“Top Hotel - Great Location”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Germany from Galway. Do not be put off by the neighbourhood, its actually a pretty safe area, and very centrally located. We were on O'Connell Street in little more than 20 minutes, and Grafton Street 10 minutes later.
The hotel itself is a good size, secure underground parking (free) is definitely a bonus, and a pre-booked breakfast of €10 is also decent value.
The room was big, clean, light, and the bathroom was adequate (although the water pressure for the shower was the worst I have ever experienced in my entire life).
All in all good hotel, great value for money, and I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good (any/some) water pressure for the shower!

This is a terrific hotel, with large rooms and baths and a handsome lobby. The hotel is kept in a spotless manner, and the staff are very helpful. If there is a down side, it is that the place is not in the center of the city - but that is also a plus with less traffic and noise. We've stayed there twice and expect to return this Fall.

We stayed here our final 2 days of our Ireland trip. It was within walking distance to City Center...free parking is nice...the restaurant has a delicious VEGAN (hard to find many vegan menu items in Ireland) quinoa salad with hummus. The room was a decent size, clean, free wi-fi worked great, front staff very helpful (especially when I couldn't remember my in-room safe combination).

Room Tip: We were on side by river...seemed quiet.

The hotel is lovely. Large modern rooms with deep bathtub and separate glass shower stall. The staff is incredibly helpful, and the hotel even left us prosecco (like champagne) for my birthday!

The breakfast buffet was also quite good. We never tried the bar or restaurant for other meals but they are spacious and looked wonderful also.

It's also easy to get to from the airport. The Air Coach bus drops you at the first stop, Drumcondra. Take your first left then walk about 10 minutes to the traffic light, turn right and the hotel is up the road on the right.

Overall we loved the hotel!

This is not however the best location for sightseeing in Dublin. It's across from the Croke Park Stadium so it's not in the heart of the area for the sightseeing bus. The Grey Line City Sightseeing bus does stop across the street with the blue line of its busses but the problem is it only runs every half hour AND it stops running early afternoon so you will have to take a taxi back and if you want to go back into City Center for dinner you'll need a cab both ways which runs around 9€ each way. The green bus line, Dublin Bus Tours, also stops here and it seems to run later but I don't know how late.

We stated here for our 1st wedding anniversary as we visited Dublin for a few days.

The staff were friendly and helpful, we received complimentary prosecco, an anniversary card and even felt our room had been upgraded compared to what we booked. The hotel was decorated well and our room was nice and spacious. We had breakfast there everyday which was great as it filled us up for most of the day!

We checked in early and left late but was able to leave our luggage with concierge until we returned/left.

The hotel is situated opposite Croke Park stadium but is about a 20-25 minute walk from O'Connell street. This was fine but after being on your feet all day we wish we'd stayed a little closer to the centre.

The location of the hotel would put us off from returning as we couldn't be bothered with the walking again. As you end up walking through what feels like an estate we were asked for money by a teenager one evening. When we politely declined and continued walking he began to follow us. It was slightly intimidating even though I was with my husband but I'm sure this was a one off and obviously nothing happened.

All in all - lovely hotel with friendly staff.

I recently stayed at the hotel where I found the rooms amazing and the beds so comfy. I had drinks at the bar before heading for dinner. I was served at the bar by a very nice girl Leanne. She was so polite and helpful answering any questions myself and my partner had. Food was also fantastic. Cant wait to come back and stay again.

The Croke Park is a good quality business style hotel - little individuality and a formulaic design but a dependable quality and comfort you can reckon on. Room items like the towels, bedding and crockery were above average. Staff were quite willing to give us a room at 9am but none were ready. The location is a good walk from the city centre but quite manageable for the two days we spent exploring the city. Quite OK for a quick city visit. Recommended!
