“Never again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2009

We booked this hotel due to its location-short walk to central shopping and eating areas. Also as we know the city we were happy to stay in the hotel as we were planning on meeting friends that night and intended going to the nightclub that is linked to the hotel.
First impressions of the hotel were ok. Despite the fact that we had to go into the hotel, get a key for the car park and return to car to park it, then drop key back again-same when leaving.
Staff were pleasant until it came to our room. There were no curtains in our room. There was some netting, but no actual curtains. When we notified staff of this we were told that there was no other rooms available. We had paid in advance and they offered no creit or renumeration of any sort. We were thoroughly disappointed with how we were treated and therefore I do not recommend this hotel.

Please do not stay in this place if your planning to sleep. Unbelievable, the noise was incredible. We didn't get any sleep till about 4 in the morning. The bass guitar was vibrating the bed!!! (thats not a joke by the way) So I'll start from the beginning...Arrived about 7 in the evening after a flight and plenty of walking all day. Walk in and my girlfriend falls in the lobby, floor was wet, but we got over that, as we were just thinking about a good nights rest. We then confront the receptionist (we stayed tues 27th oct 09), she had a face that would frighten Satan, she was unfriendly, uninterested and unhelpful and obviously did not went to be there. When my gf fell she didn't even ask my gf if she was ok!!!!!!!!!!! Just looked down at her on the ground and moved on to the business of getting rid of us out of her sight. So off we go to our room, it was clean but very very very small. Bathroom was clean and nice but the shower is very very small. The main light switch turns on both the bathroom and bedroom light!!!! Very strange. So I then go to turn on the telly...no remote, looked everywhere, so went downstairs to ask where its located in the room. To my shock she hands me a remote and of a box of them! Surely she should have given it to us BEFORE we went to the room. I was abit pissed off by this but theres more....try to turn on the telly with remote....no batteries!! Have to walk down stairs AGAIN. I stay theres no batteries in the remote, she just gives me another remote and doesn't even say sorry!!!! So then we settle down for the night. We were not given a choice of bed sheets i.e. light or heavy sheets. So we sweated buckets as there was just this big heavy heavy heavy blanket. Then the band started playing followed by the dj, they might as well have being playing the the bathroom ....................... breakfast was ok but didn't enjoy it because we only got a few hours sleep. WELL NEVER GO AGAIN. Its a pity because the price was good...but I know now why it was!!!!

Just reading the reviews, i have booked this hotel twice, stayed once will be staying again this weekend. The hotel is adequate, facilities are basic, the bathroom was after being done up so was clean. each time i booked the receptionist did remind me there is a night club downsatirs which can be quiet noisy.The rooms are over a night club so you can expect noise, every effort was made to sound proof rooms I noticed, with two pains of bouble glazed windows.
For us 25-35 year olds it was ideal very cheap B&B plus free entry to Irelands renowned night club with no queing and no taxi fare home its an obvious choice. looking forward to this weekend again, having said all that the night club is pretty sleezy for a city centre club but you will be guaranteed to have great crack if your up to let your hair dowm... and keep an eyeout for our Irishcelebs through out they do frequent the establishment.

We stayed here for just one night and that was quite enough! We went to Dublin for a U2 concert and as there was not much else available We booked here as it was near to Croke Park. I hated it the very moment I walked in the front door and My mind was never changed after that moment. We booked a superior double room costing 159.00 euro for a double room b&b if these rooms are superior cant imagine what the standard rooms are like. When You open the room door its like traveling back in time a tiny room You have to shuffle around the bed to look out the window that has two frames the one on the outside has open windows but the one in the inside can not be opened.The bathrooms a joke there's a frosted window out in to the bedroom for what reason I don't know other then to remind You that You left the bathroom light on when You go to get in to bed! The shower cubicles so small You have to walk in and back out! Don't drop the one bar of soap that's provided in there because You will have to open the shower door back out in to the bathroom to bend down to pick it up!The bed was the most uncomfortable bed Ive ever slept in not that You would get much sleep anyway because the night club underneath is so loud You haven't a hope until after four am that is if the other guests on Your floor haven't been there and are running up and down the hallway for two hours after it closes! The breakfast is something else, the two waitress in the dining room most be two of the most arrogant humans on this planet.The heat in there was sickening not even a window open to leave a bit of air in.The fry came out on plates that were so hot the beans were still bubbling on them,there was a taste of soapy water from the tea,the toast got a passing glance at the toaster because it didn't look as if much else happened it.There was two guys came to the door of the dining room five minutes after the breakfast was suppose to end and were turned away abruptly being told the breakfast was finished not even tea and untoasted bread was offered to them! We checked out that was the only pleasant thing that happened for the stay the young girl on reception was very nice and Id say used to getting the flak she had to endure upon checkout! Never again would I stay here what a rip off!

Stayed for one night which was more than enough. Arrived for check in a bit early but was told room would be ready for 2.00pm. At two was given card for the room, room had still not been cleaned. got into room about 2.45pm. All i would say was that the room was no bigger than a box! Not even enough room to open suitcase on the floor!!! Got back at about 2.30am in the morning, loads of people still waiting to get into the nite club, no receptionist on reception. . Went up to room on the first floor to find no lights- managed to get bouncer to get supervisor who looked at the lights and managed to fix them, trip had blown. Knew that there might be some noise from the niteclub - that was an understatement. Managed to finally get asleep about five in the morning after everyone had gone home from niteclub. As checkout is at eleven did not even manage to lie in. Definately would not go back or recommend to anyone,

The noise from the night club in this place is incredible. Forget even trying to sleep until about 4 in the morning. We threatened to leave and demand repayment and then they moved us up on the top floor, but even there you cannot escape the noise.

The breakfast is not very nice, you're better off going somewhere outside the hotel. The staff is friendly, as long as you don't ask anything of them. Cleanliness is mediocre (in both rooms). The rooms are small, have lousy little TV sets (remember you cannot sleep until 3-4 AM!) and the interior seems old and overused. Also, the place looks a bit like a fire trap on the top floor.

In total, I will never go to this hotel again nor would I recommend this to anyone. There is an abundance of similarly priced hotels in Dublin which offer much more.
