Lovely apartment, very clean, lots of new appliances and tastefully decorated. We had a top floor apartment, which was fine for us but if you have problems walking up stairs, ask for a ground floor apartment or room. Large choice for breakfast and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Very near to all the attractions and the hop on...

There was no cold water in the flat! The water was so hot on the last day that we couldn't shower with risk of serious burns. We stayed in the basement flat (no 13) which had very little day light so was not naturally warmed up. We couldn't find a way to turn the heater on or the oven to...

The price of the rooms for double use (at least in peak season) do not correspond value. Yes, they are more or less well decorated but not all that glitters is gold We were given a narrow room with no refurbished bathroom (small) as that in the photo gallery (bigger). The space between bed and wall to walk nearly inexisting....

Large room and great bed but very small bathroom and very untidy overall. Tv is very small with limited channels. Bathroom is microscopic in size and almost unusable in contrast to room which was huge.

The guest house was clean and tidy. A little dated. I booked the hotel via Agoda who I have used many times to book holidays around the world. I have never had a problem with the price until this time. I booked via the internet as normal. I was given the price which I was happy with. When I paid...

Stayed here with 3 friends on a short trip to Dublin. Central location only a 3 min walk to O'connell street. Small apartment but functional and cheap! Stayed in the apartment with 3 single beds in 3 separate rooms and also a double room. Clean and tidy on arrival. Free wifi. Looks a bit worrying as you enter the main...

Staying here at the moment, booked for two days, we are all late 50s and in our 60s and we've been put in the attic with no lift! It's relatively clean, but on making the sofa bed the sheets were full of dark hairs and the duvet was old and made of foam, torn in bits, pretty disgusting really. Plus...

The staff was very friendly, the apartment was spacious and lovely, and we were able to do our laundry for free. We showed up too early and had large bags, but they found an available apartment and on the bottom floor to boot! This has been our best experience on our 2-week European trip thus far.

We, 2 senior ladies had to climb up to the top floor. The place should advertise that there is no elevator on site for all the older and not so fit visitors. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfortable, the facilities were simple but clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
