I was looking for a good value hotel for pre-business stay in Dublin. I found it. This hotel is a good value, but you do give up a bit. The view is a brick wall, the room is tight but livable. No amenties (Dove liquid soap, but container was empty in the shower). Location is awesome, you can get everywhere with a walk including for my morning Starbucks. The place is clean. The front desk is super friendly and helpful and they have an ice machine, a nice thing for American visitors.
Free newspaper. TV has FoxSports and Star, nothing else and reception had snow. Internet is free which is awesome. The WIFI in my room at end of hallway, was poor. I had to either hang on my door or go to hallway under router for my phone. PC worked better. Still free and it did work, location of room will make a difference. I booked via Hotels.com. I think you will get the no view/wall/ small out of the way room for this price/deal. No soundproofing on walls, so get bring white noise/ear plugs and I had to change rooms once because the noise/party was way too out of control. They had no problem changing my room to another against the wall no view smallish room. OK, you get what you pay for. Still nice stay, good location, clean and friendly.
