Positive aspects of this hotel: location, the library bar (perfect to relax in, take a drink and have some nice food), the rooms are reasonably sized and clean, staff are friendly and it was surprisingly quiet at night (considering the location). Free wi-fi is also available and coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Iron is available on request (and it's a good one!).
Negative aspects (for business traveller): only liquid soap given as the toiletries, water pressure in the shower was a bit weak and it took a while to get hot water coming through, the breakfast was a good size but I've had better. The cooked breakfast seemed like it was pre-made and kept warm (hard scrambled egg, poor quality sausage) there was a limited choice of cereals and fruit, no fresh bread or yoghurt and mediocre tea. For 10 Euros and the quality offered I recommend going out for breakfast.
However, these two things are the only negative aspects of this hotel and I recommend staying for a week-end break or a short business trip if you want to go out and see Dublin. The location is ideal.
