Stayed for 5 nights over New Year. The only positive things to note about this hotel are the location and the staff at breakfast. Its in a great location at the top of O'Connell Street but is severely let down by the shabby interior and terrible rooms.
Our room was very small and a very odd shape, with a wardrobe that was so small it could only hold 5 coathangers. There was no room for drawer space either! Our duvet cover was torn and the dust hung on the walls.
No safe in the room. Dont be fooled by the photographs they were obviously taken some time ago and the rooms we saw were definately not to the same standard.
There are many hotels in this area and we will definately choose another on our next trip to Dublin.
