This was our first time in Dublin and what a great hotel, we were made very welcome by all the friendly staff. The rooms were clean comfortable with all the creature comforts. The hotel is situated close to numerous bars and restaurants and a 15 minute walk to the temple bar area.

This hotel was in a GREAT location. It took only a few minutes to get to restaurants and the busy area of Dublin; about ten minutes to get to Temple Bar. The room was nice and I have no complaints. I would stay here again.

Great location, very short walk into town and no town centre noise (our room was at the back of the hotel).
Enormous comfortable bed, enjoyed breakfast, staff friendly and helpful, would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Having seen other comments: Rooms at the back of the Hotel are relatively quiet.

My wife and I stayed a total of 3 nights at this Hotel. It is conveniently located, very comfortable, and best of all, the staff is extremely friendly and eager to help. We are from Colorado, USA and this was a dream trip of a lifetime to be able to come to Ireland. We did not opt for the bus tours. Instead, we took public transportation and "shoe leather express" while in Dublin and the rented a car for the trip around Ireland. On the morning of our departure to return home, the Hotel had their breakfast staff open the restaurant early by 30 minutes so we could eat prior to taking a taxi ride to the airport for a morning flight. I fully recommend this Hotel. You will love your stay with them.

Room Tip: The Hotel is very quiet since it is a couple of blks off some of the main streets.

I recently stayed here as I had an exam in the city centre. Staff were friendly and helpful, my room was lovely. I would definitely recommend staying here as it was great value for a nice hotel in central Dublin

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We arrived at noon and were able to get into our room right away. There wasn't any way to turn on the towel warmer. Comforable room in front of hotel which did prove a little noisy during the night. We had to leave early for return home and was provided breakfast (cold) cereal, yogurt, fruit,cheese, pastry, coffee, tea etc. before 7:00am. At 7:00 am we could then order hot breakfast/use buffet line but had to leave. Happy to get coffee and a cold breakfast. We were able to checkout of our rooms and the hotel kept our bags until later in the day to pick up when we had the rental car after our first two night stay. Service very good. We were going to take a bus/airport coach back to the airport but the staff advised a cab cost about the same for four. It was raining that morning so the cab worked out pertfectly. No walk with bags to the bus stop. Overall happy with our stay.

Room Tip: Front hotel rooms noisy at night on second floor.

This hotel is in a great location, very central for touring around Dublin. We arrived on an early flight and thankfully were able to check in early in the morning. This was a huge plus. Buffet breakfast was good. Thought it was pricey to stay here, but we did stay for a weekend. Shower was very difficult, weak water pressure and difficult to get the temperature right.
