This hotel has a fantastic location. As the name would suggest, it was centrally located to many things a visitor would want to see & do. While the rooms are not anything fancy, they are clean and the beds are comfortable, though the shower was a little on the tiny side. Overall, I had a comfortable stay and slept perfectly... More

The only downside's are: 1. There... More

We stayed this hotel for 5 days and it was quite good and clean. But building was a little bit old and rooms were small. You can walk to the most atraction places from the hotel. Breakfast was enough and delicious. To sum I recomend this hotel to everyone.

Oh dear where do I start? Dirty and dusty. Poor lighting in rooms. Uncomfortable beds and the noise of hotel both inside and out means no sleep. When I mentioned this to bloke on desk I just had a shrug of shoulders. I also had credit card issues. I emailed the hotel my views upon return and they still did... More

We had our wedding at this hotel a few weeks ago and it was amazing! The staff was fantastic and so accommodating. We had guests stay here from all over the world, all of whom had only great things to say! The location was perfect for all of the pre and post wedding events we hosted. I would recommend this...

Great value for my spacious and freshly decorated single en-suite room. Courteous and efficient reception both when arriving and departing. One treasure in the hotel is the Library Bar on the 1st floor, I recommend the lovely atmosphere here.

Been to Dublin several times. Stayed at different hotels. This was definitely the best location. Near public transport. Bus 16 from the airport. Near Temple Bar, and Grafton Street what more could you want. Unfortunately we arrived around midnight due to flight delay. Room was probably the smallest in hotel, nice comfortable bed but only about two feet from window... More

If you want to be in the heart of the action, this is good value for location. The only thing is you have to be ready for the night action which really goes until morning, so bring earplugs. Also try to arrive early to get a decent room. We arrived late on our 2nd stay and the rooms were not... More
