I was on business for three days in Dublin and decided to book somewhere near to Trinity College.
Because of its location in the lively Temple Bar, I was a bit nervous about staying in this hotel based on some of the reviews I had seen. However staff made every effort to accommodate me as I specifically requested an interior room which meant I was completely isolated from the street noise that some guests had complained bitterly of.
Unfortunately the noise from corridor and interior rooms was difficult to avoid because of the thin walls. I was treated to the amorous activities of my neighbours on the first night and the second night there was a group of lads staying who were partying in their room and coming in and out all night, slamming the doors. On the third night there was (i think) an medical emergency next door which caused a lot of coming and going so i did not get much sleep during my stay.
Having said this, everything else about the hotel was lovely. It has recently been refurbished to a good standard and the rooms were very clean, neat and spacious. Tea and coffee was provided but with no decaff options. There was a nice bathroom with Dove soap dispensers also and , crucially, hair dryers are provided!
All in all, I think it's a great hotel in an unbeatable location but you might want to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
