There was 8 of us so we booked 2 2 bedroom apartments. These were located round the corner from the hotel entrance but you have to check in at the hotel. It was a shame our apartments weren't together, they were in separate buildings, but we didn't know how many apartments the hotel owns so that could be the reason... More

This hotel was very clean. Front lobby under renovation. Not a problem! Will have to return to see updates. Room tiny, but sufficient. Attached bar and restaurant was beautiful! Very uniquely decorated. Best breakfast of our trip. The location was near Dublin castle and plenty of bus stops. Wished we were closer to the temple bar area itself. Very quiet... More

Lovely hotel in the Temple Bar area of Dublin. We stayed in a family apartment. The apartment was clean and modern. There was a fully equipped kitchen, along with a washer/dryer for our use. We felt very much at home here. The only downfall to our stay was the bathroom, I feel like it needed a bit of updating, it... More

We stayed in apartment 49 which was absolutely perfect for our needs. The apartment was fabulously located central to everything and was well equipped and perfect for our needs. The hotel staff were absolutely delightful, really friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would highly recommend this hotel / apartments.

We stayed here for 1 night, and we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, and the hotel is in a location that is very convenient, located right near many pubs and restaurants. I think the area may get a bit noisy at times, but as we had dinner at the bar downstairs and... More

We visited with my family and booked 2 rooms and 1 apartment, the rooms were well equipped and came with bottled water and biscuits and my family all slept well. On entering our apartment which was away from the hotel we loved the decor and the fact the kitchen had a microwave. Our cold water tap only pumped out hot... More

Excellent location, spacious room and well equiped bathroom including flannels which we appreciated. Very big bed and crisp bedlinnen and thick towels. Complimentary bottled water was a nice touch as was the biscuits provided with the tea/coffee making facilities. We had our meals at the hotel which were good value for money and the dining area was very quirky which... More
