    Good: quiet, overall a comfortable room. Location not quite as good as we'd hoped.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel common areas and rooms are attractively modern in appearance and very well maintained. The staff is very pleasant, customer oriented and the food was excellent. It’s location is within convenient walking distance of many attractions but the immediate environment is quiet and serene. By the same token, the off-site parking is a bit of a hassle. Overall, though, an excellent property reasonably priced

    Fantastic hotel in a great central location. The Alex is one of those hotels that punches above its weight. Between the quality of the room, the comfortable bed, the service - it's basically a 5 star hotel. I've stayed at the Alex now a number of times and will continue to every time I visit Dublin.

    This hotel is in a great location, quiet but easy walking to museums, shopping, parks. The hotel is modern and immaculate. The Ginger Man pub is right next door, and it is one of the best in Dublin.

    Loved It!

    The Alex has welcoming staff and is very clean, gorgeously styled and beautifully decorated. We loved the comfort and coziness of our room. In room coffee and tea were welcome as was the small mini-fridge. Great location 10 min walk from Grafton/Suffolk Sts. Will stay again!
