Pretty Good!

Room is Clean, food is pretty nice, and area is relative convenent!
In general, it is pretty nice, room is very clean, and comfortable to stay. The area it is located is relatively close to city center, only about 10 minutes walking takes me to the Dublin Hop-on Hop-off bus station. but one comment is there is no hand lotion in room.

nice and quiet

location, pleasant staff, good cafe/restaurant
At first thought hotel too far from city centre but only a very pleasant 20/25 minute stroĺl to city center or 1 train stop. Lots of cafes at Docklands - 5 minutes walk. Hotel has good meals. Rooms large, comfortable, staff pleasant and obliging.

Cozy hotel by the canal

Location proximity to workplace, free WiFi, free water
Enjoyed the stay at the hotel, with its easy access to the WiFi, but could do better with the housekeeping. One of the sheets was stained by the chocolate favors provided, and was never cleaned by the housekeeping.

Enjoyable weekend break to attend a show :)

Location was great , close to city centre but with reasonable drink prices .
Enjoyed my stay , only complaint I would have is i booked a double room and was given a triple . We decided to Push two of the beds together and when we moved the bed the dirt underneath it was un necessary ! Up until that point I was happy with the room except a badly stained bath then greeted me in the bathroom !

A cosy hotel close to the middle of the city

Great location, easy parking facilities, very good bathroom and a big bed
It was a very comfortable stay with well-trained staff who were very knowledgeable about their city. The room was well sized with a large comfortable bed and the bathroom was well equipped with a large bath - just perfect for relaxing in after a big day of sightseeing.

Convenient comfortable business stay

the bed the fast internet and the business support office
My business trip took me to this part of Dublin and the hotel was very close to the event that i was speaking at.The bar had a good atmosphere. the dining experience was very good and unexpected. The gym was well equipped. Room very modern and spacious. Bed extremely comfortable. Recommend highly especially for proximity to the 02 arena.

Ok hotel, with nice location for my visit

Location, Staff and Bathroom
I went to visit a couple friends of mine who works at Google main office. So the location of this hotel was very good for that stay. Did not eat anythin at the hotel, so cant give any fear reason for my review there.
