Very Bad Hotel
I booked a double but was given a twin which beds could not be joined together because in between there was a drawer set which can not be moved. If moved the lamp would have to be put on the carpet because the electricity cable is permanently attached to it. The bad smell greets you as soon as you step out of the lift and gets worse in the room. The furniture is really old, the walls falling apart. This hotel is a no go area and ill advise you to stay away from it. The receptionist was really nice and helpfull. She tried her best.

Don't Change Anything and Spoil the Atmosphere
We will definitely come back here again. Full marks all round. Great location, reasonably priced, friendly and helpful staff and a wide choice in the breakfast menu. Generous portions which are enough to set you up for the day ..... especially if you are a vegetarian. Competitors take note! All in the surrounds of an atmospheric Victorian pub. The bus stop at the hotel door is also another major plus.

Downtown Dublin Style!
If your looking for a primetime location in Downtown , this location is for you. Rustic hotel with a comfortable feel. Walking distance to the many resorts and BARS plus a wonderful breakfast. If you like what I typed, this Style is for you. Enjoy

Nice stay, good service and very helpful reception
We had a very nice and large room. WIFI too slow. Good location and walking distance to most attractions in Dublin. The surroundings can be a bit noise due to pubs with live music every evening. Earplugs for sleeping was available in the room and the music stops no later than 1 am, so not really a problem.

Great location, crappy wifi
Great location, super nice staff and bartender from Brazil. The wifi was crap thought, not usable. We were on the 4th floor, maybe that is why the wifi was crap. Nice place though.
