Older but charming

We enjoyed staying here, and our room was comfortable, clean, and quiet. It was a convenient place for tour bus pick-up, but a long walk to most of the attractions. Lucky for us, we enjoyed the walks.

Great Location...but...

Gave 2 seniors a room down a long hallway that was furthest from the elevators. The bed was extremely hard, uncomfortable and small (only full not queen) with pillows that were flat as a pancake. Every morning noisy birds outside our window would wake us up at the crack of dawn. BUT....the hotel IS in a great location.

No A/C, poor service

We happened to stay here during warm weather. The room was very very hot and there was no air conditioning. We called 3x before we got a fan. Our room looked out to another building so there was no air circulation through the windows. The towel heater would not turn off. We called several times, but noone showed up to fix it. There were no wash cloths. the blow dryer did not work. The in room coffee was instant... Would not go back.

Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Dublin.

Classy but comfortable hotel. All staff very polite, bar staff super-friendly. Perfectly situated in the thick of things. Cannot say anything negative about this hotel.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Forget taxis to/from hotel. Get a coach from the airport - it stops immediately outside hotel, pick-up is directly across the road and runs every 15 mins (cost 7 euros each way).
