This dashing contemporary Dublin hotel on the river side of the International Financial Services Centre was the first in the area to be built specifically for the mature 'city' district and its high standards and central location have proved very popular with leisure guests, as well as business guests and the financial community, especially at weekends.
Bright, airy and spacious, the style is refreshingly clean-lined yet comfortable, with lots of gentle neutrals and a somewhat eastern feel that is emphasised by the food philosophy of the hotel - a waft of lemongrass and ginger in the open plan public areas entices guests through to the Kudos Bar, where Asian wok cooking is served; the smart casual Kudos Restaurant also features world cuisine, but with more European influences.
Uncluttered suites and bedrooms have everything the modern traveller could want, including a high level of security, air conditioning, generous semi-orthopaedic beds and excellent bathrooms with top quality toiletries.
There is a sense of thoughtful planning to every aspect of the hotel, and helpful, well-trained staff show a real desire to ensure the comfort of guests.
