Hotel very clean and safely. Located 100 meters from O'Connell Street and 10 minutes walk to Trinity College, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, etc. Near a big Tesco and several small Spar plus various fast food where you spend much less than in pubs and restaurants. Spacious room with double bed and a sofa bed for our daughter. The double bed... More

Great location and close to the sites. The double bed was made up of two single ones that kept separating during the night leaving me with a big gap in the bed. On the first floor and it was noisy at night. There was also a constant buzzing from something outside the window. Bareable with the window shut but way... More

Rooms are small, but cozy and clean. The bathroom floor was really cold. Staff could be more polite and friendly. A good choice for a weekend break. Probably one of the cheapest hotels in this location.

Based on the reviews I booked 4 nights in this hotel last week. Worst hotel experience in years (out of a few hundred). The noise was beyond anything I ever experienced, jaw-dropping. Not just the loud music and shouting from the bar next door, way past midnight. But mostly other guest in this cardboard hotel and the rollercoaster of noise... More

Stayed in July 2013. There is a great bus that takes you from the airport directly to a bus stop outside this hotel for only €6 each! Room was a good size and very clean. Great location near all the main transport links and really good location for sightseeing.

The lobby is very nice. The staff are excellent, friendly, and very helpful. The service in the restaurant/bar is quick and friendly. Our room was not big enough to comfortable accommodate 2 adults and luggage for 3 weeks in Europe, but it was a very nice room.

We always stay at this hotel when we're in Dublin. The location is great and you're close to everything. The staff is helpful and friendly. They also offer gluten free bread for breakfast.
