Great appartment in the centre of Dublin

Posted Sep 6, 2009 on Hotels
Great appartment with service from the hotel. 15 minutes walk from the centre of Dublin. Only when you have your car with you, you have to park it into a parking 15 minutes walk away. The parking costs about 35 euro a day.

Nice hotel to stay

The Hotel is located within walking distance to the city centre and shopping/eating area. Bus 16A stops near the Hotel from Dublin Airport (2.4 Euro one way). The kitchen is very handy. We really enjoyed the stay and would go back if we visit Dublin next time.

There are much better options

Posted Apr 9, 2009
This apartment managed by the hotel was far away from the hotel itself. It required multiple access codes to enter the complex which was a hassle. The heater was not functioning. The hotel staff came over and was able to get one of the heaters to work, but just shrugged and said the other one was just broken. Definitely not impressed.

Not as far as it sounds

I was a little nervous about the distance to the city center, but the apartments were very close. A nice man from the hotel showed us to our apartment and made sure we got settled. It was very nice, clean and quiet.

Not a safe hotel

Posted Dec 1, 2008 on Hotels
When I stayed with 4 other guests in the apartments at SHaw court there were many issues. The house keepers walked right in without a knock, and hung a telephone on the wall. They came in while we were out for the day and they did not lock the doors with laptops and passports in the room. the management did not take care of this issue and told me that the help has all access to the room if the do not disturb sign is on the door. I thought that this was ridiculous. Also, the cab drivers never heard of this place, therefore was an extremly expensive cab ride. You must check into the hawthorne hotel which is a 8 minute walk from the shaw court apts. The phone lines do not work so if youneed something changed you must walk 8 minutes to the Hawthorne hotel.

Perfect for a relaxing stay

We found the apartments perfect for our week long stay in Dublin. They people at Harcourt were very friendly, and the girls looking after the rooms fantastic. The location is brilliant, both for local amenities (lovely pub, and shops nearby) as well as a quick canter into town. The apartment itself was very comfortable, and well supplied within the kitchen and bathroom.

Very impressed

Posted Jun 23, 2008
we went to dublin and had 3 nights here. the appartments are about a 10 minute walk from the centre (15 to the temple bar area). The appartment complex is fantastic. its new, well maintained and because you have to check in at the main hotel, the receptionist got a porter to walk us to the appartment complex as we didnt know where it was. i would highly recommend it

Not great

Posted Aug 23, 2007
It wasn't what we expected. You have to check in at a hotel that manages it 4 or 5 blocks away and then trek over to the apartment. Not great on a rainy Dublin day.

Wouldn't stay there again

Posted Aug 16, 2007
We spent 4 nights at the Shaw Serviced Suites. We arrived at the Harcourt Hotel and checked in. Then, without explanation, the desk person called a porter of sorts to see us to our suite (which we assumed was adjacent). After a five-block hike through heavy traffic (with luggage and kids in tow, mind you) we arrived. Our soul-less, spartan suite was on the main floor right beside the main entrance to the building. Extremely noisy. There was a security code to get into the complex gate, another to get out, a third to get into the building proper and a then a code for the security system inside the suite itself. I felt like Maxwell Smart in "Get Smart" with doors closing behind me every few seconds. The suite was reasonably clean (dust under the furniture, cigarette burn on the futon, but the bathroom was cleaned daily) but not family friendly. The only bedroom had a commercial-weight door that closed automatically. So did the living area/adjacent kitchen. My husband and I slept in the living area on a very hard futon. Ouch. The hot water only worked if you remembered to turn on the heater quite a while before a shower. The heater was noisy whether it was on or off. We requested a wake-up call the morning we had to catch a plane. It was 30 minutes late - resulting in a mad scramble for the airport.
