LovinDublin is an excellent website to peruse if you're planning to visit any of Dublin's pubs or restaurants. It is chock full of handy advice and lists the Morgan as one of the city's best places to grab a mojito
Here the Guardian reports that Ian Belcher recommended the Morgan
as an option for a one-night stand or a dirty weekend. You have my admiration if you follow his advice.
Andrea Valentino, a writer on the Telegraph Travel website
, recommends that travelers to Dublin should stay at The Clarence, The Hampton or The Morgan. Booking.com
has generally favorable reviews, along with a few negative ones. Most users are in agreement over the convenience afforded by the hotel's location, particularly for those who need to be close to tourist spots and who want to explore Dublin. The hotel's chic, funky style is quite popular among guests. Its lively cocktail bar offers a good break from the other pubs that focus on Guinness beers. The latter are common across Dublin. Some suites offer a private balcony that is typically appreciated. Guests often said they liked their comfortable rooms, but some pointed out that the furniture and facilities seemed to be outdated. This is a matter of perspective though. The customer service experience at the reception desk seems to vary across guests, where some found the staff to be indifferent to their needs if not outright rude. Some guests complained that their rooms did not include the advertised bathrobes or slippers, but this was easily fixed by the hospitality staff or the reception desk. As with anything, each person's experience varies according to their perspective, and for the most part, the hotel has received good reviews.
On this website, we also consider reviews listed on Yelp
because they tend to offer a somewhat different point of view compared with reviews left on traditional hotel booking sites or other travel web-sites. For instance, Liat F. recalls enjoying a few expensive glasses of wine, some Jaeger shots, a round or two of Guinness, and some dancing to the tunes played by a cool DJ. Ian P., on the other hand, helpfully provides definitions of the word "swish" from the Oxford English Dictionary. These kinds of personal, quirky reviews are unlikely to show up on a site like booking.com. Taking a more practical view of the hotel and its surroundings, some reviewers have mentioned the noise coming from the many bars in the area and the street. The noise can extend to the wee hours of the morning since this is a central location for the city's nightlife.
