3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Perfect location right outside of Trinity College, room was clean and staff was friendly

discomfort and very small Rooms, uncomfortable . No regular beds. Only beds they have are bunk beds.

Overall the hotel is "ok"... the staff does not help at all parking is not in the hotel is a public parking and is 32€ a day. If you ask for water they tell you that you have to pick it up from the lobby. Wi-fi - NONE and staff does not help. No internet service at all. T.V. Remote has no bateries and the tv does not work properly either.

Great location. 1st floor on the street with no air conditioning. Ear plugs at the night stand were a warning. Perfect location unless you wanted to sleep before 1 AM.

We arrived very early in the morning and the staff made sure, we could get a special room right away. Since we came from New York, we really appreciated it for a small charge extra. The staff was extremely helpful all the time, the room was quiet and a wonderful place to relax and get over the jetlag. We would always return, when going to Dublin

Excellent staff. Early check in after overnight flight from the US. Very clean and... has air conditioning! Excellent breakfast.

Besides the staff and location I didn't love this hotel. The rooms were small with dirty bathrooms and the breakfast bar was very over priced and not good. It was often loud at night due to construction in the area.

Staff was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. They were able to accommodate an unexpected extra guest and were always eager to help with a smile. Room was noisy because it was right on street and next to hotel bar/club, but they give you ear plugs and it was worth the noise for the location! Turning on the AC helped with the noise, but never had a problem drifting off to sleep (without ear plugs). Central location, easily walkable to all of Dublin. Would stay again!

Great hotel and staff. Great breakfast in the morning also.

Easy access to Temple Bar activities. Be ready for the festivities and singing to last into the night. Absolutely excellent staff. Very helpful with room, taxis, and area directions.

Great hotel. Good price, very nice breakfast, free internet, great helpful staff, excellent large rooms (especially for European standards). Location is great, in terms of pubs, restaurants, storae & public transportation. The only, really only cons would be the noise from temple bar area. Loud music & people till late at night, but well, it goes with the territory ...

The hotel rooms are no better than a budget hotel for the price of four star. Rooms were clean, but if you're after some level of luxury look somewhere else.

Nice room, great breakfast. Located right in the middle of the most popular entertainment area. This is both a plus and a minus: you can easily walk to many popular bars, restaurants and sites. But on Friday and Saturday night, the partying goes on till the wee hours right outside your window. Windows are pretty good at sound insulating but you'll still hear the thumping bass. Nonetheless, I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Dublin.

Perfect location for walking to alot of attractions. Very clean hotel. Entertainment /bar and a full resturant with out having leave the hotel. Thank you for a great stay on our vacation.

We were in the heart of temple bar, easy walking distance to so many sites. Hotel staff was very friendly and will help you reserve tours as well. The hotel was clean, stocked with all kinds of amenities, and there is a convenient restaurant downstairs. All in all, it was a great stay and we will stay there again.

A comfortable place for you in walking distance of everything that mayters. Any place you choose to stay in the Temple Bar area carries the risk of some nighttime noise, given the entertainment venues around, but the hotel was quiet enough by late night.

Walking distance to most major attractions. Clean, polite, very charming staff. Will not stay anywhere else.

I would have given a 5 star rating but this hotel is in a noisy area. Not their fault by any means but if you want peace and quiet you will want to make sure you are on the top floor and that your room faces the back of the building - do not get a room facing Fleet street if you need quiet. If you want to be near just about everything then this is the place for you. The service was exceptional, the rooms are comfortable, the staff fantastic. Every person we dealt with was wonderful and helpful. The Temple Bar area is full of shops, pubs and attractions. From the hotel we walked to the Guinness brewery, Trinity College, museums and more. We were able to have lunch and dinner in a different location every night and still walk quickly back to our hotel, many of the places we are were within a 5 minute walk. The location can't be beat. I would stay here again (hopefully I will stay here again soon!) Dublin is a beautiful city and easy to get around on foot. Across from the hotel is a grocery store so picking up extra water and snacks for your travels is convenient.

great location to downtown city centre, enjoyed the temple bar area.

It can be rather loud at night as it is located in the middle of many pubs. The hotel does provide ear plugs in our room anyway! We didn't have any problems sleeping. :)
