We stayed here whilst attending the Ireland Scotland rugby game 9-11 March 2012. Expected the prices to be high as a result of Dublin being busy this weekend. Booked a triple room online for 3 guys - 348 Euros for two nights which included 2 free breakfasts per day - strange that it wasn't 3 free breakfasts but a maximum of 2 free breakfasts was made clear on their website.
The hotel is well located, about 5 mins walk from O'Connell Street, just by the bus station and easy walking distance to plenty of pubs and eateries. Our room (14) was a triple (double bed and a single bed) with an ensuite. Smallish but clean room which was quiet and adequate although the wifi signal did not reach the room - we had to go to the sitting room or dining room to get the signal but it did work well. Breakfast room was quite small for the number of rooms in the place. On both mornings we had to wait to get a table, but no more than 10 minutes. We later saw that we were meant to book a time for brekkie so perhaps we were to blame. Decent range of food and the cooked breakfast was tasty with plenty of toast and hot drinks.
All the staff were very friendly and amenable at all hours. We were able to leave our luggage once we checked out in a locked room and they booked a taxi for us to the airport (18-20 Euros each way).The 747 airlink bus goes to the nearby bus station so this might be a better option for some.
Overall, given how busy Dublin was this weekend we were happy with our choice of accommodation. It was a bit pricey for what it was but Dublin in general is relatively expensive. We had a great weekend and would consider staying here again when Scotland are next at the Aviva stadium.
