The location is ideal for the traveler seeking a central location. The rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable. The room size represents a European standard and not similar in size to an American hotel. Regardless, the room space was adequate for the two of us. Very nice breakfast in the morning provided with an Irish smile! Would definitely return

Very nice hotel with extremely helpful staff. The staff helped us check in to our rooms despite arriving several hours early. They also helped us plan our events for the next three days in Dublin and were able to purchase tickets for some of the events (On and Off Bus, Guinness Factory Tour). The hotel is close the major attractions... More

Visited in July with wife and paid a lot of money to stay as concert on at time. Allocated an old room with dated bathroom/shower and room was very very warm. The heat of the room and Dublin was enjoying a hot spell so we needed to put the A/C on to try and sleep. Unfortunately, the A/C was like... More

First time visit, so I was free to shop and tour for four days. I would highly recommend this hotel for its central location to everything I wanted to walk to . The main shopping streets, Trinity College, Merrion Square and the National Art Gallery and Museum. Lots of food places all around and lively free street entertainment. The breakfast... More

We were here for less than 24 hours, but this hotel delivered everything we needed -- comfortable rooms and great location. The front desk staff could not have been more accommodating. The decor is pretty basic, but it's convenient with nice people and a full bar. What else is really important?

Location wise I cannot fault this hotel it is located near everywhere you need to be as well as places to eat and all the museums you would possible need to get to. Staff seem a bit arrogant, but seem okay when you ask a question etc. The room I would say is comfortable with huge queen sized beds but... More

We stayed here for our first trip to Dublin as we wanted a fairly central location but not at a crazy price. The check-in was good - they let us have our rooms early as we had arrived on an early flight. The rooms were good and not noisy for City Centre. Once we got our bearings it was easy... More

While visiting Dublin, Ireland stayed at this hotel. Accommodations were very nice and restaurant was very good. We took advantage of the hop-on hop-off bus to tour the city and then picked attractions we wanted to visit. The weather was great. This was the first hotel on our tour to have air conditioning.
