This is definitely one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. Smelled like a sewer when you walked in. Room door stuck, bathroom door wouldn't close & bathroom ceiling covered in mould. The carpet in reception was filthy & the room was tiny. Very overpriced for what you get .Bad value &I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

There was a stain on the ceiling & disgusting stain on spare duvet in the wardrobe ( I have attached photos)! When I emptied the sink in the... More

Spent two nights here, 31st Aug to 1st Sept '12. Not the best hotel in the world but not the worst. The room was small but clean with fresh bedding both days on a very comfortable bed. The en suite was adequate and spotless white towels. I booked it through hotels 4 U, who are brilliant and cheaper then the... More

Having read some of the negative comments prior to my stay at the Leeson Hotel I was a bit concerned. However, my fears were unfounded as the place was far better than I expected. The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. The en suite facilities were excellent. Our rooms were cleaned and towels changed everyday. Yes the TV was... More

I recently stayed here for two nights during a weekend get away trip. The location is very good, about 5 mins walk from St Stevens Green which is a lovely park, walking through the park to the other side brings you out at the top of Grafton Street which is the top of the 'commercial' type high street, and then...

We were looking for a budget hotel that was central: this came out very cheap on late bookings.com and we have no regrets. However, there are steps to climb to get into the front door and there are few frills. But the room was clean and surprisingly well insulated from traffic noise ( triple glazed window). I guess you get... More

I booked this Hotel as it was conveniently located for the National Concert Hall however I wouldn't have done so if I had read the negative reports and seen the pictures of dirt/mould before doing booking and I'm glad I didn't. I've stayed in a lot of Hotels and B&Bs and this is nowhere near as bad as what people... More

On arrival the greeting was less than friendly. Parking is in the courtyard behind the hotel, not very easy to find, and you will probably get blocked in. On checking in I was told they could not accept cards as they had a problem, but looking at the sign on the desk, this has been going on for a while.... More
