Perfect for what we wanted. The rooms were clean and spacious. We didn't eat here during our stay so couldn't comment on the food. Staff extremely helpful. Brilliant location for exploring the sights of Dublin.

Decent hotel. Spotless clean. Excellent breakfasts and friendly checkin desk staff. Rooms cleaned and refreshed daily. Basic double room a bit cramped for space, though bed itself was large and comfortable.
