Really good location and easy and convenient to get to. A bit outdated but clean. Lots of restaurants and bars all around. We were initially worried that we were too far from temple bar but it's quite close. One downside for those who like it super quiet at night was that fri and say the bars around can get quite...

The location was great and front desk staff tried to make it positive. But this hotel was overpriced, dirty and badly needing a renovation. I've been in some bad hotels but this was one of the worst. The Wifi worked occasionally but only on the ground and part of the first floor, not in the room. The room itself was... More

The rooms sanitation was terrible. The carpet appears to have had a flood on it and it was never replaced. It was disgusting. The bathroom had mould around the tub and ceiling. The air vent in the ceiling was so clogged with lint I was worried it would fall onto my head. They did not even have the time to... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times previously and the position ( close to Grafton St,Gaiety Theatre & St Stephens Green )& cost still are the best things about it. The hotel is also close to many good restaurants & wine bars -- Peplos on Stephens Green would be a favourite. Also The Port Hose & Salamanca Tapas Bars... More

In the middle of everything Dublin, you can walk anywhere from here. There is a huge selection of bars, shopping, clubs a short walk away. The staff are very helpful and nice. There is wifi only one the first floor and only in the lounge area, and it barely works. The rooms are very old and tired, but clean enough.... More

Absolutely brilliant location, also has a really nice bar area within the hotel. Right next to the shopping area, nice bars with loads of restaurants. If you want to go into the livelier Temple Bar area this is also only a 10 minute walk so 10/10 for overall location. This hotel however is nearer a 2 star and not a... More

To be honest, everything was old, really old. Old furniture, old drapes, old tapestry. We asked for a non-smoking room but it still smelled like smoke; we let it rest because we didn't want to risk changing rooms, this one seemed acceptable and that, looking at the state of the place, was the best we could hope for. It's a... More

Toilet smelt of sewage, blood on the bed throw, stains on the bed valance, pillows flat as pancakes, holes in the curtains, dust on the carpet, basic bathroom, little comfort - all at the bargain price of £150 per night????? Redeeming feature is the location.

This is a fantastic building in a great location. Unfortunatly the decor is very dated and looks very old and used. Quite a lot of stains in areas however the room itself was not dirty. The beds were very clean and the room was cleaned everyday. As I first said the location is fantastic. We also paid for breakfast which... More
