This hotel is located in a great, central location for exploring the great city of Dublin. It is just off of O'Connell street and while a tourist area for sure, it really is a great base from which to explore any area of the city. The hop-on, hop-off buses start their tours about a 5 minutes walk from the hotel.... More

Temple Bar is around a 20 minute walk from the hotel. The Air-coach goes direct from the airport, and the journey takes around 20 minutes at a cost of 12 euros return ticket.... More

For the price, the location is great and overall we were very pleased. The room was clean and well presented. The only problem we had was the iron didn't work. We went to a birthday celebration but unlike any other hotel they do not make any gesture. Not that this mattered. Over all very pleased. Would recommend and we would... More
