I expected some noise from the bar below, as advertised. As a result my booking form clearly stated that I was travelling for work and required a quiet room on a higher floor. If this request couldn't be accommodated you would expect the place to inform you. But no. I was put in the room where my floor was the...

Great experience at the Gate Hotel. Stayed here as business accommodation for a night mid-week. Very unassuming location but deceivingly modern rooms both clean and tidy. The staff Julie & Ash were extremely polite, professional, and knowledgeable; and reception is 24hr - good for piece of mind and security. The location is its great selling point and consequently there is...

Spacious, clean room at a reasonable price. Felt very welcome with complementary tea, coffee & snacks (chips & biscuits). Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Very centrally located. On the corner of Parnell street and O'Connell street. Minutes to bus stops. Next to Tesco and Chapters Bookstore if that's what something you're interested in. The only concern is noise from the street...

On arrival the entire property looks shut down. Don't be fooled! Despite the run-down facade The Gate Hotel suited me perfectly. I was going to a gig in 3Arena and was aware that there would be noise from Fibbers til (late bar) closing time. After the gig I went to watch the rock covers-band that were playing in Fibbers and...

Hello Heather, Thank you for taking your time to write this well defined, detailed and level headed view to our place of business. It is quite refreshing to read into a guests honest look at their stay in our hotel. We got a good laugh at your opening line and have plans to entirely remodel the front of the building...

We just spent 2 nights in this hotel and it was awful. Room extremely cramped and uncomfortable. Steps to get to room. Desk clerks was not helpful. Said it had parking for our rental car but it was blocks away and expensive. The music from rest/bar was so loud we could not sleep. It played until 2:30 am.

For a 1 night stay in Dublin I booked a room in the Gate Hotel. The choice for this hotel was made based on the location and the price. The room itself was big enough, clean, and looked recently updated. The only bad thing about is was the lack of a decent window. All there was is two tiny windows...

On arrival we quickly realised we had made a mistake. On the website it advised some noise on the first floor however the noise was something else. The first room offered was small with black mould in the shower and no windows. We asked to move as the photographs on website were nothing like that. We were moved to a...

We stayed for 3 nights and initially thought it was going to be a terrible stay. The outside of it is a bit grim - lots of shutters, next door to a rock pub on one side and a night club on the other with a big court yard for big pubs at the back. We got a room on...
