We stayed at the hotel a while ago and I would not recommend it...badly organised...staff unfriendly, you don't get a feeling of being safe or anything. However, we have stayed at the apartments at the back, and this is what I am reviewing today. The apartments are quite modern and good value but the walk to go around the back... More

Had a terrible time in this hotel. Me and my friend were hoping for cheap and cheerful and got cheap but in no where cheerful. The room was stale and mouldy. You couldn't swing a mouse in the bathroom never mind a cat. Our room was on the ground floor by the front of the building. To get into the... More

Nice and friendly hotel. At a walking distance of city centre. The street is busy and therfore noisy. Missing is a mirror in the bathroom, .

Unless this hotel has improved its shoddy room doors, which you cannot secure lock from the inside, I would sincerely urge female solo travellers to NOT STAY in My Place Dublin, formerly Browns Hotel. My WORST hotel experience ever

This hotel was old, the bathroom was mouldy and small. The hot water barely worked. The cleaner literally threw a towel at you in the morning and that's what they called "cleaning". My friend stayed in the "luxury Room" and was bitten by fleas. It's located near the city centre but on a dodgy street. The staff were clueless and... More

Stayed at Brown's Hotel as part of a short break with my Fiance. After reading the reviews I was not expecting too much from the hotel. We arrived slightly early to check in however the room was ready and we were given the keys. At first it seemed as though the door did not have a lock, and after asking... More

We booked this hotel as we were going to Croke park , to see Westlife, and its only a 10 minute walk to it. On reading the reviews we were very apprehensive i must say!! As we were only staying one night we only brought minimal belongings.. We arrived an hour early to check in, but staff were only too... More

The room was small, and the bathroom was even smaller. No more than 1 person at a time could be in it at a time, so it was difficult to get ready. The shower was moldy and the whole room and bathroom were just generally unclean and unkempt. It's an older building that has obviously not been updated as well... More

We stayed in the so called luxury appartments for my partners birthday, what a mistake. The apartment we were given was not clean, noisy but more importantly not safe. They are meant to be self catering but you are unable to cook in them due to the fact the cooker is not cleanrd and there is no cuttlery or even... More
