Basics such as comfort and cleanliness were good but other facilities were poor such as no on site parking,bar and restaurant,Air conditioning, Road works outside the Hotel. I expected a lot more for the price I paid. I would not use again

About
Description
The Alex is Dublin's newest and most stylish hotel boasting both beautiful design and an incontestably perfect location at the heart of the city centre. Boasting 103 bedrooms - all with super king size, ...More extra comfortable beds, versatile event space for up to 400 people and a sophisticated bar and restaurant area which is both comfortable and stylish. Try out some of the best coffee on offer in Dublin in our very own Steam Café which serves delicious barista coffee throughout the day and which has direct access from the hotel itself. Located on the corner of Merrion Square where locals, business people and tourists alike meet and mingle. This corner of Dublin is full of surprises and offers a range of top attractions as well as much sought-after peace and quiet in such a bustling city. Getting to The Alex is really easy and once you arrive, it's the perfect hub for exploring Dublin. Less

Hello. I don’t remember it being noisy. It seemed to be in a quiet area :-) I wouldn’t recommend the Dean if your a light sleeper x

If you have the Alex on your left you will have to drive for ~350 Mt more. Parking will be on your right marked Alexander Court... You will have to ask The Alex the first code...
