This is a basic, hostel-style hotel. Our room was clean and what we expected, and the staff helpful. Our only complaint is that the water pressure in the shower was very weak, and this problem was not fixed even though we complained about it the first day of a five-day stay.

Stayed last year and got a pleasant surprise, booked in advance this year and managed to get a en suite bathroom instead of a shared one, we were on the ground floor and wished we'd gone for what we had last time, it was really quite noisy with doors slamming and people going for breakfast, the room looked like it...

This is an unusual spot. It's larger than a B&B but it offers very basic B&B accommodation. It lacks the charm and personal touch that a B&B usually offers. For oversea's visitors it doesn't offer the "Céad Mile Fáilte" that Ireland raves about. Rooms clean, wifi free. Very basic.

Surprised at the ratings for this place. We paid about 113 euros/night and our room was barely adequate. Tiny, charmless room with moldy bathroom. One of the worst showers ever, and we travel a lot. Absurd tv. No desk. No toiletries except hand soap for the bathroom sink. The staff is nice, breakfast is fine, Rathgar is sweet, quiet, and...

Dublin hotels are pricey so this place may not be out of line charging over 100 euros/ night, but you are not going to get much in the way of amenities. The room is small, no chairs for example. The wifi was very slow or nonexistent. And if you are trying to access the city centre you will be 30-40...

First thing that you'll notice about this place is that you will not know if you are at your destination if you are searching the streets for its name and not the address. You have to come up to the door to see a few small stickers labeled on the window. The place is very simple but adorable. It is...

For €120 you'd expect a better standard of decor. They've added a bit of colourful wallpaper here and there but the finish of the rooms isn't good. The headboard of the bed came away when I sat up in the morning. It's a beautiful building no doubt but needs some investment to justify being more than €80 a night.

The hotel is quite nice. Nothing special but the per night prices are fair and the rooms are clean. Within a 5 minute walk you got quite a lot of very good pubs or you can Uber or take the bus which stops next to the hotel to get into the city which takes about 10 to 15 minutes

I booked with them, to visit Ireland, to lay my mothers ashes to rest with her family. So, a stressful time for me anyway. I was then messed about by them completely and as there are 5 in my family, I ended up with only 4 beds and I was going to have to sleep in the car! They also...
