“Perfect for friends & nightlife”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2011

The hotel is well located and good value for money. We stayed for a concert and all we need was a room to crash so this was ideal. Breakfast was a simple cooked breakfast, nothing special but it filled a hole. Plenty of shops and bars nearby and the taxi drivers & bus drivers are brilliant tour guides.

If your looking for romantic weekend then i'd go elsewhere but this place is ideal if you need a bed for the night.

Great location, great staff and accomadation. The only downside, we were on the 3rd floor, and there is no lift, 70+ stairs! Our fault in a way, I suffer from lung disease and failed to inform when booking. Appeared to be some sort of improvement work going on, which we believe will enhance the hotel. On the Thursday night, they had a live duo playing, very good, but, the hotel need to advertise and push this night to guests, the duo were brilliant, but the audience miniscule. Overall, we would definately stay there again.

This hotel is very good.

The price for what you get is brilliant. I arrived, and the receptionist could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The room was spotless and the bed was so comfortable, and very spacious.

If I would have one complaint, it would be that the accommodation assistant on the day, was hoovering the hall, and she was very noisy, banging around, but that only lasted about an hour.

I would definitely stay here again!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2011

This hotel is very basic, and yes a bit shabby, however as we paid about 20 euros a night I don't think anyone can complain. The hotel is located about a 5minute walk from the main shopping area and is on the same street as the Writers Musuem and Art Gallery, therefore the tour bus stops very near the hotel which is handy for sightseeing.

The hotel decor is quite old fashioned however, if you are just looking for a place to sleep the hotel is fine. The room that my boyfriend and I shared was of medium size, although the bathroom was quite small with just a shower; the room was cleaned every day with fresh bedding and towels. Our room was on the first floor directly above the entrance to the strip club and we didn't even notice the noise. The bar downstairs is quite big and we drank in there both nights, drinks are fairly cheap for Dublin.

Overall, I would reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for somewhere cheap and clean to sleep, if you are looking for a luxury hotel, then you would probably have to pay more than 20 euros a night!

Stayed over on a sat night and got a great rate of €55 for double room incl breakfast. Got in at 4am and missed breakfast but I'm sure it was nice. Room big and spotless, tea coffee and tv in room. Receptionist was lovely and she directed us to free parking overnight outside on the street.
All in all well worth the money and great service.

stayed two nights at barrys and couldnt fault it , yes its basic , yes its old and could do with some work on it , but the room we stayed in had clean linen , clean towels every day and a clean and tidy bathroom . staff were friendly and helpful as were the locals. bar is excellent with the best prices in dublin , what do some people want for the price , if your looking for cheap and ideally located accomodation (5 mins from oconnell st ) then give barrys a try , oh and by the way the breakfast isnt bad either

Wow, this has to be one of the most grisly, disgusting hotels on the planet. This place is a disgrace to the lodging industry. We recently had been booked there for three nights though a travel company...big mistake. We tried to check in early but the room was not ready (not a problem) but were given a key to a filthy, trash filled closet in the basement to store our luggage until later. We returned later that afternoon and really got full wind of the odor, a cross between cat pee and an old lady's musty basement. We were on the third floor, no lift or assistance with baggage, not good for my 69 year old Mother. After dragging all of it upstairs the room was gross, toilet seat broken off, chair broken, phone had to be rigged to call out, no towels, no lock on the bathroom door and the carpets, wow the carpets were ether threadbare or covered in black grime. We decided to leave and checked out immediatley! Do not stay here! There are several other options in the area
