Everything was ok, but they ask to much for what it is... We already found it to much, but we had a hige discount already.... The shower was not exactly a shower, it reallu needed renovation! Beds were very good, breakfast was delicious.

It was my first time in Dublin and I was visiting with my boyfriend. We arrived early so had some time to look around before check in. The lady at the desk took our bags for us and was extremely helpful explaining how to get to all the near by attractions, even drawing out directions on a map for us!...

We stayed here for one night. Think it's shocking you have to pay €10 to park considering its on their premises. Receptionist was lovely, always pleasant. Room was by front door and reception area, was nice and clean and spacious, but sooooooo noisy. We could hear everything, each time someone opened front door, checking in... Foot steps..
