There was a quck three of us walked into the bar/coffee area behind the reception desk. The waiter was a charmer and really on the ball. A pleasant introduction to the hotel. For him nothing was a problem and he made sure we were well looked after and had all we needed. There was a top up or two. And... More

A perfect hotel in Dublin, Ireland. You are walking distance from Trinity College, many beautiful parks and a great pub across the street. The Hop On / Hop Off bus stop is 1 block away. We loved this hotel so much we stayed there at the beginning of our trip and again at the end of our vacation. Great location,... More

Stayed in hotel for 2 nights B&B! Paid premium rate in order to be in city centre! Hotel foyer and bar area were bleak! No atmosphere and bar was empty both nights! Bar layout didn't help! Furniture and decor in hotel are dated now and overall the place needs a good makeover! For over 200e per night I expected more... More

I don't have any serious complaints about this Hotel, but a little investment seems to be long overdue. The television in my room had to be the smallest I've even seen in a hotel, and the choice of channels was very basic. Some of the room furnishings were fine, but some should have been in a rubbish tip a long... More

Spacious room and bathroom, AC worked very well. Windows do an incredible job of soundproofing. The bed is very comfortable. The blankets were very hot, so bring your own sheet or perhaps hotel can provide lighter sheet/blanket. Convenient to all city center activities. Very pleased overall.

We stayed in this hotel on a room only basis thankfully. The location is excellent in terms of proximity to the city centre but the rooms and public areas are very disappointing especially as this hotel is quite expensive. Our room had curtains with missing rings very shoddy. Also the tv had flickering lines and a remote whose on/off button... More

We spent two nights here and we're very happy with the knowledgeable, friendly staff, the clean and comfortable rooms, and especially the location of the hotel. The Georgian district was a beautiful place to walk. Trinity College is about a block away. Grafton Street shopping amd St. Stephen's Green are more easily accessible places just a walk away.
