The balcony door was unsecure, the TV reception was poor and the Wifi was also down for most of the first night. Room was clean, bed good and food fine. When I requested a discount for leaving early before breakfast along with the points above, I was simply told "No". Would not recommend or stay here again.

I will say this Guesthouse was in a good location. We took the bus from the airport which dropped us off a street away which was a short walk to the Guesthouse. The staff were not friendly, not helpful in anyway and didn't seem to know anything about the bus route or anything else in the area. The breakfast was... More

I wouldn't leave my dogs at the Glen Guesthouse. There was no temperature control in the rooms and the bathroom was dirty. The site advertised wifi, but it only worked in the "lobby", which was a small room with a makeshift desk and a chair. There was no elevator, so we had to drag our bags up four flights of... More

I stayed at the Glen Guesthouse for 4 nights in May 2014. It's a budget hotel in a great central location, opposite one of the bus stops on the 747 Airport bus route. One of the main shopping streets, O'Connell Street, is about 7 mins walk away, and the bars and nightlife of Temple Bar are 15 mins walk away.... More

I choose this place based on several good reviews. I'm not sure who wrote those reviews, though this is the second BAD experience I've had paying attention to Tripadvisor reviews. The Glen Guesthouse is apparently one of several B&B's owned by the same people (not Irish) on Lower Gardiner Street. It's first of all MUCH to expensive for the location... More
