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

Lovely hotel in the centre of town. We had a beautiful room with a HUGE bath! Well worth the €75 per night. Only downside is the noise from the bar below, it was loud until the wee hours, luckily I'm a deep sleeper. Would stay again without a doubt.

we booked this hotel just because the strategic position between some of the areas we wanted to visit. and indeed, everything was nearbye, but i'm afraid that's the only strong point. We regfused the very small room on the third floor we got because of the constant noise of a blower in the court. As it was fully-booked they had... More

This hotel is a great location and a great price. Also the library bar is fantastic with character and a lovely atmosphere. Our problem was the freezing cold room, which was room 325, we checked in at 5 pm and went to the room which was freezing, we checked the windows which were closed but had a draught. The heater...

Best thing about this hotel is the location. Everything is literally not more than 10 minutes away by foot, Stephens Green, Grafton Street, O'Connell Street, Trinity College, Temple Bar. The Library Bar is one of the nicest in Dublin, very cosy with open fires. A delight. On the minus side, rooms are on the small side, especially the shower. An... More

Stayed here for one night. It is in an excellent location with the Temple Bar area a short walk away. In addition there are lots of amenities nearby. The hotel itself was good. The rooms were a good size and clean and despite the hotel being on a main road I didn't find it overly noisy. The beds were very... More

This Hotel is in a superb location in City Centre, three minutes from Grafton St and Trinity College. The room was very spacious and bathroom was enormous. We booked on a 'Room only' basis. The Library bar on the first floor is very cosy and warm, and is open to non guests.
