Absolutely one of the worst places I have ever seen in my travels. Whoever designed their website should win some sort of award. When we told the cab driver where to drop us off, his first reaction was, are you sure???? When you pull up, there is a black door, with no windows and no front reception area. You have... More

As with a lot of the below reviews, it is a shock when you first arrive and look at the building. 'Maintenance' is a word the management needs to look up. After getting over the inital appearance of the Hotel , you do get what you pay for. The staff were friendly. The bathroom was clean. Bed was fresh (albeit... More

The Gate Hotel is perfect if you are looking for a cheap, clean place to stay near all of Dublin's attractions. It is located right off of O'Connell street; you are in walking distance of Trinity College, lots of shopping and restaurants, Temple Bar, and the Liffey (and all of its bridges). Don't judge the Gate by the exterior! Its... More

I have stayed at the Gate twice in the last 6 months once whilst working in the area and for 2 nights at St Paddys night. The outside looks a bit scary as its next to the entrance of a rock bar.However I like its quirkiness and the wonky stairs and the fact that the rooms are bigger in general... More

The gate hotel is not the most aesthetically pleasing from the outside with the entrance door hidden at a bus stop next to a closed bar makes it look like a scene from Roddy Doyles "the Commitments". This part of Dublin although just off the main thoroughfare of O'Connelle St. has changed very little over the last few decades as... More

Close to the city centre & easily accessible by the airport shuttle, The Gate Hotel is staffed by friendly Dubliners who are always happy to help or offer their local knowledge. My second floor room (3rd floor for US Americans) for four evenings in late November '14 was immaculately kept, with a nice bathroom en suite, & view of Parnell... More

It was a Friday night and a friend had messed up booking our rooms but Ann was more than helpful and managed to sort it so that our party of 5 had the biggest room in the place for the night. The room was clean and comfortable and for the price was excellent value. The chap on reception overnight was... More

I was charged twice for my rooms as we booked with Booking.com using my credit card but only had my husbands on the trip so The Gate Hotel told us after we had stayed there that they would have to charge us again!!! Sounds ridiculous but it's true - they are carrying out frauds and we are still trying to... More
