We only stayed here for one night and breakfast but it was very comfortable and clean with all the usual 'good hotel' features. The room was a little too warm and it was a compromise over being too warm or having the window open and hearing the street noise! All in all, it's good value and very acceptable. We would...

Only spent a night here on a recent(sih) business trip to Ireland, and only a couple of hours in the hotel to sleep at that, so difficult to provide a very comprehensive overview. However, I'll add what I can to the collective body of knowledge. Location is pretty good - not quite smack bang center, but close enough to get...

Our room was comfortable and spacious and the staff at reception were friendly and efficient. The buffet breakfast €10 was very good as was the staff and service. We found the hotel bar expensive and unwelcoming. Bar man who served me seemed quite rude so we did not use it much. The hotel is 1.5 miles from Grafton St so...
