“Only very basic quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

Location is not bad and not too far away from downtown. Rooms are rather expensive and small with a tiny old fashioned TV set. Quality of the bed is on the limit. Breakfast is standard without any highlights but you can have coffee as much as you want. During weekends music from a disco during all night, which may disturb sleep in some rooms.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

I must say I was a little bit dubious at €49 for 2 with continental breakfast but I was very pleasantly surprised. Room spotlessly clean, bed very comfortable, tea and coffee in room, could not find fault. Breakfast was just right, good buffet of cereals, cold ham, cheese, as much toast, coffee & juice as you wanted. It may not have plasma screens and little things like door handles could be fixed but for this price you could not complain. The service was excellent, I left jewellery behind and got call following day to say they had it at reception. Left a jacket in 5 star establishment earlier in the year and never got it back. Location was so spot on, couple of minutes walk into Stephens Green. If you want clean, comfortable bed for a night would definitely recommend, there is a nightclub downstairs and is on Leeson Street which is a late night venue so may not suit early to bed people. Would definitely stay here again.

Not too impressed with hotel. Probably ok for youngsters or stag & hen parties. Night club in basement didn't close until 2/3 am, then the noise of drunken people trying to find their rooms.

Ok so it is not the swankiest place you ever are going to get. But the rooms were grand. Clean and decent size. Beds comfortable. The location is brilliant and the rate I paid was great value.

If like me all you think of when it comes to hotels is a roof over your head and a clean room. This is it.

Stay spoilt by awful disturbance from nightclub (yes mr manager we knew there was a nightclub in the basement when we booked, but didnt expect it to sound like it was actually in our bedroom! ) Nightclub leavers about 200 of them still clubbing on the street till 4am, taxis peeping and vying for business. In the end I called the Garda to report a public disturbance. Assured a refund for the night, we're still waiting what a surprise. Terrible experience, surly staff, breakfast not worth getting up for .
