A Perfect 12 Night Stay

The hotel was perfect for our needs. We stayed on the 7th floor premier level. The room was bright and clean. Staying on the premier level we had access to the premier club which offered newspapers, coffee, water and a very comfortable lounge area. The hotel was located across from the train, dart and luas stations for convienent travel options. All major sites in Dublin were within walking distance. I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again on a return visit. Only item we missed was not having an ice machine.

Great Hotel

This hotel seams to be small from outside but when you get inside you realise that is quiet big. It has 175 beadrooms and is well furnished and equipped. It has a gymnasium, sauna, car park and the staff is really friendly and helpful. I have stayed in this hotel before with late rooms and I had the same opinion then as I have now, which confirms that it wasn't a fluke. Very central and close to everything. We will definitely come back.

great location

great hotel. We were to Dublin to see some of our friends and do some Christmas shopping. We have stayed in this hotel before and all we can say is that is getting better by the day. The staff very friendly as before and very helpful. Nice rooms, spacious, clean adn comfortable. Lovely location and good food.What more do you need? Oh, I forgot; great value for the money you pay.

the place to stay

we had stayed at the North Star years ago and now it has had a facelift is really nice. The staff were pleasant and the rooms were spotless and vey comfortable. The full Irish breakfast was piping hot and fresh and there was plenty of it. We stayed in the Temple bar area for our previous visit but would chose the North Star again. There is virtualy no noise from the DART and we were only 10 minutes walk from the centre of things. Dont expect the Plaza -its not, but it is one of the nicest hotels in Dublin
