The room was tiny, the balcony led to a very dirty courtyard, there was noise from a motor or something all day AND night, and the breakfast wasn't good at all... Onli advantage: It's directly at an Air link Bus station. This place is just too expensive for what it is....

This place is not great, but is ok for a decent stay in the center. You are 10-15 min walk from city center. The street the hotel is on is know for its many hostels, and the atmosphere at night feels a bit on the unsafe side. We did not experience anything worrying but my wife did not like to... More

Parking here, is a nightmare. We had to park about a 10 minute walk away, not ideal when you're dragging your luggage with you!! The guy in the parking office, told us to ask reception for a parking voucher, so at least we got it for 12.50 euros, instead of 25.00 euros daily, and it was a secured site. When... More

This is in a great location, right opposite the Airlink bus stop is the first bonus next to town centre! Staff were friendly right from the start. when we got to the room it was more spacious than we thought and had a nice looking bathroom with plenty of towels changed daily. Beds were quite nice and the room clean.... More

The location was central enough, Airlink (airport bus) stop right out front. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but the beds were very thin and uncomfortable and even though the rooms were clean (although mine smelt like stale cigarettes), they felt very tired. Cracked tiles in the bathrooms, worn carpets, cold lighting etc.

Stayed here recently with my brother as we were attending a show at the 3 arena. In the two phone calls I made prior to my stay I found that the receptionists were very brief and unenthusiastic. Upon arriving I was given my key and told the general direction of my room, I was not guided there as I had... More

Stayed for St. Patrick day. Ideal place to stay for this as it was very central to everywhere and walking distance to temple bar. Clean and tidy, beds made up every day and fresh towels every day. Staff were good. Breakfast could have been a bit better - there could have been a bit more on the plate but it... More
