Stayed at this hotel, have stayed at Travelodge in the past, so know it's budget hotel and thats fine, but this hotel, term hotel has to used loosely, should be avoided.
Firstly where did I go wrong, I didn't read reviews. I needed hotel for one night, wasn't interested in pools gyms etc so opted for budget hotel in what I thought was a good location, with parking (as avertised) and a breakfast.
I arrived enquired about parking, no parking available, only 9 spaces, all used, that was my fault as I didn't phone to enquire if the spaces were available...see I stupidly just read the information on the web site...silly me.
The hotel sits above an Aldi store and fronts onto the main Rathmines Road. I expected normal street noise, after all it is Rathmines, and it was nice to be there in the centre of things, however, the delivery truck arriving at Aldi at 5am, I didn't expect that.
The Breakfast, I like continental breakfast, I would have liked the continental discribed to me by the website and staff but alas, I 'm not too sure I have the english to describe what was presented but it is a sad inditment on the Irish hospitality industry if what I got could be described as a continental breakfast, the nearest it got to the continent was the euro coins in my pocket
The room itself was clean, compact but adequate, a little worse for ware but what I expected so had no issue with that.
Considering the price paid for a few euro more I think there is much better in Dublin, including Travelodges other hotels and of course some much cheaper if you are prepared to be a little less central.
This could be a really great little hotel, but its not
Instant coffee.....continental breakfast....I don't think so....shame on you Travelodge on guests who have paid up front
