We were here for the week after Christmas, and it was a great place to stay! They made sure we had taxi service when we needed, assisted in finding a launderette and were very polite. The rooms were clean. The location is within walking distance to Grafton St & St. Stephen's Green. The area is safe and there are a...

It was a very good stay overall. All the staff were very nice and helpful. The food was very good and it was very well placed for the RDS and restaurants.only issue is parking Is limited but the girls were extremely helpful in finding alternatives. It was a very good shower and the house was warm overall.

We had a wonderful stay in Dublin. It was a great, safe location and within walking distance of the centre of town. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. We chose to purchase the full Irish breakfast each morning which was delicious and the additional continental breakfast was plentiful too. Would highly...

It is an old fashioned style, the room we had was underground, felt sad and noisy ... the bathroom was old and give you a feeling of not well maintained... The staff was very friendly though, really helpful. For the few days we remained it was ok but I cannot say it was worth the money we paid..

The hotel is located in a very charming old building. For the good and for the bad. Despite the charming atmosphere, my room was under the reception floor, and the sound of steps on the wooden floor was quite irritating since early morning. If possible, try to book an upper room to avoid this problem.

Disappointing. I booked and paid €288 for 2 nights then when I arrived and parked in the small car park was asked to park in a street around the corner as they'd "allocated the space to someone else' who'd yet to check in and they'd emailed me to that effect just before I'd checked in. Interior has seen better days...

Interior was shabby, elevator was out of service. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room had a comfortable bed. Location was ~ 15 min walk from Temple Bar. Was expecting more for the price we paid.

We booked a triple room which was ideal. The lodge is located to the south of the city but within walking distance along Baggot Street. There are many nice eateries nearby which cater for all types of healthy and good food options. The three of us had a fantastic weekend meeting up with other friends. Definitely recommend this B andB...

This place is not your typical b&b as there is no local host offering hospitality. It is efficiently run by a team of young friendly women from Eastern Europe and is clean, has a good breakfast and was a good value. It was on a nice street in a nice neighborhood with good restaurants, but we ended up taking taxis...

Stayed one night here back in December, when I was struggling to find a hotel at a decent price for a work night out. I was definitely not disappointed. Arrived early that afternoon and the girl at reception was extremely pleasant, very helpful with information regarding facilities and the local area. I had asked for a quiet room, a request...
