Didn't have a great experience here. Rooms were tidy and all seemed ok on the outside. However the beds sank badly, the breakfast croissants were gone off. We did only pay about 30 euros each for the night and location was great, but don't expect to have a nights sleep!

Location - perfect location if you want to be close to Temple Bar. 747 bus from the airport stops less than 5 minute walk away. Nice view of the river from our room. Noisy - we were on the river side so I imagine it wasn't as bad as the other side but we could still hear music from the... More

We recently stayed at this hotel - great location- you are in the heart of Temple bar with everything in walking distance! Hotel has a great pub with friendly staff and entertainment every night of the week. Wifi signal is very poor but other than that we would recommend it to all - to be sure, to be sure ;)

I loved the location of the Fitzsimons. We were able to walk all around Dublin and get a good feel for the city. We also had a beautiful view of the River Liffey from our room. I thought the staff was very helpful. My luggage was delayed and they helped me call into the airline and always followed up with... More

If you're looking for comfort and peaceful. Not here. If you're looking to be on the main drag and go to bed at 4am like the rest of the people, this is for you. Not much of a breakfast especially if you're hungry and hungover. Coffee was good. Beds sucked.

Don't expect luxury. Place is pretty clean. Some staff friend while others could care less. Water pressure in bath is very low and hot water is hard to come by. Wifi is pretty much a joke unless you are on the ground floor. We will survive our stay here, but I would NEVER stay again. Do not recommend.

We didn't stay here but were advised to go there for dinner - i am so glad that we did as it was brilliant value for money and a huge portion - yummy! Must do visit if you've time for a nice non-pub grub dinner!

Good basic hotel, room was clean and bright, there was noise from the Main Street but this is to be expected as we were in the Temple Barr area, and it's very lively, excellent for main attractions all well within walking distance The Irish breakfast was really good, free wifi wasn't so good tho!! Overall I would stay again I... More

Arrived very late and check in was easy.. Great location... Only staying the one night on our way through Dublin. Very basic. However had everything we needed.. I wouldn't book if you were a light sleeper as the noise from the street and club downstairs comes straight into the bedroom. Didn't sleep until the party people below had left (about... More

Stayed here last week in the top room with loads of space ( paid extra) very good location in temple bar but very noisy, even in the morning when the street cleaners are rattling bottles and cans. The area and bar are very expensive for what it is ( standards ) eg €70 for four jagerbombs.......... If I went back... More
