The hotel was very handy for exploring central Dublin and very clean. Room size was ok and was quiet as well. I would recommend this to others wanting a good value hotel in the middle of Dublin. Great visit

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. I am going to recommend this hotel to people I know. The hotel is in a great location, the wifi is very good and the room was very nice. There is a great high powered shower too. I have worked in a 4 star hotel, and this hotel had a lot...

This was my second business trip to this wonderful hotel which is centrally located. Convenient parking at the nearby Christchurch car-park. Great welcome and easy check in. Smal but very comfortable rooms with good matress and towels. It was good to have complementary water. You don't always get this in a 4 star hotel in Ireland! Will be returning soon....

I stayed in this hotel for only one night with a friend after we were in Belfast. I loved the decor in the lobby and in the room. The staff were super friendly and answered all my questions. We stayed in a twin room, and it was very clean with cute bedding. The location is really good. You're a little...

I stayed here a few months ago, big mistake, the staff are disgusting, unprofessional and lacking any social skills, they really scraped the bottom of the barrel finding these characters, the room decor is depressing and they turned off the hot water one morning as well, told the desk about it, and the response was just kind of so what....

It's a great location, lots to do and walking access to all of Temple Bar. However, for a family, it wasn't quite what I expected The pictures are a bit nicer than the apartment. It needs a bit of paint job and a little polish. Many of the lights didn't work and we weren't there long enough to call about...

Lovely hotel and just around the corner from Temple Bar and within a stones throw of the quays. Room was clean and the bed was big. The staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend and and will stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights midweek in late March. The hotel is really well-located, with free wifi, very friendly staff, and good sized rooms. The best part of the stay was the breakfast, which was the best i've ever had in this type of hotel - fresh, lots of choice, and delicious! I would recommend this hotel!

A group if us stayed here for the Ireland v England Rugby Game over St Paddy's Weekend. This meant the price per room was ridiculously expensive c. 800 Euros a night! It is on the West edge of Temple Bar, so very easy to get into where all the happening night life is. Rooms were pretty standard, modern, clean and...
