I was only in this hotel for an overnight stay while I was in Dublin for the night as a surprise visit and for the limited time I spent in this room I couldn't fault it.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The rooms are a bit small but nicely renovated and very clean. The location is superb and walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping, sightseeing, etc. There are a restaurant and a bar decorated in a cool industrial style. The breakfast included a continental buffet and you can pay a few euros extra to... More

Very clean, comfortable room. Staff very helpful and friendly. Oscar's bar served a lovely breakfast - I had continental and husband had full Irish. Both were delicious and a reasonable price. Took a while to find the hotel as we asked the bus driver to drop us at Templebar, which he did, but it was at the other end! However,... More

This was the perfect hotel for us to stay. Thank you again, Trip Advisors. It was in the trendy Temple Bar area but it was on a side street that was more quiet than others in the area. Sure you could hear the Cathedral bells but not all the noise from Dame Street. It was a very convenient location. The... More

Trying to find it was a chore. No place to park. Parking is blocks away and you drag your baggage down the street. Room was small and expensive. Tv sucks, had. Refrig. Nice staff. If you are driving in, pick something else, like Jury's. If you are coming to Dublin, bus in to the hotel and us the hop on... More

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at the end of May. The room was comfortable and the staff were helpful. The main selling point was the location as it is a short stroll to temple bar strip. Great stay, would consider this hotel for our next return trip.

Staff were friendly and helpful.. But the hotel appeared tired and in need of a renovation...we would not have paid such a high price for a hotel like this. Rooms were not cleaned well and beds were not made properly... Bear in mind there is no air conditioning if you're staying here in summer. Lastly, there is a lot of... More

If it wasn't for the noise from the hotel nightclub which went on till after midnight, I would rate this hotel higher. The first night was terrible, it was a Saturday and even though I had earplugs the noise from the nightclub kept me awake until it stopped. The next night wasn't so bad so maybe it's just Friday and... More
