Pretty souless place, not very well maintained. Carpet has a lot of stains and is not vey clean. You can hear everything from the bedroom next door (TV, talks, etc). Service very average, complicated to have room service (I gave up). Personal a little abrupt. Will avoid next time.

This hotel is fabulously modern with a great atmosphere. The deal I got was bed and breakfast with a three course meal and an Eater cocktail for €120! Brilliant value, absolutely no restriction on the menu! The Thai restaurant is delicious and the breakfast was top class too. This hotel is also great as it is very close to Dundrum....

I loved this hotel! It's very quirky style wise. Beds very comfortable, rooms spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a great choice of food for breakfast. It's out from the centre of the city but close to Dundrum Shopping Centre.
