Very Good 8.4 From 2,470 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect location!
This hotel was in a perfect location for us -- near the GPO, the Abbey Theatre, the Writers Museum, and most of the other activities we had planned. It's also near the Luas stop, and there's a Tesco about two blocks away. The room was quite comfortable and had a good firm bed. One caution: the listing says "laundry facilities" and "laundry service", but actually they have only a laundry service. Drop off laundry in the evening and it's returned the following afternoon, 10 Euros for 5 kg. There is no self-service laundry room in the hotel, though we were told there is a launderette 3 minutes' walk from the hotel. (We decided to use the service; they did a good job.)

Good location, Nice hotel. Clean. Booked a standard room but was given a "small" standard room. We complained about the size of the room after one nite and was moved to a standard room. Standard a little larger than a small standard, but both rooms are very cramped.

Very nice place to stay in Dublin. It's within walking distance of lots of shops, bars and restaurants. The room was very tiny and we couldn't get wifi unless we went down to the lobby. One of the staff members at the check in desk was very friendly and went out of her way to help with any questions we had.

Dublin downtown.
It was a great place to stay, except for the smokers allowed to stand, blocking some of the entrances.

Comfortable hotel- very conveniently located
This hotel is very conveniently located for seeing Dublin. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the service was good and the breakfast was great- hot buffet. Some rooms are quite small and have interior (courtyard) views. But they also have larger rooms - I think you get what you pay for.

Hotel was perfectly fine, front desk was helpful when I needed, central to just about everywhere I needed to go

Hotel is well situated — easy to walk to all the major landmarks. Room is tiny, but we don’t need anything fancy. Fairly quiet, bathroom was nice . Parking across the road for 13 euros overnight in a large car park that felt secure . Would stay again
