The room was so tiny, just about fitted a double bed in the room, no chance of walking past the bed to open the really tiny window. There was not enough room to have your suitcase open and walk into the room! However, the room & bathroom were very clean. This is a great location and the 40% discount for... More

I regularly go to Dublin for 2-3 days on work related trips and for a few days off. This hotel is great value for money. It's in a very convenient location, close to private car parking, Dublin bus stops, airport shuttles, and Dublin hop on/off green bus stop. Breakfast is always good. Rooms clean, tidy and well sized. Wifi throughout... More

We couldn't have asked for a better hotel to stay in for our 2 night stay. We had a family room which consisted of two single beds,a double pull out sofa and another single guest bed. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Check out was 12.00pm which was great. The location of this... More

On a little side street only 30 seconds away from O'Connell Street. This means you have access to all sorts of restaurants, pubs and shops. An 8 minute walk to bridge leading to Temple Area, Trinity College, etc. Airport shuttle stops right in front of hotel. In less than 3 minutes you access the hop and off bus as well... More

The hotel is very well located: main tourist attractions are within walking distance, and the airport bus (Airlink 747) stops in front of the hotel. Unfortunately this was the only positive thing that I could find about the hotel. The hotel is very busy and crowded, so our room wasn't ready at check in time. When it comes to the... More

We stayed in Dublin for 3 days and couldn't have chosen a better hotel! The staff and management couldn't do enough for us and were always ready and available. The location is brilliant and the comfort of the rooms outstanding! Highly recommend you stay here next time you visit Dublin!
