To be honest, the price was OK, remembering was just couple of days before St. Patricks. Gardiner st. is one of the busiest and noisiest road in Dublin, many buses, drunk people, junkies fighting (literally fighting) at any time... seems silly but there is not any plug near the bed. what that means, once you get home and you wanna relax with your phone you have to be standed up near a plug... its silly but basic. Bad TV channel the signal is horrible. there is a sink in the room which is handy, but guys, THERE IS NO WATER COMING THRU!I recommend for someone who want to go to Dublin to party, but I do not recommend to anybody who is going thinking is doing some tourism, waking up early etc... there is no lift so if you are carrying big luggages be ready to sweat.
We used this hotel for a business trip to Dublin. It should be more accurately described as a hostel or backpackers hotel. Very expensive at the weekend, cheap mid-week. Only a few rooms have toilets in the room, you have to go up or down floors to a shared toilet. very old buillding with theadbare carpeting.
Comfortable bed, sink and shower - toilet next floor down. Everything was clean. Deadbolt was really small and sort of dangling as one of the two screws was missing - not very secure against a good kick (front door secure with 24 hour attendance though). Only once before have I stayed in a room this small (in Guatemala) - as wide as the double bed, with about a foot of extra space. Between the foot of the bed and the door, enough space to put my backpack on the floor and squat to dig through it. Really cramped but it did the job. I was on the top floor (5th or 6th floor) and breakfast room was in the basement - no elevator so plan to hike. I would recommend doing a little more searching but for Dublin this may be the best deal outside of a hostel.
This is a B&B, so do not expect luxery. Includes full breakfast, so a good deal. The location is very central. Staff were very nice.
The location in dublin is absolutely perfect, its close to a lot of the main sightseeing places but the rooms itself were very small and uncomfortable. Warning, the showers are in the room and they are literally like a closet, there is a glass door so if youre traveling with friends they all have to get out of the room or close their eyes so you can shower. The staff was good and the breakfast was decent. If you don't mind the space and aren't going to be in the hotel a lot I recommend it.
Avondale was cheap and located very close to the temple bar area we were planning on going to. Rooms are tiny, walls are thin, and the shower has low pressure and lukewarm water. If you are needing any kind of luxuries, look elsewhere. If you just want a place to crash that is cheap then Avondale might be for you.
Not the Ritz, but outstanding value for your money. Ideal location, very nice staff and a good breakfast. Rooms are clean and quiet, and the beds are comfortable. Would stay here again without hesitation.
