A group of us stayed here for a friends birthday weekend, good central location but overall was a bit disappointed with our stay. Triple room was very spacious but the double rooms were cramped. I know its a city centre hotel but bath was tiny. As we were a large group we had planned to have a few drinks in... More

We visited here on 23rd - 25th January. I booked through Trivago and Amoma. Upon arrival the very pleasant receptionist could not find out reservation, despite having both our names and the booking number. This wasn't a problem, and she created us a new booking and contacted the company we had booked through. We were allocated room 252, on the... More

The hotel is in a perfect location for Temple Bar without the crowds and outside is the bus stop for the tourist bus. The breakfast on the Saturday was really good and we had it in the main dining room. On the Sunday we had breakfast in the bar which was due to problems with the oven. We waited for... More

Hotel is in a good location but the parking facilities is a good 5 min walking distance, also if your Car Park ticket isn't validated at Reception on check-out, which I knew nothing of, instead of €12 for 24hrs it cost €40 for less than 12 hrs. Although this was later rectified by the Manager. Bath in rooms was fit... More

We stayed for one night only. It's a very good location. The rooms are comfortable and the staff were friendly. Bathroom is small but that's to be expected in city centre. We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on quality of food.

Very nice hotel near the temple bar area, st Stephens Green and restaurants (+800 m). Good rooms with big king size bed. Also very quiet for the location, because it's in front of a busy square. The breakfast is also good. Would definitely go back to this hotel when I go to Dublin again.

Great location, ideal if you are getting the bus from the airport. Lovely hotel and very friendly staff, good value for money. We had such a good weekend and this was a great base for our sight seeing trip. The hotel is not modern but very clean and our room had a great view across the city.

Myself and 4 friends stayed here for 2 nights over the new year period, a time when you'd expect it to be very expensive! However, my room cost £133 for 2 nights for a twin room with breakfast which I thought was an absolute bargain! The staff were all lovely and allowed me to check in early when I arrived... More

Hotel is in an ideal location, Close to Trinity and Grafton street. Room was large but very difficult to control the temp. Shower was very powerful but ranged from freezing one minute to getting third degrees burns the next. Breakfast was cooked to order but was very average at best. Maria on the front desk is a keeper though. Wonderful... More
