This is where you pay for what you get. On the positives the staff were friendly and helpful, Breakfast was nice and set us up for the day. The shower was hot and lovely. Fresh towels every day. Have stayed on Lower Gardener Street before so knew it was busy but ideal for getting to the hub of it all.... More

Worse guest house Iv ever stayed in, it's so run down and unsafe, very small damp rooms with unsafe plumbing and electrics. Really needs a lot of money spending through out the building. Staff work hard and is a good location but does not make up for condition of the building.

Probably the best deal you're going to find in Dublin. This B&B has a prime location right near the river on a street and is right on a street with other B&B locations. The things you sacrifice for the cheap price are 1) space and 2) private bathroom (you do get your own shower). For me, that was no problem... More

Stayed for three nights and I have to say that it was truly...average. The breakfast wasn't great but the shower was hot. The room was warm (end of January) but the bed was too soft. There is free wifi but no tea or coffee making facilities. Truly average....nothing more to be said.

Arrived to find we were expected to climb very narrow stairways to our rooms after requesting low level. The rooms were not at all good, cramped, uncomfortable and the bathroom was dingy, tiles coming off the walls. As the room was family room there was a single bed cramped into one corner leaving very little room to walk round the... More

Hi Gillian G Sorry your stay was not as good as expected, a number of the issues you highlight are mainly out of our control unless they are brought to our attention. We offer budget rooms in the heart of Dublin City Centre, we offer a hearty breakfast in our refurnished dining room, we are continually updating our product and... More

We booked here for one night this week as we were coming down from Belfast to fly out of Dublin. We are not generally picky about our hotels and usually just look for a clean place to sleep. Upon arrival we were met at reception by someone that barely understood English and it took us a good fifteen minutes to... More

Booked last minute after struggling to find somewhere in a good location for a good price. Was a bit sceptical after reading the trip advisor reviews but I have got to say I was pleasantly surprised. Great location, perfect for what we wanted as 2 students looking for a cheap weekend getaway. Comfy beds with a small shower in the... More

We booked 2 nights double room ensuite in this awful place for £180 which is real joke. The room we were given was up several flights of stairs & had only a bed, chair & TV which doubled for wardrobe with coat hangers hanging off bracket. Nothing else in room, no side light, tea making or anything else. Just a... More
