The hotel is well situated about a block from the metro and about a 20 minute walk to St. Stephen's Green and the Spire. Only little problem was that the room was... More

He was extremely friendly, helpful and pleasant. An absolute credit to the hotel. Our room was great. Big, warm, spotlessly clean... More

Fantastic hotel. My second time at the hotel. Great value. Conveniently situated for the centre of Dublin, about 10-15mins walk. Very friendly and helpful staff. I highly recommend it and will stay there again when next in town. Thank you to everyone who made it such a pleasure to stay there.
