“overall very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

it was a last minute booking, so receptionist didnt have any information on our booking, at first i found the gentlemen behind the desk very cold and unfriendly( i work in a five star hotel so would notice these small details) after parking the car in the underground car park, which i would highly recommend because the area itself does not seem to be the safest to park your car out in the open.

after the information came up on the computer, we were upgraded to a suite on the sixth floor, the view amazing along with cleanliness of the room along with the amenities(iron, tea and coffee, hairdryer and extra pillows.

after this we found our receptionist very friendly and happily called us a taxi to drive us to temple bar, i wouldnt have liked to of walked at that hour and also i didn't know my way around dublin.

overall the hotel itself was well equipped, friendly staff, clean rooms and very secure and safe .e.g. you need your room key to operate the lifts to and from room floors.

Room Tip: a high room so you can enjoy the city views, dublin has to offer

This is a nice Hotel, slightly outside the city center but still within walking distance (15-20 minutes to Temple Bar).

Rooms are large, well decorated and recently renovated. Soundproofing is good (though not perfect), and many rooms face a quiet pedestrian area. Bed linen is good. Very confortable stay, very confortable sleep.

Internet is free and of decent quality. Rooms are well equipped (including coffee/tea and an iron). The only thing I missed was a room safe.

The lobby areas are nice and reasonably large. Checkin and checkout were friendly and efficient.

Price/quality ratio was good, for Dublin standards.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pedestrian area have a nicer view.

It's quite close to the central shopping district (o'connell street), anyway really easily reacheble using LUAS (tram), that stops about 50 meters from the hotel entrance.
Rooms are big and clean and also the bathroom is spacious.
Reception is 24h and it also offer a pretty good breakfast that can be improved; specially 'cause there's no cakes or pastry selection (just empty croissants), and if like me you're used to have cappuccino and a pastry for breakfast, you can't definitely choose.

There's also a restaurant serving lunch and dinner but I didn't try it yet.
There's a park in front and also a 24h big covered one where hotel's customers can have a discount.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were spacious and clean It was well priced, centrally located. I am so happy that I booked this hotel. Rooms were very nice, tastefully decorated and quiet. We also had a balcony looking over the square. The metro tram is just a short walk away, a grocery store is located right next door. Jameson's Distillery is a walk across the square. I recommend Christophe's restaurant for breakfast and lunch that is located right next to Jameson's less than a 3 minutes walk away. We would definitely stay here the next time we travel to Dublin. Ate in the restaurant twice and enjoyed the fish and chips.

I think this hotel is very well priced. It is clean with good spacious rooms and is handy to get to not here s parking. Great spot for going to gigs in vicar street. Do not expect anything to special just a decent spot for a bed. Not too far from temple bar. 10-15 min walk.
