The bathrooms are small but very beautiful. I would have appreciated some cream available in the bathroom with the toiletries It's a place that doesn't...

We came to Dublin for a first time for my boyfriend's birthday. It's quite central and all main attractions were a walkable distance. The reception staff were very informative and helpful and the hotel was very clean. Our room was comfortable and had everything it needed although the bathroom needs a little updating in my opinion. The breakfast was lovely,...

The location is good, 5 min drive to centre of town. The decor was classical (which I like) and has a slightly opulent feel to it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, spacious but adequate. The TV was too small and they really should have USB chargers as well as normal plugs etc. Beds were very...

Two friends and I stayed in a triple room on the top floor. Nothing special, but a perfectly decent and reasonably priced hotel near Trinity College. Friendly staff. There's​ also a superb craft beer pub, the Ginger Man, just across the road. The only minor niggle was the TV, which was on the small side. But overall, would recommend.
