Reviewed February 25, 2013

Title really says most of it. We were a group of friends and could find no fault with this hotel. We were in rooms probably due for refurbishment,and at the low price we paid we were still well pleased. The rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. DART station opposite and the bus station a 3 minute walk.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room up a few floors where you will get a view.

Dear Disco100,

I am pleased to say our refurbishments are progressing exceptionally well and will be completed very shortly. On your next visit with us may I suggest that you enquire with a member of our team about our apartments which are ideal for accomodating for instance a group of friends. Thank you for taking the time to relay your feedback,

Kind regards,
Rhona.

This hotel was great. We stayed there the night we went to a concert in the O2 and it was great value, particularly with a special offer from a deals website. We were in a Premier room with the most comfortable bed I've slept in for a long time. However, some noise from the Dart could be heard in the morning. Breakfast was good. Despite te noise, I really enjoyed my stay and will be back :)

just back from staying 5 nights in North Star hotel. Had a lovely break in Dublin - plenty to see and do and this hotel is a great central base. Not far to walk to Temple Bar area and all major sites. Near to train station and bus station for easy links to other places. We caught coach to Cork three hours each way then caught local bus in Cork to visit Blarney Castle. Would recommend hotel. Kieran the concierge is a great character and very helpful. Didnt eat in hotel as so many other places to try but we did have drinks there and not expensive. Get hotel shuttle bus to and from airport for only 5 euros per person.

Room Tip: we had 165 on ground floor - near local train route but never disturbed us.

If your looking for something close to the city and you don't mind an oldish type hotel then this it. The room was fab albeit you could hear the dart and there was a bit of a weird smell. The breakfast was a big fry which was excellent when going to a match and/or recover from a night out

Had a wonderful weekend in Dublin and staying at the North Star was a great choice. Not far from Temple Bar and we even managed a leisurely stroll to the Guinness Storehouse from here quite easily. The hotel was very clean, breakfast was fabulous and the newly opened bar was beautiful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the upgrade to a suite was an unexpected surprise. Although the train station is across the road and there are trains running regularly we did not really notice them. We used the Paddy Wagon tour bus to the airport which was very efficient.
Would stay here again as it was good value for money. There is obvious refurbishment going on at the hotel at the moment and what has been completed up to now does do the hotel justice. Keep up all the good work!

I found the reception staff lovely and was greeted with smiles. After requesting a quiet room, I was given Room 350 which I was pleasantly surprised was at the very end of a corridor away from noise. Unfortunately I did not get any sleep due to the noise outside, the window was not sound proof, and I could even hear a lady walking by in high heels. I was extremely disappointed and extremely tired the next day! Beware and take your own hairdryer as I can honestly say it is the worst hairdresser I ever had to use in any hotel, I left with a very tired head and messy hair as was unable to dry it properly with the low heat... I ate in the residents lounge as they were doing renovations to the main bar, food was very average and lacked any variety for vegetarians. Though I have to mention the bar man was lovely and very hospitable. Would not stay here again due to being unable to get any sleep with the noise outside.

Room Tip: Dont pick room 350!

Stayed for one night and was very impressed. Doesn't look great from the outside but the inside is lovely, really surprised at how big the room was, all very clean and really comfy bed and modern bathroom. The staff are very friendly as helpful and the restaurant is quite good. The bar isn't great as it's a bit make-shift. The area is very handy for the central train and bus stations and fine for walking to the shopping area during the day although it's not a great area for walking around at night as it's a bit rough, and too long a walk to the pubs and clubs for girls wearing heels!

Room Tip: We stayed in the new 'premier suites', I don't know what the other rooms are like but ou...
