“I think City Centre is pushing it a bit!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

While the distance was not a concern, to someone who has never visited dublin I think using city centre is misleading.After some research I purchased a leap pass, the bus system can be a little complicated but once mastered it's fine.
The room was dated the visible layers of different coloured paints, dated furniture and ill fitting curtains. The cleanliness was fine but with such a tatty hotel, the cleaner had little chance it making it look nice.
The room was so warm with no air con that we had to sleep with the window open. But the main road was so loud you couldn't sleep. Resulting in tiredness that got worse thought out our holiday. I think this hotel should be modified and the city centre tag removed. I use travelodge regularly and despite the old saying " you get what you pay fot" I rarely have a problem. I felt that I had to review this to ensure travelodge look at their hotel in one of the most vibrant cities Iin the world.

Dear Kelwaah,

Thank you for your review of Travelodge Rathmines. I am happy to read that you found the room clean.

I am however disappointed to read that you found the room tatty and noisy. It is a shame that you did not inform either myself or the reception team of the noise and we would have been happy to move you to a quieter room at the back of the hotel.

In relation to the location, we are ideally located just 2km from the City Centre(main Grafton street, Stephens Green area). There are buses every 4-6mins directly opposite the hotel, all of which go to the above areas.

I take all of your comments on board and appreciate all of your feedback.

We do hope that you will return in the near future.

Kindest Regards,

Claire O'Mahony

Good location and easy access to local bus routes into the city centre. Good value for mid-week or city break. Parking was OK as it was located in a secure underground car park behind the hotel. Bed was comfortable and clean, the front of the hotel was a little noisy from the main road traffic and pedestrians. Staff were friendly and helpful with queries on both days. There was no free Wi-Fi in the room or Reception area.

I stayed recently at this hotel and I have to say I was surprised. The hotel is basic but clean. Could do with upgrade but presented well for what it is
Staff are friendly as well as the manager who was helpful. I would recommended this hotel to anyone looking for reasonable price and clean rooms

I have already traveled with Travelodge in UK and Ireland. I have experienced a problem with the sink in the bathroom at my arrival; the professional team moved me in another room, as to restore the proper functioning of the sink. All the team has been very profesisonal and accomodating for the whole stay. I will definetly keep on considering Travelodge as an excellent solution for short of long stay.

A terrible bed with a worn-out mattress, 'w' shaped though over-use. I could feel every spring. Burns in the carpet. Shower delivered only cold water. Duvet v. heavy and hot. 2 miles from city centre. Clean.
