Was reasonably clean and pleasant. The bed was comfortable however the windows were not great, letting in a cold draft and noise, and the duvet was very thin. But once we discovered the radiator on the second night this wasn't so much of a problem. Just little things brought it down, like the poorly fitting door frame and bathroom in...

Before i highlight the negative pointers for this hotel. I would like to describe the positives. The hotel is situated quite centrally to Dublin, across the river from Temple bar etc. The hotel is also, quite cheap. I paid 50 pounds for one night. However, i am not sure if it is worth this much. Moreover, there is a 24...

Me and my friends booked the hotel for NYE trip to Dublin but unfortunately didn't spend a single night in the hotel. It was dirty, yellow wet stained on the mattress, flies, visible wires, dirty towels and the room stunk of smoke. The manager was extremely rude when processing the refund which made the experience even more dreadful. We booked...

We stayed in Dublin before and had bad experiances with hotels and hostels- but this wasn't one of them. This hotel is clean and cosy, has everything you need for a trip to the city. It is near temple bar, too. The staff was really friendly, polite and helpfull, even at 3 a.m. Would and will book again.

Previous reviews said it was noisy, I agree the windows could do with secondary glazing as ours definitely had gaps, however we found the road does quieten down in the early hours. The room itself was small, but for somewhere to just lay your head after an evening checking out temple bar area then you can't fault it. It was...

Clean sheets, wake up call on time, not too bad a walk up the stairs, wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Centrally located, lots of action close at hand and not noisy at night, providing a great sleep.

Close walking distance to main areas. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean enough but was a little dated and rough around the edges. Also the walls were pretty thin, as we could hear the person next door snoozing. Our room was facing the street which added to the noise. But for a cheap place to stay it...

We stayed at this B&B/guest house/hotel/hostel/hovel with 4 other couples – as our friends were running the Dublin Marathon on the Sunday @ €168 per night, it wasn’t cheap. When we arrived, we were given the attic room, that consisted of 2 single beds (we had booked a double) in a dingy hovel 6 flight of stairs up. I complained...

Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. 160 euro / night for a hotel that tried to put us in a room that had not been cleaned, had filthy beds and at 10 o clock at night felt it reasonable to ask us to make our own bed with fresh sheets...This was the second room they placed us...

Dirty rooms - we went with 5 couples all rooms except one were too awful to stay in. We got put in a basement room with rubbish bags in front of the window. The shower fell off the wall. We complained and got moved into a room with no windows except for a skylight - it smelt like a mouldy...
