Reviewed 29 September 2017

We booked this hotel for its location. The rooms were clean and the staff were accommodating with holding our luggage until our rooms were ready. We travelled with 11 people (family) and were glad to all be together. The staff were lovely but double check the directions they may give you to different landmarks. The parking is an issue and if you are unfortunate enough to need to park a car in Dublin you will need to use Arontts or Jarvis...$$. On-foot this location if ideal! We were happy taking taxis to/from Guinness but everything else is a walk.

Room Tip: Top floor my be quieter (farther from the street).

Stayed here for 3 nights. Its nothing flash but at about €140 per night its not what Id call real value but its comfortable, friendly and right in the heart of the action.
I suppose my biggest gripe would be the lack of water pressure in the shower as I love a nice hot, strong shower.
Theres no breakfast served but theres a plethora of places within easy walking distance with cost around €10 pp.
Theres a bar downstairs and I had my first Guinness in Ireland there. It went down well.
Theres trams at the door, buses and trains in easy walking distance. This is imperative as you dont want a car in Dublin. Theres nowhere to park and traffic is horrendous.
We stopped here as our first stop and then hired a car on leaving to travel around the rest of the country

Great location central to everywhere with a choice of numerous luas stops a stone's throw away! Would definitely recommend this hotel when looking for a place to stay in Dublin, I know I will be recommending it to all.

Our experience with the Abbey Hotel didn't match the photos shown here. This is a very average collection of rooms in an old building. Nothing terrible. It's clean and VERY conveniently located. But, the rooms are quite small, the lift is slow and it's not that cheap.
I repeat, there is nothing really wrong with this place, but there is nothing special either. The bar downstairs is fun. And, I repeat, the location is very convenient for visiting Dublin. Easy walking to all the main downtown attractions.
Tip, don't pay the hotel 10 Euro for breakfast. They send you to a cafe down the road, where the most expensive item on the breakfast menu is 9 Euro.

Room Tip: Hard to say. Ask for one that looks like the pictures.

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.
