Stayed here for 3 nights and could not of asked for any better. The room was great, staff was helpful and kind, everything you could want from a city hotel stay. Not far from any main tourest hot spots and shops.
Would 100% go back there next time. :)

This place advertises as a 4 Star online which is definitely not the case! It's a decent 2 star at best. Walking on the floorboards in this place makes you fell like your in an attic. The female receptionist at checkout was an absolute joke. but I must say the guy who checked me in was very helpful, The cleanliness wasn't the greatest and the mattress mush have been there since Dev was a corporal in the FCA! It was minging! Honestly! Avoid if you can afford it!

Room Tip: The trains don't run at night so ask for a room at the back and you should get a good few train...

My daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights last weekend and I must say that I was very happy that I chose this hotel. I normally stay at Wynn's Hotel when I visit Dublin but as it was fully booked I had to choose another hotel for this trip and I'm really glad that I picked The North Star. It is so close to Connolly Station , Busaras , The Luas and only a 5 minute walk to O'Connell Street.
On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist, Ignacio. I had requested a smoking room but he told me that there wasn't any available but he could see that I was very disappointed and made a quick phone call and got me an upgrade to a superior room where I could smoke.... needless to say, I was thrilled. The room was lovely and very comfortable, in fact the whole hotel was beautifully decorated.
The breakfast was great, a wonderful variety. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming, especially Ignacio and Vera.
All in all a very nice hotel, very comfortable with extremely pleasant staff and close to all amenities. I would definitely stay here again.

My husband & I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights & we really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is very well located next to the train station & is only a few minutes walk from O'Connell street. The staff were lovely and the bar was really nice. The breakfast which was included in our deal was excellent. Unfortunately we did not eat evening meals in the hotel but the menu looked great. Would definently stay in this hotel again - great value for money.

An enjoyable few days in Dublin. The hotel is fine. It has a great location just beside connoll station and mins to busaras and mins to oconnell street. We stayed in a premium room and it was nice and modern with a small balcony. Rooms were clean, however small touches could make this average hotel great, Things like biscuits with the tea/coffee, different choices of tea/coffee,shampoo in the bathroom, better air con. Breakfast was Ok but addition of some more fruit and pastries would make it great. Doors etc could do with a lick of paint and concierge area didnt have much on display to promote Dublin. It seems like Im just nitpicking but its makes me a bit cross that small things could make and average hotel great!

I wish to have given this hotel a better rating as it was a beautiful hotel, great location, and had friendly staff but it had 2 drawbacks for me. One was the price of the internet - and then once we bought it it was painfully slow to the point that we had paid for our entire stay in internet and did not even end up using it. Second was that we also ordered room service on our last night and it was way overpriced and was barely edible. I would much more recommend the pizza place right around the corner of the hotel which has a 5 euro special and has great pizza. The hotel itself is in a fairly good location to walk around and see everything in Dublin.
