This hotel is near the beating heart of Dublin, near the cultural, food, drink and gay venues, and it's a great base for walking to other spots from/ I could easily have walked to any of the theatrees with great plays on, and there was an astounding choice of places to feed myself. The hotel itself, has at least six... More

Hotel is in an amazing location, right in the centre of Dublin, walking distance to everything you need; Temple Bar at your doorstep. The receptionist was not a happy woman, but she got the job done, no friendly banter or even a smile; the receptionist at check out was slightly better. We booked on very short notice so were in...

Review of the Hotel only not restaurant or bar Stayed for one night in July 2015. Hotel room is generally dated and mattress in particular was tired and springy. However the room was clean and of a decent standard Staff generally pleasant but check-in was not particularly efficient

It's hard to let me down totally, I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Dublin but this place succeeded. The noise from the street is constant it never ends, the ear plugs provided will do nothing, and I was hammered when I got back in the room... God help a sober person. At 100e`s a night and more this... More

The room itself wasn't so bad, but the noise made by drunks in the street was indecent. The women at the reception, "Teresa" in particular ( the blonde ), were rude... they never hail people. The bar service was too much expensive.

Firstly, dont stay here if you are looking for tranquility! In fact don't stay anywhere near here if you don't want noise. However, for great value, great staff, great location and a true taste of Dublin this place is brilliant! Myself, a girlfriend, my son and his partner spent two great nights in Dublin and we were not disappointed. The... More

We asked for a twin room, but the 2 beds had been made up as a double. The staff on reception were very friendly & helpful in helping us find the restaurant we wanted to visit for dinner, but were unsure about the details for the walking tour that was included in the cost of the room.

We went for a 5 day trip to Dublin, and took a chanse on this hotel. The room was clean, staff was friendly, and the service good. My wife has long hair and need some pressure in the shower. This is usually a problem when we are staying in hotels, but not here. Plenty of water pressure. If I should... More

Hard to find entrance - it's not on Dame St. Rooms tiny. Bathroom very old & windows filthy dirty. The only thing going for it is the central location but this also means very noisy at night. Beds basic but ok. Like many Irish places the shower requires you to climb into the bath - a great safety problem
