I stayed here with colleagues for 3 nights for a conference at Trinity, so just wanted something cheap to come back to at the end of each night that was relatively close to the Uni. If we had spent ANY free time in the place it would have been too much- we left around 8-9am and were back after midnight... More

I took my friend here for her birthday and it absolutely ruined it. We turned up and our room wasn't ready and they expected us to leave our bags just behind the front door where any of the hotel guests could access them. Upon entering the lady at the desk was rude and didn't even walk over to greet us.... More

I was so disappointed in the condition of this "B&B"! The closest toilet was two floors away, the mattress was in rough shape, our window was broken and wouldn't close so we had traffic noise all night. The carpet on the stairs is worn and smelly. The parking was a ten minute walk away and wasn't free. The city was... More

We stayed here 2 nights with 6 days in between, because we were on a hiking trip outside Dublin, and needed a place in the city in the beginning and end of our trip. The rooms ver very small, and there are no furniture just the bed, a sink and a shower cabin leaving no privacy for showering if you... More

Rooms were small and dated but the bedding and towels were clean.. we only stayed two nights and was out most of the time so was shocked when we came back and... More

The Avondale is a basic hotel, in need of some TLC. The price is aimed more on the budget end of the scale making it ideal for a short stay in Dublin when you just want somewhere to lay your head for a couple of nights. Location is good with a bus stop just over the road that links direct... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The airport bus stops outside and it is only a five minute walk to O'Connell Street and ten minutes to Temple Bar. Our twinbed room had no furniture except two comfortable beds, but we also had a small shower cabin and a basin - the toilet was on the next floor.... More

Well how can I write this politely. Arrived to be met by a member of staff who wasn't even willing to walk to desk and just pointed to a space I could leave luggage. When I returned was given key to top floor and just a quick point to the stairs. So on the way up there was ripped carpets... More
