Awesome hotel in Dublin

The hotel is in a nice location. The staff was very nice. The room was a little small, but it suited our needs for two nights. I would stay here again.

Nice hotel, good location.

Hotel was very nice, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Only small complaint was that water pressure in the room was pretty low, though this may be a city regulation.
