Stayed here for 3 nights mid January 2017. It's about 30mins from airport via airbus 474 which costs 6E one way. It stops right outside the hotel just before the bus turns onto O'connell Street. The location of the hotel is fantastic. Right off O'connell Street so in the heart of all shops and bars. About 7mins walk to temple...

Stayed as a group, bedrooms all clean & big enough. Staff were extremely helpful & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice. Really good position, just off O'Connell Street & easy walking distance to Temple Bar.

However, the club next door is EXTREMELY loud until early in the morning. We were lucky in that the Wi-Fi in our section of the hotel stopped working,...

The hotel is located just few steps from the airport bus stop and few minutes from one of the main shopping street. The rooms are neat and cozy. All these, together with the price, make this hotel the great option.

The location of the hotel is perfect! It's an easy walk to O'Connell street, Temple Bar and a short cab ride to anywhere else in the city. As other reviewers stated, the hop on hop off buses are a block away and it's easy to access them and a great way to see the city. We were able to check...
