Now for the negatives: - One side of the bed was completely broken. The manager offered us their last available room, but it had no heating and would have been freezing. Though he did... More

My husband and I were here for a day trip in January 2015 and found the hotel excellent and convenient. We arrived by train at Heuston Station and took bus 66 to Merrion Square and then walked over to the hotel with our luggage (any Merrion Square bus may also do the trick though you'll want to double-check). Although we... More

Breakfast excellent value for money and brilliant choice (all you can eat irish breakfast- sausages, eggs, or continental, or fruit, the whole lot!) Furthermore, the staff were very helpful and friendly! Rooms good size and comfortable beds! Great location too, very pleasant stay :)

Unfortunately we had a bad experience in this hotel. It is very old (not in a unique fashionable way), our party had a total of 2 rooms in the hotel both which so cold we needed to complain, our shower didn't run smoothly (water was flowing out jerky), and breakfast was very average. I felt misled that it wasn't walking... More

New Year in Dublin My Wife and I used this hotel as a base for the New Year Celebrations. The hotel is overall very good, however our bathroom could have done with updating and the bath was more like a foot Spa for depth. The staffs were very warm and friendly. The position was idea, close enough to have a... More

This hotel was great for us. We stayed for three nights as part of our day 10 day journey across Europe. The staff were very friendly. The hotel was clean and presentable. Rooms were comfortable and spacious which is a welcome find in Europe. We highly recommend staying here if you are ever in Dublin.
