Would recommend Tue, Feb 25, 2014
Staff friendly. Food great.clean and comfortable. Pillows bit lumpy but that was only negative. Great location near air coach and tour buses. Let us book in at 11am. Have already recommended to friends.

Attractions

Dont bother with st patricks cathedral. Charged to see a gloomy dark dirty depressing church.

Fantastic Location

Would recommend Sat, Feb 15, 2014
The hotel was fantastic very friendly with Irish humour as a bonus and extremely helpful. The hotel was in a fantastic location for airport buses tour buses shopping eating and local entertainment. My only downfall was the mattresses on the beds. After just one night I was in agony. The staff did their best to help by offering extra bed mattresses. This was a little better but was still suffering. My friend managed the 2 nights but couldn't have gone any longer. It was such a shame as everything else was perfect and I would love to go again but only if better mattresses could be provided.

Bit of a let down

Would not recommend Mon, Feb 10, 2014
Only stayed one night and we were pleased about this. Got off to an odd start when a member of staff came into our room and gave us the reason that they just wanted to see if everything was OK, so after that we weren't comfortable leaving our valuables in there. We told reception but they didn't seem bothered and just dismissed it as they said the member of staff thought there was a problem with the bed?! Breakfast was awful! You paid extra for it and it was a self service affair, which wasn't made very clear. It was like a run down old school canteen, not very comfortable, and the food was cold. There was an old lady struggling to carry her breakfast and the staff were just ignoring her. I was just about to go over there to help but someone else who was nearer assisted her. The room was OK and would suffice if you were staying overnight on business but I would not recommend it for a holiday. We did not feel very comfortable there.

Perfect location

Would recommend Tue, Jan 21, 2014
Excellent stay. Hotel spotlessly clean, room comfortable and staff friendly and helpful. Superb breakfast. Location perfect with airport buses stopping right outside the hotel. Sight-seeing buses also started their tours opposite the hotel. Walking distance to centre of the city, with plenty of bars and restaurants just around the corner. Would stay there again.

Dining

Good 2 for 1 deal on breakfasts.

Perfect location for a Dublin visit

Would recommend Mon, Dec 30, 2013
All of the hotels services worked as advertised. The only drawback was a little crampy room - it felt like a hotel in Tokyo. Place was clean and the staff friendly - even in Christmas time. Outside the hotel is the stops for airport bus and the hop on hop off tour bus.

Dining

Kimchi and Parnell's are located near the hotel. Both are worth the visit

Nothing special

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 16, 2013
We stayed in the hotel for 1 night. It is good only if you want to visit the city or you want something in city centre. It was very noisy and very basic and it's not cheap. Good thing they offered breakfast for 2 at 15€ . Full price is not worth it.

Absolutely Recommend

Would recommend Thu, Nov 14, 2013
From arrival to departure everything was great. Great location (airport bus stops right in front) outstanding service from staff and, for hotel food/bev, some of the best. Tour buses and tourist info just around the corner. 15 min. walk to Temple Bar district and Trinity College. For the price, don't think you could find a better hotel. Would and will stay there when I go back to Dublin. Only thing I'd do differently, would be to request a room off the street and high up away from the closing of the bar next door. The Irish love their nightlife. :)

Pleasant Emerald Isle Vacation

Would recommend Sat, Nov 2, 2013
This was my first trip to Ireland. I was extremely pleased with the how helpful the staff was and the cleanliness of the room. The hotel is located off of one of the major streets in Dublin. The Hop on Hop off bus is right across the street and shuttle bus to the airport is just around the corner. I would definitely stay here again!
