in all my time travelling, I have never come across the likes of this place. Its dirty, old, noisy, and every other bad thing that I can think of. Oh yeah did I say that it was dirty. Filthy in fact. The food was awful, the carpets looked like something out of the russian revolution - after murder had been...

Perfect place to stay if you're looking to stay in the middle of the city. Not the most well kept property, but we didn't really mind. Long walk to the room, and it gets noisy first thing in the morning, but you can't expect dead city centre location AND no noise, for us though, the positives outweighed the negatives

Sol Brotin says, AVOID! The Victoria could be beautiful. Positives: perfect location, hot water, clean comfortable bed, lots of character. NEGATIVES: fllthy carpets, "the last place you want a dirty carpet is where you eat" and musty smell throughout, limeted, bland breakfast and rude night staff. My opinion is; a hotels true purpose is to take a guest to your...

We were booked to stay at this hotel from 09/02/2011 till 12/02/2011 with Flexibletrips a part of the Thomas Cook Org. We received an e mail from them on 08/02/2011 to inform us that we were being moved to the Gresham Metropole ( A brilliant hotel ). It transpires that the Victoria has closed down as was obvious when we...

Stunning location, right in city centre, a short walk to the famous Cork food market and cozy little alley-ways leading to other shopping and pubs - close to the bus and train stations. The accommodations and pub/restaurant in the hotel were quaint rather than luxurious. The staff was friendly and helpful - the restaurant server was a prime example a...

We only decided to stay in the City Centre because of the snow making driving difficult after a night out. I didn't have high expectations from this 2* hotel but even then I was really disappointed. The first room they gave us smelled like it had not had any fresh air in 20 years, the second was filthy (every piece...

My wife and I just returned from our first trip in Ireland, and we stayed at the Victoria Hotel for one night while touring Cork. I agree with most of the other reviews; the hotel has a lot of character, but could use a little updating. That being said, the location is perfect, within walking distance to all of Cork's...

I too was concerned about staying here having read some of the bad reviews, but actually this hotel is fine if you treat it for what it is - impeccably located, basic, clean, well-priced. One friend with us has walking difficulty, so the entrance stairs were a bit of a pain for her, but we managed, and she took the...
