As with everything..the pictures looked a lot nicer on their web site and even on here. I will admit that I am extremely picky about cleaniness. We checked in and the street was right off the busy O'Connell street. We didn't hear any noise in our hotel though. The lobby is ok..but who cares about the lobby anyway. The check-in was early so we settled for an early check in to a smoking room. The hotel room was just ok in terms of cleaniness. The curtains and carpet had white stains all over the right side of the room. Quite gross. I didn't notice it until we came back to the room late that night. The bathroom was clean but there is only cheap hand soap & cheap shampoo/body wash combo in public bathroom type dispenser. The soap literally made our hands like sandpaper. Bring your own. The front desk is efficient if there is no crowds, really nice one on one service but during checkout I got really frustrated that they were allowing anyone to cut the lines and just helping whoever would be rude enough to walk right up while the rest of us waited..and waited. It was $67 so I guess I got what I paid for. Definitely a budget type hotel..not a luxurious hotel. Wouldn't stay again in a hurry.
