This hotel is in a perfect location. You are within 5-10 min walking distance of both Grafton street and O'Connell street. The room we had was a little small but very clean with a comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet is excellent offering a wide selection of foods from fruits, yoghurt, cereals and pastries, or the fry up if that's what you desire! Most of the staff are very friendly and helpful. If you have a car the parking situation can be a little tricky at first. First of all the set down area outside of the hotel is usually full with buses or taxis so it's difficult to offload luggage, then get the parking permit and then park the car. Parking is around the corner from the hotel (2-3 min walk) and is at a rate of 10 euro per day. You can get a permit to last your stay, however when we first arrived we were told we had to renew the permit each day which is not the case. Our room was facing on to the street and i thought at first it was going to be noisy at night. It actually wasn't bad despite being next door to the fire station. This was my second stay at this hotel and would likely stay again for location and value for money.
