I'm so tired!

The hotel was over $200/night which was a bit on the more expensive side. We arrived about two hours early and the hotel staff refused to let us into our room. The staff stated she could try to let us in 15 minutes early (whoop). That did not occur. They let us have a room key at 12:30PM. I took a nap in the hotel lobby. Once we got into the room, we discovered there was a man in there fixing some electrical wiring and then he said he wanted to paint later (what?). He left after some confusion. We then took a nap, to be woken up by people screaming outside. We decided to get ready for dinner. After we showered, we discovered that none of the electrical outlets work, we called maintenance and they fixed the problem 30 minutes later. We then placed another call because the blowdryer did not work. They issued us another blowdryer. After, dinner and some nightlife, we decided to retire. Because there was no air conditioning in the room we decided to open the window a bit. MISTAKE. The nightlife continued till about 6AM- people were screaming and throwing class all night. BTW-If you plan an eating breakfast or late dinner, forget about it. The restaurants nearby open at 11:30AM and close at 6PM or 7PM.

Dissapointing

We had to move from our initial room to the general state of it. It was dirty. The second room was marginally better but the cleanliness was still not what one would expect irrespective of price of room. The rating card in the entitled "tell us what you think" had been left completed by a previous guest. This suggests no attention to detail. Definitely not good value for money. Travelodge do it better than this !!

Don't go there

Unless you are determined to stay right in the centre if temple bar. That is the hotels only redeeming feature. Olld and tired. Room service was slack with missing cutlery and crockery and an extra breakfast that we didn't order. Reception staff were charming but also slack as they forgot to take credit card details. Upon arrival so we ended up paying each time we ordered. Buskers bar was fun with great musicians, but you don't need to stay in the hotel for that. There are lots of other good hotels.. Look around!

Perfect, would recommend

This hotel was perfect for our first stay in Dublin. It was easy to get too from the airport, just catch one of the shuttle buses and get off at trinity college (about 30-35 mins). The Hotel is about as central as you could possibly wish for and surrounded by bars and places to eat, as well as a tesco metro opposite if you want to grab something quick. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable.

GREAT location!

Our stay here was pleasant. There wasn't much that was spectacular about the accomodations, but the location was amazing! Right in the heart of Temple Bar - an energetic, and entertaining area full of pubs, clubs, restaurants, and street performers.
