A pleasant stay a pity about the service
Overall the Alex was really good. The hotel decor and room were beautiful. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed comfy. The gym at the Mont was amazing, the best hotel gym I’ve ever been in. What let’s hotel down is the reception staff. There was a long wait at reception with only 1 person on the front desk who was quite abrupt and rude and didn’t give us the warm welcome we expect in Dublin. when we did get our room after 4 pm check in and come back downstairs 10 mins later and ask for an umbrella the receptionist asked if we were residents. When we rang down at night for green tea bags we were told that we had to come downstairs for them - not the room service that I expected and so went without tea as I was ready for bed, overall there just seemed to be a level of incompetency with the reception staff. The location of the hotel is brilliant and we had a pleasant stay but I feel we could have had a warmer welcome which is the first impression of any establishment.
