Rugby trip so wasn't expecting anything flash. Clean sheets and basic room spoilt by poor bathroom and TV that didn't work. Great location. Girls at reception very friendly but man (owner?) a bit dour. Fine for a single bloke full of beer and just wanting a bed for the night but not somewhere I'd take my partner, cheap or not.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled with friends

Thank you for you taking the time in sharing your stay on Trip Advisor. I am disappointed to read you were unhappy with some aspects of your stay and not up to the standard we expect and i do apologise.

I do hope this will not deter you from returning to Dublin City Inn at some stage in the future and afford us the opportunity in restoring your faith in the services we provide.

I just returned from spending 2 nights in this hotel with my husband. The location is fantastic, literally 2 min walk to o'connell street, the price for this location should have been far more! There was free parking which is unheard of in dublin. The staff were fantastic, really happy to help and so pleasant. Breakfast was pretty standard but plentiful. I saw some other reviews complained about the noise and this concerned me however, our room faced out to the Main Street and there was noise form traffic and revellers but in the city centre that is to be expected and it did not keeps or my husband awake. All in all I would definitely return.

Myself and a friend stayed here for three nights during the tradfest. Excellent location for getting to O Connelll street and temple bar and although on a busy street there was little noise in the room. Room was clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in the Dublin city inn from 24th January - 27th January. I could not fault this hotel at all. In a perfect location based in talbot street just near o'connell street! Was easy to find once directed by the helpful tour guides based up o'connell street. I got here around 15.00 so was able to check in straight away. I was very happy with the room, it was clean, tidy and more than I could have expected. The receptionist staff are very nice, always welcoming with a smile on their face. My room was cleaned daily.. Where I was provided with new towels and the bed was made immaculately. If I was to come to Dublin again I would 100% stay here again! I requested a street view room and that's what I got.. The windows are large which I really liked.. Get a good view of talbot street and there is also a tesco up the road.. A pound shop type place called dealz and there is a pharmacy a couple doors down.. This is just a few of the places up talbot streets.. If you fancy getting a tattoo like I did there is a tattoo shop across the road called 'dragon tattoo'.. Highly recommended.

A big thank you to all the team at dublin city inn for making my stay as pleasant as possible.

We stayed at Dublin City Inn for two nights and felt it was very good value for money. Honestly, our initial impression upon arrival was skeptical as we were given the key to a room which was already occupied and felt that the alley leading to the parking lot behind the building felt a bit unsafe. However, once we were settled in our correct room, we felt very comfortable throughout the rest of our stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to others. The room was small but functional and clean with a good shower and a nice bed. The parking lot was well secured and easily accessible from inside the hotel. The most appealing aspect of this hotel was, of course, the location. We found that it was an easy walk to the Temple Bar area and a slightly longer but very doable walk to the Guinness Storeroom. We appreciated the convenience of having a Tesco express just across the road and found that there were also a few nice restaurants within just a couple of blocks. We ate next door at Italian Connection and would definitely recommend that guests try it if they are looking for something nearby! The staff members at the front desk were pleasant, friendly, and helpful. While this isn't a luxury hotel, we felt that it was the perfect place to stay for a weekend away in Dublin especially for those like us on a budget. Just as a side note, we were surprised to discover that the entrance to the hotel was a single door wedged between two ground floor businesses on Talbot street - this didn't bother us at all but may be helpful to know when trying to find the place!

Highly recommended. I booked Dublin City inn for a suprise trip in Jan to Dublin for my sisters 21st, I emailed them asking them whether they could leave anything birthday related in her room upon arrival. The manager was extremely responsive with his replies, and pulled out all the stops to make katies birthday as special as possible. For a small extra fee the staff put up banners, left (a good quality) sparkling wine, signed a card from us, and left chocolate and balloons. The manager remembered the request and my sister by name, personally wishing her a happy birthday. Room was lovely and staff were lovely. Room was exceptionally well priced, with only a ten minute walk to all the tourist-y parts of the city.

Room Tip: If it is for a special occassion email the manager and book in advance
