“Disappointed”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

Granted I was jetlagged when I showed up, but I was not impressed at all.

For people who don't know Dublin, this city is on the North side of the river, which means it's the more rundown, less touristy and sketchier part of the city. The hotel is situated in such a way that it's very difficult to figure otu how to get in, so we ended up driving around and around for at least 45 minutes. Finally we turned down this random alley which is apparently the way to get there, but though our booking site told us there as free parking there wasn't. We were charged 17 euro per day.

The noise was terrible. I'm a very heavy sleeper and I was up all night because there were people yelling outside our window literally all night, as well as people walking past our door every 20 minutes. I was travelling with my mother and didn't feel safe or comfortable in this place.

The staff was okay, the wifi wasn't very good and you can only get it in the lobby. The room were nothing to write home about. We had originally bookended our trip with this hotel but after the first night we cancelled our second reservation.

We stayed in the belvedere for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Good location (only 10 minute walk to temple bar and shopping districts). Hotel had wifi which was really useful for us as not many places around Dublin centre offered this. Great time in Dublin, fantastic night life and overall really friendly and welcoming place to come to visit.

The staff and the room is excellent, cleaned and warm

I totally recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights in Jan '13, sorry my stay wasn't longer. Asked for a quiet room and got just that. The room was big, clean and comfy, wouldn't mind a bed like this one at home. The staff were pleasant, and any request was no problem. Location was perfect, so central. We arrived early, room was not ready but there was no problem keeping our luggage. Breakfast was self service, good variety available. Check in and out not a problem. I will be back again. Dave, Cork

Room Tip: We had room 45 and it was quiet.

The boyfriend and I stayed there for quite a long visit to Dublin, we just checked out today. The room was very spacious and comfy and warm, but it was not serviced properly during our stay. No dusting and very messy bedsheets. They even left their cleaning products in the bathrooms. Once we asked if we could have a fork and knife brought to the room and we were told to go get it ourselves. Taxi service is an absolute ripoff. Breakfast was average but very good value for money. Not the same for dinner, the portions did not reflect the prices on the menu. The staff looked a bit overworked and was not always friendly. Check in and check out we're pleasant enough though. The room did get a bit too not during the night, and some of the younger guests at the hotel would sometimes get very drunkenly loud in the corridors in the early hours in the morning. Would stay there again because the room was great, I just wish it was serviced more properly during the day.

The Hotel on a whole was clean and quite modern with friendy staff. Upon arriving earlier than the stated check in time, they were able to allocate us a room. The room we stayed in, 306 (the smallest room compared to all the pictures on here!!) was said to be smoke free, however there was a strong distinct smell of smoke on the landings. There were also a lot of children staying at the same time and unfortunately at breakfast times were continuously screaming over their cereals. Although on the plus side, the food wasn't too bad. Location wise it was a good 10 minute walk to the centre of the town and 20 minutes to Temple bar, so not the most central but for the price it was reasonable.

Room Tip: Don't stay in 306
