“NEVER STAY AT FRANKIES”
Reviewed October 28, 2004

The grottiest Dog Kennel I have ever had the misfortune of staying at, luckily it was only for one night. Stayed in Jan 2004 and would not wish this place on my worst enemy.

With any luck they will trip over some fresh linen and utilise it.

I was overcharged €5 euros, did not mention as I only hoped it was put to cleaning materials and a cleaner.

Excellent location, especially if you like to walk. Just a couple of blocks from the Green, of Grafton str... Excellent service. But ask for a room with a window on the back of the building: in the summer, some "happy" pedestrians have a tendency to shout in the street at night, between 1am and 2 am (pubs closure time). Not the Frankie's owners fault of course...

The location is good very close to the city centre and gay scene but the place itself is dark dingy completely overpriced, the rooms are small with paper thin walls that you allow you to hear everything going on in the next room, and the staff are just rude! the place itself looks cheap and tacky Your better off going to a 3 star hotel it’s cheaper. I stayed there one night and moved out the following day to a hotel.

Frankies is a small guest house which is situated up a small side st.
Despite its website saying so there is no parking. Electricity supply to the rooms is limited by a flip switch so dont go boiling a kettle with the tv on. The breakfasts are small and not that appetizing. In a small guest house you expect the host to be friendly but sadly Franky is both cold and aloof. Overall it was a disappointment.

Frankies Guesthouse in Camden Place Dublin, 2 Ireland exceeds expecations in many ways. The host(ess) know the city well and are able to provide good tips for getting around the area. It is located near Stephen's Green, Grafton Street, the city Centre and Temple Bar so getting around is easy - epsecially on foot. Breakfast is a full Irish hot one and is served graciously every morning. Knowlege of Dublin's gay night life is extensive. While the rooms are small and not en suite, the price cannot be beat at Euro48 for a single per night that includes breakfast. It is well worth the price.

Frankies is a dump. Stuck down a little side street, the pictures on their Website do not extend to the rest of the street wich is dirty and covered in Grafiti. The Rooms are like ridiculously small and bare. At 70 Euro a night this a total rip-off. It offers nothing to the gay traveller and Frankly you would be better off anywhere but Frankie's. P.S the staff are rude and seriously bad at their job.
