Great location at top of O'Connell Street. However there is a rock pub on the premises - closes about 2 am. Very good value midweek - average breakfast.

Service got one extra point as the ladies who served breakfast were very nice. 24 hour reception wasn't so and we pretty much had to force entry to get into the hotel early hours. Pretty grim and needs +++ maintence and cleaning. Good location in terms of geography but on a busy street above a busy pub. Think u can get better on this budget. Redeeming factors breakfast Inc and easy walk into town.

I stayed here for 3 nights and was quite disappointed. OK for 40 Euros a night I don't expect luxury, but I do expect a plug for the bathroom sink to be provided.

The bed was comfortable, if slightly creaky, with clean linen. The breakfast was enjoyable, although as a vegetarian I had a tough job explaining to the lady serving tables that I don't eat meat. However, once she understood, it was fine.

The only bad point was the bar at the back of the hotel. I understand other reviewers have commented on this. I would have liked to see some updated UPVC windows which might have helped to block out the noise. It went on till 2am on Wednesday and Thursday nights and 3am on Fridays. The noise was unbearable and I didn't sleep well.

Having said this, I appreciated the cental location and the cleanliness. If you are looking for a quiet hotel though, I would probably not suggest this one to you.

Hello everyone, this hotel rocks! I stayed there for 3 nights last year in August 2010, had a great time, stuff was friendly and I loved the 80s Western Design!!! CENTRAL LOCATION, great value of money, silly 40 EUR for single room with breakfast and it was definitely worth. If I ever go to Dublin again, I will definitely place myself to the Gate hotel again!
