Stayed for 3 nights in a lovely apartment right by the hotel. The room was clean and lots of space for the four of us. Great location! Only 2-3 minutes walk to Temble bar area. I would recommend this hotel.

Staying here 8/9 Feb. Room lovely with very comfy bed, spotless, well equipped with kettle etc. Great location. Would definitely stay again. No bar but Oscars next door provides meals and any drinks you might require. Request a quiet room as there is a night club nearby which is noisy.

This is a charming little hotel, with extremely kind and helpful staff. The hotel was scrupulously clean, and the room was delightful, with a safe and a very comfortable bed. Good linen too. Can't think of anything bad to say about this hotel, and for the price was absolutely spot on. A 2 minute walk to temple bar and other... More

Perfect location for temple bar and lots of other parts of Dublin. Breakfast was €10 for continental plus full Irish - excellent value. I would definitely stay here again for work or pleasure. My only criticism... More

Nice hotel close to almost everything, it's easy to get around by foot. On the downside the noice fom the street, not so good beds, Would stay here again. The breakfast not up to standard but as it's optional you can always go somewhere else for that

Booked the apartments, believing them to be ajoined to hotel but we had to book in at 5 Crow Street which was very far away with 2 large suitcases, we were also informed we had to return there in the early morning with the key, absolute joke, the staff clearly did not know the procedure at all.
