1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms could really use some love. The mattress was quite uncomfortable and the pillows(2) were terrible. The room was not cleaned to a high standard, and the mould on the bathroom tiles hinted that they hadn't been in a long time. The single pane (cracked) window made for a very noisy room. All this I could get over, as... More

90euro was too much to pay for one night in this dreary hotel/guesthouse. No breakfast included. There is no lift so you have to climb a steep stairs perhaps up 4 floors to get to your room. The stairwell and the rooms are dark looking and colourless. My room was very small and got stuffy and hot which woke me... More

Room was cramped and really shabby, carpet was a trip hazard . The only positive thing I can say is the location is good ! Don't stay here unless you have no choice 😖 sadly everything about this 'hotel' was negative. Window was dangerous and would not shut properly. Make do rug covered a huge stain on the well worn...

The hotel is nicely situated at walkable distance from Stephen's Green Park (so about 15 minutes walk from the Leffey, 20 from Temple Bar. The room was a good size and so was the bathroom. I thought the beds were comfortable. The street is very noisy so get some ear plugs! There was not enough towels for the both of... More

The Inn was good for what we needed, great location (except for the nightclub next door) tip ask for a room at the back of the hotel. The staff do not speak much English at all and you will not find an ironing board or the usual shampoos, soaps etc so make sure you take your own! If you are... More

The rooms are a bit dated but the staff are pleasant and extremely helpful. Some of the rooms have single galzed windows. It is on a great location and is ideal for someone who needs a bed for the night.

They could spruce it up a little. The lobby looks tired. It's a little stuffy but I wouldn't dare open the ancient window. The hallway is dark and there is no lift as they say here. The bed is a bit sagging too. A wee bit. I should have sprung for an extra star.

Room was so so small as was the bathroom. There was a smell of drains in the room all the time. The lady on reception was so unhelpful in terms of helping with directions and taxis to the airport. It was cheap for Dublin but would stay somewhere else next time

We spent 4 nights here, selected after reading other trip advisor reviews, room was very tight but acceptable. Location was great, just a short walk to various tourist attractions/museums. Main issue was noise, there are several nightclubs nearby and come closing time everybody seemed to need to shout their goodbye's to their friends and of course the friends had to... More

What you see is what you get, the bathroom reno was only half complete in our room and needed more work. And with heavy rain it smelt like a dead rat in the wall the first day. Other than that the staff were friendly and the room a good size. Conveniently located and really, it was cheap so you can't... More
