“Will always stay here when in Dublin”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Was in Dublin for a surgical conference. Found this hotel on the internet and booked it as it was in the right location(on foot); 10mins from conference hall, 10-15mins from Temple bar, 2mins to river front. The hotel experience was 10/10. Right from the onset of my stay, until the end, I received nothing but great service. The staff were very friendly and helpful (i know that this should be a fundamental thing in all hotels, but we all have seen completely awful services right). The room was excellent, a nice size, stylish and very clean. The hotel interior was that of a stylish boutique hotel, which is what I prefer. The breakfast room and breakfast was excellent. To be honest, I'm finding extremely difficult to fault this place. The price was just right. I hope to stay there again on ,y next trip to Dublin. Thank you to the hotel staff for making my trip there very enjoyable.

We enjoyed our stay at the North Star. Other than having to change rooms because the radiator would not turn off, which made the room into a sauna. We did not encounter any problems changing rooms and the staff we very helpful. The rooms were cleaned every day. The hotel is in a very good spot with the train (or Dart) not sure which is just across the road. Unfortunately it was a couple of days into our stay that we discovered just how easy travelling in the train was. Also we did get on a bus and were turned off because you have to have the right "cash" to board, but you live and learn. Other than that we had a very nice stay in Dublin at this hotel.

Room Tip: First room we were put in was too hot as the radiator would not turn off. Room was very nice though...

Stayed here for 1 night for kings of leon concert. Located just across from train station so very handy for catching train and they also do an airport shuttle. We were upgraded to a superior room for free which was beautiful. The place is just lovely and the staff so helpful and nice. Breakfast was lovely so much to choose from in a lovely room. Will definitely be coming back to stay here. I would recommend this hotel if going to dublin.

I have stayed in the North Star Hotel Premier Club suites a few times now, and each time has been wonderful. On arrival, the staff are courteous and friendly, and the suites themselves are beautiful and spacious. With dual aspect windows/balconies, the views are great, and the location of the hotel is perfect. You are not so close to the main stretch of pubs and bars for the noise to be an issue, but everywhere you want (restaurants, shops, cultural sights, Temple Bar) is in easy walking distance. Definitely the place to stay for a memorable Dublin break!

Room Tip: Although a little more expensive, if they are available then splash out on a Premier Club suite, the...

Our family trip to Europe started and ended by flying through Dublin. The North Star Hotel was a good spot for our family to start our trip. Clean and close to city center. We were able to either walk or trolly to anything we wanted to see. We did not purchase the breakfast option, but found a nice coffee shop with good food one block away.

We stayed five nights at the North Star Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Our 5th floor room looked out over the train tracks and we were worried it might be noisy, but that was not the case. We received a complimentary upgrade on our room, which was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel lounge was a great place to meet up and relax with our friends who were also guests. Breakfast was nice and they even had gluten free bread for me. We took the PaddyWagon shuttle to and from the airport which worked out great. It is only about a 10 minute walk to the Temple Bar area which was convenient for catching our day tours. Overall I would recommend the North Star Hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

Hotel is right across the street from Connolly train station and a short walk to the bus station and that means the public transport links are outstanding and within easy walking distance. The Airlink 747 bus dropped us within a block of the hotel. Our initial greeting by the front desk was chilly at best (we checked in very early but paid for the night before so we could be guaranteed a room at 8 am), counter to the warm Irish greetings we expected and got everywhere else we went. Our room was a Premier room on the 7th floor and we didn't hear train noise. It was quite small, but tastefully decorated with large comfy bed. There seemed to be air conditioning vents and climate control, however the air conditioning didn't work. This was a factor, because our two day stay was during very warm weather and the room was quite hot and stuffy. We called three times to the front desk to have the problem fixed and were told someone would fix it. No one ever came, and the problem wasn't fixed. No updates were ever provided and we had to continually call. The bathroom lights didn't work and neither did the hairdryer. Someone did show up to fix that - eventually. Overall, the hotel had a few positives as well as a decent breakfast buffet served in a very stuffy breakfast room, but the negatives outweighed the positives. I would find a different place to stay next time.

Room Tip: Make sure the A/C works on a hot day, the 7th floor had no train noise.
