We stayed here for Mother's day and on arrival we noticed the deadly smell in the lobby & throughout the hotel. We got to our room & it was ice cold & we couldn't get the lamps to work. We looked for the plugs to discover a socket hanging off the wall which was dangerous and unsafe. I complained to... More

Very comfortable hotel & great selection for breakfast unfortunately the residents bar closes far too early, you can order drinks from room service but you pay extra & cannot use the bar / lounge to drink them..very disappointing . Some German tourists not impressed ( it was St Patrick's week !)

We checked in the evening before arriving, so that when we arrived we went straight to the car park. The attendant was very helpful and gave us an envelope with our room key and car parking ticket. Very impressed with this service

Our room was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean by... More

I love this hotel, it's full of old world charm and located right in the centre of the city. There is a car park attached which is another great advantage. Although we never used the car as everything we needed was within walking distance. The staff were friendly and helpful and our room was lovely. Considering everything including price, this... More

Fabolous fantastic time honoured hotel right in the city centre of Dublin! Good price performance ratio. The staff is very friendly and efficient, the hotel is clean and very lovely. Big room with nice refurbished bathroom. Very quiet. Nice breakfast buffet with good variety to choose from. Lovely bar with yummy food and good drinks.
