“Excellent value and hotel!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

The amount of money we payed for this hotel is so little for the facilities they were offering! The rooms were very modern, spacious, and fully equipped (shower gel/shampoo etc changed every day, hair dryer, tv had loads of channels, free superfast wifi, and 2 extremely comfortable beds!). The staff was also really polite and we could get taxis to whichever destination within only a minute! Food and drink services were excellent, and so was the gym. Will definitely go there if we're in Dublin again!

Really good hotel, location isnt the best; you wont find much around the immediate area but the city centre is walkable if you are very determined (we got a taxi for about 10 euros). The gym and restaurant/bar are very nice too. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who doesn't mind a little extra walking, getting taxis/buses. I definitely thought we had value for money with this.

This is a very nice hotel in a less than desirable location, adjacent to the Croke Park Stadium. . We spent two nights and used the hop-on hop off bus to tour the city. There is nothing within a reasonable walking distance. Clientele appeared up-scale. The breakfast which was included is very good. If you want toast or coffee you'll have to ask for it. The hotel is clean, modern and secure. Now my reason this place isn't rated higher. We ate in the hotel pub twice as it was the only option. Service is nonexistent. The waiters/waitresses appear to have no assigned area and walk around in a bit of a daze. We waited at least 30 minutes after eating before flagging down a waiter and asking for our check. He forgot, we asked him again and he brought us a check which wasn't ours and asked us to look at it and tell him if we recognized the order. Basically an hour after we finished we were able to settle up. ..The employees are all very nice but lacked any supervision or focus, it was very bizarre. There is a bar without seating; however twice we ordered and they asked us to sit down at a table and they would "drop off' the drinks. One safe bet, order at the bar, pay for your drinks, insist on acquiring your drinks & then sit down. I had the sticky chicken legs and thighs, believe they were some type of game hen or a hybrid mini-chicken as I'd never seen pieces that small..although they were tasty. There is an illusion of service due to the number of employees..it is an illusion. If you need a place to spend a couple of nights and don't plan on eating dinner at the hotel, or walking to a pub or restaurant this is a 4. I noticed airline flight crews in the lobby



There is a small but adequate exercise facility which was very convenient

Room Tip: check on your bed when checking it, we had a twin and a single (for a couple)

To be honest, I was only here for one night, and only because it is near the airport. Other than its proximity by cab to the airport, and its proximity to the stadium, I don't feel that this hotel is in the greatest of locations. Public transport is a bit of a walk, and then you will have to change buses from there to get into Dublin proper. The rooms were very nice and modern, with ample amenities. If you are coming for a game, this is the place to be! If, however, you are visiting Dublin for Dublin, this is may not be your best choice due to its location. It is a modern hotel, not a boutique or historical hotel. I offer this distinction only because there are so many of both in Dublin, and some definitely prefer one over the other.

This hotel is in a unattractive part of Dublin but is of course across from Croke Park Stadium. The welcome is immediate and the staff are superb. Our request for a change of room to one with a kingsize double bed was met immediately. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent bathrooms. Breakfast would benefit from having more staff to bring the tea/ coffee and toast but there is lots to choose and it is plentiful. I asked for poached eggs and these were beautifully presented. We weren't rushed at checkout and given bottles of water for our journey. This is a lovely hotel and I would stay there again.

If the location of the hotel is not that important and you are prepared to walk, this is probably one of the best options. Besides, the green shuttle bus for the city tour hop on and off can take you to and from the hotel to the city centre attractions. The facilities are modern and well maintained and the staff is especially attentive. Excellent
