Myself and my boyfriend and another couple booked on lastminute.com to stay at this hotel - it was done as a 'secret hotel' so cost us only £67 for the night per room which as we booked only a week in advance/was halloween night /midterm and it's located in Dublin City centre we were very happy with.
After our stay I can only describe it as a total bargain - beautiful rooms with lovely comfy beds, but mirrors and good lighting - even a movable stand alone face mirror perfect for doing make up! Nice bathroom and free wifi all over the hotel. They have their own car parking only 8euro and we could keep it there until 6pm the next day. Nice bar and restaurant downstairs - pricey but that's expected in Dublin but very nice food and handy to relax in.
The hotel is located right on the Luas (tram) line so only a 5min walk to the stop and you can jump on and be on O'connell Street in
10mins! Perfect location without being stuck in the middle of the bars/noise or anything like that.
The stand alone best thing about the stay was the staff - as two young couples who were planning on having a few drinks and heading out you often fear the hotel won't be impressed - the receptionist who checked us in (perhaps called Susan can't just remember) was so so friendly asked us what we were dressing up as and was beyond lovely can't say enough how nice - when we were heading out the door man recommended us where to go out as we weren't sure and he was spot on we had an amazing night and he was so lovely and full of craic with us that made us feel like we weren't burdens or pains in the bum - lovely staff the next morning also despite the other couple sleeping in and only waking at 12 they were very nice and asked us about our stay and our night out. Top top customer service - I will hopefully be back soon!
