Old hotel, solid 3 star- but still- dirty towels and leaky toilets. Would stay again, but they can do better. The big bonus is triple rooms. One smelled smokey- but the staff was nice. Location is good too.

No outside area and smoking area was down an alley or out on the road. Breakfast was self serve continental. Good choice but dishes not removed when used and had...

Myself and my husband visited this hotel overnight. The staff are friendly and hotel clean. Very good quality for price paid and also extremely central location, however, I did not like the fact there's no parking facilities or the fact that there was no option of a hot breakfast. A continental breakfast was included in the price but I found...

This hotel was just the perfect thing for us! We were just staying one night in Galway and this place is smack dab in the middle of the city! It's in the square, right next to the famous shop street and a few blocks from the water!

The hotel rooms are a bit outdated. Still the hotel has a comprehensive breakfast, there is a bar-restaurant inhouse, which reasonable food. The personnel at the desk is helpfull. I had a pleasant stay, although there are probably more fancy hotels...this one was just fine for the business trip I had.
