Excellent hotel and really good value for money- staff are polite and friendly, the rooms are comfortable and clean and the location is also really good! I emailed beforehand to say it was my boyfriend's birthday and they upgraded our room which was really kind and well appreciated. Really impressive would definitely stay here again!

Stayed for one night on business. Check in was very good. Pleasant and helpful receptionist. Very basic room. Not particularly comfortable bed and hard small towels. Good breakfast but overcrowded restaurant and scramble for food. Would use again for business but not for family.

Stayed here on our trip on a bed only basis. We paid extra to have breakfast in the hotel, but if you book directly with the hotel the breakfast is free. The hotel is located just off O'Connell Street and is in quite a good location. Our room was smaller than our friends one but still adequate. The shower/bath tap...

Stayed here for 3 nights as a group of 13. Booked 3 triple rooms and one quadruple. Service was great. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Hotel bar was lovely, we had few drinks there. Location is amazing 10 min walk from temple bar and access to all main bus links etc. Great place.

We had a twin room, which was big enough for two persons, not to mention how clean it was! An excellent choice for our vacation! The location was also very close to the city center, about 5-7 minutes walk to the river Liffey. The staff was very friendly and willing to help us with everything we needed. I would reccomend...

This hotel was booked for one night when my company had our work Christmas Party. The staff are really lovely and the room was spotless. There was tea and coffee making facilities, an ironing board, washing bag, and lots of little extras . The bathroom also had a bathtub to my delight. Comfy bed and a good night sleep!
