The hotel is indeed cheap but I think I'd rather spend more money staying in a better place. Honestly, the four star review for this hotel is the biggest misleading review I've ever encountered. The hotel is indeed in a very good location. The lobby is nice. It's near the bus stop for transport to the airport as well as the bus tours. However, the rest are not good. Our room was very small, cramped and poorly laid out. Decors are very outdated. There were only 2 outlets to plug in our electronic gadgets. The towels are small and thin. Our room's window was facing this big open center area which faces other people's window. We asked to be moved to a room facing the street. Instead, we were given a room facing an alleyway with dumpsters. We didn't have a luggage stand so I called the front desk to ask for one. The front desk person told me without even checking that they are fully booked so they may not find any but she will check. I never heard back from anybody. The room was quiet but the bed was not very comfortable. The shower door does not completely close so it was flooding the bathroom with water. They also do not provide shampoo, conditioner and lotion. There is a broken handwash soap dispenser near the sink and there is a body wash dispenser in the shower. It is not a non-smoking hotel. Lastly, the internet is free but the connection is slow and spotty. It was my first time in Dublin and I wish I booked a different hotel.
