stayed here again in December as location suited our group for nightlife. This hotel is bascially a budget hotel so we were able to get a twin room at the back for about €50 which is really a bargain price for the centre of dublin! We had been warned that there may be noise from the near by smoking area but it didnt bother us as we were heading out for a late night ourselves and to be honest we couldnt really here much from it, most noise came from staff sorting the bottles at the back.
For young people travelling to dublin for the nightlife this is really in a great area as there are loads of clubs nearby that the locals actually go to as opposed to the overpriced tourist trap of temple bar. There are also a number of restaurants near by and I had very reasonably priced dinner in Litte Caesars which is next door to the hotel.
The hotel is literally around the corner from the Luas which would bring you straight into st stephens green and the top of grafton street (10 min walk from temple bar and georges street area.) There is no car park with this hotel but on street parking is generally free after 7 on saturday until monday morning.
The rooms were quite small and the beds were not the most comfortable but they served their purpose. Decor was a bit dated, in particular the curtains! Bathroom was clean with a good shower, although probably could do with throwing in an extra roll of toilet roll.
We were able to bring our own drink to the room and the security guy at the door even helped my friend locate a bottle opener for his own bottle of wine. The rooms were smoking rooms as well which also suited us as many hotels no longer offer this option. Although for some reason the only cigarettes that were sold in the hotel were ones I had never heard of.. couldnt understand this.
Staff were also helpful when I called to try and locate a set of lost keys.
Unfortunately we could not get broadband in our room. Was advised that wifi only available in the lobby.
Overall this hotel is clean, in a good location and cheap. You get what you pay for. If you want more comfort you have to be prepared to pay considerably higher prices.
