Stayed for one night on business. Check in was very good. Pleasant and helpful receptionist. Very basic room. Not particularly comfortable bed and hard small towels. Good breakfast but overcrowded restaurant and scramble for food. Would use again for business but not for family.

Stayed here on our trip on a bed only basis. We paid extra to have breakfast in the hotel, but if you book directly with the hotel the breakfast is free. The hotel is located just off O'Connell Street and is in quite a good location. Our room was smaller than our friends one but still adequate. The shower/bath tap...

We had a twin room, which was big enough for two persons, not to mention how clean it was! An excellent choice for our vacation! The location was also very close to the city center, about 5-7 minutes walk to the river Liffey. The staff was very friendly and willing to help us with everything we needed. I would reccomend...

This hotel was booked for one night when my company had our work Christmas Party. The staff are really lovely and the room was spotless. There was tea and coffee making facilities, an ironing board, washing bag, and lots of little extras . The bathroom also had a bathtub to my delight. Comfy bed and a good night sleep!

Very pleasant stay in this lovely, well ran hotel which is in an excellent location. Only slightly negative was that we were in a room at the back of the hotel and there was noise from neighbouring pubs well into the early hours of the morning. Reception were brilliant and offered a change of room which we declined.

I booked this hotel direct and got a great deal including free breakfast. I booked a twin room but asked if possible to have a larger room to make it easier for my Mum who was coming with me. I also advised that we would be arriving in Dublin early and an early check in would be appreciated if possible....
