Me and my wife stayed here for 7 nights late July 2011.
To start out with the negative:
First of all this place is extremly noisy and you should not expect to get any sleep. The walls are so thin that you can here everything said in the next room and you will for sure be woken up by guests returning home late in the evening.
Second. The keys to the rooms are attached to a big wooden sign that bangs into the door as people comes and go..
Another thing is that the hotel maindoor is locked at all times, so you have to ring the doorbell to enter. In the nighttime this was terrible since it woke us up so many times every night.
The staff use the nighttime to wacumclean the common areas and again,.. the noise from a vacumcleaner at 2 a clock at night outside your thin door was so anoying.
When we got down to the breakfast the first morning we noticed that water was dripping from the ceiling in the restaurant. (quite alot actualy) When we told the old lady who runs the restaurant she just said: Thats when people are showering upstairs, and then she left again. She did not bring a bucket to place uner, nor did she wipe up the water. How delicious that shower water runs down through the ceiling and drips on the tables. I just imagine someone peeing in the shower..wonder where that ends up?!
The morning we checked out the old lady in the restaurant asked us if we were leaving, we said yes, then she took our orders and just ignored us for 30 min. She didnt bring our breakfast or coffee.. but the 3 families who came after us into the restaurant got served and ate and left.. and we were still waiting. She just ignored Us becuase we wouldnt stay there for the night. So we had to complain and finaly she brought us some food..not what we had ordered but just something. We were now in such a hurry to get to the airport that we didnt relly care anymore.
So all in all.. a noisy place where you will get no sleep unless your dead drunk.
The hygiene is questionable in the restaurant with the shower water that drips from the ceiling. And the lady who works in the restaurant is so rude to ignore the order from people who are checking out.
How ever when all this is said.
The rest of the staff was so friendly and helpful and very polite and profesional.
So if you dont mind not sleeping, dont mind that you wont have any privacy in the rooms due to the very very thin walls, and if you dont mind the bad service and dripping water in the restaurant. Then you could choose this place. But you will for sure find better places for less money in Dublin.
