There was a small bar of soap at the WHB and some shower gel at the shower. No shaving foam - but thats hardly a revelation. Oh yes, and a shower cap! Best of luck

What's the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? Is it by bus or by taxi? Also, how much does it cost?
We got the bus - the 747 - from outside the terminal. I can't remember the price but it wasn't expensive. We bought a return. You buy the tickets from the travel information desk in Arrivals. You can also buy online in advance. A tip - if you plan to use the hop on and off sightseeing bus you can get this on the same ticket and save a bit. The bus drops you on O'Connell street not far from the hotel and to return to the airport you cross the street and walk a few yards left. Theres also a 757 bus with a slightly different route but you could get that if it's at the stop, and get off by the river and walk about 100 yards to the hotel
