Nice hotel - only a 15-20 min walk to center

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: Helpful staff and great location, close enough to walk to city center but far away enough to make it a bit more quite :)
Cons: A mini fridge would have been great!
Location: Within 100 yards: Jameson Distellery, The Cobblestone Bar, grocery market, coffee shop, LUAS tram stop, kids playground and various restaurants.
Staff was very friendly and helpfull with requests and answering questions about town. Hotel was only a 20 minute ride from the airport. The Smithfield area seems to have a good amount of young people. I'm not sure if there was a University or college near by. But across the street was the Jameson Distellery Tour and it was great! There's also a really great bar on King St. (100 yards away) called Cobblestone. Great authentic pub with live music almost nightly. I think the hotel location was perfect, just far away enough from the center to make it a bit more quite but close enough to walk to Trinity college/Temple Bar/Guinness House/St. Patrick and Dublin Zoo. There was also a LUAS (local tram) stop right by the hotel and adjacent to us was a grocery store, coffee shop and a few restaurants as well! The only down thing was the rooms did not have a mini fridge and the beds were a little stiff.

Good European accommodations but...

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Nice hotel with pleasant staff, however, could have had better air circulation considering there is no air conditioning at the hotel. Although the temperature is cool in Ireland there was no way to circulate outside air into the room. For example we only had a very small window that opened and there was no fan. Also, beds need more pillows, as the pillows are super flat. No gym or workout room either for those wondering. There is a health club next door, but they charge way too much for a daily pass (more than 15 euros). Overall, hotel is what it claims to be a 3 star hotel.

Overall, it was good stay. We found the ventilation system in the bathroom wasn't very good so It got very hot in there. Location was basically pretty good, although there was always some kind of strange activity on the Square

Cons: New mattresses, toiletries in bathroom, microwaves and/or refrigerators in rooms.
Location: Location is not good. It is quite far from the center of town and only a few restaurants nearby. It is within walking distance of the Guinness brewery
Location of hotel is not close to the center of Dublin. There is one market next to the hotel and two or three nearby restaurants-that is it. Restaurant in the hotel is rather expensive. The beds in our room were hard and very uncomfortable. I woke up with a backache every morning. No toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, lotion) were offered in the bathroom so bring your own.

Convenient location.

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Staff very helpful.
Cons: A sign directing you to the hotel might be helpful near the canal.
Location: Location okay. Need to walk a bit (15 to 20 minutes) or take public transportation to major sights. Walk to canal to get to sights. Other ways iffy
Hotel staff very helpful. Walkable to major sights. Area right by hotel fine.

Nice hotel pretty good location.

Posted Aug 9, 2014
The hotel was nice and was pretty close to most tourist stuff and the tram was just down the hill. The only bad side was no ac and there wasn't a window that opened it was a balcony outside which connected to every other one so didn't want to leave it open all night. A store next door and a few restaurant And pubs within a 5 minute area

Helpful staff and practical hotel for our trip.

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Location was ideal, comfortable rooms, staff were the people who topped the stay off.
Cons: Room temperature on occasions got very warm in parts of the hotel.
Location: Jameson Distillery a stone throw away. Temple Bar (5-10 mins walk) Jervison shopping centre (5-10mins walk)
Enjoyed our stay and hotel was nicely located being a bit out of the city but close enough to walk into the centre (5-10mins) Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable they knew who you were. Hotel and facilities were good/practical for what we required plus clean and comfortable, shop located next door to the hotel was really handy plus transport links closeby. We were part of a wedding group so it was also handy that we were all on similar floors or closeby. They were really good at co-ordinating our transport on the day too ensuring we go to the venue on time.

Easy to find next to the Old Jamison Distilliary

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Good Location, nice staff, quiet area.
Cons: Information about the tram which gives access to Dublin. How to use it to gain maximum valve for money!
Location: Very convenient to shops. eating establishments and entertainment in Dublin.
The Hotel is in a excellent location. There is a very lovely supermarket/coffee shop next door. A cinema is located near by in an underground complex with multiple screens. Not only are the cinemas easily accessed from the hotel but the underground parking/cinemas are very, very unique. I found them to be - overwhelming. The "Generator" located on the old Jamison's site is excellent for winding down and dropping in for a drink when "out on the town". Access to Dublin's city centre is easy by the tram near the hotel. My wife and I found it to be an unique experience unlike any other break we ever had in Dublin.
