“Worth every cent!”
Reviewed 1 March 2009

I really loved everything about this hotel. It has very competative rates, most of the time which is understandable considering how close it is to Croke park. It is close to the city centre. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. They really did give the Irish welcome it's meaning. The rooms were magnificent with a walk in shower. I could not find fault with this hotel. We got more than we expected and I cannot wait to have another excuse for a return visit.

My partner booked this hotel as we went to Ireland v Georgia. The hotel was booked at short notice and the main reason for booking is it's proximity to Croke park.

Check in was very smooth as was check out.

We stayed in a superior room, which was very spacious. The bathroom was huge and immaculate. It was nice to have a full size bath and a arge seperate shower cubicle.

The bed was a large queen size bed which had a mattress on it that must have been 12 inches thick and was just a joy to sleep in

Transport links to the hotel and around Dublin are a little hit and miss to say the least but the city centre is a walkable distance.

Stayed for the weekend of the AIB All Ireland Club Championships in February and cannot recommend this hotel enough. Everything about it was just great. It's promixity to Croke Park is ideal. Checki n was fast and efficient. We upgraded to an executive room and it was just superb.

I have stayed in other Four Star Hotels and they could learn a lot from this hotel. Service is excellent. The reception staff are very helpful and don't treat you as a nuisance.

All in all a great experience

Booked this hotel for a six nations match and it was the perfect choice. Room was clean and spacious. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good and breakfast was good too.

Hotel staff were extremely helpful, we appreciated the complimentary bottle of water at check out. The 15 min walk to town is pleasant. Taxi from the airport cost less than 20 EUR.

We were in Dublin for an Ireland rugby match at Croke Park, and so was pleased to be able to book this hotel for the night of the match.

The quality and cleanliness of the bedroom was excellent.

We had a meal in the evening and the food is of a high quality but overpriced, but perhaps the hotel can get away with this since it is a 15/20 minuted walk into Dublin centre. Breakfast was included and once again it was very good.

There is a car park which is free to guests - get the reception to validate your parking ticket prior to leaving.

I would certainly recommend the hotel if you are attending a game or concert in Croke Park, but do allow for the volume of people in the bar and lobby as a result.

All in all this is a quality hotel.

The weekend was to celebrate our birthdays which fall 27 & 29 September. We contacted the hotel to arrange flowers, birthday banners and balloons etc in the room. They were very helpful with regard to this. On arrival we were pleasantly suprised to find they had upgraded us to an executive room and the room was decorated as requested and the flowers were beautiful. Breakfast was excellent and plenty of choice and service was excellent. Although not central it was only a ten minute walk into the city centre. Can also recommend the open top bus tour and the tour of Croke Park, the guide was very knowledgeable and enthuiastic. All in all it was a brilliant weekend and would not hesitate to recomend this hotel and we would certainly stay there again. One point to note Dublin is very expensive to eat and drink out.

Yes, the hotel itself is great, especially for the price. But the area is not great unless you're up to see a match in Croke Park stadium which is opposite. It's not pretty, it feels dodgy and it's a fair walk into the centre. If it's Dublin city centre you're after then there are much better hotel choices I think, particularly the Best Western Accademy Plaza, Jurys Inn Parnell Street or the Maldron Parnell.
