“Great Craic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

My husband, myself and our two friends have been regular customers at the Dublin City Inn for about 17 years.

Patrick, Velica and Anna are some of the nicest kindest people we have ever met. The food is good, the rooms clean and most of all they are our Irish friends.

Room Tip: The 4th floor is excellent

I want to say that the personal & hotel are great. It's not a 5 star hotel and there never was a question about that. I arrived at 7:00 am in the front clerk, was a great help. There was a open room and I didn't have to park my bag at the desk and wait to later. The room was simple and and very clean. When I had a question about tours and local places they either knew the answer or they knew a local that did. Example - I need to find a certain cigar store, and within a few minutes he had a map, time of operation, and the bus to take. Great Service. Would I stay once more ? No Questions YES

Room Tip: Had a fourth floor room in the rear, only noise was on Monday Trash pick-up around 6:00am

The Dublin City lnn is exactly as advertised. The rooms are small, but the location is amazing. Breakfast was excellent and the staff was wonderful, even allowing us early check in after an overnight flight. They answered questions and sold ticket for some tours. We walked through the city or to the bus tours every day and strolled back from dinner in Temple Bar or the Abby Theater in the evenings. A wonderful value, for those who would rather spend their money dining, touring attractions and shopping.

We visited Dublin for one week, and were very satisfied with Dublin City Inn. The staff was exceptionally friendly, and even allowed an early check-in (very much appreciated as we had been on an overnight flight). The rooms are quite small, but are clean and comfortable, and there are large windows that can be opened for a breeze and to listen to the street-crowd if desired. There is also a communal lounge and outdoor patio available for use. Free wifi is available and dependable. The location is excellent, with the bus, train, and tram station within easy walking distance to the North, and several restaurants, shops, and landmarks on Talbot and the surrounding streets to the South. If you are generously apportioned the small showers may pose a logistical problem, but otherwise the bathroom is quite comfortable. There is breakfast available for a charge, but given the number of grocery stores and corner shops nearby we opted to dine on our own. Overall this establishment is highly recommended for the budget-conscious traveler.

Room Tip: There is not a fitness center or pool available. You may also be bothered by the street noise if yo...

This hotel had small rooms. It was comfortable, yummy breakfast for a charge. The staff was great. They answered any questions I had. The LOCATION IS AMAZING! You can't find anything more centrally located for tour pickups or the bus to and from the airport or just city buses. Everything is THERE! Really happy I ignored many of the reviews!! Don't be scared!

Stayed here for two nights in a single room. The room itself was a nice size, and fairly clean. Very dated. The shower stall is very tiny. I'm not a large person, and I was hitting my elbows on the wall.
The location is good and bad. Good because it's close to the Henry Street shops, Connelly station and a five minute walk to Trinity College. Bad because it's on a weird little street that was questionable after dark. I didn't feel terribly safe as a single female, but was not threatened - if that makes sense. Just watch your surroundings - which you should be doing anyway.
I didn't eat in the hotel, so I cannot comment on the food. But if you go out for breakfast, the Kingfisher on Parnell was quite yummy. There is also a breakfast place at Talbot and O'Connell.
If you're on a budget, this place will do.

I was going to mark this room down even lower than I have.

The room itself is tiny, located on the 1st floor. about a foot wider than the double bed.
The shower is so small, that it'd be impossible to access by a large person. NOTE: I'm not a large person.
The breakfast was assembly line mediocre.
The only really shining light was the exceptionally pleasant receptionist who allowed me to store my luggage there after I checked out, so I didn't have to drag it with me around Dublin.
She was even thoughtful enough to ask me if I wished to use the toilet when I returned.
Top marks to that receptionist.

A message to people who can't sleep, or have disturbed sleep, this is an inner city hotel. Spend a $ and get some earplugs!
