For the price we paid we expected better. The room was tiny but very clean but didn't look very luxurious. the staff were very nice and the food was decent and reasonably priced. I could hear the people in the next room at it. When we came downstairs in the morning there was a homeless man asleep on the sofa in the lobby. I can't see myself going back there.

This was the last hotel I stayed in and compared to the others it was by far the worst. The staff was nice and helpful. The location isn't too bad. It's basically at the end of O'Connell St. This can be a far walk back to the hotel if you plan on doing a lot of drinking in the Temple Bar area. The walls are paper thin. I could literally here the people on both side of me using the restroom. BAD! I guess I'm just thankful that and mumbled conversations is all I had to listen too. There are much better places to stay in Dublin. Look around and use this as a last resort.

6 guys over for some serious drinking for a week - well looked after by the staff. Had some great 'discussions' in the bar after a few
