“Great place”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Stayed at the hotel for two nights with a large party of girls. We had a triple room, very spacious and clean. Breakfast was ok, what you expect for the price. Staff spoke well English and were very helpfull. Location was good, near the Heineken experience and walkable to the centre. Two of the girls asked to change rooms as it was a little small, they were then offered a nicer room. Good hotel!

I really enjoyed my short stay in this hotel. Everything was perfect, I could not ask for anything more for this price. Staff was extremely friendly. Room was was very clean and comfy. Hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the city centre and in a very quiet street, no noise at all. The only downside of this hotel are very thin walls but it was not a big problem for me, had no problem with sleep at nights. Buffet breakfast was actually quite nice. I would recommend this hotel for everyone for stay.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights. Through out our stay the staff were very friendly and were always more than happy to help us out.
There were fresh flowers in our spacious room which my girlfriend really liked.
Free Internet in room worked really well.
Good breakfast buffet to help start the day.
Would use this hotel again.

Good points-Well situated ( Weterling circuit), clean, quiet street. Breakfast normal menu but everything was good quality and there was plenty.Staff very friendly and helpful. Downside- bedroom small but what you would expect for the price, expected shared bathroom but none on third floor where our room was had to go down to the second floor so watch out for that .
Good for a week-end but not a longer stay

Stayed for one night on a Saturday and booked a twin room for €89 (cheapest we could find). Clean room which was small and had a wash bowl with shower and toilet outside on landing which were also clean. Didn't make breakfast which ends at 9.30am. Stayed in the annexe which was two doors down the street and we were on the third floor. Very steep staircase but okay if travelling light. Ideal location if going to the Paradiso at night (11 minute walk) and close to good tram links. Hotel has a sign saying 'No Drug Taking in Rooms'. Other guests didn't adhere to this rule as the smell of weed was very strong when we reached our floor. As i said in the heading ok for a one night stay.
