Stayed for one night and was surprised to find such a good value hotel in such a great location. Rooms were a bit jaded looking and the tv's need to be upgraded but other than that it was a fantastic hotel. If you want a good valued hotel that gives you a bed for the night and great location look no further. There is a pub under you so expect noise but if you are in Dublin you need to be out for the nightlife.

Great Location, kind and helpful staff, good breakfast! I spent 2 day there and will surely return to this hotel! value for money is the best ever!
PS - here we talk about Temple Bar District and a hotel with a Pud under the rooms, it's quite clearly explaned on the website, if you don't like this combitation just don't complain after having staying!

Room Tip: as there is a pub under, if you'd like to have some sleep ask rooms from 3rd floor, but I don...

Literally one of the worst places I've ever seen in my life. I booked a room for my brother for one night. Should have read other reviews first because it was terrible. Here's a few things about it

1. Door in room did not open correctly on arrival
2. Tiles broken in the bathroom.
3. Horrible black scum in shower
4. Valance on bottom of bed was filthy dirty.
5. Asked for a non smoking room, room stunk of smoke.
6. Drawers in room had marks on them
7. Bed was extremely uncomfortable, had springs coming out of it.

My brother had one of the most uncomfortable nights of his life here. Never again.

Room Tip: Just pick somewhere else completly. Not worth it for the price.

I lucked out as I was at the back of the hotel. So even though it was after a football match the noise on the street was not unbearable. I had a good night sleep. The room was so-so. It was kind of tight.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back of the hotel. The staff is friendly.

The hotel is what it is. Its right in Temple Bar however its a dump. Dated, dirty and not worth what they charge a night. The staff was friendly/helpful however the hotel quality is really poor. It is noise however that's what you should expect in the Temple Bar Area. Other than it being right in the middle of the action it was the worst hotel we stayed in. Time for some renovations!

I stayed here a few nights as it was good value for a city centre hotel. The staff at reception were friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is on the edge of Temple Bar in a good location opposite the Irish Film Institute. The room i had was tiny but the bathroom was spacious and the shower was good. The hotel needs a complete refurb as evidenced by the chipped paint, grubby carpets, unpainted grubby bedroom doors and chipped tiles in the bathroom. The noise levels in the hotel are high as it has an in house club open seven nights a week from 9.00. The hotel website suggests a car park at Jervis Street across the river. A much better option is the underground car park nearby at Drury Street at a very reasonable 5 euro for overnight stay in a locked up car park.
