First off for anyone who has booked this hotel and is being extremely put off by other reviews My Place is not that bad! There is a clear differentiation between the hotel and the hostel, areas such as the reception and lobby are however shared by both sets of guest. On arrival to Dublin My Place was easy to find the location is good just off one of the main streets, it is not however the nicer end of town a bit run down this however can not really be helped. I stayed in Dublin with two of my girl friends for a sort city break, check into the hotel was easy and the man behind reception was extremely helpful. When we entered our room we were not so impressed, - the room was like an oven as we were in what i assumed used to be the loft with only a small dirty window, the rooms smelt of sewage from a leak which had also caused a lot of mold in the room. The room was relatively clean and bed was ok (what I expected from this hotel). I felt undersold as when booking the hotel the rooms looked completely different even on there own website, when going down to reception the receptionist knew I was going to complain about the room even before I spoke. On telling him what I was unhappy about he stated that the hotel has standard and superior rooms both for the same room rate and that it was luck of the draw if you got a horrible or a nice room. I had never herd of something so ridiculous charging the same price and not stating this when you book the hotel. The hotel was fully booked for the Saturday night so there was very little that he could of done he resolved what he could for us and transferred us to a superior room for the second night. This room was like staying in a different hotel, modern light and airy (what was expected really). The only down side being these rooms are nearer the hostel accommodation which meant it was quite noisy at night you could hear doors opening and closing. Do not be put off by this hotel if you get a superior room for a good price in the center of Dublin then I do not believe that you will have any problems.
