Chen W. Business travelers Malaysia, December 6, 2014
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.

Great hotel perfect for weekend theatre

hotel offers deals including theatre tickets for nearby grand canal theatre
Really liked this hotel. Location not right in the centre but it is walkable within 10-15mins. Perfect for theatre, musical lovers. Hotel is also right next to a lively bar and close to many excellent restaurant of Dublin 4. Negatives: strict wi-fi limit but free nonetheless.

Nice and comfortable stay for a reasonable price

Good location (close to Aviva stadium and DART station), nice pub at the ground floor (Gasworks) and friendly staff

My favorite hotel in Dublin

Nice place, great staff
the hotel is situated at ballsbridge area, not far from aviva stadium. the rooms are quite nice and cozy. wi-fi is fine all over the hotel. haven't tried breakfast, as it was not included, but i suppose it is traditional, like in other irish or european hotels. it's not hard to reach any area of dublin, especially if you prefer to walk. everything is situated like 15-20 minutes by walk from here. and there are a lot of places nearby to have food and fun (chop house, ocean's, slattery's, etc.) i've stayed in the hotel for like more than 5 times and definitely will stay again
Hotel Feature Tip: There is a Gasworks pub on a ground floor. They are working until midnight, but you can move to a lodge area then and order drinks on a reception.
