Our first mistake was booking through Hotels.Com. Our second, believing the pictures. Yes, the outside of the "hotel" looks as it does int he picture. But it should be advertised as a really cheap and dirty hostel. It was dirty, grimey and run-down from the hotel lobby to the room. The room, a double, did have a bed. That is the only good thing to say: the carpet must have been installed a good 30 years ago, as they were caked with black dirt wear patterns. There was actually food ground into the carpet that had very obviously not seen a vacuum in months - maybe years. The smell in the room was that of body sweat and staleness. It was warm when we were there, the window was wide open (w/o a screen) and it was probably 80 degrees in the room. The bed had a 40 degree slope. We genuinely feared bed bugs. Overall, this place was disgusting, dirty, dingy and in need of much MUCH renovation to be advertised as a hotel. The ONLY thing going for it was it's proximty to Temple Bar - and frankly, there are far better hotels even closer if that is what you are looking for. PLEASE AVOID THIS HORRIBLE PLACE.
