What a great hotel. Situated nicely on O'Connell Street. Only a short walk to Temple Bar area. Very clean rooms with everything you need. Friendly efficient staff too. I will definitely be staying here again.

Can't fault the location and ease of walking to local attractions and popular areas. Booked the small double room which was very good value. Staff were friendly and breakfast deal was good for the variety on offer. The Airlink Express bus to Dublin airport stops right across from the front door.

The rooms was small compared to American rooms but it was very nice for the price. The staff was professional and friendly. If I come back to Dublin I would likely come back here. It is centrally located near all the tour buses and other pick ups.

So easy walking distance to shops, pubs, restaurants, and movie cinema, including temple bar. Room and bathroom very clean. Bathroom was like on a cruise ship, even though small, I didn't need anything bigger due to length of my...

Loved this hotel and would stay again. It was close to stop 1 of the red hop on hop off buses. The price was reasonable. The beds were very comfortable and it was a central location near the shops. The breakfast was plentiful and fine. Would recommend for a sight seeing stay
