We stayed at both apartment for a family of 4 and also on our last week in Dublin, we stayed at the hotel. For the apartment, the new wing is nicer, new and clean. No stairs to climb, just from door to door. At the old wing, the room is alright but too many stairs to the lift and with... More

Beautiful large room with a great shower. Bed was comfortable with a big TV, good wifi and location is brilliant just outside Temple Bar. Staff were friendly and helpful. Managed to get a very good deal as we booked on the day as we otherwise wouldn't have stayed if we had paid full price.

Very noisy: The room I had basically had the elevator shaft running through it. Every squeak, groan and rattle was clearly heard throughout the night. I was also overcharged for breakfast. I pre-booked on Booking.com and paid for 2 breakfast , and upon checking out they insisted I pay again!

We stayed here because our usual hotel was sold out, and it was OK. Value for money was good, room was very generously sized for Dublin and comfortable. The main reasons for a so-so review were the breakfast, location and service. This is in Temple Bar but on the far edge near Christ Church Cathedral. This makes for a long... More

Staff very friendly, location is good: handy for the main tourist area without being too noisy. On the down side some of the furniture is a bit on the tired side and there are no safes in the room. The breakfast was fine but nothing to write home about

We had a great stay here, we had one of the twin rooms in the hotel, and while this hotel is quite small and the bar was closed up ( the reception staff can still serve you drinks from it, or open it up if you like) .It was very central and very reasonable price wise, what makes the hotel... More

We loved the location as it was perfect to just step out onto the Temple bar, in the heart of Dublin, within easy walking distance of the shops, sights, restaurants and the night club. We also liked having the triple room with its daily treats of biscuits, wine,free water, snacks etc However the most amazed we were with the staff,... More

I stayed here recently and booked it last minute. The price was very reasonable so I wasn't sure what to expect quality wise. I was pleasantly surprised, nice room with nice decor in a slightly quieter area of Temple bar. My room was at the front of the hotel but I had no problem with the noise. Quite warm in... More
