“NEVER EVER AGAIN!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013 via mobile

Being on a months holiday from NZ for the first time and having had stayed in some simple hotels etc, all have been brilliant, except this one, I should have checked the reviews before booking us here, after a not so nice greeting with the reception person, and paying our 2 night fare, we climbed 4 flights of stairs,what a fing killer that was to arrive up by the roof, open the door to find a dingy LITTLE room, with the bed pushed against the wall, not suitable for 2 people sleeping in it and a tv with no remote, an even dingier little bathroom room, you couldn't even sit on the toilet with out banging your knees against the shower door, the shower although heat and pressure were ok, to get in there was a mission and a half, not too miss out the mould on the shower doors, and the room had the weirdest smell ever gave me a headache, when we ask the reception person about the wi Fi which is advised in the hotel facilities I was told rudely that its not for the rooms, I stated that is says on the website site, free access to Wi Fi and it also states free Internet etc, which he told me no it doesn't...umm go check your website out dude... Lucky we had a full day booked and only had a few hours sleep in there for the both nights......recommend unless you want to sleep in a dingy place for mega bucks, try is place....as for us we will recommend to everyone we come in contact with never stay there!!!!!'

The hotel is in the centre of Dublin and directly at river Liffey. Sightseeing, Pub visits, etc. can be made without any transportation. Although the room isn´t big and not really new, it contains everything you need, the bath is clean, the staff very friendly. Late check-in no problem.
The breakfast is ok and starts normally at 08:00h, but will be served earlier, if you want.

Great location. Be careful if you're vegetarian and asking for breakfast. My girlfriend asked for no meat as she is a veggie, breakfast came with meat, waitress simply grabbed her fork and scraped the meat off onto her side plate.
Lower 2 floors stink of cigarette smoke
Bed was unbelievably creaky
Shower was disfunctional, tiles squelched as water between tiles and floor
Would have given 1 star but the great location (could fall out of bed and be either on o'connell street or in the river)

The hotel is well placed being on the Quays, so out in the open and easy to find. I did read reviews before I booked so was aware that there would be noise from the bar below but it was a lot noisier than I expected.
The hotel was clean and the staff friendly and efficient.
The room was comfortable and had a floor-standing fan which was appreciated as it was quite warm the night I stayed.
There was a kettle and tea/coffee in the room but it was impossible to get the kettle under the tap to fill it - luckily I had taken a bottle of water with me so was able to use that.
Despite the noise I would stay again at this hotel as a solo traveller as it was on the Quay and well lit around.

Room Tip: If you are bothered about noise it may be worth checking out if there are any rooms where you can...

Internet was not working there. The room was smelly like some old bar full of cigarettes and there was mold in the bathroom. It's not hotel it's more like some B&B. I asked help from reception because I had problem with window cause the room was hot like sauna and they promise to help but nobody didn't come to help us. Reception was closed at night time I thought it's open 24h.

Have stayed here twice and would return, its not perfect but its in a great location and the price is good. Only real complaint is the stairs, I did ask for another high up room on my 2nd stay as it is on a busy road so less noisy higher up, think I had forgotten just how steep and tiring it was getting to your room especially after a busy day out.
The bar downstairs is great, decor is very strange but in a good way, friendly staff and a good atmosphere, never been anywhere else like it.
Breakfasts nothing special but its ok, only ever had the cooked breakfast as the continental is just cereal and toast.
Rooms could do with updating but are comfy and fairly clean, bathrooms small but not a problem.
Overall I would say its good for the price, not a luxury stay but great as a base to explore the city
