Now a Doubletree Hilton, the 'Old Burlo' hotel is exactly what you want in a business hotel. Close to town and within walking distance of a few pubs and restaurants, the hotel is also walking distance from a beautiful canal. It's attached to a large conference center (I was there for a conference), so there are a lot of business and group travelers staying there. We had a little issue with noise (people in the hallway late), but it was surprisingly quiet given the size. Decent buffet breakfast, too.Recommended for:

We stayed here for two nights on a tour of Ireland. The hotel is on the outskirts of the city, a 15 minute walk to St. Stephens Green. The hotel is modern looking with a nice lobby and great seating area with a coffee bar. However, the hotel is used by many tour operators and conventions and this seating area is generally packed with people so it is difficult to find a chair to sit and enjoy a nice cup of coffee, which was delicious.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel does not have air conditioning and the room windows narrowly open from the top. Our room, 425 , was in a bad location because we had constant noise and humming from units on the roof be,ow us. It sounded like commercial air conditioning but we weren't sure since the rooms had no air conditioning unless you had an executive room. We could also hear a lot of noise in the hallway. Some guests on our tour said their rooms were near the nightclub and they could hear loud music till the wee hours of the morning.
The included breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of hot food as well as cold cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt and a good selection of juices.
If not for the noise issues we easily would have rated this hotel four stars. Guests traveling on their own might get turned off by the constant buzz of activity in the lobby if there are any conferences being held in addition to the tours. Between the conference guests between breaks and people lining up to wait for their tour buses to leave, it was very busy and could be overwhelming.
