The hotel is well situated on the edge of Temple Bar and is therefore quieter and cheaper than other hotels in the area. Don't have any complaints about the hotel (and happy to stay there again) except that ALL rooms are smoking rooms (with ashtrays on show). I though this was illegal in Ireland!! It's almost impossible to get rid of the smell of cigarette smoke, even with the window open. When I raised the issue I was told that it was difficult to have non-smoking rooms in a hotel of this size. What?? Anyway, the people were nice and the breakfast OK and if they only followed normal hotel practice, I'd be able to recommend it wholeheartedly!
