We stayed at the Ashling for two nights. The staff was friendly and mostly efficient. The room was good and we had no problems with it. The bathroom was spacious and there was plenty of hot water with good pressure. They supplied extra towels after two requests. For the price, it was a good value in Dublin. We had buffet breakfast at the hotel one morning and it was suffiicient, costing 15 euros.
A taxi to the downtown area, around Temple Bar, varied from 6.5 to 9 euros. The hotel photo is a little misleading concerning the tram. It does go in front of the hotel, but it doesn't stop there. It's a couple of blocks to the tram stop, or over to Hueston station. Being close to the station makes it convenient for an airport shuttle.
The hotel doesn't have a secure space for luggage, for guests arriving before the check-in time (which was stringently observed). The store-rooms are self-service.
