Reviewed July 11, 2012

Stayed here June 2012 for one night. It was good value for money considering what some of the other hotels in this were charging. The room was compact and basic but it did have a nice flat screen tv and tea/coffee making facilities which was unexpected but very welcome. The bedding and towels were spotlessly clean. Noise from the street below (it's on a very busy road) meant we had to sleep with the window shut - it must get stuffy in here during the summer as I did not see air con in the room. The on-site basement disco is very noisy as you would expect and the hotel needs to improve the sound proofing. Our room was on the first floor and we didn't get any sleep until the late night disco closed. Great place if you want to party all night! The hotel has a lift/elevator which was handy but there are then some internal steps on the first floor where we stayed - a pain with heavy suitcases and me on crutches. Breakfast was more than ample and piping hot. This hotel is in a great central location - 2 minutes from the Temple Bar area and a 5 minute walk to O'Connell Street.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor to get away from the basement disco

I stayed at this hotel in June 2012 with my boyfriend. The hotel is in a great location, one block from Temple Bar and two from Grafton Street. Lots of bars and pubs within walking distance. The room we stayed in (double on 3rd floor) was on the small side but had a large bathroom, which was quite nice with a deep tub. My only complaints about the hotel are only that the room was slightly hot (probably due to the unseasonably warm weather during our stay) and that it was a loud at night. The hotel provided ear plugs for combat the noise. The hotel also had fast, free internet and a small elevator. Overall, I think this hotel is a great value for the price, but you are getting what you pay for. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The top floors are quieter than the lower floors.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights a few days ago. The bar food was decent and the recpetion staff were really nice. Our room was perhaps a little small - actually, I imagine it was spacious by European standards - but it was clean and nice inside.

Unfortunately, it was really hot when we stayed in Dublin; it was unbearable with the windows closed. And it was really noisy outside at all hours of the day, so we had to make the choice between dealing with the noise or the heat. Sleeping was somewhat of a challenge.

I'd think twice about staying here again. If I did stay again, I'd probably do as another reviwer recommended and ask to stay in one of the rooms at the back - well away from the noisy street.

Definitely for the younguns. In the heart of the Temple Bar district. Lots of college students around, and music well into the night. Fantastic place for young people, but I needed to sleep! Oh, and Bridget, the receptionist, was wonderful and accommodating. Trinity Bar, which can be accessed from the front lobby of the hotel, is wonderful. Very sexy place with good food.

Room Tip: Need a good night's sleep? High floor, back side of the hotel. Otherwise, bring 32 decibel ear...

Every time I'm in Dublin I stay at the Dublin Citi Hotel. It can't be beaten for its great value and in a really central location on Dame Street - Beside Temple Bar and right in the thick of Dublin nightlife.

The rooms are small but really clean and the staff can not do enough for the guests. Plus, and it's a big PLUS, the Citi represents the best value around by a long shot.

The food in the downstairs bar is always great and with a huge choice. If it's entertainment you're after, the bar also hosts live music most nights and I believe there's even a nightclub, but I've never been, and never heard it from my room if there is.

If you're a light sleeper ask for a room at the rear as the location is so central and Dublin tends to stay awake late, but I've never had a problem.

I have no problem recommending the Cit to anyone who's looking for a clean and friendly hotel in a great location and at great prices.

I recently booked this hotel for six nights, but within a few hours realized that we were not going to get any sleep if we stayed here. Our room faced Dame Street in the "lively" Temple Bar area, and we were two floors above the inn's live-music bar....this is all great if you are a late-night party animal, but not so great for those who like to get to bed early and get up early. We cancelled our next five nights and moved hotels.The staff were very understanding and helpful, although the fact that the telephone lines and Internet were out of service at this time made finding another hotel challenging.

Room Tip: If you value a quiet nights sleep, try to get a room NOT on Dame Street.
