We stayed here in October 2012. We booked a double room (paid €55.00). When we arrived check in was very fast and the staff at reception were very friendly. Our room was a good size. It was very clean and we had plenty of space. The bathroom was large enough also. We had one problem with the bathroom, there was no water in the hot tap in the bath. I phoned reception and they arranged another room for us straight away. The new room was identical to the 1st and the bath worked fine. The bed is quite soft but it was comfortable, loads of towels and extra duvets & pillows. There was a sofa bed in both rooms but we didn't need to use it.
The location of this hotel is great, it's not far from the city and is very close to Castleknock and Blanchardstown. It is also close to Dublin Airport (maybe about 10min drive). There is a diner located next door to the hotel which serves burgers / chips / sandwiches / breakfast etc. We ate breakfast there the next day and the food was good. The service was also good (remember it is a diner and the food is very 'diner' like).
I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay close to the Airport / Castleknock / Blanchardstown / Phoenix Park. There is lots of free parking and wifi costs €5 in the hotel (I'm not sure how long you get for your €5). If your looking for a luxury hotel, stay somewhere else. This hotel is not luxury but it is functional, reasonably priced, clean and quite. It serves it's purpose well. We will definately be staying here again.
