So So Stay in Cork
Our experience was so, so at this hotel. I'll be as objective as possible. The good: Nicely appointed rooms with very comfortable beds in a very convenient location for a few days exploring Cork. You also have free access to the pool, Sauna and Steam room. Only the pool was open during Covid. The Bad: Communication at the hotel is not good, at all. The reception failed to tell us that if we did not request our rooms to be clean, nothing would be done at all....It wasn't, no clean towels, no room refresher....Nothing! This is understandable during Covid, but least tell us that we need to do something in advance to have our room cleaned. Loud group of 20-50 homeless people camped out side the hotel, across the street each night. They were screaming and yelling until 3 am both nights. Luckily we had earplugs. Not the hotel's fault, but consider this if you are planning to book the hotel. Breakfast is not included, and was not very good. My eggs were bland and overall its was edible, but I would have had breakfast elsewhere if the hotel was close to any open restaurants less than 10 minutes walk for breakfast. This is probably my first negative review on a hotel ever. I have travelled extensively throughout the world and stayed in many hotels, including hotels in Killarney and Dingle on this trip. Its understandable that some of the issue can be related to Covid, but clearly not all.

We had a very nice stay overall but we got no notification about having to book the pool or gym before arrival and they were full when we got here, we specifically picked this hotel for these amenities. Our room was a double and single bed instead of two double as selected when booking. Great hotel otherwise and great location.

Breakfast Vouchers Mix Up
The hotel was great. My friend bought breakfast vouchers on Saturday evening. When we went for our breakfast the following day there was a lot of confusion. She does not remember been given any vouchers and the receptionist refused to check the computer to confirm that we had paid for them. It was a very embarrassing situation that did not need to happen.

Good City Center Hotel.
Enjoyable stay. Room was very comfortable and bed was nice. Check in was efficient and courteous. Breakfast was good. Only issue is €12 for overnight parking in a very strange carpark with only one exit/entrance !
