Bring earplugs :)

Excellent value, location and friendly staff. However there were weddings on both nights I stayed and it was extremely noisy.

A trip back home to see Family

As it was a trip back home, we had a very busy schedule, fitting in different members of my family. Everything was great except one thing, which, actually was quite important to us. The hot water for the showers was on a timer. We managed to secure a 2 hour gap between visits so came back to the hotel to freshen up, only to find out that it was turned off. I was disappointed as we were not advised of this, and as our schedule was so busy, had to leave for our next visit without having had a shower for 2 days! It was a 'big' thing at the time, my partner wasn't happy at all! Apart from that, everything was great, if you can handle the no hot water at certain times!

Great value and amenities

Very good location if you are flying in on a short trip. The location is perfectly situated between airport and city. Public transport is really easy and the drivers are helpful. Staff was very pleasant and they allowed for an early check in (HUGE plus!!!). The hotel is super charming with a great pool and hot tub which should be open later. This was a big amenity for me so check times of operation if it's important. The rooms were nice but the wallpaper, carpet, bed, and bedding needs updating. The bedding at the least would be a cheap and easy way to make the room a lot better, but I'm a traveler who often stays at hostels and pays more than this overall great place. The bar is really nice and usually quite full with decent bar food and reasonable prices. Buffet breakfast was also a good deal. I would highly re omens this place to someone who likes a good value, great amenities and are NOT fussy about updated and pristine rooms.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you plan on public transport and get confused at all, don't hesitate to ask bus drivers or anyone next to you. Everyone is super friendly and usually helpful. Go to main bus downtown on O' Connel to get schedules, maps, and passes

Return Visit

Our first stay was great so we booked 2 more nights at the end of our trip. Was a completely different experience. Wifi barely worked in the room. Ordering room service was an unnecessarily difficult ordeal (was told to call back twice & they didn't have a proper menu available. Turns out food was terrible anyway.) They put us in a room with no heat, we were changed promptly, but was just completely unlike our first, pleasant stay.

Great fitness Center

Rooms are basic, wifi worked well in our room (3rd floor back corner). But the pool, sauna & jacuzzi were the highlights!

Close to Airport & City Center

Room was very outdated, but extremely inexpensive considering other options. Pool, hot tub & gym are great pluses. Is a 10 min drive to the airport or the city center, less than 15 euros depending on where you're going. Wifi worked pretty well in the rooms. Parking is 6 euros per day.

Bad

Having stayed before (twice) things have gone downhill. Did not have room when I arrived, had to wait hour. Did not get room as booked. It was cold and heat was not turned on until 8PM. Window was open one day and it was really cold. Was told they would send a spaceheater up but it did not arrive until next day. Won't be staying here again.

Awful experience

I booked this hotel last minute for friends as their father is extremely ill in a hospital nearby. I am disgusted at the staff and their attitude towards my friends. They were ignorant and unhelpful. They need to have training on how to deal with customers.
