Alexander: Mediocre but affordable

Clean enough, though the maid didn't understand English. The rest of the staff was extremely prompt and accommodating however.

You will be surprised

I did not plan this trip a head of time.The staff were very helpful, very polite and patient. " True gentlemen" " British Style" . The location is only five minutes walk to the city center and all the main attraction less than ten minutes walk to Liffey River if you want to go for a run. Very convinent.

Great One Night Stay

The location was fantastic - short walking distance to Trinity College, shopping, restaurants, Temple Bar, castles, and cathedrals. The hotel itself was clean, well maintained, and had great service. I'd highly recommend it!
