A lovely hotel evolved from several buildings so has lots of stairs, there is a lift that serves the main floor levels.. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The Water pressure wasn't brilliant but by running the tap for a while there was hot water. The Irish breakfast was served plated but there was help yourself cereal, ham, cheese and grapefruit and plenty of bread for toasting. The reception staff were welcoming and the bar had live music.The hotel is located 50 yards from the hop on hop off sightseeing tour bus and local buses and is a short walk up O'Connell Street from Temple Bar.
A Dublin Bus Freedom Pass can be bought at the airport either from the Dublin Bus desk or a vending machine by the bus stop this gives unlimited use of the Airlink bus, the hop on hop off sightseeing bus and the local buses for 72 hours.
Catch the 16 bus to Temple Bar area and back up to Parnell Street across the road from the hotel.
