Fantastic location and great room size, loved being in the centre of everything and would defiantly go back! Make sure you have a walk around the cobbled streets and get lost in Dublin great place. A must is the Guinness factory as well, find out how it's made and then have a glass at a fantastic glass room/bar at the top! Even if your not a fan of Guinness it's still worth the trip to the bar in the roof

My friends & myself got a cheap deal for a city break to Dublin & this was the hotel included. Wasnt too sure what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised.

Fantastic location, As it's on Fleet street, temple bar its right next to all the pubs, clubs and restaurants. Main shopping area only a 10 minute walk away and bus stops, tours and museaums.

The staff are very friendly and accomadating. Even brought a fan to our room one night when it was quite warm. The rooms were lovely, very clean and all the facilities you'd need.

One small issue was the noise as our room was right at the front of the hotel. I had ear plugs with me anyway so didnt hear it much but if you are a light sleeper i sudgest asking for a room at the back of the hotel.

The bed was extremely comfortable.

Can't rate this hotel enough. Will be coming back next year with my parents in tow!

The Hotel is situated right in the temple bar area, surrounded by many cafes, restaurants, clubs and Tesco is opposite to it. Ideal location for tourists. Air coach station is just round the corner.

The room is of reasonable size, basic and adequate. It can be noisy as one can hear disco music at night and truck clearing beer bottles early in the morning. I'm tolerant in terms of noise level hence I found it okay. If you are easily disturbed by noise, temple bar is not an area for you.

Graffton Street (where the shops are) is about 5-10 mins walk. Trinity College Dublin and various museums are all within walking distance.

Hotel staff are generally nice and helpful. Wifi is free and at good speed. No complaint about this.

We did not try the hotel breakfast as there are plenty of choices around. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel had a restaurant downstairs which serves breakfast in the A.M. Right next door was a restaurant and with a pub - you can sit in doors or outdoors. The location could not be better from the tours, like the Dublin Castle/Christchurch Cathedral tours. Hard Rock Cafe is also a few steps down the road on the same Fleet Street. The train line we used to get to Belfast was less than one mile frm the hotel. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. The internet in the rooms worked great and was wireless. There are plenty of shops around the hotel for getting souvenirs, and also a grocery literally RIGHT across the street. Definately recommended.

I loved the location because of the quaint circle it forms around Temerity bar. The people were very welcoming and I was able to walk everywhere without feeling u safe and knowing my way back in foot. They had.an awesome buffet breakfest every morning and great restuarants near by . It was by far my favorite place in Dublin.

This is a superb hotel located within the heart of the city. All buses go from the end of the street 100 metres. Attractions within walking distance. City bicycles for hire at end of street.
Room nice size, clean and well equipped. Safe did not work, maintenance fixed within minutes. Staff on arrival very well trained and welcoming.
Fantastic for a city break.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back of the hotel.

This hotel was beautiful and centrally located. I was very pleased with the lobby, the breakfast, the room, and the service. I blew a fuse in the room and maintenance came to fix it immediately. The hotel is located right across from a parking garage, in which they give youa discounted rate for so it's great if you have a car with you. My only complaint would be the noise level. This hotel is right on Fleet Street in Temple Bar, which is a very rowdy area at night. Our room was in the back of the hotel so I thought we would avoid noise issues, however, our window was in an alley way. The noise from the main street traveled down the alley. I had trouble sleeping all night as I heard the partying noise outside, drunk people yelling and singing, and bar owners dumping bottles into a dumpster all night. I would recommend this hotel based on location and it's interior, however, I would ask for a room facing the courtyard. You wont get a view, but you will sleep much better.
