The property is located in a pretty cool residential area of Dublin very near some embassies like the US Embassy, Israeli, etc., but you can walk for about 15 to 20 minutes and be where the action is. There is a suburban train station about four blocks away should you want to take a trip to one of the many...

My husband and I stayed here this Valentine's week-end! The hotel staff entered our room without invitation, despite being asked not to! The fire alarm was set off twice at 4 a.m. and 4.20 a.m. Both the foyer and the general bar area are freezing cold, as the front doors are situated at both spots. The bar itself is shabby,...

We stayed in this hotel as my friend was meeting her wedding planners from Portugal in it. We got a unbelievable deal. Food was gorgeous. Only thing missing was there was no band or music in the bar and it was a Saturday night. That was the only fault I could have found with this hotel. It was a great...

My room was spacious with a lovely big bathroom and separate room for my case and clothes. The towels were large and soft and the complementary toiletries were lovely. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was extensive with many choices. My room was quite chilly and I would have liked complementary water in the room. However, overall...

Didn't get the correct breakfast ordered for our room. Also the Toast was not toast and no butter to put on the so called toast!! Then on leaving found the wing mirror had been robbed off our car. So not very happy worked out expensive in the end. Even though you're paying for the parking it's not safe. Disappointed.

Hotel clean and staff very helpful, Right next to the Avila stadium, It's a nice walk into the centre takes around half hr but a pleasant walk. Breakfast a little on expensive side paid 30 euros for 2, best way to save a couple of euros is to stick it on your room number. Nice bar attached to the hotel.
