My husband and I stayed here from October 24-27, 2012. It is about a 5 minute walk from Connelly Station (took the train from Galway to Dublin Heuston station, then transferred to the LUAS from Dublin Heuston to Connelly Station - easy!), which was fairly easy for us since we only had backpacks and carry-on-size luggage. Our room was ready by the time we got there. We got the standard double; like our stay at Forster Court Hotel in Galway, the room was a decent size, the bed was a nice and large king, and otherwise the accommodations were fairly basic (but whatever, the price was right for us at barely over $100/night).

The hotel is across the street from Trinity College, and just past that is Grafton Street. Temple Bar is right next door. If you're looking to stay somewhere and avoid taking cabs, or are feeling a little lazy about researching the public transit systems, this is a great hotel due to its location.

Sleep quality was okay, given that their light blocking curtains do almost too good of a job. Beds are comfortable. However, I would say that I requested a wake up call and never got it (good thing our cell phones had alarms set and didn't attempt to adjust to Chicago time). Also, our room overlooked the Dublin Firestation. Not a bad thing as far as a view (wink!) but I'd wake up to sirens on occasion. Additionally, I couldn't sleep at all my first night since the room got so hot! During my stay there we couldn't quite figure out the heater system (I thought I had turned it on but didn't hear anything, so I thought I turned it off but still didn't hear/feel anything).

Also, breakfast wasn't included in our rate. That was fine by us; we opted to eat out most of the time anyway. We did avail ourselves of the breakfast buffet the morning we left for the airport. It's quite good. The scrambled eggs weren't overdone, the selection was really good, and their pastries are baked fresh!

Despite these things, we would likely stay here again because of the good price, the central location of the hotel, the service we received and the cleanliness of the hotel.

This was the last two days of our three week journey in Ireland- the begining didn't start out so well and accomodations had to be re-arranged by the booking company, but they gave us the last two nights in Dublin at this FABULOUS hotel. talk about impressive- first of all, the manager, Mr. Pigott ( hope i spelled his name right, if not, he'll know it's the rider of the camel :) was amazing. so easy to talk to and very much wanting the guests to be comfortable. he even allowed my-50-ish-self and my 50-ish friend to take our picture on/with the camels in the morrocan style courtyard. it was a blast!! The hotel is absolutely beautiful- beautiful decor, awesome food and great staff. it really was the BEST part of the trip. we were looking forward to going home, but after two nights in that hotel, we didn't want to leave. i believe we will visit ireland again, and stay at that very hotel. it's fabulous and anyone going to dublin needs to check it out. it's literally right around the corner from grafton street. and thank you, Mr. Pigott, for all of your help, you were truly awesome!!

Friendly, helpfull staff. Interior full of character. Good bar. We were upgraded to superior/executive room: space and more space, lush , excellent beds. Sound insulation to street is perfect, less so to the corridor. Would definitly go again and refer to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade :-))

Very nice hotel. Easy to find and the location is great for exploring Dublin. Don't let the fire department next to the hotel scare you - it's a very quiet hotel. Never heard a thing. Front desk very friendly and helpful. No a/c, rooms a little warm, even with the window open. Other then that, highly recommend this hotel.

The location of the hotel can't be beat - a prime area for sightseeing, shopping and transportation. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. This is very important since the character of Dublin had changed since my last visit 20 years ago; it was wonderful to see that some true Irish hospitality still exists. My only criticism is the nearly nonexistent lighting in the room. I literally could not see the contents of my suitcase.
