Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the room was good for the money with a comfortable bed and good en-suite facility. The food was excellent and service very prompt. The nightly entertainment was really great, we both enjoyed the show immensely. Would certainly recommend this hotel and hopefully will stay here again

Location is ideal, the staff without exception are very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is good value. Air conditioning would have been most welcome, but aside from that, we had a wonderful stay.

This hotel provided a lovely quaint haven for a fabulous 3 days spent in Dublins fair city. The hotel is situated a small walk away from O'Connell bridge and boasts cute views.Temples Bar is just over the bridge and there are many other local hot spots you can visit during your stay, all are within easy reach in this lovely, romantic venue.
The hotel is bustling with activity and has a large bar and restaurant with live entertainment to boot. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming on your arrival and are quick to make you feel at ease.. The food was good and the breakfasts were excellent, the service was also good. The hotel definitely gave us some welcome enjoyment and a warm taste of Dublin culture
.Although the hotel is only 3star our room was clean, comfortable but simple, the bed was comfy, large and the sheets were crisp, all that we needed during our brief stay.
We travelled with another couple and spent our days wandering around the bars and shops, talking to the locals and drinking guinness whilst we soaked up the street entertainment and beautiful architecture that line the pretty streets. During our stay we also visited the beautiful Slane Castle, all in all a great time, great value and we will definately come again one day x

The hotel is in a very good position, near to "everything". The rooms a bit dated, no night table close to the bed; no attention for particulars: the standard lamp with loose base (it's one thing that can't change the condition of the room, but!)
The staff smiling and helpful, excluding, without naming her, or better she deserve, because I think she's the chef of Reception, Keera (sorry for the spelling). Just for saying: I went downstairs to book a wake-up and I find her at the telephone, chatting, I suppose with a friend, because the smiling & nodding behavior! I stood in front of her for not less than an half hour, but a least thirty minutes (!), she never looked up! By the way, at the end I asked to a very kind porter to sign for my request.
The hotel is without a car park, but they allowed to park my car in their store, without any charge.
In the night you can enjoy the dances and songs of Ireland, without dining, using only the bar.

A good and friendly hotel in a great location.

The hotel itself is comfortable, nothing to write home about, but for the money excellent value. The room was decent size, with a massive bed. The view was over a alley, but it is a city centre hotel, right in the middle of the action, only a small percent of the rooms will have a good view, at the end of the day the room was just to sleep in for us view did not matter. The staff were friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was plentiful.

A warm welcome was certainly received at this hotel. We had booked two rooms and had to correct the receptionist as she only gave us keys for one room, but this was easily rectified. We'd also asked for our rooms to be next to each other, but this was not done, again this was easily rectified. Excellent location and wonderful staff and the hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms were of generous proportions, only one of our rooms had a bath/shower, the other had a small shower only. Beware of room 317 as it is noisey! We had asked to stay in a quiet area, but our sleep was disturbed throughout the night by regular noises (possibly mechanical) from a nearby room and by being at the rear of the hotel overlooking the extensive air conditioning system. The noise was not an issue for guests in room 319 however. There is no air conditioning in the bedrooms, and the heat was overwhelming due to being blessed with good summer weather in Dublin, but the windows only open a small amount and insufficient to cool ourselves.....I'm sure we'd be grateful for this in the winter time. Breakfast was fantastic. The hotel facilities are good. We booked into the Celtic show, the food was far from ideal but it was worth sitting through for the sake of a superb show! The staff throughout the hotel should be commended on such wonderful costumer service.......it really is the staff that makes us want to visit the hotel again. Thank you x

Room Tip: Avoid room 317 if you want to sleep

Small reception with efficient, if icy, staff. A chat warms them up but not what I'd call 'welcoming'. My room 425 was exactly what I requested. Quiet, back room at the end of the hall. Very comfortable bed and pillows, nice size bathroom and good shower. Sink area could use a shelf for toiletries, but otherwise fine. Everything worked as expected, nice size for a single guest. Lots of info for tourist attractions in folder on table. Irish show was very good in restaurant/bar. I didn't have dinner so can't comment on food. Bartender pours a very stiff drink, bless him. Location is brilliant and I'd return for just that reason. Felt I got my money's worth at $120 Cdn/night. Note: comments with regard to dumpster emptying midnight, yes, you're on an alley but with a pick of front or back just remember garbage truck is working and leaving, party personalities out front will stay and stay.....guide yourself accordingly.

Room Tip: Back of hotel is quiet but no view
