Nice hotel, made better by its location. It's really close to the highlights of Dublin including Trinity College, Grafton St, etc. Only downside is if you have a street facing room it's a bit loud, recommend bringing earplugs.

Dear Brittanydip Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our hotel, I was delighted you had a positive experience and found our location to be convenient. One of the side effects of being situated in the city center can be the occasional noise from outside. Fortunately we do have rooms that face away from the street which are significantly quieter...

The location of the hotel is great. It is within walking distance of the city centre and all the fantastic sights Dublin has to offer. The hotel is however, a little tired and in need of modernisation. Our room was comfortable enough and comes with all the basics you need for a few nights away. That is about as good...

I spent one night here last week and was more than happy with my stay. The outside and the lobby were spotless with gleaming brass bannisters and highly polished wood. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, happy to respond to enquiries and book taxis. When I asked if there was a vending machine in the hotel the receptionist explained...

Clean, comfortable rooms, good wifi. Good location for walking into the city centre. Breakfast was OK but rather bland and same each morning. Oscars bar and kitchen was closed throughout our 3 day visit which was disappointing.

The distance to the centre of Dublin is 10-15 minutes walk. So not too far. You can park the car in a private garage within a few minutes walk. Go first to the hotel and ask for parking. The rooms are cosy but old. The bed we had (room 210) was very big, perfect. Everything you need was in the...
