“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed st Kelly's for a week when we visited Dublin and it was fantastic! The room was minimalist, but it was large, clean and bright. More importantly the bar/restaurant attached (called the bar with no name) to the hotel is a great spot, serving yummy food and drink and is filled with a great crowd daily. Its the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing and is just steps away from your room so you don't have to worry about treking home! On top of that, all of the staff at Kelly's are kind and helpful and the complimentary breakfast is great!

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

The location of this hotel cannot be beat - very central and walking distance to most attractions. There is an amazing restaurant and bar connected with the hotel. Due to the bar, it can be very noisy at night - they provide you with earplugs to help with it. I thought the toiletries provided in the room were great, much nicer than many other hotels at this pricepoint, that sort of thing really makes a difference. Probably would not stay in this hotel due to the noise, but others may not find it that bad.

Room Tip: Room 5 was very noisy, maybe the others aren't so bad.

Great location, very clean, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, nice breakfast,but can be noisy,stayed twice, and on last occasion had to complain about noise because the music went on way after bar closed at 12am, however, next night, it was quiet, will return for a basic good value break, but not for luxury.

Room Tip: Ask for quiet room, preferably a high floor

The location and price are unbeatable. It can be noisy (you're staying in the bar district, after all), but with the hotel-provided earplugs, I slept soundly. Also, the staff were friendly and easygoing. I'd stay again. It's clean and simple, but sometimes that's all you want. I can't think of a better deal in all of Dublin.

The hotel has a great design and is located pretty close to the Temple Bar and the center in general. The only problem of the room was that on Friday/Saturday the noise from the bar below was extreme - until 2:30. So if you are out till that late, no problem! Hotel Personnel was great and very friendly.

Stayed Sunday and Monday night, love the quirkiness of the hotel and yes no lift but, it's not the end of the word, it's works off some of the fabulous food around the area! Room was spacious and stark, which I love the minimalism and the beds are so comfortable, I've stayed there twice and each time we adored the beds. Yes there is noise From the street, but there are ear plugs provided if needed, I sleep like a log thank god. It is exceptionally good value for what you are getting, you can't expect five star on a shoe string. Breakfast was perfect for continential, freshly made fruit salad was delicious. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I had a superior room, I would definitely take one again, ask for the one directly over reception, o...

Ear plugs are provided! SERIOUSLY!

Photos placed on here by others look ok but in reality the cracks have been painted over! Shower room is in the cuboard and the sink had a massive crack straight through it. Superficially done up - badly!

Receptionist even paid us a visit in our locked room (good job we were in pajamas).

Known as the Gay area, which did not bother us but it may others.

Visited February 2012

Room Tip: Not Grafton or Kellys and you should be ok!
