“Great Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Had a great stay in this hotel. Hotel is smack right in the middle of city centre so it's convenient to get around. There are many restaurants and bus stops around so it's easy to get from one place to another. Reception is 24 hours and service was exceptional. Room was great except for the noise from the street but otherwise, bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. Definitely a recommended place to stay in Dublin!

My room was down stairs and it was like a dungeon no window in the room very dark and the t.v did not work, the bedroom seemed clean but the toilets where disgusting the sink and shower where leaking and then stains all over the toilet its self i choose not to shower there i was better off. We got home not to late but we where knocking on the door for ages for them to let us in because they guy was inside watching tv and could not hear us. and this is not the best part of dublin especially for two young girls to be standing outside, it can be rough and homeless people are around this area. the man working was not very helpful i had to ask him all the questions such as what time is check out, where is breakfast served etc. the breakfast is only cereal and toast. i would never ever stay here again even if it was free

Room Tip: i was in room 14 it was not nice because it had no window and was at the bottom of the main stairs s...
