Friendly hotel in great location

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: I loved the old fashioned charm of this hotel.
Cons: Please keep it as it is.
Location: Excellent Hugh Lane Gallery and Gate Theatre nearby. Just off O'Connell Street leading to the Liffey and all main attractions.
This was a perfect hotel for me as I was travelling alone. The staff in both the hotel and restaurant couldn't have been more helpful and charming. And the Wednesday evening entertainment was really good.

The Castle That Wasn't a Castle

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: Friendly and helpful employees.
Cons: Major refurbishments
Location: Convenient to O'Connell Street and Hop On - Hop Off Bus route. 10 minute walk to Croke Park.
I stayed for a week and found the hotel to have a relatively good location relative to O'Connell Street. My fourth floor single room was compact, but accomodating. The plumbing was poor. Water pressure in the shower amounted to a trickle; and hot water was variable - from non-existent to scalding. TV had four channels. Street and sidewalk traffic noise required ear plugs at night. Breakfast was unvaried from day to day, but OK. Service at the basement restaurant was slow. Receptacle in outdoor patio smoking area had butts overflowing. No laundry service.

The Castle Hotel

Posted Jul 31, 2014
This hotel is middle of the road and is in a good location for touring around Dublin city centre. The staff were all very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. The room was quite tired looking and the bathroom needed a good clean but on the whole if you're looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful to stay for a few nights, The Castle Hotel fits the bill.

Very nice, just what you would expect!

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: I liked how quirky it was and the decent breakfast and tea in my room.
Cons: Its a bit musty in the halls and its several hotels combined I think to one rambling place. It had lots of stairs but there is a lift.
Location: Hop on Hop off bus right across the street. Everything is within walking distance that you might need, Temple Bar and plenty of restaurants and shops
Nice little hotel, tight quarters but decent and clean. Good full breakfast. The shower curtain was a little annoying and the TV was in an odd place. I had to plug the tea pot in on the floor. These oddities were livable, great price and service. Its old but clean and not a far walk from any of the action in Dublin!

Great Location

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: Live entertainment and location
Cons: Ceiling fans to move the air (especially in July)
Location: Right on O'Connell street so close to everything
Great location and experience. Note that YES the hotel is sometimes a little noisy based on location and the bed size is different than the US and not nearly as comfortable - but is is great by European standards. There is no air-conditioner so we do wish we had brought a fan with us. The owner talked to us in the lobby and gave a very personal touch. You won't do better for the location, price, and the bar downstairs with live music was a fantastic addition.

Very convenient city centre hotel in Dublin

Posted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: Excellent value for money. clean spacious room, friendly staff, excellent choice of inclusive breakfast which ran through to 10am, free Wifi
Cons: Very minor issue with non adjustable shower head, lack of channels available on TV Very minor grips really
Location: Very central, easy access to the main shopping area, the river bank and the Temple Bar entrainment area
Very enjoyable first stay in Dublin in this convenient hotel in the heart of the city, the staff were very attentive and helpful both in reception, housekeeping and in the breakfast room. My room was spacious for a single room with a comfortable bed large enough to accommodate two. The room was clean with all the comfort of home you could need.
