Company booked the room for me - two night stay. The worst "hotel" I have ever been to and only reason. It is overpriced (200EUR/night), room have to smallest shower booth I have ever seen and you'll barely fit in. Breakfast was late the first day and on the second day it took about twenty minutes before someone from kitchen...

Not located in the nicest part of Dublin. The accommodation was clean and everything adequate. Stupidly only on set of keys giving to the occupants and no option for another set when renting an apartment. Really inconvenient when travelling with two couples who want to do their own thing on certain days. Complained to management and emailed no response. Don't...

Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of September with a group of friends. Very very disappointed with the room .I had a single room which had no wardrobe but two coat hangers on a rail above the tea and coffee condiments. The bed was not even on a proper base but built on some ply wood? The shower...

We arrived as a family of 4, 2 small kids and quite a bit of baggage. The 2 floor apartment was a bit of a struggle but that ok, I'm sure the exercise is good for me! There is no elevator. We were over the road from the main hotel in a separate block, and the detached nature of the...

Dublin is certainly an expensive city, which unfortunately means even the lesser things aren't cheap. The reception staff were the highlight; they were all very warm and chatty, which is more than can be said for a lot of hotels. As for the place itself, Clifden House is OK but we're struggling to describe it as 'good'. It's a tall...

I did not even stay at this place because of a Booking.com issue. When I originally booked this place I did it with the intention of pay at the property in case our travel plans changed (which they did). I volleyed back and forth in all kinds of manners with them about changing. They REFUSED to accommodate me. This was...

Lovely apartment, very clean, lots of new appliances and tastefully decorated. We had a top floor apartment, which was fine for us but if you have problems walking up stairs, ask for a ground floor apartment or room. Large choice for breakfast and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Very near to all the attractions and the hop on...

There was no cold water in the flat! The water was so hot on the last day that we couldn't shower with risk of serious burns. We stayed in the basement flat (no 13) which had very little day light so was not naturally warmed up. We couldn't find a way to turn the heater on or the oven to...

The price of the rooms for double use (at least in peak season) do not correspond value. Yes, they are more or less well decorated but not all that glitters is gold We were given a narrow room with no refurbished bathroom (small) as that in the photo gallery (bigger). The space between bed and wall to walk nearly inexisting....
