The only good thing about this place was the bed very comfortable. The rest of the place needs refurbishment it's very dated and not much works anymore and the mildew in the bathroom was not a nice feature

This hotel has been roasted way too much. We did the expectations management by reading all outraged one star reviews before arriving at the hotel. It paid off: of course there's some mold, dirt and extremely loud music present in the room, but otherwise everything was almost ok. The shower was designed for midgets. There was a nice shortcut from... More

Im not a very fussy person, nor am I a clean freak, but this place is the worst place I have ever stayed. We were staying here for a night out with friends so we were not looking for anything spectacular, just somewhere to throw the bags, shower and get ready. We stayed in an Annex which was 3 rooms...

Perfect location in the middle of all fun! Bring your earplugs if you go to bed before the bars close! Spacious well-equipped rooms, really friendly staff, breakfast cooked to you order. The hotel is a bit worn, but very price worthy! There is a bar with live music in the hotel, we were not disturbed by that, but we were... More

Stay here if you are looking for somewhere cheap in the Temple bar area. The bar attached is ok and it stays open late. I think the last drinks we got were at half 2. When we came into the hotel during the day the food did smell pretty good.

I didn't read any reviews of this hotel before my stay, and to be honest I'm glad I didn't as I probably wouldn't have stayed here. After staying for one night, I don't have (too many) complaints. First off - the location is superb. Smack bang in the heart of Temple Bar, everything you need is within walking distance of... More

Five of us stayed in the annexe of this hotel last night and thank goodness it was for one night! It needs a total makeover. Grubby, tired and smelly. We battled to turn the key in the door to get in after walking up four flights of stairs! maybe the hotel itself is good enough but the annexe is really... More

We thought we were getting a hotel right in the centre of things. Unfortunately, it was 'too' central! The Band was playing right below our room until 3 am every morning. Very noisy. The only positive thing I can say is that the staff were nice, and honest about the noise (reception warned us upon arrival) and offered us free... More

Grubby, smelly, too hot, not as described, definitely not modern rooms, asked for reduction as so terrible but no joy. Wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. Everything about it is awful. Sheets not changed, Bath so shallow you cannot cover your body lying down. Pictures on rooms do not show the state they are in.
