Stayed overnight in Central hotel Dublin.Over-priced,small room,wardrobe met us as we entered the room.You may not enjoy a fully restful night /sleep disturbed by many people revelling outside and in nearby streets.OK we knew the price before we went,still much over-priced as are all hotels in this city.Will not return.Ambience and atmosphere nothing special.Price did not include breakfast.

This is a very affordable hotel, great value and great location. I would recommend this hotel siteseers. A pharmacy around the corner, shopping mall on block away, resturants abound. Temple bar Ha' Penny bridge are short walking distance. Love the ability to pub hop and have the hotel within walking distance. I did not use the reaturant. Only had one...

We stayed 2 nights (Thursday and Friday) for a family wedding. The location is great in the heart of the city - perfect for sightseeing and shopping. The room was comfortable with excellent wardrobe space and a good shower. The staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout. However, the noise from nearby pubs and clubs on both nights was intolerable,...

Stayed in Thai hotel over the bank holiday and absolutely loved it. The best thing is the location, we walked everywhere and it's about 10 second walk from temple bar and all the attractions. The room was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing was it was a little noisy,but you can't be so central and...

When you say location is everything, you are in the right place. Being right in the center of the action was really great. The hotel itself was comfortable, rooms were fairly clean and the staff was excellent. The only issue of concern I had was the street noise that we experienced over the weekend that lasted until the early morning....

We visited Dublin for the weekend, and the hotel was booked by a friend, and we didn't realise how good the location was until we got there. It was about 5 minutes walk away from the good bars and restaurants. The only problem I have, is that the noise is unreal if you actually wanted to sleep. I wear earplugs...

Friendly staff, clean rooms, a bit on the noisy side, efficient internet and, as in most not really recently built hotels, an insufficient number of plugs. My room had a very small writing desk, hence great for holidays or a short stay, but not good for some serious work. A touch, for the type of hotel, on the expensive side.

The location is perfect & staff nice enough & to be fair the bar is charming. However, the rooms are far too fired & beds old & uncomfortable. The room was clean but money needs to be spent to justify the rates charged .

Stayed here from Friday 7th - Sunday 9th April 2017 for my Brother's 40th Birthday do. The hotel is in an excellent location and as the name suggests was 'Central'. Upon arrival check-in was easy and the receptionists were helpful even though they didn't seem pleased. The room was clean on arrival and a decent size, I stopped in a...

I'll try to keep this short. I was here for a wedding last weekend. The couple picked the place as it was supposed to be a good late bar option. This turned out to be false. In general, some of the (male) staff were not only rude, but downright unhelpful and unwelcoming. I paid €200 to enjoy the wedding and...
