“Just off the busy city centre, but still well-placed, this chic hotel has a youthful relaxed feel and low-key designer touches. Rooms are generous with super-comfortable beds, plenty of smart technology and swish bathrooms. A quieter city retreat.”

Hotel Review

The floor-to-ceiling windows, relaxed jazzy music and big open-plan reception-lounge-workspace sets the tone for this modern hotel: chilled, youthful, smart but unpretentious. There are sweeping wooden floors, colourful rugs, boxy sofas, abstract art prints and a hint of art deco in brass-coloured light fittings and mirrored pillars. Bedrooms are smooth in shades of grey, charcoal and blush-pink with blanket throws adding softness and retro-style radios adding fun. Even standard rooms are ridiculously large and all have heavenly thick mattresses and slick, grey and green bathrooms with Paul Costelloe accessories. There's a coffee-bar, 'Steam', and a restaurant, 'Carriage' - a bit of a train theme going on - the latter with an all-day pub classics menu. Upgrade to an Executive room for fancy extras and a private lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks.

The Alex Dublin, Ireland

After a total renovation, The Alex sports an altogether refreshed look, with sleek furnishings, prompt and friendly services and a wonderfully central location in the heart of the Irish capital. Think natural light, gleaming light fittings, plush green sofas and a scattering of books and Anglepoise lamps.
