We've stayed here twice in the last couple of years, as have our friends. The hotel is located just a short walk from m the edge of the Temple Bar area, across the street from Christchurch. Although we love the Temple Bar section of Dublin, when we're done for the day, we like to rest in a quieter area, and... More

Considering the extortionate fee for a twin room for two nights (over 700 euros), it does not live up to expectations. Its clean enough but cheap fixtures and fittings used, the window handle was broken, dirty cups we had used not taken away and cleaned. The highlight had to be the fire alarm going off at 0430am on sunday morning,... More

It took two days before I figured out what a perfect location this hotel is in! Across the street from Christ Church Cathedral, it's an easy 5 minute walk to Temple Bar, Trinity College, Dublin Castle, The Brazen Head and Grafton Street. The room was a nice size with comfortable beds. The bathroom was very large by European standards with... More

First off we were coming back to Dublin on our Europe tour early because we absolutely love Dublin. We were trying to book somewhere on short notice and could not find a good location, in Dublin's center, with good reviews, and at a reasonable rate. But... The GFH came through we booked it for two nights of our seven night... More

Stayed in the apartments provided by the hotel. Great way to see Dublin with a family! The only downside is you don't have the immediate amenities of a hotel, but you are right in the heart of the Old City with Temple Bar right next door and everything else just minutes away! Would definitely stay again when in Dubljn

The best bit is the location, close to Temple Bar and the River, just a 5 minute walk and far enough away to be away from the crowds and noise. Staff friendly, bedroom and bathroom nice. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as a couple of great little cafes a short walk away. Only issue was no air conditioning... More

The room was very clean and maybe a little on the small side but was everything we wanted. There was an iPod dock which was an excellent touch. People may give out about the noise but we were two friends going to enjoy a night out so this was not a problem for us. Very cheap and cheerful and will... More

We stayed in an apartment here and the location is fantastic if you want to party but if you want to sleep then forget about it. The apartments sit at the edge of Temple Bar and the building is very close to others creating an echo chamber. It was so hot and there is no air conditioning so windows have... More

Dear Guest, We deeply regret that we were unable to impress you with our service offerings and amenities and again We are sorry for any noise issues you may have had whilst staying with us. We would love a second chance to host you and give you the service you deserve. Perhaps the Main Hotel would be better for you... More

This little gem is in a perfect location. Right around the corner from the bus stop from the Dublin airport. The front desk staff are all very friendly. You can hear the church bells (and the trash trucks) if your windows are open. The shower had great water pressure. loved having coffee at oscars.

The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in apartment 18 with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The place was comfortable with a nice kitchen. There were no pleasant views from the room but the location was very close to many restaurants and stores on Dame Street, Temple Bar, Trinity College, Guinness Storehouse, etc. There was a bit...
