The hotel is 5 min walk from the city center wich is good. The rooms are very small but cosy. The hotel staff were very helpful and nice. They let us leave our bags at the hotel after the check out so we could enjoy our last day in the city.

I just need a bed for the night and at €52 this was perfect. My single room was in fact a single alright but that didn't bother me. The room was small enough but had everything I needed. Decor was ok. Could have done with a socket beside the bed instead of at the foot though. I was on the... More

Just needed a place to rest my head before my 7:30 flight out of Dublin, and this place was not nearly as bad as people were making it out to be. The guy at the check in table was able to order a cab for me, and even came to my room to remind me about the change in the... More

Travelled to Dublin on 23/10/14 and stayed at the Leeson Inn for three nights. Read really disheartening reviews on here about it so was a bit unsure of what we were going in to. Some people want The Ritz at hostel prices! Basic but we only needed somewhere to get changed and sleep! Hot water, tv etc was fine contrary... More

Budget hotels are just fine, but this place was a fail on almost every level. It has the feel of a low-end hostel, except with hotel prices. We got the room on Hotwire, and given that the advertised rate is over $300 per night, we ignored the poor Trip Advisor rating and went in hopeful. Even at the $120 we... More

I recently stayed for the first time at the Leeson Inn Downtown. My experience was not a good one! Although it is situated in a good location (very central to the nightclubs and St. Stephens Green), the room we stayed in had a shower that did not work - there was absolutely no hot water. We reported this to the... More

I stayed there on a Saturday night. I must say the people working there are absolutely nice and helpful. The room so and so, and not perfectly cleaned... I was on the back side and there is a club which plays loud music until 4 am... additionally my window could not close properly. The guy at the reception came and... More

We were lucky, as the lady on the phone gave us a very cheap deal for a Friday night. The place wasn't as bad as I thought it would be after reading all the reviews here. The girls at reception and in the breakfast area were all very nice, but you could tell no one was really in charge...so when... More

The price was right and the location was excellent so we decided to take a chance - also being seasoned travelers my wife and I have stayed in some pretty dodgy places. Didn't really regret staying there but would seek out other alternatives if we ever are in Dublin again... bring ear plugs!
