Newer hotel in Ballsbridge - great rates

Hotel is relatively new (5 yrs old) and located on the edge of Ballsbridge closest to Trinity College. We have stayed at other hotels in this quiet neighborhood, and this compares well for services and price. Free car parking is a plus, somewhat offset by charge for breakfast (your option). Free wi-fi and helpful front desk staff are other pluses.

great hotel

Great hotel in quiet area, yet easily accessible to all the Dublin attractions. It was a short walk to Marion Square. Better yet, the Dart station was just around the corner! Our room was large by European standards, and spotless. The staff was helpful and knowledgable and friendly. Could not have had a better hotel for the price. Definitely would suggest taking the Dart to the Dublin seaside suburbs (Malahide, Howthe, Dalkey, etc.) The climb up to the summit at Howthe was especially breathtaking and a relatively easy walk.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Many of the restuarants offer "early bird" specials if you dine for instance, before 7pm. It saves a lot of money because eating out is not cheap.

Comfortable and clean

We booked at this hotel because of the price. Pleasantly surprised at the comfort and cleanliness. It was a bit of a walk to the city center but after all the good food we ate we had to work it off somehow. Safe, quiet environment. We arrived early and the staff locked our luggage up until the room was ready. When we returned to the hotel (still before check-in time) they had our room ready and luggage in the room. The food was really tasty on the bar.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Very close to the DART. Take full advantage of that.

Nice

Everything was clean and nice. The only problem was that our room was right over the road and with no airconditioning we had to leave the windows open which made it a little noisy.

Very nice hotel for the price

The hotel was in a residential area and wasn't that close to downtown but cabs were plentiful and there was bus transportation to downtown a couple of blocks away. There were a couple of pubs and stores within easy walking distance. The room rate did not include breakfast which we didn't find out until we finished our breakfast the first morning there. It would have been nice to have been told that in advance. There is a nice bar and restaurant attached to the hotel.
