The hotel is in a good location just off O'Carroll street. The airport link bus stops right outside as do the Hop on-hop off buses, so very convenient. We had booked and prepaid for 4 nights in a standard room, but on check in we were offered an upgrade for a few euros a night more, which we accepted. (about 25 euros more a night I think). It was well worth it. The room was very spacious and very clean. The bed was also very comfortable. While it was overlooking the front of the hotel, we had absolutely no issue at all with noise and slept very well. Thoroughly recommend paying for this room. We had a evening meal at the restaurant downstairs and the food was good quality, though we had the restaurant to ourselves, with no one else eating there. The bar was comfortable and the bar staff very friendly. We would happily stay here again if we manage to get all the way from New Zealand to Dublin again.
