Must be the noisiest hotel in all Dublin. The party outside goes on all night. First thing in the morning the cleanup starts with the banging and scraping sounds of the beer kegs being changed. Our room looks out on the alley and the building next door, amplifying the sounds. This is not the hotel for rest in order to... More

This post is a little delayed. We stayed here back in June and although the Hotel was extremely central it was a bit steep in prices for the overall decor and extremely slow lift. We ate in the bar which was lovely during the day as it was nice and quiet but at night time I would imagine eating in... More

The room we stayed in was HUGE, seriously you can't get much bigger even in the states for the price we paid. The staff was so sweet and always asking us how we were doing when we would walk by, we even met the owner of the hotel who was a pretty cool guy! The room didn't have AC but... More

Honestly, the location was very loud. Not the place to go for business rest (you could hear people out in the street until 6am or later). I didn't mind because I didn't go to Dublin to catch up on my sleep or to work. What an experience! My friends and I were able to walk to the brewery, Jameson, library,... More

The service was excellent, the staff was friendly and it couldn't be in a better location. Yes, it's noisy in that part of Dublin, and I've brought earplugs whenever I stay in this area. Being so close to everything is worth it.

I find the location of this hotel to be fantastic when staying with my groups. Impossible to get any more central. The bar is lively and fun also and the price of rooms is usually very reasonable and there are good deals at certain times of the year

This is a quite old building, a bit rough around the edges but clean and well looked after. The location is brilliant - if you are looking for downtown, noisy fun that is. The hotel has a very popular bar and just around the corner you will find an infinite number of places which has a mix of locals and... More
