My room was so small I couldn't fully open the bathroom doors. It was clean and tidy. It was a bit noisy at night due to windows on the busy street. It doesn't offer much and I would say i's a bit pricy for what it offers. It is quite near the center though.

I stayed here this weekend for my Mums birthday! I booked it through Expedia where it says the hotel offers 'designer toiletries'. We did not buy these as we only had hand luggage. When I arrived to the room, there were no such toiletries and when I asked, they denied offering them and gave us a bar of soap. So...

This is definitely one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. Smelled like a sewer when you walked in. Room door stuck, bathroom door wouldn't close & bathroom ceiling covered in mould. The carpet in reception was filthy & the room was tiny. Very overpriced for what you get .Bad value &I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Spent two nights here, 31st Aug to 1st Sept '12. Not the best hotel in the world but not the worst. The room was small but clean with fresh bedding both days on a very comfortable bed. The en suite was adequate and spotless white towels. I booked it through hotels 4 U, who are brilliant and cheaper then the...

Having read some of the negative comments prior to my stay at the Leeson Hotel I was a bit concerned. However, my fears were unfounded as the place was far better than I expected. The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. The en suite facilities were excellent. Our rooms were cleaned and towels changed everyday. Yes the TV was...

I recently stayed here for two nights during a weekend get away trip. The location is very good, about 5 mins walk from St Stevens Green which is a lovely park, walking through the park to the other side brings you out at the top of Grafton Street which is the top of the 'commercial' type high street, and then...

We were looking for a budget hotel that was central: this came out very cheap on late bookings.com and we have no regrets. However, there are steps to climb to get into the front door and there are few frills. But the room was clean and surprisingly well insulated from traffic noise ( triple glazed window). I guess you get...

I booked this Hotel as it was conveniently located for the National Concert Hall however I wouldn't have done so if I had read the negative reports and seen the pictures of dirt/mould before doing booking and I'm glad I didn't. I've stayed in a lot of Hotels and B&Bs and this is nowhere near as bad as what people...

“Lower rooms may be better- I'm not sure. Best of all, go elsewhere.”
  • The toilet and shower. Shocking bathroom.
  • The bed. Clean and good sized: easily the best thing in the hotel.
  • Entrance: door on right, toilet on left. The toilet is tiny.
  • The table and sink, in the room. The sink is NOT in the bathroom.
