The best location in Dublin. Bar none! Walking distance to all the fun stuff in that Dublin has to offer. Friendly staff. Very clean and stylish furnishings. But, Our room was noisey, cramped, and the A/C had two settings. Off, and Frost.

My husband and i stayed here to celebrate our first anniversary. The communication between the team was brilliant, i had previously emailed the hotel to arrange a bottle of prosecco to be there on our arrival to the room (which it was). The location of the hotel is brilliant with the bus stop right outside from and to the airport.... More

Stayed at this hotel over the bank holiday weekend and had a fantastic time. The hotel is in a great location, very clean and comfy rooms. The staff at reception were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them, they even phoned our taxi for our return to the port. Would definitely recommend this hotel ideal for a...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for five nights in July and for two nights in August. We love the location...three to eight minutes walk to/from: the airport transfer bus dop off, the hop on, hop-off sightseeing bus, Tourist Information Office, Paddywagon Tours Office, Murray's Bar with nightly traditional Irish music and only 15 minutes walk to Temple...

Presently staying at this hotel - the staff here is very rude and doesn't go out of their way to make a guest feel comfortable. We also spoke to the manager about the behaviour of staff ; her response was of no use and our grievance wasn't attended well. We were unlucky enough to get room no 106 which was... More

We stayed at this hotel back in October for 2 nights. It was a great base for our trip, the airport bus stops right outside, and it was located just a minutes walk from multiple bus stops that we used to get to places such as the Guinness Factory and Kilmainham Gaol. We arrived early and the hotel very happily... More

Found this hotel by accident & delighted I did as it's the perfect location for an overnighter in Dublin. Ideal for Croke Park, the luas is only around the corner so perfect for concerts in the O2 & O'Connell Street on the doorstep! The rooms aren't very big but are perfectly appointed. I didn't experience any noise even though I... More

Have stayed at the hotel previously on a number of occasions . The hotel is situated in a great location close to O'Connell ST, and about 10 mins walk from Temple bar. The hotel is very comfortable, and has great beds with very good sleep quality . The staff are always very friendly, and look after their guests very well.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting the city. The hotel has great transport links from Dublin airport with the air coach stopping just round the corner which runs 24hrs. The air link 747 stops just out side the hotel but be carful as this isn't a 24hr service. The hotel was in an ideal location within walking distance of... More
