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 stayed here recently with my sister-i had thought it was pricey for one night but the location was good. Hotel itself doesn't look great once you get upstairs. we were out for most of the evening. I came back on my own and my card didn't work-i went downstairs to get help and there was no one there-i eventually... 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

Our friends chose this hotel and we booked as wanted to be close to them and reviews/prices were okay. Certain things stated in the reviews were spot on....It is a great location, beds were firm but comfortable, older but pretty clean. Also very noisy! Being a light sleeper, I picked up on this quickly and asked for a quieter room.... More

The hotel is just off Dame St so is convenient for all sightseeing including Temple Bar without the noise that comes with that area. The rooms are a good size and the receptionist efficient and welcoming. A big bonus is the Library bar on the first floor.- lovely atmosphere and décor. We would stay here again
