After reading the recent reviews I was very concerned about staying at this guesthouse but I need not have worried, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we stayed with friends and our rooms were both large with the biggest and most comfortable bed I have ever seen, we also had a single bed. It was spotless, we had a...

Room is extremly small, nicely decorated but no wardrobe. It is in a VERY BAD area and would most definatley discoutage anyone travelling on their own from venturing here. Receptionist did not seem to understand a lot of what I was saying. But she was friendly. Car parking is extra and is is a VERY VERY SCARY location. Porter was...

Whoever runs this place needs to give it over to someone who will do better. Several reviews here mention the beds being comfortable. TRUE! And the location isn't that bad, just a five minute walk from the main drag and ten minutes from Temple Bar. That's all to the good. But the staff were completely unable to help with anything--even...

Things needed fixing in the shower. Got a really tiny room. The hotel can get noisy because of the squeaky floor. Breakfast is 8€ , the pastries and bread were not fresh. The room was clean though, which id a positive point. Not far from the center.

If you've not stayed in a half way house ... this feels like your chance. The rooms are strangely home to 3 beds ... a double and a twin, when one queen would have been better. All the beds make the room feel more like a dormitory than a hotel. The shower on the 4th floor was horrible. I could...

Good location, easy to find when getting off the airport bus. Within walking distance to all major attractions and train station. Clean, comfortable, good in room amenities such as tea, coffee and free bottled water. There is also a TV, but not many channels (although it’s not like we all stay in to watch TV when in another country). Free...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind review and score. We really appreciate you sharing this with others here on Tripadvisor. It was great to read all the positive things you had to say about our guesthouse, location and staff. This is what we feel seperates us from other guesthouses in the city centre.

I booked here and I had not great expectations and it seemed to good to be true (at that price, so close to O Connell Street). The price was low probably beacuse it was low season but my room was excellent and with free amenities you usually don't get in B&B (free water, candies). Location was excellent, staff kind and...

The hotel, or better said guesthouse is quite pleasant and the personal is top. However, there are two things that I disliked here: first, the offer I found was like "wooow, EUR 79 instead of EUR 200!"; a great deal. Second, some of the pictures make you believe your stepping into a modern hotel, whereas it is a ell conserved...
