I arrived at the hotel on Tuesday the 8th of August 2017. Upon arriving to check in at this hotel, I was greeted by the receptionist who then told me in an incredibly rude tone, that the hotel was full, even though my company had confirmed this booking by e mail a number of weeks ago. After about 20 minutes, my booking was found on the computer. My criticism (amongst others) is the attitude of both this member of staff and the "manager" who I spoke to the following day about this incident. At no time was there an apology offered. In general, this hotel is in a very poor state of repair - a number of the dining room chairs are ripped and look shabby; the carpets in room 333 are in need of changing and the bed was missing a 'joining bar' so the bases of the two halves of the bed moved during the night. Overall this hotel needs to either invest in redecorating the rooms, updating the furniture or change its star rating as it is not a 4 star hotel…oh and tell it’s staff to be nice to customers.

I thought I have booked into a four star as the hotel states. To cut a ling story short: 1- Very noisy club/bar middle of the week that goes on till early hours. When we complained, the explaination was that it is from the bar!! 2- There is no insulation and the motoray noise is in your ears throughout the night! 3- The curtains are flimsy and nearly seethrough, the light wakes you up 4:30 am. 4- Restsurant chairs are literally all torn as if they have been scraped off. 5- The area was not very pleasant anyway. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!

An alternative reasonably priced accommodation on the greater Dublin area than in the city centre. We travelled the Airlink 747 from Dublin T1 to Heuston Rail Station and ride the Red Luas Tram line from there to the last stop Tallaght. From there; a 15 minute walk from the tram station across the Tallaght Square to the hotel. While it look a bit aged; our room was clean, tidy with ample pillows, toiletries and in room free hot DIY beverages, ironing board. Wide dinning options around the hotel vicinity

This review is about the tour operator - Just Go! In association with the National Trust - and this hotel that we were 'dumped in, we has been on a 5 night tour covering the north of Ireland and had paid for the additional nights tour and stay in Dublin. We had an excellent hotel and tour in the North This feedback is based on the second hotel of the and the company that placed us there The trip to Dublin was very poorly organized. We didn't know where we were going to be staying until the morning of the trip, we had a 45 minute wait in a service station just before entering the city when we could have been allowed additional free time in Dublin, as it was we only were allowed 1 hour 30 minutes, we could have had longer, we were whisked off to the Plaza hotel, there was an hour and a half before we were fed - the choice - boiled bacon and mash or the sort of chicken curry that a child might make, then a nasty cheap synthetic pudding, our driver had to struggle with the management to get us a breakfast the following morning. We were told that it would be a City hotel it turned out to be a nasty noisy hotel on the outskirts with poor food. The hotel was clean, we did not see any staff members other than our table waiters. The Dublin guide was late and then wittered on for 20 mins before the tour started and then made the driver go the wrong way and then even finished 15 mins early. In comparison to the first part of the holiday the whole day was a shambles - we were treated with no respect, it felt as if we were placed in a clearing house for the hotel allocation and we will not recommend this part of the holiday.

Noisy, frayed upholstery all around, including the couches in the lobby, wallpaper which takes away your sleep, and carpeting that looks older than Dublin itself. Wifi is lousy, unbearably slow. That it is not exactly downtown is clear to anyone who books it, but what you are out to discover is that neither this is remotely close to the standards of a 4* hotel, nor the rooms look remotely similar to what they advertise in their website. More like a cheap roadside motel. Fans of Hitchcock's PSYCHO might find it interesting to check out, but scary to take a shower i.

Hotel has potential BUT it is tired and out of date. Decor is dated carpets ripped, tiles broken , only one lift ,window in my room would not close & contender for the worlds smallest tv Don't stay here. Not great!!

Stayed here on saturday night and would have been better off sleeping in the car as i would have got more sleep and it would have been much cleaner!! Don't bother staying here i f you are looking a nights sleep for the music from the near by bar/nightclub will be sure to keep you awake until the early morning! As for the may as well have been laying on the floor and the 2 pillows provided are about the thickness of a pillow in any other hotel. Honestly i am not one to complain but this hotel is grim! It says no smoking in the rooms but there was a stink of stale smoke in our room 253, wifi is also crap! Hotel is in bad need of a refurbishment as the carpet in that worn in places that there holes near some of the radiators i could list more but i'd be here a while! Clearly the staff are aware of how grim it is as when checking out they never once asked how was our stay etc... i actually can't think of one positive to say about it bar the car park is free.

We had the unfortunate pleasure of staying in this hotel for two nights. The minute you enter the lobby with the collection of mismatched furniture, some of which is torn, you know you are in trouble. Continue your journey, up the stairs with fraying carpet, leading your way to a room that was probably decorated in 1978. Paper thin walls separate you and every other room in the hotel. Hope that the hotel is not hosting a wedding~ that will keep you up until 3:30 AM! The hotel is located 45 minutes by train or 50 euro round trip taxi outside of Dublin. There is a " pub" located in the hotel. It is actually a nightclub for twenty somethings. Don't plan on eating there unless you enjoy sticky tables and horrible food. There are a couple of chain restaurants within walking distance. Why did we stay? There was not a hotel room to be found in Dublin! The one upside to the hotel is the bathroom. It was updated, clean and had a great shower.

We visited this hotel as part of a Just Go Coach holiday. When we were told we were staying at the Plaza we thought wow! What a let down. The check in procedure was actually very good. But that's it. Our room was very tired. There were cobwebs everywhere. There was no tea in the room and the milk was rancid. We went for a drink in the bar before our meal. Nearly all the seats in bar area were either torn or there was no padding at all. The majority of the people returned the meal as it was inedible. We were advised not to venture out at night as the area was rough, which we found out at 3.00am by the drunks and screaming that went on outside the hotel. Best advise is DONT USE this hotel. Certainly not a 4*hotel.

This hotel was not nearly as nice as the pictures indicate. Small, not particularly clean. Staff was neither very helpful nor rude, just kind of present. Corners and little places around the room were dated, moldy, and/or worn down. Good enough, but not really good.
