Location, location, location - you could not find a better hotel in terms of location for taking in all the sights of Dublin. Smack right in the heart of the bustling Temple Bar, plenty of bars and restaurants on your doorstep, Halfpenny Bridge right behind the hotel, all the main shopping streets within les than a few minutes walk, bus links for the airport and indeed to travel around the city are situated right at the end of the street (a minutes walk at most), and these will take you to most of the main tourist attractions, i.e. Guinness factory tour, Jamiesons factory tour, Kilmainham gaol (the latter I would very highly recommend!).
Staff are lovely and helpful and breakfast and delicious and plentiful (buffet style for 6.95!). Rooms were basic and a little tired to be honest, but who spends a lot of time in their room when on holiday?! We were in room 305 which was situated at the back so we encountered no noise in our rooms - the only thing that disturbed our sleep was the extremely low temperature in our room! No matter how high we put the thermostat, the room would simply not heat up. We mentioned it to Reception but nothing seemed to be done. However we were only there for two nights so we were not too bothered by this - and in any case, our overindulgence in the Irish Coffees and Guinness' seemed to help us get past this :-)
All in all, would absolutely go back to this hotel and recommend it to anyone.
