Horrible horrible place. Staff hateful. Place smells of smoke and cigarette butts lying inside bar. Worst place we have ever stayed in our life. Joke of a place. Noisy and rooms are from the 1970s. We will never ever be back.

This hotel is typical of places in this area. Older rooms but cheap and comfy. Don't expect the Ritz, but do expect a warm welcome and friendly service from Michelle and the team. Temple Bar 10 mins walk. Arlington/Legends a good nearby car. Good bar in hotel too.

The hotel is more of a younger crowd. It was quite while we were there but were warned by some locals that it was a party spot. Walking distance to everything. The room was clean and the staff was very nice and helpful.

Arrived, and was made to wait in a dirty pub bar for 40 minutes whislt the cleaners finished the room... went upstairs and can honestly not say what they were doing in those 40 minutes but the room looked like a dump, dirty toilet bowl et al! Not the Hotels fault per se, but the 3 boys in the adjacent... More

Location feels quite deserted, but it is not too far from the main drag. About a 15 minute walk to Temple Bar. Service is not great - I emailed them and they never got back to me. The lobby front desk is not usually manned when we were there. The facilities from the carpeting, flooring and walls are very cheap... More

DO NOT believe the photos you see of this hotel.. The room we got was far from what we thought we would have. Very disappointed and what made it worse.. the bar had karaoke on Saturday and Sunday nights. This place left me speechless and not in a good way! Only thing good about this place might be the location..

We stayed here for 2 night over a weekend. It happened to be the weekend of the all Ireland football final which Dublin played in and won. The rooms are over the bar and there was music both Saturday and Sunday. Noise was a problem on Saturday bet we solved that on Sunday by joining in the celebrations at the... More

I would not recommend this hotel, even as a student traveller I was disappointed to say the least! We stayed in a three x single room, it was not good. The bathroom was tiny and if you had more than an average sized waist you wouldn't be able to get to the shower. The windows were paper thin and you... More

My friends and i stayed at this hotel for St Patricks day weekend, fair enough we didnt pay a lot for the hote; but we at least expected the mould and damp to be gone and this was their opening weekend. The plus sides of this hotel are, the location (10 minute walk from Temple Bar), the staff in the... More
