Reviewed 11 August 2017

This is not a hotel, it is a selection of clean bedrooms. No restaurant at all, no breakfast facilities. The reception is very hit and miss, if you get the girl and ask her something [ train times etc ] she is very helpful, however if you get the young man just forget it and ask somewhere else. It is very central but too far to go for breakfast, the best is Annes Bakery two streets away. Would not use it again.

Didn't know what to expect-never been to Ireland. Seemed expensive for the size of the room, but I think that's just Dublin. Pluses: we could walk everywhere, beds were fairly comfortable, rooms were clean. Minuses: staff not very friendly, room was so hot we couldn't sleep-one fan that couldn't be moved very easily. Some oddities...our house phone was not connected-chord severed. When we asked to have it fixed-no one ever came up.

This is not an easy review because there are pros about this place although I wouldn't choose to stay here again. It is dated but clean. It is in a very convenient area where you can walk to most everything with the farthest location being 20-30 minutes (Guinness Tour, St Stephens, Zoo, Graftin Street, Trinity College, etc). I felt like it was too expensive for the room. We had a triple room (two adults and two kids) and it was small, a bit hot and right above the bar. The tram goes by on Abbey St which wasn't too bad but in the end, it isn't worth what we paid.

We chanced upon this hotel after our original hotel failed to meet our expectations. Sharon the Manager, warmly greeted us and immediately went to work finding 2 rooms for us for the week at a very resonable price. We had the best stay in a fabulous area because of the hospitality of Sharonville and Richie D. They made our Vist enjoyable. Of course having the pub downstairs was very convenient for food and drink, mostly drink...lol. Clean comfortable rooms with fans and windows that open for a nice Dublin breeze. We honestly did not experience noise from the pub downstairs at any time. We were on the 3rd of 4 floors. They offered us umbrellas when it rained, converter outlets so we didn't need to buy any which by the way they have in the lobby if you wish to buy along with lots of brochures so you can find many many things to do, and they were always interested in your day when you came back. Such nice people. Bagel shop with great sandwiches and coffee on the corner as well as a Marks and Spencer(wonderful food store)across the street. 5-7 min walk to Temple bar area. 1-2 min walk to O'Connell street and the Hop on Hop off yellow bus stop. Everything was close by. The best part about our stay was the staff, we'll definitely be back. Thank you.

We stayed at the Abbey hotel as a family. Rooms good and clean. Fantastic location, friendly staff. Full Irish breakfast at the cafe down the road was solid. Some noise from a bar down the road on the Saturday night. Overall a good place to stay and well priced.
