“Great location, a touch old fashioned”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The best thing about this hotel is the location, just off O'Connell St and with the LUAS tram right outside the door. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a great little old school bar. Downsides- rooms are a bit small (but thats to be expected in the city centre) and a bit old fashioned but I'm still in my 20's so like the more modern look. The food in the restaurant was sub standard- you really shouldn't be serving up bottled sweet chili sauce with lemon sole. I might not book again but that's more about my own personal taste.

Room Tip: Busy street/tram at front of hotel so request a room at the back if you want a peaceful sleep.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I flew from UK, and stayed here two nights for long-sought visit to the city and the Abbey Theatre, almost next door. My purpose was met more than adequately, with a clean and comfortable room (double at singles rate), and an excellent if rather noisy breakfast. Be warned that, like other hotels, they do not serve after-theatre meals. That situation is easily remedied by a short taxi-ride across the Liffey. O'Connell Street, with its large shops, is just around the corner

I stayed at this hotel in early December , the rooms are small but clean. At night I could hear noise coming from a party somewhere in the hotel but it was in the background and not loud enough to bother me but this might vary depending on your room location. The hotel is very well located a few minutes walk from the busy centre but what makes this hotel for me is the excellent and friendly service of all the staff.

Room whilst a little snug and sparce had comfy beds and pillows. Shower is a bit lame. Room and bathrooms all nicely clean.

Staff very good.

The lounges during the day were absolutely rammed with pensioners, is this an alternative day care for the elderly! The old fashioned oak paneling is also a bit of a turn off.

Breakfast was cooked to perfection, although I don't like the skinny sausages. I had fried eggs cooked perfectly and my friends poached eggs were also spot on.

However, this is where another "tradition" lets the place down. NO BAKED BEANS OR BROWN SAUCE, as "we don't so it." This I have come across before in establishments that consider themselves to be a cut above. Seems beans are a bit "common".

Lastly, they took £50 deposit per room on booking, AND the cancellation policy is about a week before you've booked, as long as you phone on the last Tuesday before the Popes birthday. (It's effectively 3 days, surely this place is not that in demand!)

I'll probably try elsewhere next time.

had a lovely stay in this hotel, went to a concert in the 02 where the luas picked us up and droped us off right outside the hotel. The rates for a hotel in such a great location are fantastic too. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had a wonderful room on the 5th floor which was only spoiled by the noise coming from the party downstairs and the street noise. To be totally fair we were told about the possibility of noise when we checked in, but I guess by then its too late to change your mind if you've booked and pre paid online. The restaurant staff at breakfast were overworked, and did not take time to listen to and check that they had correctly understood your order. Was surprised to see the waiter blew on the table cloth to remove the crumbs - hardly hygenic!
The location of the hotel was great, ideally situated for bus and tram.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floors to reduce noise from the function rooms and street
