For a short weekend getaway to Dublin this hotel was excellent. Great location, bus from the airport dropped off was right outside from the hotel. Great pub down the road with live music every night and just a short walk to the city town centre. The receptionist where very friendly, as we arrived before check in they where very kind... More

We stayed there for several nights, and to be honest, I don't understand why some ppl complain about location - It really is great. Value to money ratio is really good. The standard is not high but it's no 5* hotel! The service is very friendly. Also the opinions about the area being bad are exaggerated. I do recommend this... More

The shower stops automatically when the water is hot, and... and I had shampoo on it!! I waited for 30 min and nothing happened. I went downstairs, to reception, and I complained about it with my hair wet... and the people in reception said that I should have gone before because they didn't know it. I didn't like that reaction...... More

This hotel was cheap and close to the centre, a 15 minute walk to Temple Bar. It was perfect for our needs of a short weekend in Dublin, where we planned not to spend to much time in the room. I wouldn't book this hotel if I planned to spend time in the room.

Stayed here twice. Both times I was pretty satisfied. Cheap and basic but you get what you pay for. Staff were lovely too. Breakfast was nothing special but was a basic breakfast. Was kept clean but very run down and in a good location. Hint: get a room at the back. The guest house is situated on a very busy... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night on July 27th. On our way there a cab driver told us that it was a bad area and to watch our bags. That was our first clue. Yes, it's a short walk to centre city but it's a bad area. Upon arrival we were made to pay up front. This... More

This hotel is in a good location and the rooms are about average. There is only bar soap and nothing else, so come with your own bath accessories if you want shampoo, etc. The ceilings are high and there is a big window, so it feels very spacious. Again though, it was just an average room but definitely worth the... More
