“In the centre of Dublin - great hotel at a great price!”
Reviewed 21 May 2011

I stayed here with a large group of friends, probably 12 I think in total, such a great hotel if you are looking for something in the middle of Dublin and not too expensive!! It is just off Grafton Street so if you are going for the night-life and shopping this is the place to stay if you don't want to spend a fortune but you want a great, clean yet still grand hotel.

There are many hotels in Dublin that are expensive 5*'s yet worth every penny, this hotel is more of a busy younger hotel but great for the value.

The breakfast too was delicious and we were given a fantastic rate for this after calling before hand to discuss as so many of us would be staying there.

It has a lively vibrant atmosphere yet rather relaxed, only problem we had was when returning from a night out whilst some were already in bed and a few of us just brushing our teeth in the toilets we had a knock from a member of staff at reception asking us to keep the noise down, considering we had just walked through the door and were getting ready for bed I would say the walls must be paper thin!! as we were only talking at a normal volume whilst getting into bed!!

So if you are looking for a good top hotel in Dublin, it is not the best hotel there is in the town but for the value you cannot beat it unless you want to spend a lot of money!!

Loved this hotel. Location is something else. Really central which made for a great experience in Dublin city centre. Hotel is traditional and welcoming and not OTT on the "posh front" yet luxurious. Staff were really pleasant and very helpful. Bedroom was possibly very slightly on the smaller side of what we expected but still very comfortable and impressive. I wasn't excited about the cafe/restaurant on the ground floor as I thought it lacked a little atmosphere but we planned to eat out most of the time anyway so it didn't affect us much. Breakfast was of a very high quality too. We didn't have afternoon tea but saw that there was obviously a big demand for it and that added to the atmosphere of the busy foyer.

Superb location in the centre of town, but you'd have no idea that the some of the bars are so close because the rooms are so quiet! Breakfast was adequate (had better), but we didn't eat in the hotel for dinner or any other meal.
Check in was easy, as was check out - always really friendly staff and a smile. We were offered a cold towel on arrival and a bottle of water on leaving "for the journey".
The rooms were lovely - we had one each, and both were kitted out with everything you want - including a great coffee machine and the comfiest bed going!

This hotel is amazing. I brought a tour group from the states in March and booked 6 rooms for 3 nights.
The staff was incredible, especially Willy, one of the concierges. They are helpful and friendly and will assist you with anything!
Gorgeous rooms, beautiful lobby, great room service!
Stay here!!!
