Layover Relief

If you have a layover it's a great space. The location and view is wonderful. The room is perfectly nice and you get what you pay for. Wish the bed was not so stiff but that's honestly my only complaint. Great place.

Good value. Good location

We just stayed here for one night and we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and the great view of the city. There was secure parking too which was 8 euros for 24 hrs. There was a buffet breakfast included in our rate and it was plentiful and fresh. Overall a good hotel. Would stay there again.

Excellent starting point for red-eye flights from Dublin airport

The staff could not have been more helpful. There was no desk in my room and sitting at a little coffee table to work was a little uncomfortable but wifi access was easy and free. Residents have to pay €8 for carparking so maybe a reduction to €5 would be good.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

A taxi to the airport costs €15 each way so it's best not to leave your car at the hotel if you're going on a day return business trip - just drive to one of the longterm carparks - 5 mins away at 5.30am with no traffic. and pay circa €9 a day.

a good deal

We only reqlly stayed for a day, the room was a typical "hotel" room, two beds an old television, the rpom didnt really have a view, but it was good for only 50usd a night. The buildin is old and needs some repairs but overal an average hotel in an old classical building. Onething is its distance from city centre but transportation is avaliable.

Nice food and bar staff but room was awful!

Stayed here last weekend, got a great deal online. Asked for a room in the new part of the hotel because I'd read that the old part wasn't very nice. The room we got was awful. There was more rust on the radiator than paint, even less paint on the worn out chairs and the walls were covered in marks and doubt they have been painted in years either. Also there were cracks in the tiles in the bathroom. We ate in the bar that evening, food was lovely and service was quick and friendly. The hotel is on a good bus route to the city centre so location was ideal. It's a pity that the room we stayed in was so horrible. If I could be guaranteed a nicer room I would stay here again. Receptionists could be a bit more friendly & let us know meal times etc... I'd hate to see the "old rooms" after the "new one" we got!

Dont stay here...

So the rooms are super tiny and the hall ways are cramped. Not to mention their 'lift' was a little bigger than a coffin. On the day I left we found a roach scurrying around the room. The shower leaked and started to get the room below us!!!! it was terrible!!! the only thing that was beneficial was the distance to the bus stop.

Try to find different accommodations

This was dreadful. We re-booked the third day and spent $1000 more NOT to be there. Absolutely noisy...far away from town center (and a bus strike) Broken furniture. Overall feeling of not clean. View from room was dreadful, peeling and dirty stucco rail with litter on landing. Did I say NOISY--you can literally hear normal conversations and foodsteps in next room....
