Good quality hotel in Best Western franchise well situated. Rooms on small side but we'll appointed quality fittings and everything worked. The breakfast is also excellent. Although Dublin is a building site with tram track laying everywhere the work around the hotel was not too bad and we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet everything was. Another plus is that...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was similar to many other corporate hotels, but it was welcoming at the reception desk and the rooms were clean and tidy. We have a standard room with just a double bed and enough space to walk around it overlooking the ventilation shafts etc. It was comfortable despite this. The bathroom was clean and well equipped. For a... More

This is a great little hotel in the city center -- however, our room overlooked a great little pub that closed at 11 pm -- but the "Living Room" bar opened in the patio area from 11 pm - 3 am. And the band played on till 3 am! It was a pretty view in the day filled with beautiful... More

Stayed 1 night and couldn't have asked for more - lovely staff especially Jane from reservations and the team were very accommodating to ensure we had a great stay from arranging taxis to reserving bar areas for pre party drinks! Room was clean and had everything we needed. Location was perfect for such a short stay. Recommend

This is an excellent hotel in the heart of Dublin's main tourist area. Just off O'Connell Street, it avoids the noise without being too far from the action. Great quality. Excellent housekeeping and helpful staff. Air conditioning was a godsend! Only drawback, room a bit small.

This hotel is in a great location. It's just off O'Connell Street and about a 10 minute walk to Temple Bar. The airport bus dropped us just a few minutes walk away.
