Near the Temple Bar area of DublinPosted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: The convenient location.
Location: Near the Temple Bar, River Livey, pubs/restaurants, the main cathedrals - convenient to everything including bus stops.
The hotel was sufficient for our needs - clean with very helpful staff. I think younger people would really appreciate the location of this hotel as it's around the corner from the Temple Bar (pedestrian street) with all the restaurants, pubs, music. Because of the location, it was noisy well into the wee hours of the morning.

Nice HotelPosted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Very clean, staff was very helpful.
Cons: The shower is very small and confining.
Location: Temple bar area is full of bars and restaurants. There is entertainment in the streets. Close to shopping.
The hotel was nice, everything was clean. There is a bar in the bottom level and the patrons can be loud on the street sometimes. Hotel is in Temple Bar which puts you in the right place for the night life. Within walking distance of shopping and restaurants.

In Temple Bar area.Posted Jun 26, 2014
Right on the edge of Temple Bar area; however, room was tiny and noisy. This was last hotel stayed at during 12 day trip to Ireland and staff were not very friendly or helpful - especially compared with other hotels we had been to. Temple Bar area is overpriced compared to other parts of Dublin and Ireland. Singles and young couples would be best suited for a stay here. Families and older would probably find better accomadation north of the Temple Bar area.

Good Location - Rooms a bit crampedPosted Jun 23, 2014
Cons: Update facilities
Location: Located close to most torusit attractions
The rooms were a bit cramped. Bathroom was good, roomy and well presented if a little dated. -Had problems with television -. staff were attentive to trying to get it fixed, and provided a small discount for inconvenience. Recent study on EU costs shows Ireland is fifth most expensive place in Europe. All things considered this hotel was not bad value for money.

In the heart of pub areaPosted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Central location
Cons: Attitude of some, not all, staff
Location: Minutes from Trinity College with The Book of Kells, the Liffey and the main shopping streets and pups galore.
The hotel staff varied widely from pleasant to irritable and although the room was clean and the linen pristine the fittings in the bathroom were tired i.e. cracked wash basin and chipped bath. On the plus side location perfect for sight seeing was good. On the whole perfect for young people who are out late partying. Perhaps a bit too near the pups and clubs for the older generation.

Location, location, location!Posted Jun 11, 2014
Cons: Wifi in the guest rooms would have been nice.
Yes, it's loud at night - so bring some earplugs! You're in Temple Bar! Actually, in spite of being right over the nightclub, even our Saturday-night stay wasn't nearly as loud as I expected and - with earplugs - sleeping was not a problem at all. And you simply cannot beat the location, on the edge of Temple Bar, near a ton of great pubs, shopping, restaurants, a stone's throw from Trinity College and Dublin Castle, and even Grafton Street, St Stephen's Green and St Patrick's Cathedral were within easy walking distance. The hotel is old, yes. The rooms aren't the most modern, for sure. But it has a certain charm, the staff are friendly and helpful, there's live music and cold beer in the pub - what more could you want? If you don't show up expecting too much, you will be pleasantly surprised. We were.

Good base campPosted Jun 8, 2014
Overall, a pleasant enough stay. We stayed for four nights, so we had a decent grip on things by the time we left. The wifi, contrary to what I had read, does reach the rooms for the most part. The rooms themselves are basic, but were kept clean every day by the staff. The reception staff was "middle of the road", not really rude but not overly enthusiastic, either. We used it as a central location hotel, and it worked just fine for us. The only real knock is the fact that Temple Bar is very noisy at night, but you're aware of that ahead of time. All in all, it's a good hotel to choose if you want to be within walking distance of the best of Dublin.

Sketchy hotel in sketchy areaPosted Jun 6, 2014
Don't stay here whatever you do. This hotel is awful!!!! The beds moved if you bumped into them and the windows didn't shut fully. The toilet moved when you sat on it (and I am not obese) and a creepy cab driver continuosly called for my room even when I didn't ever call for a cab to which the staff did nothing until I freaked out on them and they stated there were cameras throughout the hotel. Whatever you do, STAY AWAY FROM HERE!!!!
