Sitting on the space where the Waxworks used to be, this is a very new hotel from the Comfort Inn group. It’s become such a regular hotel for me now that the staff know me and ask when I’ll be back next. Best asset for them is their very friendly staff. Next up are their prices. €79 midweek, €89 later in the week which can go up to €169 on weekends depending on how late you leave it. You get a twin, single or double room for those prices. Prices per room not per person sharing. Brekky not included. Fine for me.
Rooms are brand new, well furnished, air con and broadband in each room. Ethernet cable in the rooms and wireless in reception.
Where they don’t get their 5th star is on the building itself. Built in the boom, corners were cut. So some of the showers leak or the fittings don’t fit that well. It’s the same for their hotel in Smithfield. Still though, a great price and lovely staff.
I’m becoming a big fan of this chain. Had a brilliant stay in one in SF too. Clean, efficient, cheap with internet access. It’s all I ask for in a hotel.
Excuse my ignorance, but which part of Dublin is it in?
And before the waxworks, it was the the Plaza Cinerama, the only Cinerama cinema in Ireland. (Think of cinerama as a poor mans Imax).
Michele, its on Lower Drumcondra Road, Upper Dorset Street, or the top of parnell sq. depending on who you are talking to.
I just want to say, I stayed in the Comfort Inn, Granby Row, when I was up for the Radiohead Concert in June and it was lovely. Really clean, modern and a decent location too. And also cheap, at â‚¬120 for a twin room, which is unusual for a weekend , especially when booked in advance.
I’d definitely stay there again and would recommend it in a heartbeat.
