“Better than a regular hotel room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Good location, just around the corner from several hop on hop off bus stops. A 5 minute walk from the airport bus stop. Having two bedrooms and a living area with kitchen made our stay for family of four much better than a family hotel room for about the same cost, or two hotels rooms for a greater cost. Small rooms and beds, furniture a little worn but overall the apt was clean and functional. They do expect you to leave the dishes washed and put away but we had to rewash glasses upon arrival as the previous renters did not put much effort in cleaning them. The service was excellent and when we did have some problems (washing machine would not work) someone was sent up immediately to make repairs. All the young people working the front desk were helpful and polite. Traffic noise at night from the busy street was the only negative.

Room Tip: Traffic noise throughout the night if your windows face the busy street.

We have stayed at this property twice now and while there have been some renovations since the last time we stayed (Oct. 2011) one thing remains the same, the street noise can make it difficult to sleep. The location is great in that it is just a few blocks from Temple Bar and a few more in the opposite direction of the Guinness Brewery and Jameson Distillery. There are a few convenient stores located within the block and there is gated parking available. Beds are moderately comfortable but the pillows are terrible and the rooms can get very stuffy. Our shower head did not stay on the wall and the water pressure is not great. Also, the available cooking supplies were of poor quality and we didn't have basics like a cutting board or any knives other than a butter knife or spatula.

Stumbled across this by accident on the internet. Brilliant value for a group sharing. We could tell from the ad that it was furnished with mod cons. but were a bit dubious about the size the apartment would turn out to be. Got up there and was very pleasantly surprised. The apartment was brilliant, had everything, spacious, modern etc etc. Would be perfect for a girls weekend away or a stag/hen. Location is very central, although is apparently close enough to a rough area. There is no need to worry there is No chance of anyone dodgy getting in, someone mans the desks 24hours a day and you have to ring the bell to be allowed in by them. Its near dublinia, dublin castle etc for those interested in sight seeing and on the doorstep of pubs, takeaways and clubs for those interested in going out. Would highly highly recommend! Price cant be beaten! Especially in comparison with nearby hotels!

Indeed, very good location. The hotel is basic but is near the best places to be visit. Flat is good but Wifi didnt work at all.Even after we have complaint about. When we arrived we noticed that they havent clean the bins. I think we payed a lot for what we get.

The only very good thing about these apartments is the location. You are practically in the heart of Dublin, in a very good zone and just a few minutes' walk from Temple Bar and River Liffey. Unfortunately maintenance to the building and the apartment appliances is very poor. Some kitchen utensils are not correctly washed, the lock on the apartment door needs oiling since 1863 and the bathroom could definitely be renovated to some decent heating switches and a decent shower curtain.
Beds are quite comfortable, but that is totally up to the guest's opinion, and the kitchen is fully equipped with stove, oven, dishwasher and even a washing machine.
The apartments are an overall good deal if you are not very fuzzy about perfect tidiness.

Room Tip: I was staying at appt. 24, maybe some other one is not that forgotten of.

I was in Dublin on business in May for 3 nights, most hotels wanted €125+/nt and I booked a single room apartment for only €69.00/nt taking a chance expecting the worst. The hotel is basic but for the money spent it was great. The shower is a little heath robinson in ohow it works but it was clean and there was clean towels and some amenities added. This apartment had a kitchen with everything you needed and again was clean. Living room/Dining room was great as you had room to move around. You could also order in food so another possible saving. Overall a great deal, helpful staff and a short walk to Grafton St.

I was able to walk all around town and see everything on foot or I could jump on the bus a block away. The apartment itself has a well equipped kitchen and is decently furnished. The TV only seems to get one channel. The bathroom doesn't have much hot water and the lighting is poor if you want to use the mirror for anything other than brushing your hair or cleaning your teeth.The mattress was very old and needed upgrading. For an inexpensive place to stay where your are self contained this is a good bargain. The y.staff were friendly but changed each da

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor and off the street if you need a quiet place to sleep

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The location is indeed an ideal base for exploring the city. We hope you enjoyed all our little city has to offer.

Should you stay with us again in the future, it is useful to note that we have an onsite maintenance person who can assist with matters such as these. Here at staycity.com/Dublin we strive to provide the best possible customer experience so feedback is an essential part of this process! We hope to welcome you back in the future.

Yours sincerely
