this hotel is in a great location, but the rooms need help stains everywhere mold in bathrooms no wifi in room. Lobby computer just eats your money and never prints. Staff was nice at check in. There star rating is off it should be closer too a 2 maybe maybe a 3.

Well located in the heart of Dublin. Just 5mn from Grafton and 10 from Trinity... However, the hotel is not in the level. No wifi in rooms (only in the lobby), bathroom sink blocked, only 2 lights for the whole room, dirty (bathroom, glasses etc.) and really old power point. A refurbishment is really needed! Price expensive for the service...

I stayed as a single for one night in February . There were two female staff on duty who were very responsive to a few requests I had. I was delighted with the room and the bed was not only enormous it was incredibly comfortable . I love the decor and found the room very cosy and inviting .i read...

Had some manager accuse me of setting a fire extinguisher off . The police arrested my friend and I was then blackmailed by the manager to pay 100 euros before he made the call to the police to get my friend released. The rooms are cold and dirty and well dated. I've seen better dog kennels

Well-located, but this hotel is in dire need of a large amount of investment - the rooms are shabby and very tired. Bathroom was mouldy, the carpets, curtains and furniture permanently stained. The bed sagged in the middle and needed replacing, ironing board cover ripped, lampshades ripped. But worst by far was the complete lack of sound proofing - so...

Stayed here over the Christmas and was unimpressed. The place was tired and quite rundown. Cleaning standards were very low both in the common space and the rooms. The bed in our room should have changed a long time ago. Badly needs investment

We selected this Hotel as it was one of the few available in the city centre with smoking rooms as my wife is a smoker. The location is excellent very close to Grafton Street and the Gaiety theatre and the staff were very friendly and helpful. That however is where the positives end. The rooms themselves appear worn and in...

Stayed here for three nights and it was just what we needed. The location was fantastic, a 5-10 minute walk to temple bar with some nice pubs, restaurants and shops on the way. The hotel is a bit old but that's part of it's charm, everything worked fine. We recommended this hotel to a friend and they had a great...

You will need ear plugs to stay here. Perfect location. Clean sheets and towels but the interior including the wall-to-wall carpet and furniture were very worn out. Okay for a weekend stay. The breakfast was bad, they have much better alternatives on the other side of the street. The staff in the reception were nice. One of them offered to...

This is certainly a comfortable place to stay in centre of town and good value for money.decor is rather old fashioned but very clean and comfortable. Friendly, efficient polite and helpful staff. Can be a little noisy early in the morning from the street if you are at the front of the hotel as the city wakes up to a...
