An old-school air pervades this rather traditional midpriced hotel, a 5-minute walk from Grafton Street. The Georgian building’s original features have been carefully maintained, from the intricate cornices of 19th-century plasterwork to the marble fireplaces, which warm the lobby on cold days. It can come as a surprise, therefore, to find that the small but decently furnished guest rooms are modern in style (rather bland, even, compared to the grand lobby). Similarly, the bar and restaurant are more cheaply furnished than the lovely building deserves. Guests with mobility problems should ask for a room on a lower floor, as the old building (actually three townhouses merged together) has many staircases. But even with its faults, this is a charming place on a peaceful street, with friendly staff and quiet rooms. Plus, you’re in the very heart of the action here—just a few minutes’ walk to Trinity College in one direction and St. Stephen’s Green in the other.
