“Faulty Towers!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Stayed there just one night with a group of 17 students. They overcharged us, there was water leaking from the ceiling in 2 rooms, it said "full Irish breakfast" but you had to choose just one dish from a menu. Unfriendly staff, difficult to sleep as they played music very loud until 0200.

I forgot my toiltry bag (with my engagement ring, golden...) and mailed them the day after, but they didn´t send it even if promised to pay in advance.
Anyway, it was cheaper then most of the other alternatives, but you get what pay for!

I had a very nice and pleasant stay at this hotel. It was very reasonably priced and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were immaculate as well as the linens. The staff is very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so if you have a large piece of luggage, you may want a room on the second f...

This hotel is in a great location only a short walk away from Temple bar and surrounding shops. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We were greeted by an extremely friendly receptionist and given information on all the local attractions to take up our time during our stay. Will definitely be back again on next visit to temple bar!!!

I arrived with my wife on the 5th December 2013 and were greeted with a very nice and helpful receptionist . The room was very clean and tidy . The heat was exceptional and the breakfast was marvellous . Overall I would rate this place as Excellent especially with the attitude of the staff, first class.

Room Tip: The room for us was to the front and although it was beside the main road, it was very quiet.
