Recent guest reviews

Stayed four nights here. The room was dirty and very stuffy could not open the window more than a few inches. The carpets were dirty and stained. We also had the noise of the hotel next door every night, went on till 4am one night, loud music and shouting. Breakfast awful very basic continental style, toast and Jam and some dried up cheese slices. This cost us over £400 and it wasnt worth half of that.

Lovely hotel and staff, room comfortable and great position to reach very easily the center. Well connected with all the services, included the bus for the airport. Continental breakfast. I definetely recommend this hotel!

Stuffy, old as ww 2 ! Everything broken, tiles, carpet, toilet. Worst hotel ever! And not cheap! Lock never worked! No elecatir. Wibdows dont open. Worst hotel ever! Bed. Hardly fit into the room. Hairdrier ok

The Inn has dirty carpets everywhere, they smell like piss. Rooms are very small and full of mold. Cracked and uneven tiles in the bathroom, uneven floor and steps going to the rooms. No elevator. Every time we came back to the Inn after our tour there was not one to allow us in. The receptionist was not at her desk and we had to wait more than 10 minutes for him to open the door. Not recommended.

My partner and I stayed at the Leeson Inn for one night after visiting family in Dublin. We were simply after a pleasant bed for the night at a reasonable price, unfortunately we got neither. For the amount we paid I expected more even down to basic cleanliness. The room we were allocated contained 4 single beds which was odd given there was just the 2 of us, but that aside all 4 beds were filthy. Mattresses and duvets were stained, the carpet was filthy, the room didn't look to have seen a duster in sometime, likewise the bathroom was dirty and with exposed wiring. To add to the general discomfort, there was an unpleasant smell in the room and the beds were incredibly uncomfortable. There were 2 skylights in the roof which were quite frankly disgusting and had no blind or cover so you were up with the sun whether you liked it or not. The room was seriously lacking in facilities, there was a tiny TV on the wall and a table with some tea and coffee tucked in a very dark corner of the room, a broken wardrobe and a desk that had seen better days. All in all, we did not enjoy our stay and the cost was not low enough to lower our expectations in line with what we got.

Chose this hotel for its cheap price. Was worried after booking from seeing some other reviews. The hotel was in a good location with a bus stop 2 minutes walk away to take you directly to and from the airport (Leeson street lower). We had a warm welcome on arrival and the check in process was quick. Our room was very clean and had a tv, tea and coffee facilities and a hairdryer. The bathroom was also very clean with plenty of towels. Our room was facing the road which I was worried about as I am an extremely light sleeper, even with earplugs. Both myself and my friend had 3 very good nights sleep and were not disturbed by the noise. If you are a light sleeper take some ear plugs just in case. The beds were very comfy and there were spare pillows in the room. We did not have breakfast in the hotel. Next to the hotel is a small cafe which was very good and reasonably priced. There is also a small shop/cafe at the end of the road which sells lots of pastries. The location was great - very close to St Stephen’s green park and grafton street. Temple bar took about 20 mins to walk to or a taxi was about €8 at night. Harcourt street is also very close by which has a range of bars and clubs. I would definitely stay here again if visiting Dublin and wanted a place to sleep that was basic, but good value for money.

We spent one night here over the Bank Holiday weekend and it was enough. The hotel is very run down, I don't think there is one wall that does not have a crack in it and every ceiling has a water marks on it. But the road noise is the worse, I think we got two hours sleep all night. if you want a stay in Dublin on the cheap and you don't need anything fancy, this is your place.

Warm greeting from the reception and very helpful. Hotel room is very old fashion, basic. Bad point is you can hear the noise from outside ie cars due to the old windows. Great location. Overall good for the price

Highly recommended. I was slightly anxious about staying here when I read some of the previous reviews. I expected it to be shabby. It wasn't. I expected it to be dirty. It wasn't. I shared a lovely, well-appointed twin room with my daughter. The bathroom was large and there was a good shower. It's very close to St Stephen's Green and walking distance to Temple Bar and Dublin Castle. I will definitely stay here again if I can. I think the reasons that this hotel is so cheap are: i) There's no lift. We were on the second floor, and this could be a drag if you're not fit. ii) There is some noise from the street - traffic and revellers - which is the disadvantage of a central location. Neither of these things bothered me, but are worth bearing in mind. Top tip: opt out of the continental breakfast and go to the basement café in the same building.

This is a tall five storey Georgian hotel. I say this as we were on the top floor and there are no lifts. Room was small but clean. Shower was ancient but for a couple of nights did the job. Breakfast down in the basement not worth doing as very basic. Use for a cheap 2 nighter. Buses regular outside, taxi 12 euros to temple bar
