This hotel is very close to the train station, Eyre Square (or John F. Kennedy Park), shopping, tourist information center and some great restaurants. Walking into the lobby is like taking a stroll back in time, which we loved. We were quite surprised to receive a key with a huge key chain complete with hotel name and room number. We left our key "anchor" at hotel reception whenever we left the hotel, and the staff would recognize us when we walked into the lobby and would have the key waiting for us. The hotel needs to invest in some updating, specifically security (key cards, deadbolts on the door), rooms and furniture - some furniture was broken, had a very small tube-style TV mounted in the corner of the room, etc. The reception staff were very nice and if the hotel wasn't full, they would have moved us to a newly renovated room. The bar looked great, but was often empty and the bar staff seemed to have multiple roles or jobs that required them to leave the bar area. We went to the hotel next door for an evening drink. We would consider staying here again, but would ask for a newly renovated room.

Room Tip: Newly renovated rooms; if non-smoker, a non-smoking room

Stayed here with a group of friends in september. The hotel is right in the heart of the city, within minutes of all the best pubs, clubs & restaurants. the rate we paid was good value. the hotel however needs to spend some money on updating their rooms, they were quite shabby. all and all we had a decent stay, the hotel staff were very accommodating & helpful.

We stayed here last month and enjoyed this hotel right in the heart of Galway City. We found the staff to be friendly and professional. the room was very basic but clean. This hotel is perfect for people on a tight enough budget who want a central location. If you are looking for luxury id suggest to look else where. the hotel bar & restaurant were pretty decent too.

The staff of the hotel were very nice and helpful. The bar was nice and the pint of Guinness is good. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were very helpful. But I have to give the hotel a bad review because the room was very poor. The carpet was filthy with stains. And the wall paper was ripped and dirty. The bathroom was clean but the paint was peeling off the walls and the tiles were cracked. This is not a staff problem. It is obvious that the management are not spending money on maintaining the hotel. This is an awfull pity for the hotel is in a great location...

We stayed here on Sept 11th 2013, the location is perfect. Steps away from the train station and close to all shops.

The staff are amazingly friendly and couldn't help us enough and the food is wonderful.

However, the bedroom was very dated, with old fashioned furniture and I felt quite claustrophobic in the room that we were given and I didn't really feel it was worth the €79 which we paid to stay here.

However, overall, the stay was enjoyable, good food and good staff!

The location is in a great place. Walking distance from great shopping, pubs, and food. Our room was tiny. *tiny*! We payed a ton for it. Twice as much as the huge castle room we stayed in the night before. It was outdated and a little dirty. The staff was nice. When we left the window open it smelled like a mixture of fried and Chinese food. When it was closed it was too hot. Find a b&b. it'll be better. I promise.
