Very good location, nice staff. But the room was too small, you couln't even sit down in the room. The walls are thin, you can hear everything from the neighbours. The wifi did not work much on my floor. But for the short stay I had in Dublin, it was useful, because it was close to everything.

I stayed here by accident. I really did; it was a terrible accident. The photos of the hotel are nothing like those protrayed on the booking.com website. I had to climb over 2 people sheltering from the rain in the doorway to find the buzzer, to be let in eventually. Got checked in pretty quickly by a really friendly receptionist.... More

Seedy, smelling of disinfectant and air freshener, and with ghastly amplified music emanating from below, making the floor hum, it was so loud. Impossible to sleep with that thunder. A nightmare.Don't touch it with a bargepole.
