The hotel is in an excellent position rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was excellent, arrived very early and they offered to look after our cases and the same at the end of the stay. Breakfast was great. The staff were the true asset of the place. Will I return - Yes

First, let's start with the good. Great location right in the city centre. Walking distance to everything. If you're staying in Dublin, I highly recommend staying in the city centre. That being said, location is about it. For a four-star hotel, the service throughout my trip was extremely disappointing. First, I was placed in a loud room overlooking the street....

Good hotel, rooms were fairly dated not too shabby though, staff seemed friendly, room service prices not so much...but are they ever? If you wait till after 11 it's cheaper, fell asleep though too much of the black stuff. Breakfast was nice in the morning too much good choices! Overall a good stay. Paddy

The location was close to many things. It was pricey and they were painting and refurbishing the hotel while we were there. There was no lobby seating, only in the bar or restaurant. Had to pay for the fitness center.
