We stayed at this hotel/resident as it came recommended to us by a colleague. I will preface my review by saying that it is a large residence with several units and perhaps they are not all created equal. However the unit that we stayed in left a lot to be desired. It was dated, the walls were dirty, the beds... More

Stayed here for a few nights getting into Dublin and could have done better. The place is worn, beds are like sheets of paper and services are minimal. The place is dated, maybe we just got a bad room, but i would definitely not look to stay here again, even as a large group. The cost seemed a little high... More

Great location, walking distance to everything . Apartment clean with very helpful staff. Parking on site which was great. We would definitely stay here again, it was a great start to our European Holiday.

We stayed at the Ivy Apartments for four nights and thought they were fantastic. The staff were incredibly helpful and the location is ideal. The hot water doesn't quite cut it by itself but the booster switch does the job! We wouldn't hesitate in returning there again.

The apartment we had (no 43) was spacious, clean and the kitchen was well equipped (salt, peper, coffee, tea, dish washer including tablets and enough pans to cook a meal). The location is also good, multiple supermarkets just next door and just around the corner from O'Conells street. The only huge drawback is the boiler, we have not had warm... More

When booking a last minute business trip I just assumed that there would be some hotel accommodation available in Dublin, but ‘no’, all the usual places I would have stayed reported that they were fully booked (it turns out that Roger Waters was playing at the Aviva Stadium). Stretching the search further I came across the Ivy Exchange Apartments (I... More

Coming from a fast paced week in London, to a short two day stopover, my friends and I arrived in Dublin exhausted and in need of a good bed, relaxation and a nice break before returning home to the states. We got out of the taxi with all of our suitcases and had some trouble finding the offices, but we... More

One of these Ivy Exchange apartments was advertised on airbnb by Anastasia Doran and the accommodations were appalling. Like any apartment I suppose it comes down to how many people are crammed into it and this place was packed ie. 2 rooms housing 4, me in the shoe box and Ana and her bo in the lounge room/kitchen/bedroom. The room... More

The main difficulty on arrival is finding a parking space to unload outside the apartments. We'd already reserved a space in the underground car park at 10 euros a day which was right under the apartments and accessed with the apartment keys. The apartment itself was very spacious and light with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In our opinion, it... More

we booked two nights in Ivy apartments for Two mums and two teenagers looking for a shopping break. Just the day before going to Dublin I decided to look up tripaadvisor to see what others had to say. I was horrified to read that others had terrible experience and even thought of cancelling the trip! We decided to go ahead... More
