The reception staff were amazingly helpful. Our first time in Ireland and this has set a great example for future visits. Rooms clean and nice decor throughout. A nice walk into Dublin City centre (please note: wear flats) the gent in reception gave directions and pointed out all the best bars for us and my goodness was he right. We've... More

This hotel is in a lovely area where many embassies are located. While not directly downtown, the walk is not very far. We stayed in the towers, which can be a bit of a "hike" to the main parts of the hotel. There is construction next door but, being there on a weekend, we were not bothered by the noise.... More

Stayed the second time & I'm a lot more impressed! Parking was free, extra toilet paper! & pretty cheap considering it was booked last minute & esp during a busy weekend (NZ vs Ireland Rugby game at the stadium). Enjoyed our stay!

We arrived early and were able to leave our luggage while we looked around Dublin. Our room was large and clean if a little dated. We used room service which came quite quickly, we ordered a BLT which was fine. Breakfast selection was good.

It is a lovely walk from the hotel to the city centre of Dublin but you can easily cab it. The hotel offers very clean and quiet accommodation and the staff is wonderful. Transport is available from the hotel to the airport but be advised - this is by bus and the stop is across the road from the hotel.... More
