I had a very nice and pleasant stay at this hotel. It was very reasonably priced and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were immaculate as well as the linens. The staff is very nice and helpful.

This hotel is in a great location only a short walk away from Temple bar and surrounding shops. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We were greeted by an extremely friendly receptionist and given information on all the local attractions to take up our time during our stay. Will definitely be back again on next visit to... More

My experience here was literally half and half both good and bad. The staff were brilliant, food and pub part great, bathroom spotless but the bed just put me right off. We booked a twin room and the single bed I had to sleep in literally had such a massive dip in the middle that I woke up with a... More

The base of the bed was broken in several places so the mattress was all over the place. No quilts, musty blankets. Breakfast was ok, Great place for a drink and some music, but wouldn't... More

I only stayed here for a night, so it was okay for just crashing. The noise from the pub below does seem to vibrate through the walls and floors, but it was somewhat comforting to hear the sounds of Irish music. The blankets did have a musty smell and the pillows were a little too soft and flat for my... More
