Recently spent two nights at this quaint old Irish pub. It is located in a fabulous spot, The Rocks Craft Market actually on the doorstep Saturdays and Sundays. Other places of interest are within easy walking distance.
The room we stayed in was old but certainly clean. As mentioned in previous reviews, it is very noisy because of the live entertainment on the weekends, but if you are aware that this is going to be the case, you really shouldn't complain.
A cooked breakfast is included in the price, which is a bargain, given the location. Other meals are hearty and very tasty - don't go past the Steak and Guinness pie.
I would highly recommend this beaut old pub. We will certainly be going back there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ensuite. Take ear plugs if you want to sleep earlier than 12.30 on weekends, otherwise go downstairs and enjoy the entertainment and an ale or two!

The Irish staff in this hotel are friendly and helpful.
The rooms are clean and very comfortable.
Plenty of communal bathrooms if you don't choose en suite.
The only problem is that it is a pub and is extremely noisy at weekends, however, if you get a room on the second floor at the back, the noise level is bearable.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room at the back, if you want quiet. This only applies at weekends

Couple running the establishment are wonderful...breakfasts are good but it is very noisey on the weekends because of the Irish Pub.

Room Tip: Pick a room not on the street side...too noisey.

For the price I really think you do ok. We got the room with the ensuite, and be honest you pay $150 per night, inc breakfast, to be right in the middle of the Rocks. The rooms are run down, but they are clean and the staff are terrific. Its a really friendly place to stay. BUT. If you want to sleep before 12:30 am you can pretty well forget it. We thought we would be safe from the noise by moving from a bedroom on the street to off the street but the Saturday night band played louder. And on Saturday morning they set up the market from 3am. Having said all that, if you want a drink or a meal or you want to listen to the band without staying at the hotel, then its well worth a visit.

Room Tip: not with street windows

It is hard to know where to start with this hotel. Perhaps I could overlook the 5 toenails I found on the floor throughout our stay, the fact our beds were only made about twice during the 8 horrible days we stayed there and the pounding music until midnight, if it wasn't for the way we were treated by the staff. I am a 22 year old backpacker and had spent the year staying in $20-a-night hostels, and never have I been treated like we were here!

We asked the woman in charge, Yvonne, if we could please change rooms as my bed was completely broken - she said, "Jesus! Give me a break!" sighed and showed us a different room but said "You can move now or not at all girls I can't move you again after this. She's just a baby anyway she can sleep anywhere!" So, naturally, we decided to stay where we were, and the solution was to turn the bed on it's side and I slept for the week on a mattress on the floor!

Unbelievable. At the end of our stay we simply left the keys in the room and left so we didn't have to talk to her again!
