Stayed here on Sunday Feb 16/2014 & everything was great. Got to check in early, rooms were clean, service was friendly, lots of tourist info from the staff & locals, free Irish breakfast when you book through the hotel. Nice pub downstairs (very comfy while having a pint) Just fantastic!!! It's also close to the shopping centre & tons of...

Great little hotel with a few issues. OK! The staff were 5 stars and helped us with any questions or problems. We have to say Valentino is great, this guy was a walking encyclopedia on Dublin. The food package of a meal and a drink for €10 was great though sometimes disappointing because they had sold out. Good location to...

I arrived at hotel prior to check-in. The staff was accommodating and give me room choices. Room is average but worked for me and my travel plans, I needed a place mainly to sleep because my intentions were to see as much of Ireland as I can. Hotel can use an upgrade in amenities. I was disappointed in the various...

I will never stay here again! I would never recommend anyone to stay here!! Loudest room ever, blaring music until after 3am!!!! We had book another hotel (Landsdown Hotel) but due to their overbooking or as they said a plumbing issue we got placed here. Don't stay here!!!!!!!!

We booked a room at the last minute and paid 48€ for the night. Not a 5 star but we didn't expect that. Room was clean, reception courteous and we could sleep a good night for a reasonnable price. All we hoped for.

We (me & my husband) stayed here for a weekend break in Dublin, having struggled to find accommodation that was reasonably priced and available we found this gem. Although a little further out than we would have perhaps liked (it was about a 20-30minute walk to Grafton St/Temple Bar) the hotel was great, the staff were really friendly and helpful...

This hotel has seen better days. The room we had looked out over the roof, garbage and a air conditioning unit even though there was no AC. It is located in a part of town where Lebanese and Indian food stores outnumber Irish food. The Hotel manager was nice, sitting area furniture like the rest of the place was in...

I stayed here recently on a business trip to Dublin. It's an economical choice and within walking distance (about 20 minutes) to Trinity College, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and most of the other things I wanted to see. The full Irish breakfast was delicious. I had a single room, and it was very small but clean and all I needed. Be...
