This is a good serviced apartment, a few hundred meters from Temple Bar, yet located in a quiet area.
The apartment was clean and well maintained, despite some natural wear signs. It was serviced every day (cleaning, fresh towels, bedroom linen). Check-in/check-out was quick, efficient and friendly, but you must keep in mind it is a 5 minute walk from check-in location to the apartments.
The apartment had 2 small but comfortable bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with 2 beds. The kitchen/living room space had enough amenities and kitchen ware, as well as a large LCD screen (with a small number of international channels, though). The bathroom was renovated and heated.
On the negative side I must mention the lack of safe (even though the area looks safe). You may also hear some noise from other apartments, but not more than in most Hotel rooms.
Overall this is a very comfortable stay for a family with 1-2 small children. It is not an upscale apartment and lacks some "spark" in furnishing and decoration, but everything is comfortable and well appointed.
The price I paid was on pair (or even slightly above) a 3-4 star Hotel room. Nonetheless, this is a competitive price if you are traveling with family and/or intend to prepare some meals.
