“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff helpful, location is good and the rooms are kept very clean. If in was to never return to Dublin wouldn't have any problems staying here again. You can walk into the main centre in around 15 minutes so ideal for exploring

My colleagues and I stayed here on a large business trip. We arrived in the afternoon and were met by very friendly and helpful staff who helped us take care of a few administrative chores at the small but effective business centre. I checked into my room and found it clean, well appointed and spacious. We met at the hotel bar around 1930 and enjoyed attentive service and reasonably priced drinks for an hour. The star was the snack mix (I think it is bespoke) that they kept the tables stocked with.

The bed was very comfortable and I slept extremely well. The shower had good pressure in the morning and the selection of complementary toiletries was better than usual. I had a very good Full Irish Breakfast in the morning at a reasonable rate and the staff were once again helpful and pleasant on checkout.

The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the centre of town, but I think it probably makes sense to take a taxi given the number of "youths" in some of the areas adjacent to the hotel, especially if a group consists of mostly women. The hotel can't really don't much about this, but I think it is worth noting. I'd also mention that the T.V. in the room was a bit smaller than average, though I didn't even turn it one.

This was quite a nice hotel, and if there were a match on at Croke Park would be an excellent location. The only reason that this didn't get 5 stars is because my expectations have recently been stretched and reset by a stay at a Crowne Plaza hotel.

Don't be fooled by the public area appearance, the rooms are less impressive than the lobby. Both single and double bed were hard and rigid. Pillows were thin and ended up hurting my neck. Single bed covers were on tighter than a drum head skin. Single bed moved around as it was of a light construction and on roller wheels that did not have locks. Sat on it and it moved out from under me. Laid on it with my back against the headboard and it rolled out from under me. The soloution, send concierge to the room with large styrofoam cardboard covered coffee cups and cut them down to fit under the wheels and against the bed.

Room lighting was inconsitant. Different lamps in side table lights and a oversized bulb in floor lamp side fixture. TV was not color corrected properly and dark in contrast.

Bistro dinner service was nice and the chef accomodated and came up with a nice plate of food for a member of the family with food allergies. Breakfast was nice, but fruit was to young and still green and hard on some of the mellons. Hasbrowns (potatoe triangles) were soggy and you could still see the oil in them from frying. (tip to staff: another place I stayed at used white bread to rest the hashbrowns on which absorbed the oil and some of the steam vapor leaving them crisper than yours)

Staff is friendly and acoomodating in their standard service roles.

This is the first review I have made. I booked this hotel based on the good reviews in this site.

I was surprised though how many hen night and stag parties there were, there was a large singing hen party at dinner and it is aimed for more 18-30 party goers
I didn't get any sleep I asked for a quiet room but was put next to a young Eastern European group of lads who kept me awake most of the night .. when I did drop off I was woken at 4 by someone loudly being sick !

When I looked in my mini bar for some soft drink refreshments I had none, when I checked I was missing most of it I thought it was odd I had alcohol but only water to accompany it.


When I mentioned this to the hotel staff they were not overly concerned ..

So this hotel is ok if you are in Dublin for a party time. I think the good reviews on here are over generous to this hotel and people must have not been to a genuinely good hotel !

A very nice motel with all the mod cons. We were part of a tour group and spent our last night there. The rooms were large and clean, staff were courteous and professional. The food was fine.
There was nothing overly spectacular or otherwise, it was just a nice hotel in a big city.

Myself and my family had an excellent however brief overnight stay following our daughters 21st birthday party in Dublin City Center.The staff were most helpfull at check-in and efficiently processed same even though it was getting late at night. The bar staff were most helpful in facilitating some late night drinks which crowned the night off in a most enjoyable fashion.
There was a bit of drama next morning when my son realised that he had left his school uniform in the lift the prev night and needed it to go to school in Navan -however with envaluable assistance from reception staff it was handed back at 8am in time for departure .In all the experience was excellent and we departed with full bellies from the harty breakfast that morning.
