"Nice hotel in great location."
Stayed here one night on a country wide tour of Ireland. Staff were nice and the room was fairly modern and clean, but our room looked out only to an office building right next door so I can't say this was a "5". The hotel is right downtown and an easy walk to many restaurants, bars and shops. However the parking garage is very hard to find..., located what appears to be the wrong way down a one way street.

Great price, comfortable rooms, and great location. The neighborhood around the hotel had good restaurants and shopping. I would choose it again if I return to Cork.

"Great, comfortable hotel"
Clean and modern. Helpful staff. Nice spa on site. Just a few blocks from the center of Cork. Seems designed for business travelers, but was a great stopover on our vacation. Bigger rooms and better service than than most European hotels.

"One night pre-cruise stay"
We stayed one night to catch up with a cruise ship which we'd missed due to air delays. We arrived, ate a meal and left the next morning so we spent very little time there. The room was very nice, except the mattress was too hard for us, the staff was excellent, and the one meal we had was fine. It was a good choice for a one night emergency stop.

Check in was fast + efficient room was good size. There was no WiFi in the room the beds were the creakiest we have ever slept in. There was no lifeguard on duty in the pool which had a lot of kids and the amount of water on the floor was vet dangerous. Otherwais location of the hotel was perfect close to city centre and the food was good.

"disappointing"
room faces into the centre of the hotel resulting in no window to open. even with air conditioning at low the room when sleeping became uncomfortably warm. we had breakfast on the second morning, had to queue for over half an hour before getting a table.Breakfast was average and self service. We could have had a far better quality breakfast in a local cafe served and at a cheaper price

Just a one nighter but really enjoyed the facilities. Ate in the restaurant a lovely meal and then enjoyed a few drinks in the fabulous lobby area. The only fly in the ointment was the place was packed with kids whose parents enjoyed a quiet drink whilst the rest of us had to endure unsupervised kids running riot around the place.

"The inner room"
The room faced on to an internal courtyard, with lack of natural light, which made the room darker than I would have preferred. There was also a lack or privacy as it was overlooked from a corridor to the lifts. I assume these internal rooms are randomly allocated & not reserved for travellers who do not book directly. It might be advisable to request an "outer" room. On the plus side the pool was good.

"Great hotel with wonderful staff"
This hotel is well located for views of the river and an easy walk to the shopping areas. It is very close to the bus station and a 10 minute walk to the train station, which was very convenient. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff attentive, worth the extra supplement. Staff were very helpful with looking after luggage and allowing me to print off my boarding passes. The room was large and comfortable. We enjoyed the use of the spa facilities very much. All in all, a very pleasant stay. Thank you.

Pity about the fact that our room was facing a main street and we were woken by roadworks outside at 7am - it would have been nice to have been advised that this was likely to happen or to have been placed in a quieter room. Also the back of the bathroom door was filthy.

Overall the hotel was fantastic, even down to the complimentary bottle of water upon departure. The only small thing was the staff in the hotel bar provided poor service delivering wrong dishes and even simply forgetting to come back with an order which we were then almost charged for. Hotel is beautifully decorated and rooms are above par! Highly recommended

Stayed for one night to see concert. The room was clean and comfortable. the bed was a little hard for my taste, but, slept well. The bathroom was clean with no complaints. The room had air conditioning, but, seemed not to cool real well. Turned to full cold and the room was just comfortable. The breakfast was good with alot of choices. The bar was great with a duo playing tunes after the concert and they were pretty good.

"Clarion Hotel June 2015"
The Clarion had some attributes which were very good, and some which were not so good. It is in a great location in the heart of the city, with good leisure facilities. The standard of food for room service was excellent, however service to the room had a lot to be desired. The standard of food in the restaurant was also good, with service much better in the bar area. Rooms had all of the basics, and were very clean, but be aware if you are staying on the first floor, as you can hear the music from the bar area below at night.
