Great hotel, booked based on the reviews on here and was not disappointed. Location is a little out of the centre but it's only a 20 minute walk which was quite a nice walk too. The hotel staff were all very friendly and the bar was decent too.

Visited the hotel this morning. The service was amazing. Had a problem and Sylvia from Hungary sorted it out so quickly and efficiently. If you have employee of the month would recommend Sylvia for it.

Its located a stones throw from grand canal dock and only a short spin into tara street in city centre. Its also a nice stroll if you need a bit of fresh air. Its about 15... More

Stayed for a night in Dublin and it was lovely. The staff were all so friendly and enjoyed conversing. The room was comfortable and more than we expected! Was sad to leave the next morning! I'd definitely come back for another stay for a few more nights as one night wasn't enough! We really enjoyed it and we'd recommend it... More

Stayed here for a weekend sightseeing, everything about the hotel met my expectations and was good value, the most important things were good (staff, bed, shower) and I could have no complaints. Whilst I did not find anything particularly special about this hotel, there was nothing wrong either.

Our son and family live across the street, so this location could not be beat, but we would stay here anyway. It is a very nice hotel, rooms are good sized and very comfortable. The lobby is lovely and inviting. The attached bar/pub is fine. We had a drink there, but did not eat in the hotel at all. There... More
