As Dublin has the Oldest Pub the smallest Pub THIS hotel certainly classifies as the WORST Hotel in Dublin.Everything from TV remote to intercom to the flush of the Toilet was broken.Noise rooms drunk and loud people in the hallway. Something the hotel does not mention. Dirty as hell. I would NOT recommend this hotel to ANYONE.

Room Tip: This Hotel needs a SERIOUS makeover to give it that Hotel feel and not a slum feel

Despite poor reviews,we chose this on the basis of location (for partying in Dublin), and price (cheap). It doesn't turn out to be good value when the hotel tries to charge you DOUBLE when checking out!!! This, in my opinion, was the hotel trying to chance their arm as there was a change to the original booking with a night being cancelled. Am writing this review because I am Irish and I DREAD to think what they might do to tourists who might not have good English or might get confused about what they originally booked. The reason I fear that people could be SCAMMED?? When I asked the lady to show us the page we signed when we checked in that had the CORRECT price on it, she simply would not do this. She telephoned a staff member and threatened them with having to pay the difference. Nice, very nice. I wouldn't have bothered reviewing this dump if she hadn't left such a bad taste with this behaviour. I haven't even gotten to the hotel's quality (or lack of) ...I think this might be covered in the other reviews ;) Just avoid!!!!!! Even if it looks cheap, do you want to be wrongly charged double on checking out?? The woman was also rude on checking in...go figure?!

Absolutely disgusting, the first room we were shown to was on the top floor, 4 flights of stairs with no lift and no offer of help with luggage. It was filthy, rotten windows, broken furniture, scabby wall with a poor paint job, and poor fixtures. We immediately went to reception and demanded a different room, this was also totally unacceptable same problems as the previous room and a chair with the covering hanging off. I don't know where the pictures on the hotel website came from but apart from the frontage none of them were from here. Again off we trotted to reception to demand our money back as this hotel had been blatantly missold. The receptionist stated this was not possible as we had booked via a site and would need to take it up with them. She did however take contact details and stated the manageress would contact us on her return 3 days later, we're still waiting! We went to the attached pub which was so filthy we didn't dare take up the offer of free Guinness in fear of becoming unwell because with the level of cleaning I doubt the pipes have been cleaned in years.
Definitely not cheap and cheerful, it's a complete hovel that needs closing, deep cleaning and refurbishing. Whoever gave it a 2* is delusional it's more like a -5. If I can I'll upload my photos which are a world away from the website ones

We stayed for two nights. The lady at the reception was very nice and friendly. Both the room and the bathroom should be renevated a bit. If you expect everything to be neat and floor tiles to be in their places then maybe this isn't hotel for you. But if you like hotel in the heart of Temple Bar then this could do just fine for you.

Let me start by saying the staff was wonderful nicest people ever. However the conditions of the hotel were horrific. It was dirty, tiles were coming up in the bathroom, carpets were stained, no door on shower where there was supposed to be one, handles on doors with little door knobs, mildew all around bathroom, found a pair of dirty women's underwear under the mattress. To loud and heard everything. I wasn't worth the 297 we paid and will never stay there again.
