Came for a bit of Christmas shopping and to visit the Christmas market. From the minute we arrived the Desk staff were very helpful. When we came back to hotel after our visit to the market. We decided to have a drink in the hotel bar and it is very reasonably priced.
Check in was efficient and we were assigned a room on floor 11 overlooking Robinsons Bar and Fibber Magees. The bedroom was modern with a large bed which was comfortable. The bathroom had a large walk in shower with good water pressure. The noise from the surrounding bars was very loud and we could hear the music in the room until around 2am.
