This hotel was very well situated to allow us to walk to and from the center of Dublin, and the bus transfer from the airport stopped right across the road, which was ideal. Really helpful staff, and I loved all the wooden decor. The rooms were comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. My one issue (which I find...

Comforable as it was and a queen size bed, the bathroom was tired and poorly maintained. Sliding wardrobe was non sliding. Good location with a pleasant walk...

Great location in a central but quiet area. Rooms were very clean, staff were helpful. Breakfast was good, fast service and plenty of choice. Very good value for a low-mid price hotel. Some traffic noise from the street but windows were double glazed so not intrusive.

This hotel is breathtaking! The rooms are gorgeous. The beds are comfortable. The amenities are great. The staff is extremely helpful. The location is just a 8 minute walk to the center of shopping, food, and night life! The bus stop from Dublin airport is right across the street. I will definitely be staying at this hotel again!
