I booked this hotel for a one night stay for myself and my boyfriend for a birthday trip to Dublin. It was a good price for a four star hotel and it is in a very central location. I didn't listen to reviews as most of them said it was noisy at weekends and we were there on a Monday... More

Only book this hotel if you are going to party in Dublin and dont care about noise or having a clean, nice room with unwelcoming staff. The only positive is the bar / club which has a great choice of drinks and plates. The hotel needs refurbished. at 150 pounds I expected a lot more from a 4 star hotel.... More

Stayed here on a recent Saturday night. On the surface the hotel is lovely. Clean, bright rooms. Excellent location. Great staff. We checked in around 12 and our room wasn't ready due to us being early so we dropped off our bags. When we returned pur bags had been left in the room and we had a hassle free check... More

This hotel is in a great location right at the city centre, we had requested a quiet room and were given a suite facing the main road. Very noisy with the windows open and hot and airless with them shut. Has aircon but very noisy if left on. This hotel has seen better days and is in desperate need of... More

Rooms are just basic as any other hotel, bed, wardrobe, TV and en-suite bathroom Very clean but slightly tired and worn. Nice to have a porter which gives elements of grandure On returning from an evening out we could hear the music from the nightclub but didn't really make a difference to sleep. Staff very helpful If you want something... More

The location is amazing, steps away from St. Stephen's Green, but I'm still debating whether even that was worth the noise and hard beds. I'd read reviews that pointed out the location of a bar/club below the hotel, but thought I could deal with a little noise for the trade off off it's excellent location. Still not sure. This was...

I appreciate that they mention about some music playing but I stayed in room 205 on 13th of August 2015 and I couldn't believe that they were able to sell a room to someone with this sort of noise level. It was a nice enough looking hotel but it was ruined for me by the complete lack of sleep we... More

What a fabulous hotel, we had a gorgeous shabby chic room. The hotel was in an ideal location, a short stroll from all the action. The staff were fabulous and couldn't do enough for you. We were a little high maintenance and phoned them quite a few times, they appeared at our room straightaway and brought us bottled water, ice,... More
