Best hotel in Temple Bar, you are close enough to walk to all bars/restaurants but it's further away enough to be quiet when you want to sleep. Rooms were 5* such a lovey room, comfy bed, lovely bar downstairs, staff were so polite and helpful. Couldn't have stayed in a better hotel.

We had a top (4th) floor room at the back of the hotel, no noise from the street whatsoever. Facilities could not be faulted, comfortable bed, excellent shower, WiFi, Music station and TV. Far enough away from the bustle of Temple Bar (5 minutes stroll) makes this hotel an ideal base for a short vacation. Recommended.

Comfortable hotel off the main strip but in walking distance to Dublin's city center. Hotel has all the amenities you need for a quick trip. Restaurant adjacent to the lobby but I did not partake. Front desk were efficient and polite, however, they were not openly friendly. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a convenient and relaxing...

Reception staff were very polite and friendly! The room was clean and cozy with comfortable bed. Complementary tea set with biscuits and bottled water, which were nice. The bathroom remained damp quite a while after using shower and smelt a bit in the second evening, but apart from that, it was great stay! Very close to Temple Bar but the...

This hotel was perfect! My wife and I were honeymooning and wanted to be close to the action in Dublin, but were happy to be able to sleep at night without it being terribly loud. The hotel itself is fine. There is nothing fancy about it, but it was clean and comfortable. The thing that made this hotel incredible for...

Beautiful room with all modern conveniences. Located very centrally but quiet as it is far enough away from the madness of temple bar. Check in the staff were friendly and helpful. They offer a 50% discount with Qpark to park your car as no car parking facilities are on site. Qpark is 2mins walk away so very handy. Hotel offers...

This Hotel was pure random choice, as there so many hotels Dublin to choose from. We checked reviews and the price was good and it was where we wanted to be. The Airport bus stops just around the corner. So you don't have to drag your bags miles through the streets to get to the hotel. We arrived to early...

I only spent one night at this hotel (14/09/2016). Went to Dublin for business and could not find any available closer hotel to my Head Office. It is handy and only 5 minutes walk from Grafton St. or of St Stephen´s Green park. I never stayed before in this hotel, but have to say that it is dated and not...

Having walked past this hotel quite a few times I always thought it looked good from the outside so after seeing a great deal I decided I'd try it out inside! It's an excellent hotel, our welcome by the girl on reception on Sunday evening (sorry I don't know her name) was brilliant. She also checked us out and deserves...
