Great centrally located hotel in Dublin. Rooms were super clean and basic. Surrounded by great restaurants. This is NOT the hotel to stay at if you are looking for 5-Star service. It's definitely a great 2 or 3 star hotel in a fantastic location. Staff were very kind, polite, and helpful.

Booked this only a week before staying as we were having a celebration night on the town for my partners birthday and it was perfect. I mentioned at the time of reservation that it was a very special occasion and we got the most brilliant room including a bath with steps up into it, hilarious, like something from an Imperial...

We liked this hotel so much that we returned just four months after our first stay there. It was just as good the second time: quiet room, terrific location, wonderful staff, delicious breakfasts. This time we had trouble figuring out how to turn on one of the lights in our room so called the desk. Almost immediately we heard a... More

We slept there for S.Patrick's day and the night before. In spite of our last minute reservation we found a double room not too expensive. The hotel is in a good position to reach every place or pub. Our room was little but comfy and clean, there was a kettle for tea and cups available. Cleaning service every day and... More

Ideally located for a weekend in Dublin. 15 minute walk from the bus or train station, central for shopping & 2 minutes from Temple Bar. Staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant and the breakfast was superb. The Library lounge was very pleasant. The ONLY issue was that we had a room facing onto the main street, and it tended to... More

I stayed here when in Dublin for the Ireland v England rugby match. Firstly I was surprised to be able to book a hotel in the heart of the city so easily and one that appeared to be so good. On arrival I wasn't disappointed and the staff were very polite and helpful. Due to the time I was unable... More

I stayed here for just one night and it was excellent value. Close to all city centre amenities. The room was clean and the staff in the dining room were friendly and efficient. Definitely a place to stay in centre of Dublin.

Felt this hotel worthy of another review due to the negativity posted by some people. I stayed here previously 2 years ago and returned in January this year for 2 nights. The hotel as its name is in a very central location and easy to get to the main sights of the city. The rooms fairly basic but this is... More

Decor is a little tired, poor lighting if you have work to do, no ceiling light just lamps with some shades that have seen better days. However more importantly room and bathroom was spotless. Some low level street noise, this is my second stay and this was not an issue first time round so if you're a light sleeper may... More

Let me preface this review by saying that I have not stayed in this hotel. I attended a course here recently but was not the organiser so can't comment on the price paid for the use of facilities. First thing first, the location is very central right in the centre of town and very easily accessible so if this is... More
