A Dublin View That Will Still Be Unattractive After Ten Guinesses
You know the scene. You open the door to your brand new hotel room, run over to the window, open the blinds and bam, you are hit with the anti-view. Maybe you are looking down a dirty alley, witnessing a drug deal, staring at an air shaft in the face, or seeing a brick wall. Whatever you are viewing it is not extremely pleasurable. Help out your fellow hotel mavens by uploading your anti-views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number with the not-so-easy-on-the-eyes view.
So, you fly to Dublin and it's dark when you check into your hotel. When you wake up in the morning and look out your window, what do you expect to see? Rolling green hills, sheep meandering about in the light rain, a rainbow here and there ... you know, the stuff on the Lucky Charms box.
But no. None of this. Imagine opening the curtains of your hotel room and finding this view. Makes you wanna drink ten beers, right?
Unfortunately, that may not make it better. This photo comes to us via Flickr user Route79 and it's a view from a guestroom at the Burlington Hotel. This shot was snapped in 2005 and the hotel was very recently renovated, so hopefully something has improved here but probably not. We're willing to bet all our Lucky Charms on this anti-view sticking around since, uh, we don't think the actual building was picked up and moved during the renovation.
So to avoid this kind of tragedy, we suggest you take a tip from Flickr commenter Fritz100 on Dublin hotels: "I would go with a B+B on the outskirts while in Dublin, if it is close enough to the bizness you got to do..."
