Merrion Hall Dublin Reviews
I wish they had been finished with the outdoor area Jun 10, 2011
I had actually not looked at where this hotel was situated when I booked it and it was a bit out of the city center of Dublin; to be precise it was 12 euro in a taxi. When I drove into Dublin my GPS had some trouble finding the road and it didn’t get better when it screwed up the numbers as well when I finally found the right street.
After that little hick up I had to admit that from outside the hotel did not look too inviting. The whole front of the hotel was covered in wooden boards due to reconstruction of the front. I found a small door on the side and rang the bell. A beautiful woman in her early twenties open the door and I had a quick flash back to when I entered Hotel #16 in Partizánska in Bratislava, where I thought I almost stepped in to a brothel. The woman turned out to be Hungarian; I was so impolite to ask.
She took me to the far end of the hall where the hotel had its reception. The place was completely different on the inside: it was all keep in Edwardian Boutique style and there were many doors all over the house and the all had glass windows. I passed two dinner rooms on one side and on the other side of the long hall there was huge dining room that was ½ a floor lower than the hall itself.
The reception was small and the girl was in all black I think that it was this fact that reminded me of #16 together with the fact that the girl was very beautiful. She gave me a sheet that I had to fill in and said that I was staying in 116. She followed me up to the room and showed me around the room. At the same time she explained loads of thing of which I remembered nothing beside the fact that she had brown eyes.
The room was on the second floor even though it was room number 116. It was a corner room and as I entered I could see that it was keep in the same style as the rooms downstairs. There was a nice kin-size bed and it was really nice to sleep in as well. Apparently the linen was Irish! There were no minibar in the room but otherwise it was great. There was a nice light in the room form the two windows and there were no neighbours to look in as well.
There were loads of AC plug-ins all over the room and there were two empty wooden closets to place your clothes in. The bathroom was really nice and classic. The towels were really nice and classes better that others I have experienced on my trips. Everything was nice and proper. There was a TV on the room which I never used; next to it there was a set of glasses and a bottle of still water; very neat and nice.
