I can't find anything good to say. This hotel is Nasty and funky. Our beds was supposed to be king sized, but all it is was two beds pushed together. Our bathroom is dirty (hairs in the tub, sink is gross). Carpets are disgusting, looks like they've never been cleaned. I will not even take my shoes off. Continental breakfast...

Excellent location, near everything, making the city extremely accessible. ATM outside the hotel, very handy. The hotel was spacious allowing for a relaxing ora throughout. I wouldn't consider it a luxurious hotel, basic.... But perfect! I was delighted as my room had air conditioning, the bedroom and bathroom were spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Both breakfast and...

This hotel is walking distance to much of the city center. Also right next to a pharmacy and close to markets. I liked the location across from the city square (park) but just realize this is more a functional and simple place to sleep and not a luxury accommodation! Breakfast was good.

It's not the most modern of hotels and it doesn't have a spa (if that's what you're looking for), but if you want to stay in Galway at an affordable price near the middle of everything, this is where you want to stay. The lobby isn't very impressive, so I didn't know what to expect once we got to the...

Location is just awesome, center right across the park, walking to all pubs, restaurants and shoppings. Mediocre breakfast, simple to fill you up couple of hours. Overall it's great place for the location to walk around beautiful Galway city.
