If you are looking for a relaxing night away do not stay hear. The hotel is in the heart of Temple bar so even with the window closed the music from every direction is extremely loud however if you and your party are going clubbing in Dublin it is in the perfect location. Staff at reception were very nice and... More

Our room was just above a bar where music (live hard rock band) was playing until 1:30 in the morning. And then there was a recorded music and crowds of drunk people shouting until about 2:30 - 3:00. It was absolutely impossible to sleep, the room was not soundproof at all. So - DON'T STAY IN THIS HOTEL unless: -... More

The hotel itself doesn't offer a lot of services. It's a cheap stay especially for that neighborhood. There is no internet in the room or it didn't work, I can't remember because the majority of the time I was out partying. There is a bar/restaurant in the hotel which I didn't really care to try because there was other great... More

Perfectly fine room, clean with comfy beds and all the facilities you need. We used it just as a place to sleep as we had a busy few days. Allowed us to check our bags in securely before checking in which was great. Didn't pay a great deal for the hotel and we all had a good nights sleep and... More

Stayed in this hotel for two for two nights in July, the room itself was fine, basic but clean and comfortable apart from windows & ledges surrounding them which were filthy. Location is perfect but rooms were quite noisy, and difficult to sleep it, some noise was from the street outside & some from hotel itself. Replacing the old dirty... More

Located in Temple Bar, the noisiest but most interesting area of Dublin, the hotel was of excellent standard. Clean rooms of adequate size and very helpful receptionists. Breakfast was good too, and times are flexible!

I was immediately whisked to my room and the check-in formalities were taken care of, very efficiently, in the room service which was good and delivered quickly. The room was large, modern and luxurious. The bathroom was large and of modern design.

Stayed here on Sunday night. €90 euro for twin room. Rooms are very very dated. The carpet is awful, parts of it had been cut apart and slotted back in. There was an unpleasant smell of urine in the bathroom, although it was clean apart from someone else's long brown strand of hair hanging off the hook on the bathroom... More

Stated with my brother here after a concert, thought it would be great due to the central location. Basic clean room but the noise outside throughout the night was awful. We could hear buskers and crowds late into the night. The next morning we were woken by delivery trucks and beer kegs being dragged over the cobbles! Would not return.
