Stayed one night in Dublin, found an unbelievably cheap price for the room - so was wondering what to expect. But it was great; the hotel is at the Stephens Green/town end of Lower Leeson Street - so a 5 minute walk to the centre of town. The building itself is part of a long Georgian terraced block typical of... More

we booked in on the 14th March for one night, on arriving at the hotel the receptionist was very pleasant and gave us our room key. The room we had was up three flights of stairs (didnt see any lift). The room was basic clean and overlooking a very noisy street. That night not only was there cars and people... More

This place is a real find. It is in the heart of Georgian Dublin, stylishly decorated, and comfortable, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. For the price, it is absolutly wonderful. You can't get that good quality for that price anywhere else in Dublin, least of all in one of the most elegant parts of the city, and within ten minutes... More

Couldn't fault anything about this palce - it was cheaper than any other hostel or hotel in the area when I booked. Not noisy at all, polite staff, nicely decorated. Really good location - you can get the airlink bus from the airport or it's only 20 mins walk into the city centre.

So apart from a slightly weird smell in the entrance / corridors, this is a perfect low budget hotel! We stayed for three nights in a 3 bed room and after reading all the reviews was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness (Cleaned every day!), great shower and space! Yes this is no 4 star hotel... but its definitely very good... More

Small old-fashion hotel not far from the center of Dublin. Affordable prices but comfort are minimized. Good for the travellers who are not spending so much time inside and prefer to see the city. Room was clean but the view was on the roof. The room was also dark inside and with a smell of wetness. The other not comforting... More

Leeson Inn has one good thing going for it and that is location. While it sits in a central gentrified area that is where it's charm ends. I can only commend the staff for getting through a day of work in such a miserable excuse for 'Inn' without wanting to throw an adagio for strings and end it all. If... More

I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. Firstly, I have to say the staff were lovely and helpful but the problem is more the hotel itself and the location. If you are going to Dublin for a night out and just want a roof over your head, it would be fine. If you have a big meeting or... More

We stay here for three nights at the start of our trip to Ireland to see Dublin. The hotel as recommended by a friend who had lived in Dublin. The Aircoach from the airport drops you a half block from the hotel. We arrived before check-in, but we were allowed to leave our bags with the receptionist while we walked... More

I booked this accommodation to be close to the Sugar Rooms where I was going to a musical event. Only the day or so before going to I check the reviews here in Trip Advisor....and was appalled by what I read. So here goes.... our top floor room (no302) was clean, tasteful, recently refurbished I assume and I could not... More
