3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed two nights, at the end of a week long trip around Ireland. The room was clean, beds comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was well prepared, servers were pleasant. It was a bit of a walk into the center of Dublin for shopping, but nice after a week of driving.

Very warm and nice welcome from the only male person on desk. Basic but very clean rooms. Breakfast buffet was good quality except for Orange juice, was frequently maintained and floor staff excellent. Overall an enjoyable stay with a feeling of good value for money.

The room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the second floor facing the car-park. The room was a lot more modern-looking than appeared from the photos. 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
