Room was really basic & stank of paint, a single bed and 2 single beds pushed together to form a double which you fell down the middle of if you rolled over in the night. There was no fridge. There was a chair and a small table that had a kettle on it with coffee/tea. There was no cups to use though. TV was small but at least there was a virgin box all be it the picture quality was terrible. Bathroom was a decent size, shower was ok but the bath panel was hanging off and it looked minging behind it.
Main door of the hotel doesn’t close properly so anyone can wander in at all hours. Had some guy at my door at 4am while I was staying there looking for a grinder hookup. Room walls were also paper thin so you can hear everything going on in the surrounding rooms.
Restaurant was also closed for refurb and was unusable so although we booked the room with breakfast we were told it wasn’t available although the pub would give us a small discount if we paid to use that. No refund was offered.
Personal opinion, look elsewhere. There are much better options around the same area for the same price. I won’t be returning here as you can possibly imagine.
Good fast friendly check in and out. Had a lovely warm clean room. Nice bathroom with electric shower. A flat screen tv with a great choice of channels. Stayed one night and had a lovely stay. Asked for a quite room and got one. Will definitely stay there again.
I was getting a little concerned about the range of reviews this place was getting but have to say I saw little of the negatives some folks were reporting
The location is excellent, it can be hard to spot the door in to the hotel as its seems shared with the Plunket Bar... once found, you enter a narrow corridor and go up the stairs to a tiny little reception akin to a takeaway hatch! I got room 203 and it was facing on to the dreaded roof with air con units. The room itself was a handy size, spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. Given the time of year I guess, there was no air con noise or foot traffic and I slept like a log! The wifi worked fine.
It's an old building, that's a fact. That won't suit everyone but I paid €80 for a single night and the location was 5 minutes walk from an exam centre I needed to be at. 5 mins walk would have you in Temple Bar, in 2-3 minutes you can be on the Luas, O'Connell Street and a couple of shopping centres... also some Spar shops for grabbing snacks as needed. I did see a door for what looked like a drug treatment centre like some people pointed out but I never felt unsafe, there's a lot of people around.
It was perfect for what I needed, great location!
I was actually dreading coming to stay at this hotel due to the reviews I’ve read by some people on Trip Advisor. And, their reviews couldn’t be more... WRONG. The hotel is a little difficult to find, but the hotel itself is nice and our room was clean, comfortable, spacious and everything was working. The bed was big and had a bouncy and comfortable mattress. The bathroom was clean, tidy with clean towels provided as well as shampoo and soap. And, we had Virgin Media TV in our room. Check-in and check-out was quick and easy and the location of the hotel is ideal. The bar underneath the hotel was closed for refurbishment during my stay. Me and my partner only stayed for one night, but we’d stay at this hotel for longer, the next time we visit Dublin. P.S. Don’t believe the reviews that give this hotel a bad review, they’re very exaggerated!
I stayed at the abbey hotel last night with my disabled daughter as we had a late hospital appointment yesterday and an early hospital appointment this morn, it was the worst hotel iv ever stayed in , the tv was broke and I was informed it wouldn’t be fixed , the window wouldn’t close properly and there was cold coming into the room all night , the room was dirty, the bathroom was actually filthy dirty and the shower rail was encrusted with rust and dirt, there was a check in slip from the last guest in the room so it’s doubtful it was cleaned, I barely slept as I didn’t feel safe and then they started drilling at 7.10 this morning so we checked out at 8 this morning so we could go into town to eat before our next hospital appointment , when I complained the guy on reception which was a hatch in the wall smiled and said I know so sorry , it was vile I felt dirty leaving this hotel and have requested a refund tru booking .com
