I friend and I booked to stay here for a Saturday night out in Dublin. First impressions from outside we were a little worried. Lobby area and hallways in need of refurbishment but had a lovely surprise when we got to our room. Spacious clean room and nice bathroom. Perfect for a couple of nights away. Amazing value for money... More

The hotel is inexpensive and just a short walk to the city center which is why we chose to stay here. The rooms themselves are large and clean but very basic and there is no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby. There were three of us in one room and it was comfortable but again nothing fancy.

Stayed on a saturday night in a room on the front. didn't hear any club noise. really only needed a bed to sleep in after a busy day. It was a comfortable enough. Not particularly fancy, possibly in need of some more thorough maintenance and a little less cost-cutting- only had watered down handsoap in the bathroom, which was kinda... More

The sweet little Leeson Inn, the largest budget room I had during my European excursion. I had emailed the staff that I would be arriving early in the day and asked about storing bags etc. When I arrived at 11 AM they had my room ready! SO nice as this was the beginning of my trip and I was very... More

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
