Excellent Anniversary Break

Very friendly and helpful staff hotel was immaculate. This was our first trip to Dublin and won't be our last definitely use this hotel again. The trip was made even more special by the free upgrade to a suite can't thank the hotel enough! Would recommend this hotel to everyone thinking of going to Dublin only a ten minute walk to the Temple Bar area and the shops.

summer trip

The location was great and the staff was very friendly and courteous. The room doors slam when left to shut making sleep almost impossible when hearing your neighbors come in and out. The sauna only worked one of the three days I was there. It's a good hotel just not a great one.

MIDWEEK BREAK

Hotel is very quaint and stylish - only problem there was no lifts from the reception area to the main floor, so if you have mobility problems or pushchairs you will struggle. Room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Very clean bathroom. About a 5/10mins walk to main drag of Dublin (Stiletto Heel). Used the airport bus that took us round the corner from the hotel and used the Hop on/off bus, 27Euros. This was very reliable and took us round the whole city. Overall a very good time was had and would visit Dublin and stay at this hotel again.

Couple getaway

The room was nice and clean and spacious. Although bed slightly too soft. Very good location with nice craft beer pub right hand side of hotel and nice chippy on left hand side. This is important to know as you might be hungry-the hotel breakfast was not very good. I ordered the continental which meant basically toast and cereal! And the cooked breakfast was not appetising and sausages dreadful. They were also quite rude about telling us to make sure we did not share our breakfast as we were ordering two types! The other problem was the noise in the hotel. The house from the street and early traffic was loud in the evenings a d early morning followed by room service really early in the morning with loud talking and slamming doors. It was as if they were deliberately trying to wake us up so they could clean our rooms. Quite inconsiderate when you have do not disturb on your door! It's s shame as the hotel was nice but these things happened every day and ruined the experience!

Amazing!!

We booked a room for four of us which had two single and a double bed. For the price we thought the hotel may just be an average joe however we were very quickly proven wrong! The staff are excellent the food in the restaurant and for breakfast was amazing and the room couldn't have been any cleaner! Would highly recommend to people of all ages and will definitely be back!!
