We booked the hotel through Booking.com and got a good deal. The transfer from the airport was so easy, we booked the Hop on Off Dublin bus service in advance, which gave us a weekend pass around Dublin and airport transfer. The airport bus stopped in O'Connell Street bus stop 2, we connected the Hop on Off service which took... More

Booked on line through Alpha rooms, short walk from lots of interesting sites in Dublins fair city, Grafton St. & Temple Bar area to name a few. The hotel itself is what I deem classic decor with lots of wood based features but kept to a high standard. The room was a good size & provided the regular comforts of... More

Great location. Nice clean and quiet rooms. Ideal for overnight business trip. Great value. I would expect hassle free wifi in all hotels these days and on my first stay this was the case. I did not use the dining room in the hotel so cannot comment. Will definately stay there again.

Despite the hotel being in the middle of renovations while we were there, the stay was extremely delightful. The staff is so friendly and helpful, the food is delicious, and the beds are very comfortable. We stayed for 3 days and every morning and evening the manager and desk staff would ask us how our trip was going so far,... More

We only stayed one night, but wish we had stayed longer! Manager Gary went above and beyond his requirements! After a long day of traveling, my husband could not find the parking garage. Gary rode with him to show him where it was. It is hard to find service like that! Danielle at the front desk was very helpful in... More

My husband and I stayed here for four days over the St. Patrick's Day festivities. It is close to everything and yet far enough away that there is little noise or crowds of people hanging around.

The manager, Gary, was very pleasant and helpful, as was his entire staff. The hotel is centrally located, which allowed me to walk everywhere. The breakfast menu had a variety of wonderful choices. I especially liked the smoked salmon and eggs. Quality hotel for a reasonable price.
