music is also very loud. Don't forget to take a look at the award-winning (2008) cocktail list, as there's plenty of choice!

    To know

    Computer and Wifi access are free of charge. You might find it difficult to sleep here given the inevitable noise, particularly at weekends.

      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.

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.

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.

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.
