Overpriced for what you get. We had trouble even getting in one morning. You get a discount on food downstairs but it isn't worth it. And they'll claim they have free breakfast and they totally don't. Every day they had a new excuse why there was no food out. Lame. I'm normally not picky at all. I can put up... More

On booking this so called 'hotel' I was pleased as it looked spectacular online much to my disappointment when I arrived it was awful. The room was tiny with an en suite which smelt of damp, had no shower curtain which didn't matter as you would of been just as filthy after having a shower it was that bad...the towels... More

On a Christmas night out, my three sisters and I were supposed to stay here. One of my sisters booked this, admittedly none of us thought about reading any reviews. On the plus side the bar man that checked us in was a really nice guy, but I have to say that's the only good thing I can say about... More

Not going to write too much here because there's not much to say. This was probably one of the worst rooms I've ever had to misfortune to stay in. Yes I had read the reviews beforehand but I didn't book this my brother did (for 10 of us). At least we could laugh about it and it'll be a talking... More

So landed into the Metropole on a late Friday evening to join a stag party. Within a couple of minutes you can gauge what a place will be like and I knew the Metropole was not going to be good! The first issue was being told by the person behind the bar he'd be with me in a minute. Approximately... More

Stayed here on a stag do recently, our party of 10 (all professionals in our 30s) where somewhat surprised to be asked for €40 each as a 'Security deposit' on arrival.We had 2 rooms, a room with 2 and the rest in a dorm. Upon arrival in my room, I was shocked to discover that the wallpaper was hanging off... More

I was due to stay here as part of a stag party. There were about ten of us and we were split up around several different rooms. The standard of hygiene was atrocious and the service was horrendous. We arrived later than the rest of the group and we were grabbing a quick (cold) shower in the retro blue moulded... More

There was a considerable hole under the lino in the bathroom floor likely to cause injury at some point. The wallpaper was hanging off the ceiling. No hot water. Mould on the shower curtain. Radiator wouldn't turn off and the room was like a sauna. Mattress had broken springs. Pretty much the worst place I've stayed in.

I thought I was getting an OK deal on this hotel/hostel for the night. I wasn't. We arrived to a dirty room with the walls peeling. The bathroom was disgusting and they provided no soap or waste bin. To top it off the room next to us was screaming and shouting until 8am therefore making it a tired final day... More
