“Basic and friendly but in need of some TLC!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

First off, fantastic location! Close to the centre, only about 10 minutes to Temple Bar and 5 minutes from O'Connell Street....also right next to the Airport Shuttle Bus. Clean and well serviced, friendly staff, and a good value breakfast. However, the room was snug, the windows were only single-glazed so it was really noisy at night (maybe ask for a room at the back of the property if possible), and the shower (inexplicably) dripped throughout the night.
Good value, really comfy bed, fantastic staff and a great location. If you're not fussy, this does the trick - perfect for a long weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the property!

Great for a quick stay. Brilliant location for getting to all the central Dublin haunts. Decent facilities, with comfy and clean rooms and free wifi. And a great set of friendly staff. For a long weekend on a budget, deffo recommended.

After seeing all those negative comments, I actually don't expect too much. But it is not that bad as a result. It has everything you need for sleep. The room is very old obviously but we can still use it. Except the room is very hot in June, the toilet door is broken, and the window cannot be closed. And, there is a mosquito waiting for us when we enter the room. Cool enough!

The photos on the website are abit misleading, as it looks nothing like what is shown when you get there. Room was quiet small, very basic, bathroom was shoe box size and in need of refurbishment. The beds were uncomfortable, and squeaked. Ceiling had a hole in it. Paper thin walls, you could hear everything going on in the room next door.
Found it expensive for what was offered. For breakfast which you pay extra for, you get a limited choice of cereal, tea, coffee and when we asked about a cooked breakfast, it was fried eggs (which were like rubber) and toast. Kitchen staff were very unhelpful and quiet rude to us.
No elevators so we had to carry our bags up 4 flights of stairs.
Would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Try somewhere else

The best feature is the location because you will be in the heart of Dublin in five minutes walking.
You have several restaurants so close, pubs and bus stops. However as city centre hotel is noisy.
Room is equipped with the basics standards and clean. The toilet and shower are clean but they need a refurbishment.
Is not expensive and a basic hotel to spend a couple of nights for a quick visit.

When I arrived, the service was very friendly, the room I slept in was shared but great and even though it's based in the city it was very quiet which was great so overall my stay was very pleasant and I would go again

We booked a Hotel room but felt like we were staying in a Hostel, he room was small with no window, it was very noisy as the walls were thin. Very expensive for what it was and I wouldn't recommend it. On the plus side it was central and the staff were helpful.

Room Tip: I can't recommend a room as ours was dark and noisy. The bathroom was clean and the shower worke...
