I've stayed here before back in 2009 in the "Edwardian apartment" so thought I'd try it again as it was a good room. When I booked that option again, upon arrival I got taken upstairs to a dark windowless hovel. The pizza box from whoever was there prior wasn't cleaned away, the bed was something not even as good as... More

I wish I had read these reviews before staying here! Do not book! This place is absolutely not a good option. The management is grumpy, the place is full of construction tools and mess and the room was dirty and poorly maintained. Damp, smelly and scummy. Stained sheets, dirty walls, broken electrical fittings, rotting lino, cracked basin, missing lightbulbs, etc... More

Hotel of poor standard, very old furniture, unkept standard of accommodation is best description, cobwebs, stained carpet, not clean etc Refund requested after first night but manager refused to credit remaining two nights. I left and checked into Quest down the road, steer clear of this hotel if you expect minimum 3 star level accommodation.

Damp smelly room, dirty shower, cracked basin, sheets smelling of liniment, need I go on? Don't go there. The only thing going for it was it was handy to our friend's place and we could walk to where we wanted to go.

A bargain in Parnell! A large room, clean linen, adequate bathroom and kitchenette, helpful staff, and bus stop right outside. It was tired and could do with a good spring clean, but I felt very happy to stay (and I'm fussy!) and it was good value for money.

Don't book here. Dirty, smelly, rude. Only wish I'd read the previous reviews on here before I booked. Worst decision I've made in a long time. Don't trust the online pictures - place is nothing like it

This place looks OK on the outside, but what a dump!! It is under renos, but that is no excuse. Our room was dingy and dirty (there were even a pair of dirty socks under the bedskirt...NOT OURS!). Towels were grey and stained and dishes were not clean either and no real cooking pots or pans. The only good thing... More

I didn't stay here, but my mum did. Useless owner gave me the wrong extension to my mother's room, which resulted in us not being able to contact each other for four days. He told my mother he thought she might not want me put through to her room because we might have "family issues". Weirdo. Took him two days... More

We booked 2 nights at this hotel through AA and only stayed one. He wouldnt refund our 2nd night. Our room was tidy but very unclean. Nail polish and other stains on the duvet cover and curtains, stained towels and bathmat looked unwashed. Splatter from cooking on the walls and doors look never cleaned! Even a hair in the shower!... More
