I visited Dublin for a long weekend trip with my girlfriend, and we booked the trip as a last-minute package deal thru Expedia. For the rock-bottom hotel rate we got, I should have known something was up, because the flight over via Continental was flawless...the hotel stay, however, was not. The room was tiny, the bed was barely a double...

Nothing more to say than dont stay in the apartments - stale smell of smoke, stains on everything, furniture falling to pieces, no lift, down a dodgy alley - do I need to carry on!!! The only positive is that they found us alternative accommodation as was not prepared to stay here!!!

Having read the reviews, we were not looking forward to staying here even though we had booked it through an agent. On arrival however, our fears were not realised, the front desk girl was friendly and despite a few problems with the room it was perfectly acceptable to us. The tiling on the bathroom was not great, the shower screen...

Attendees at the front desk were nice enough. But couldn't help me carry my bags and suitcase up the narrow 5 flights of stairs so I did it myself. Being on the top floor, the ceiling above the window was covered in mildew and the room had a nasty smell. Beds super uncomfortable. Kept the window open at night to...

Having read the reviews, we were more than a little concerned. We tried unsuccessfully to cancel it. Most accommodation in the road was hostels and scruffy. The first night was spent in a room on the ground floor and we had the worst nights sleep ever. Banging doors, people talking loudly and drunkenly outside our window, police sirens going off...

I don't usually bother writing reviews but felt I had a moral obligation to do so. What an absolute rip off this place was, it wasn't a hotel not even a good hostel and looked nothing like the glossy brochure. The place was falling apart. There was no lift, the wallpaper was sellotaped down in more than one place. There...

We stayed in these apartments when Il Divo was in town, the web site specified the most amazing things, but when we got there it was a nightmare. Unable to reply on here until now due to "official complaints" but these have since still not been resolved. We were in the ground floor apartment, round the corner from the "jokingly...

I happened to stay with a student group for 2 nights in the apartments section. Overall, the whole place was a rip-off and a complete mess. The aparments looked unfinished with wires sticking out of the walls and broken windows. The Hotel/Hostel area was overcrowded and the front was always crowded with people drinking and smoking. Several drunk people walked...

We stayed for two nights in Dublins` Browns hotel in July 2008. We booked Browns after searching for a double ensuite room in the centre of Dublin. we read the description, "a boutique hotel with en suite, "bedroom furniture tastefully compliments the period town house" There was also a description of the elegant georgian front door. The hotel brochure showed...
