Really nice hotel. Taste of old Dublin. Staff very friendly, library bar is fantastic place to get away from busy Dublin streets. Fantastic location. Wifi decent strength. But the rooms are too small. We had a twin room. Huge wardrobe, sort of walk in thing made movement restricted so I never would have bothered trying to get the clothes into... More

Couple of nights spent at start of holiday. Good bits - hotel is well located and reasonably priced. Not so good bits - room is small to the pont where i couldn't swing a cat unless it was a kitten with a growing disorder. Room has very little ventilation - if you want air there is a small window overlooking... More

When I came to the hotel, I loved it: the situation, the building, the design, also the rooms, but... The hotel is near to many pubs specially one who is walls to walls, music and screams of drunk people feels as closer as if they were inside the room. Except of that is a good hotel... but the noise is... More

We had a third floor suite and it looked liked tenement housing. It was extremely dark, very few lights. Shabby carpet. The tiniest flat screen TVs in both rooms the same size of our desk computer. It was very hot in the room, no air conditioning. We asked for a fan and a few hours later asked again and got... More

As it was all that was available, we booked a suite, but it was worth it - a spacious room, with a separate dressing area and enormous bathroom, with large Jacuzzi bath.. The hotel is on a corner with roads on 3 sides, so there is inevitably noise from the street. However, we slept with the windows shut and were... More

The hotel is as its names suggests: Central! It is a place to rest your head but you wouldn't want to hang out there for too long. The shopping area was great and it's so close to everything. The room was clean as was the bathroom and I would say that the bedding could do with an update but I... More

I got a single room on the 3rd floor. I could hear everything above and to the two sides of me. The window was so dirty I couldn't see out. The street noise flooded in through the thin panes of glass. The bed was so small I've seen cots bigger. If the prison cells in mount joy were as small... More

I booked my mother in here when she visited town, as the price per night was quite reasonable compared to other city hotels. Given that it was a single room, one shouldn't complain about the size - but it was pretty small. Someone with a heavy build (or pregnant, as I am at the moment) would not necessarily be able...

Attended a private function here. The buffet food was very tasty and the bar service for the guests was excellent. I watched the receptionist checking in some guests in the foyer and she was very attentive and informative. I did not see any of the bedrooms but the location for a hotel in Dublin just off Dame Street between Grafton... More
