We stayed here for one night in April while attending a concert in the O2 and found it to be great value, the room was top class and spotless as was the bathroom. The staff were very welcoming and helpful from the very pleasant guy who checked us in to the bar staff. The hotel also provide a shuttle service to and from the O2. It is within walking distance of lots of Dublin attractions. All in all a lovely place to stay

Stayed here in April 2012, everything was perfect, the staff in particular were really nice, the girl at reception was friendly and the waiter who served us at breakfast (didn't catch his name, but he did tell us he was from Poland), was particularly nice and funny.
We ended up with an executive room, even though the price was quite low (68 euro for a double). The room was spotless and comfortable and had a view of the Aviva stadium. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Grand Canal theatre. We really enjoyed staying here!

My wife and I stayed her during a recent theatre visit for 3 reasons; the proximity to the Bord Gáis Theatre, the only rate (with complimentary breakfast) and the fact that I had stayed her before on numerous occasions for business purposes, albeit the last time was 2 years or so ago.
This was a leisure trip so we were delighted to be allocated a room on the executive floor. The soft spongey carpet gives you a feel of whats to come as you walk through the door into bright, modern and spotless rooms complete with all facilities including flat screen tv, tea/coffee, iron and ironing board, egyptian cotton bedding (so my wife said!) and even dressing gowns. A good night's sleep was had.
Before the theatre we ate in the Gasworks. As always, a hub of activity but service was fast and the food was excellent. Breakfast in the morning in the restaurant provided a good choice of hot and cold breakfasts and again no complaints.
The location is only 10 minutes from the theatre, 10 minutes from the Aviva Stadium and we walked to Grafton Street in 15 minutes.
Plus Free Parking!!
Well worth the visit.

We stayed here recently when attending a concert in the O2 and I can honestly say that we totally enjoyed our stay. We had stayed here a good few years back and we were glad to see that the standards had not slipped. The underground car parking is just fantastic as parking in the area can be a nightmare with the close proximity to different venues.
The staff on reception when checking in we're very polite and helpful, and yes people might say,,it's their job but believe me when I say it was totaly genuine. We really liked the security aspect of the hotel also, as you can not gain access to the rooms without swiping your room key in the elevator to go up. The bar food was lovely and the staff were also brilliant. The room was clean and comfortable. Only problem we did have was with wifi in the room but this did not bother us to much.
We will certainly be staying here again. It was such a comfortable relaxing stay eventhough it was only for one night. Also we found out that the hotel do packages for "The Grand Canal Theatre" shows which are great and should be looked into if anyone is travelling for a show. We will certainly be keeping this in mind. I should have said "Bord Gais Energy Theatre" , but I did prefer the original name...:0)

My husband and I spent 2 evenings at this hotel as part of our CIE Tour of Ireland. Of all the hotels we stayed at, this one was the only disappointment. The location is good (about a 10-15 minute walk into the city center) but that's about the only positive thing that I recall.

Some comments:
-We returned to our room one evening to find our "message" light blinking on the phone. Though the front desk staff assured me several times that we did NOT have a message (despite the fact that we couldn't stop the red blinking light, and had to cover it to sleep), we then received a call from them in the middle of night with our message....
-We requested a continental breakfast be delivered to our room on the day we were departing for our flight back home. The delivery was about 10 minutes late, which made it too late for us to eat (we quickly shoveled some bites into our mouths before having to scramble out of our room). Considering that the time slots you check off on the room service order form are a 15-minute window (i.e. 7:00-7:15AM), I find it unacceptable that our food was still late...especially on a day when we are clearly checking out and have travel plans.
-Our room was small, dark, and very basic. It felt almost depressing to be in it.

I would not recommend this hotel to others.
