Paid 170e for one night and it was awful. The place is in need of a severe makeover..ripped carpets, paint smudges to cover up marks instead of painting the entire room. The WIFI didnt work, and it was really noisy so i couldnt sleep. You can hear the nightlife easily and can also hear the people above and beside you.... More

Not as bad as some of the reviews say. Cons: Room very small, no lift so 6 flights of stairs to get to third floor. Shower small and temperature controls wrong way around. Pros: Quiet, comfy bed, friendly staff and very central. Overall not too bad for the price

Very helpful staff, rooms were very clean. Walking distance to everything, we took the park as a cut through during the day, it was very scenic. We were allowed to order food into the hotel. Open all hours with someone at reception. Highly recommended for couples and groups.

Dublin is pricey to stay in so we were pleased to find the Leeson Inn Downtown. Really central location at a much cheaper price than other city centre hotels. Comfortable, clean rooms. Bed very comfortable. Room was warm but we just slept with the window open and the street wasn't noisy. We got a free breakfast as the room rate... More

Recently stayed here overnight as we were attending a gig. We essentially needed somewhere to get changed and lay our heads down. At €70 for the night (not including breakfast), I thought that it was a good price for a half decent B&B. Well, wasn't I wrong. Firstly, the room was tiny. Thankfully myself and my partner did not have... More

Great location very close to St. Stephen's Green and Trinity College, and a very helpful staff. The room was spartan and somewhat crowded. The continental breakfast was overpriced, but they recommended alternatives nearby.

Looking for a cheap place to stay we happened upon the Leeson Inn. I was very disappointed with the experience-tiny,grubby room. Uncomfortable bed,mould in shower tray,watered down soap etc. we were... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night and it was very convient with its location only minutes from St Stephens green and only a 5-7 min walk into dublin centre. The accommodation served it's purpose for a quick stay it was a little dated and patched up here and there and no hot breakfast choice but the staff were... More
