Great location
Great location! Easy access to everything you will need. Just make sure to check your room size when booking. They have some good sized rooms, I think, but I happened to get an extremely small one.

Parima S. Couples Thailand, July 3, 2015
Ok hotel for very short stay

Air conditioning, proximity to airlink bus
The room was nicer than expected in terms of the bed and pillows. The shower has low water pressure. The power went out 2 out of 3 mornings (for maybe 15 minutes) we were there so you could not shower or do anything. Wifi connection is not very strong or stable. The location is not exactly where we expected and it took about 15 mins walk to get to Temple Bar area. Half the staff we met were extremely nice and helpful and the other half were not. We left our bags at the Concierge on our last day when we checked out to go walk around before our flight. They brought us to this random function room in the back of lobby where there were no other bags and some staff setting up tables and chairs. We asked if it would be safe and locked up and they confirmed. When we came back they did not know where our bags were. Kind of freaked us out for a few minutes while they yelled back and forth to each other about where the bags were. We did get our bags which had been moved to the lobby area next to the front desk. Whew. Think we may avoid this hotel for future travels.

Good location, value for money
Great for short stays, nice and close to the Dublin city centre. Has gym facility but very poor and limited equipment. Room not very big but clean and tidy.

Only for people who party

Decent location; nice rooms
I wouldn't stay here again. The hotel was nice and the rooms were clean BUT you won't get a good night's rest here. The walls are paper thin, and there is non-stop partying happening inside the hotel and outside. Ear plugs won't be enough - you'll need headphones to play music and drown out the noise. On top of that, the cleaning lady comes by before 10am, which is crazy. And long before that, you will hear them vacuuming the hall ways (along with the sound of the vacuum itself banging along the walls). You can hear the sound of people's doors closing all the way down the hall. And cigarette smoke wafts through your room. This isn't a hotel for people who actually want to sleep. For party people only. Also, the Internet does not work. I think they have a dial-up connection and a router with a broken antenna.

Great location and friendly staff

Location, staff, and location
The hotel was super easy to find using the city bus from the airport. On the way back to the hotel, we used the airport link bus which is right in front of the hotel...very convenient. The hotel is super close to the Spire and Henry street. The 2 days we stayed, we walked everywhere to all the attractions...even if it was like 20 minute away. Dublin is pretty small and is walkable. If you choose not to walk, the station is conveniently located. The room was big and clean. I know the staff cleaned pretty thoroughly because there was no hair on the bathroom floor after I came back. The staff is friendly too. Great stay.
