This is a good value and location for Dublin. Street side rooms are noisy. Breakfast was fine. Close to rail and bus connections. Close to Temple Bar and O'Connell st.

We arrived before our room was ready so we walked around for about 2 hours. When we came back he said it was not ready yet, so we waited in the tv room. The tv did not work. We waited about 30 minutes when I heard a couple come in and ask for a room, the guy at the desk...

Website makes it look lovely but reality is a run down, dirty guest house in a rather noisy area. Sheets clean but duvet covers had some very strange marks on them. Shower was OK but unless you got the dial exactly right it was either scorching or freezing. Breakfast was average, portions were small and the scrambled egg dry. Noisy...

We had rented a car at the airport and it was not easy to access the hotel because there were many one way streets and not much parking nearby. The hotel offered us cheap parking in a nearby lot once we actually checked in, which was easy. The reception was fine - there seemed to be lots of instructions to...

Me and 3 of my friends stayed in this hotel overnight at the beginning of June. We had originally booked a double and a triple room, however due to one girl dropping out we asked if we could swap to 2 double rooms, this was not a problem and the staff were really kind. Rooms are slightly old fashioned, however...

Just returned after spending 2 nights at the Abbott lodge for the bank holiday. Our room (106) was on the same level as the reception but right at the end of the corridor so no noise from traffic from the very busy road, only from noisey guests hammering on doors at 4am to be let in to the room next...

In a long row of dingy hostels. No elevator. Narrow, creaky stairs. Dirty carpet. Tiny rooms. Extremely overpriced for what it is.

This was our first trip to Dublin and was my husband's Birthday present. We chose this guesthouse as the photos and description on the website made it seem a lovely, homely place. Instead, what we found was a run down, tatty house, with none of the comforts of home. Our ‘double’ room (number 120) was little more than a single...

I've been in Dublin for 5 nights, slept two in the Bunkhouse and three in the Abbott Lodge. The rooms were huge, very clean, a bit old fashioned but at the same time very friendly and warm.
