“Go somewhere else”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

A very cramped, tired, airless facility in a not so pleasant part of Dublin. Apart from this we had an issue following payment of account by credit card. Payment should have been taken out in Euros, the security deposit upon arrival was in Euros, however final payment was taken out in our country's currency at who knows what exchange rate and then converted to US$ which were also on our credit card and debited in US$.

When contacted and requested to credit this transaction and debit it for the amount owing in Euros our request was totally ignored. Needless to say we are totally unimpressed.

Our suggestion, spend a little more money and go somewhere with a bit more class

The location is great.A 5minute walk to O'connell Street and if using the Airbus the stop is very close tp/from the airport.Although the hotel is on a very busy street with bus stops right outside once you are inside the hotel the thick brick walls block out the noise.The hotel offers free wifi in all rooms but my room on the 5th floor ( room 506) could not pick up any wifi.They insisted it did work & would get the engineer to check it the next day.It was checked and it just was not working on that floor.Also as it was a very hot weekend being up high the room was very hot even with the window fully open.I was moved to room 105 on the ground floor.. Perfect wifi but it is right next to where the cars park in an alleyway so with a hot night & window open you could hear cars coming and going and doors slamming late at night and early in the morning.Also the cold tap on the bathroom sink did not function !
It does need some upgrading decor wise.
The breakfast was very good value as it was included.
The staff were extremely helpful throughout the stay but it does appear hit & miss as to what sort of room you get and if wifi is important in your room.

Room Tip: Roomw on the ground (1st floor) or second floor are better wifi reception and cooler on a hot summer...

We booked the family room at this hotel. This room is amazing, and very big. my children really enjoyed this room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had a beautiful big bathroom. The breakfast was very nice and lots to eat although the room is a but small. I will come back to this hotel and I recommend for families. One small problem was that car park was full and had to park in another car park.

We have just returned home from our stay at St George Hotel. The staff were all really helpful and we received great service from the minute we arrived until we left. We had a room overlooking the car park at the back of the hotel which we found to be quiet enough. The room was very comfortable and was definitely worth the money we paid. The room was cleaned each day and towels etc replaced with clean ones. The breakfast was good with a wide selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts as well as a hot breakfast menu. This hotel was in a great location within close walking distance to the centre. We will definitely be returning to this hotel the next time we visit Dublin. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for somewhere quiet in the centre of Dublin.

The whole experience with this hotel from start to finish was horrific. The staff were unfriendly and the room I booked was not the same room that was offered to us on arrival. no other options were offered. In addition there was no parking offered even though I had rang up and was told there was 'ample' parking which there wasn't. The room was unsatisfactory having to take a lift and then carry our heavy luggage up two flights of stairs after the lift. There wasn't one member of staff on hand to help us with our heavy luggage. The room wasn't particularly clean and the décor was very dated. NOTHING that was offered online was the same. I would not mind but we paid a considerable price for this room for a one night stay.The atmosphere was morbid and I will never be returning to this hotel again. I'm a totally dissatisfied customer.

Room Tip: Just don't stay here!!

Brilliant value for money and an excellent location for exploring the city. Close to the centre, shops, restaurants and bus stops to all the attractions and city tours. Clean, basic rooms with a nice breakfast.

Room Tip: We were lucky and had a room at the back, but I would imagine that rooms at the front may be noisy a...

We especially loved the location of this hotel. It included parking and breakfast. It was an easy walk to any location in Dublin. It wasn't the fanciest hotel but just perfect for someone who wants a room in an excellent location.
