We came in Dublin for two nights and we nearly booked the whole B&B. We were three teachers with 19 students. Everyboday loved the place because it was in the heart of Dublin. The breakfast was simple but good. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Stayed here for one night and couldnt knock it too much. The hotel was clean the bed was comfy. The rooms are quite small and the shower and bathroom are cramped. Apart from that the staff were friendly and it suited our one night stay.

Obviously the rooms have a modern refurb. I was in room 1 which is at the front of the residence and in their photos it is the black and white one. Stand out feature... a proper mug and recessed lighting. Bug point ... no teaspoon for the lovely mug. The continental breakfast was great too - very healthy. Good job.

Stayed in the basement room for one night.I couldn't believe how quiet it was for the city centre- absolutely no traffic noise. Clean and comfortable and very good breakfast. Amazing value. There are no windows in the room but who needs windows when you want to sleep!

Perfectly located b&b. Small but clean and nicely decorated rooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to everything. Walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants. Was here with my mom and grandmother. They gave us two rooms next to each other even tho we forgot to write and ask for that when booking.

Okay so we had stayed for the Justin Bieber concert on 1st November. Upon arrival it looked like a quite nice place from the outside.

Stayed here for a weekend break and it was a really good stay, the room was very nice and had everything you could need, the shower could have done with some work though but it was a small detail, is some small faults were sorted it would be perfect but for the price and location I could not complain!!
