Hand on heart, I'd stay away

Posted May 30, 2015
Pros: Not much
Cons: Lots
Location: Good location, if you don't mind staying a bit off the main drag. Not the smartest area of the city but I honestly didn't encounter any problems.
Couldn't say I could recommend this place. Although I knew the area wasn't the best I was prepared to go downmarket for a one night stay in Dublin. Next time, I would look to stay in the same area but somewhere a bit better. The place was a bit down at heel to say the least. There was not toilet in the room and the shower was tiny. Reception didn't have a key to give me as a previous guest had taken it. I had to go back down to Reception for them to let me in my room after having used the toilet. All in all, I'd give it a miss.

nahe City Center und dennoch ruhig

Posted May 19, 2015
Pros: Service, Sauberkeit, Fruehstueck
Location: ca 10min Fussweg entfernt vom City Center (Trinity College) und somit auch von Grafton Street (shopping) und Temple Bar (night life)
fuer eine 6 taegige Dublin Reise suchten wir ein preisguenstiges B&B in der Naehe des City Center. Das Avondale Guesthouse hat fuer uns optimal gepasst in Bezug auf Lage und Preis. Wir hatten bei einem frueheren Aufenthalt schon direkt im Zentrum gewohnt, doch da ist es oft bis in die Morgenstunden sehr laut. Im Avondale ist das nicht der Fall. Es war dort angenehm ruhig. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Dusche/WC im Zimmer. Es gibt dort auch Zimmer bei denen das nicht der Fall ist. Das Avondale bezeichnet sich selbst als "We are sure you will agree that the Avondale Bed and Breakfast in Dublin City Center is truely one of Dublins finest low cost budget accommodation B&B's in Dublin City Centre, Ireland." Was das low cost budget betrifft, stimmt das auch, man darf dann allerdings kein 3-Sterne Hotel erwarten. Die Zimmer sind sehr klein, zwischen Bett und Wand sind auf 2 Seiten nur ca 60cm Platz, man kann da sprichwoertlich "nicht umfallen". In unserem Zimmer war nichtmal Platz fuer einen Stuhl und es fand sich ausser dem Bett kein Platz an dem man haette einen Koffer oeffnen koennen, dementsprechend klein war auch Dusche/WC. Fuer uns war das ok, wir wollten da ja nur schlafen und duschen und das hat funktioniert. Das Zimmer war sauber, der Zimmerservice freundlich und gut. Vom im Preis inbegriffenen Fruehstueck waren wir angenehm ueberrascht. Man konnte frei bestellen, was man wollte, bis zum complete Irish breakfast mit eggs, sausage, bacon, and beans.

Ensemble plutôt agréable

Posted Apr 26, 2015 on Hotels
Séjour plutôt agréable dans l'ensemble. Cependant, nous avons séjourner dans la chambre située juste derrière la réception. Nous entendions la sonnette sonner toutes les 5 minutes toute la nuit, de plus, il n'y a pas de double vitrages et la rue est animer jusqu'à tard dans la nuit. Donc mauvais point pour le bruit. Par contre l'hôtel est situé a deux rues adjacentes de O'Connell street, au niveau de l'espèce de pique géant. Donc très bien situé. Petit déjeuner typique, le ménage est fait tout les jours, ils changent les draps et serviettes de bain tout les jours également. Ensemble relativement correct!

To avoid at all cost

Posted Apr 26, 2015 on Hotels
No heating in room. Mentioned it to the receptionist, who did not really care about it. No heating for 3 days! The same happened to a couple who I heard complaining at the reception. The receptionist in question did not seem very helpful. That's a shame since the other ones I spoke to were a lot friendlier and helpful. Hotel is located on a busy street with lots of noise. That's OK when the hotel has double glazed windows, which was not the case here. I was on the 3rd floor and could still hear lots of noise. On top of that there was a crack in the window... not good for the noise and the cold.

Billig, trangt , men nidt i smørøyet

Posted Apr 25, 2015 on Hotels
Hadde ikke store forventninger p.g.a. andre anmeldinger og de ble innfridd. Det vil si rommet var lite og trangt. Vask og veldig liten dusj på rommet og toalett på gangen. Frokosten var ok til prisen: Pølse, egg, bacon, bønner og toast

The place is not as we expected to be.

Posted Apr 11, 2015
Pros: no comments
Cons: Oh!.........................I just said that before
Location: The location is fine
very uncomfortable...................bathroom facilities............ room.......needs some accommodations..........example: a little table to put the luggage............some hooks to hand at least the towel...........a little shelf by the sink to accommodate the toiletry necessities.. The control for the TV..................not working, I had to get up to turn it on and off Breakfast has to be a little early specially for the tourist who has to leave early, The reception people.............fine.

Noisy and cramped hotel

Posted Apr 5, 2015
Room was cramped and unclean. TV didn't work for the entire time we were there. Walls are VERY thin so you can hear everything in the rooms next to you. However location and breakfast were very good

Bad experience in your hotel

Posted Feb 9, 2015 on Hotels
The room was ok in the first day and no one clean the room the second day. The hotel area were full of cigarette smoke which was uncomfortable for non smokers. The room was cold due to the central heater which was switched off while lodgers are still around. This made feel uncomfortable through my stay in your hotel.
