Default hotel in dublin

Hi, I'm thinking of going to Dublin in April and I'm looking for a decent
hotel. So if anyone has a hotel to recommend I would be grateful. What I'm
looking for is sth with *** stars, not fancy but also not hostel type.
It doesn't have to be in the city centre provided that the public transport
is cheap. :-)

Has one the best breakfasts I have seen in a hotel (and Ive travelled a lot)
but check your rate is for the full breakfast not the continental.

It is 5-10min walk from the edge of the centre of the town.

So have I, including to two other Jurys Inns in Dublin. What made that
one stand out for you? The other Jurys hotels were no different to the
average hot breakfast buffets I've had at various 'average' UK hotels
including Jurys- I wasn't disappointed with them (other than the
organisation at one) but they didn't stand out either. The two best I've
ever had aren't in Europe, so I won't mention them!

Jury's Hotels and Jury's Inns, although owned by the same group, are
different products.

I stayed at the North Star (the one with a train through the
middle) in 2003 - pleasant, good service, marvellous
breakfast. Easy transport to everything.

I stayed at the Regency Airport (same chain) in 2006. Never
again.

I know them both, but never need to stay in Dublin Hotels.

The North Star has a good enough reputation, but it is in a marginal
neighbourhood where one needs to be streetwise.

I cannot see any reason to recommend the Regency other than it has
good parking and is easy of access. Against it one might count the
fact that Runge recommends it.

Oh, OK- I take it the Jury's Hotel is more upmarket then? Might not fit
with the budget of the OP if so. Even the Inns are not cheap, if not
very expensive.

Three things really:
- The very wide choice from the buffet including (for my fish loving
partner) kippers, smoked salmon, prawns.
- The decor - more suited to an East European Opera house, but looking
naturaly in place.
- The very attentive staff, who not only organised the perfectly done eggs
as per partners specific and detailed instructions (which wern't available
from the buffet egg cooker), but also having made a minopr mistake with
something (cant rememebr what) themselves reported it to the maitre de who
came to apologise.


Its not like you to stay on-topic so tell us about your two.

One of my other favorities was the Hilton in Mauritius, with smoked marlin,
and free flowing champagne to add to your orange juice, and of course
sunshine.

Ian Beale's cafe in Walford is famous for it's all day full English breakfasts.

Cathy and Bill raved about it.

Didn't notice that at the time, but then I didn't notice
that in any city I stayed in anywhere in the world (maybe
being 6' and large has some advantages - little do they know
I'd run away at the first sign of aggression:-)

When we arrived the first time, they had overbooked and put
us in a taxi to the "Parliament Hotel" which they also
owned. Not as nice, and not a nice experience. However, our
other two days at the North Star were quite pleasant. Like
many European hotels you had to lug your bags up a flight of
stairs to reception; we found out later that was because the
train ran under it (no noise though).

Just around the corner, heading towards the city, was a
wonderful crowded little bar on the left hand side that we
spent a marvellous evening in, listening to the Irish bands.
We didn't come across anything as good again until three
years later in Doolin.

It is a conglomeration of several old and older buildings -
Fawlty Towers extended. The first room we were offered had
two levels, with a steep half-flight between them designed
for a dwarf. The next two "no smoking" rooms stunk of
cigarettes, the final room was a long, long walk from the
lobby by a devious route, shabby and smelly - but we weren't
going to look at a fifth, so we stayed. I was going to write
a letter to the management - but eventually got sidetracked.

Sounds very nice indeed!

Given how you asked? No.

I was at the Jury's Inn in Birmingham the other day, and I noticed the
rack rate was �180. Ouch- that's very expensive for that kind of hotel.
(I think the organisation I was working for pays them about �70.) The
room was very good though- large with two double beds (for single me)
and an amazing view from the 20th floor over much of the city.
