While Dublin is not the biggest city, I think location was one of the best parts of this. You're away from the Temple Bar tourist area, while still being within walking distance of bus stops, bars, and tons of food options. The room that I had was for myself and my SO and we originally ordered a room with a...

Was a little concerned when we arrived about 10:30 pm. They have a bar downstairs that looked kind of sketchy (although my family thinks my radar is set a little too sensitive on that sort of thing) with a bouncer outside and a bunch of folks hanging around in the cold smoking. Have to ring in to the lobby. Once...

After staying in an Airbnb listing that was much more expensive and disappointing, we were pleased with the customer service we received at check in from Anthony, the inexpensive price, the clean room and the excellent location! We were able to walk all over City Centre Dublin, area is great.

My friends and I (a group of 5) spent 3 nights in Dublin and stayed at this hotel. Our room was a suite with 3 full sides bed and a small living room area with a couch and TV. We were worried about being crammed in a room but this was spacious for us. The beds were also really comfortable....

Great location for a 2 star property. Very basic however fulfils your basic requirements. I would personally recommended this only on the basis of the service levels offered by their reception staff Anthony O'Brian. Very warm and friendly and happy to assist. He truly represents Irish hospitality in its true sense. If you are looking for a place....I think this...

Hotel is basic but fine for a night out. Staff were fine and the rooms were a little run down but clean. Would skip the bar down stairs basic beers, staff all on phones behind the bar, dirty tables, posters for the All Ireland still up weeks later. Also no resident bar for some reason.

This hotel was in Richmond street a very nice street in front of a romanic view of a canal. It was difficult to reach for us, but I liked...
