We stayed here for one night and it was terrible! The room was on the 3rd floor 304, it was so small we couldn't open the toilet for properly. It was very tired and in need of decorating, the radiator in the toilet was rusted and peeling from what I presume was splashed urine. It was so hot in there... More

Stayed for one night . Room was on the upper floor. The room was clean but extremely hot and the sash window only opened a short bit so difficult to sleep as it was a hot evening. Found the staff very abrupt and unfriendly on arrival and not much better on departure. The hotel is quite close to the centre.... More

Booked in to this charming hotel for a surprise trip for my girlfriend. Very reasonable cost and on arrival room was ideal. Very clean and well furnished. Ideal location, as a 2 minute walk from the airport shuttle bus drop off. Would visit here again.

My expectations were low for a hotel that only charges €54 per night. However, even a budget hotel should have certain minimum standards. I found: uncomfortable mattress; extremely hot room with heating turned off; broken window; paint peeling and rust on radiator; threadbare towel; no floor mat in bathroom; no WiFi signal on top floor. Will not use again. Pictures... More

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
