Staff - not as friendly as reviews claimed. First room given, was freezing, tiny and awkward. The staff did listen to our concern and changed to a much better room.
Room - walls are very thin - you can hear everything - specially hallway. Don't plan to sleep in.
Distance - about 20+ min walk (moderate speed) to temple bar etc
Restaurant - food is not great and over priced (as every hotel) but has very homey interior and just for that have a drink there one night when you're tired.
If you are not planning to sleep in or hang out in hotel, don't mind bit of a walk and don't want to spend a fortune - this hotel will do the trick.
