I really liked that my room was spacious and very comfortable. It was also clean and the air conditioner worked perfectly. The staff was nice and the breakfast was good. If you stay there you need to know that is about 20 mins in walking distance from the city center but you also have the option of taking a taxi or public transportation. Something that I didn’t like is that they were the first hotel in Europe that recommended me to pay with my card in Dollars instead of Euros but this was more expensive since my bank does not charge for foreign transactions and the convention rate offered by their system was high(1.16 instead of 1.12 that was the convention rate at the moment). My advice is to check with your bank first so you don’t make the same mistake as I did. Overall, I really recommend this hotel if you want a nice, safe and comfortable place to stay.

The staff was fantastic and friendly! They made sure that my family and I were well taken care of, and the facilities were lovely.

There is a 25 min walk to the city center but it is well worth it. The hotel is fully upgraded and the staff are amazing and friendly.

we were not impressed. the location was not to our liking. The toilet wasn't working properly and it seems like it is a common problem in the hotel.

The front receptionist, Susan was extremely enthusiastic and helpful. Gave us so much information and went above and beyond. Restaurant food was very good. It was nice neing able to take drinks into our room. And they have a direct taxi button which is convient. I only wish it was closer to the square.

Easy walk to city centre. Very clean and super nice staff. Free parking was also a plus.

Very trendy and clean hotel. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and tasty. The receptionist was super friendly and evev suggested a good place for fish and chips. Bed was very comfortable. About a 10 minute walk to the city center.

nice hotel with everything you need. it is a bit of a walk to the city center, about 30 mins. never been there before, so it was easy to park at the hotel and then walk into town, then able to walk off dinner on the way back

Second time staying at this hotel. Lovely and comfortable. Walking distance to town, about 25-20 mins walk. Bus outside hotel going to town. Wide selection for bteakfadt . microwave would be nice if you want to heat your breakfast a bit note.

The hotel over all was nice and the reason we changed to another hotel was to be nearer to the city center. The reception clerk seemed very uninterested with her job and was exasperated that we didn't know our car registration number when she simply had to say that it was on our rental key.

IN OUR TRAVELS THIS HOTEL IS CLOSE TO BEING A 5 STAR HOTEL. VERY NICE BUFFET BREAKFAST. NOT IN CITY CENTER. BUT GALWAY IS ONE OF THOSE CITIES WHERE YOU CAN BE JUST OUTSIDE AND BE BETTER OFF. TAXI SERVICE IS READLY AVAILABLE AND FOR LESS THAN 7 EUROS YOUR IN THE LATIN QUARTER. DRIVING IN GALWAY CITY CENTER IS WILD, LOONY, AND SLOW, TOO MANY TRAFFIC JAMS, SO TAKE A CAB YOUR BETTER OFF!! WiFi IS GREAT AT THIS HOTEL. THE STAFF IS FRIENDLY AND VERY HELPFUL, MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS THAT THEY DONT GIVE WASH TOWELS. KINDA SILLY BECAUSE THEY GIVE YOU BATHING GEL AND NO TOWEL TO USE THE GEL..WHEN I ASKED THE FRONT DESK, I WAS TOLD BY THE YOUNG LADY THAT WASH TOWELS ARE NOT USED IN THE U.K. . AND GUESS WHAT SHE WAS WRONG, IT WAS THE ONLY HOTEL IN IRELAND AND THE UK THAT DID NOT PROVIDE A WASH TOWEL. WHEN YOUR IN SUCH A WONDERFUL ROOM YOU KINDA CAN FORGIVE THAT OVERSIGHT ON THEIR PART.

The hotel has good access to roads in and out of Galway, but not too far away from the city center and shopping... Very convenient and friendly staff.

Hotel was very nice. Stayed at hotels and BnB's while in Europe. This location was relaxing but pricey and not very close to places we wanted to be. Would recommend but be prepared to pay.
