I chose this hotel because it is directly on a bus route to the airport. Bus 16 or 41. Silly me, I forgot to take into account that Ireland is very Catholic and the buses basically don't run on Sunday. Man, I was almost in big trouble for getting back to the airport for my flight. Fortunately I still had... More

The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast variety was very good. Not the best location, its quite a walk from the city centre. The bed was nice and comfortable. Excellent hotel. Should we visit Dublin, we would definitely use it again.

Great hotel. Staff was very helpful. Super clean hotel lobby and room. Good food at bar. Easy location to catch buses downtown. The only downside is you can not make calls from your room. You must go to reception desk and request a phone to use. No air conditioning (Some days it got hot in room). No refrigerator in room.... More

On arrival the first thing we notice was the high standard of cleanliness. We were happy with the size of our room and interior. The simple personal touch of a bottle water and a snack in our room were greatly appreciated after our long late night flight. Hotel is within 15mins of the airport. The bus stop is located right...
