Ate here with other half last night. Really like this place. Good atmosphere and lots of great staff. Service very good. I ate the red Thai curry. It was good. Only downside was they put it into a bowl and the small portion of rice slid straight into the curry, so felt like I was eating just a plate of curry ! A plate be good the next time :) OH had fish and chips which he said was good. Will defo be back.

had a lovely time here,granted the beds are not the greatest and the rooms do need a little more attention but for 49euro i cant really complain. The staff were very helpful and the food was great i had both dinner and breakfast in the hotel. 2 main draw backs (1st) the free wifi does not work in the bedrooms u have to be sitting in the bar to use it (2nd) when ur sitting in the bar using the free wifi u will probably buy a drink and the prices are huge (2 glasses of wine= 12euro)

Room Tip: get rooms 1-5 cause 6-10 are beside the railway line

Where to start,
I booked a one night stay recently, when leaving the next morning I found my car had been broken into, I went to the desk explained my situation and asked for the cops to be called, I was not offered help , asked was I ok , nothing. and was charged 49.00 for the nights stay.
did not find the reception staff and manager helpful.
attitude of the staff is all wrong.
would seriously not recommend this place.
they say there is free Wi Fi but not in the room I stayed in

Room Tip: Do not stay here, nicer hotels around the area, noise from trains passing as well.

What a quaint hotel.
Staff very friendly and food very reasonably priced.

On entering th hotel the surrounding decor was very pleasant and quite modern. On being shown to our twin room, we were quite disippointed. The bedroom looked clean and was very comfortable But the smell of damp was unbareable. But then the smell of Lynnx Deodorant made it worse.
The bathroom looked very modern, but on closer inspection we found large damp patches on the ceiling and the wall was stained. Also there was smell of damp.
Would stay there again -But not in the room Singelgracht.

Room Tip: Stay away from the room - Singelgracht.

Very clean and friendly hotel. Close to Dublin and Blanchards Town Shopping Centre. Probably a bit too close to the railway line but good accommodation for all that. Friendly bar and good food. Just the place for a short break. Close to railway station and M50. David Friend
