The room was towards a backyard and faced a wall, but because of that it was absolutely silent. Neither did we hear any sounds from the neighbouring rooms. We paid...

Can't fault the location and ease of walking to local attractions and popular areas. Booked the small double room which was very good value. Staff were friendly and breakfast deal was good for the variety on offer. The Airlink Express bus to Dublin airport stops right across from the front door.

The rooms was small compared to American rooms but it was very nice for the price. The staff was professional and friendly. If I come back to Dublin I would likely come back here. It is centrally located near all the tour buses and other pick ups.

Bathroom was like on a cruise ship, even though small, I didn't need anything bigger due to length of my...

Loved this hotel and would stay again. It was close to stop 1 of the red hop on hop off buses. The price was reasonable. The beds were very comfortable and it was a central location near the shops. The breakfast was plentiful and fine. Would recommend for a sight seeing stay

Am writing this just after one night, central location, temple bar within walking distance, sightseeing buses stop outside. Rooms are snug, but warm and comfy, nice hot shower, comfy beds, perfect place to stay for a Dublin sightseeing trip.

Me and my partner visited Dublin last weekend for an over night stay. This hotel was one of the cheapest I found on a hotel comparison site (still not cheap but one of the cheapest) so I wasn't expecting the world. I've got to be honest the hotel doesn't look amazing from the outside but when you get inside its...
