The location of this hotel is perfect, just off O'Connell Street. The hotel is modern and very clean. Loved the security features within the hotel. After requesting a room with a front of hotel view we were upgraded (free of charge) after mentioning this was a special birthday. This was to be the start of an excellent stay. Our room... More

We stayed here for a rugby weekend. It is centrally located just off O'Connell Street. It is ideally situated for the shopping areas and 15 minutes from Temple Bar if you want the tourist drinking holes. There are taxis and public transport spots close by. The staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Check in and check... More

Just arrived back home after a weekend away in Dublin with my girlfriend. The hotel didn't disappoint, the hotel in general is very clean and modern. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any queries. It is also in a good location just off O'Connell street and a ten minute walk from Temple Bar area. We recommend this hotel!!

Stayed in this hotel for four days over Christmas 2014. Excellent location for arrival from Dublin Airport and being just off the North end of O'Connell Street, it was a pleasant walk to areas like Temple Bar and Grafton Street. The staff were very welcoming and the rooms were comfortable. We dined in the restaurant twice for main meals and... More

The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed including tea & coffee facilities, iron & ironing board,hairdryer, complimentary toiletries and a free safe. The breakfast when booked in advance is € 9.90 but € 12.50 if you don't book.... More

Had a great stay for 2 nights at this hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff on reception, after a problem with the room, they sorted it immediately and apologised. Excellent customer service, especially from Seamus and Lisa. Rooms clean and suitable. Excellent location, O'Connell Street just a few seconds away, 10 mins walk to Temple Bar. Will stay here again.
