Very clean, crisp bedding and

Very clean, crisp bedding and general clean room, receptionist nice, excellent central location, bus from the airport stops across the road. The only downsides were the walls are paper thin so you can literally follow the conversation in the next room! And the windows don't close properly. We were only there for one night so this was okish but if it were for any longer it might have spoilt it. Very cheap tho so if all you need is a clean bed for the night it's fine.

The hotel is in a very good central

The hotel is in a very good central location close to all major points of interest for a visitor to Dublin. The service was basic, but acceptable. On the up side the staff were all friendly and helpful (reception, restaurant...), the lift was working ;), breakfast was ok (no fruits or veggies though), sheets and bathroom were clean, the room was facing away from the street and on the top floor so it was not noisy. On the down side, no aircon. in room (small fan instead), no wifi except in the lobby, dated decor, could do with a through cleaning - especially windows, curtains and carpets! We got a bit of a shock when entering the lobby, but the price was good (can't expect more for that!). Wouldn't go alone or with kids, but in twos ok.

Had booked smoking room but there

Had booked smoking room but there was no ashtray in room and in bathroom there was just one hand towel and soap. I rang reception and she arrived a couple of minutes later with one bath towel and a saucer for an ashtray. I was staying 3 nights and each day this wa replaced with a clean saucer. Radiator was also turned off in December.

This hotel is conveniently located

This hotel is conveniently located on O'Connell Street, just north of the Dublin General Post Office. It is a very good location from which to see many of the sights in Dublin. The hotel itself is a little dated and in need of some renovation.
