This is really a nice hotel

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: As mentioned above.
Cons: All's great!!!!
Location: Market places are very near. All major brands and the temple Bar area are also nearby. So you can walk for a great evening.
The hotel is in the heart of the city. All the major markets are walkable distance. The staff is really nice & helpful. The service is fast. Breakfast is fine. Overall a nice place to stay. If I go to Dublin again, I will stay there only. Cheers!!!

Good location, close enough to the city.

Posted Sep 29, 2014
The hotel foyer, restaurant & bar was built directly under a rail line, and the hotel rooms are too close for comfort.

Nice hotel close to station

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Decor lovely throughout Clean and tidy
Location: 15 minute walk from O'Connell Street, Connelly station across the street, Luas and bus station 5 min walk. This hotel is out of town.
I was recommended this hotel by a friend who had stayed there last year. Unfortunately my initial impressions were not as great as my friends. My husband and I arrived at lunchtime so we couldn't check in early which wasn't a problem as wanted to go and see the sights. The hotel stored our luggage. Checked in by friendly staff late in the evening but informed that no breakfast was included because we had a discounted rate. At over £100 a night I didn't exactly think this was a 'discounted rate' and was disappointed that there was no breakfast and I wasn't paying £11 per person per day for a fry up! Our first room was on the lower ground floor on the road side which was incredibly noisy despite closing the window. The air conditioning didn't work and was held together with sellotape. We requested to be moved to a room where the facilities were working. This request was granted and we were promptly moved as the member of staff was unable to fix the air con. We only moved 2 rooms up but it was on the car park side of the hotel so much quieter. I still felt that we were in the 'cheap rooms' down in the basement due to the receptionists attitude about booking the room and its 'discounted rate' again. Room was clean and comfortable. Overall the hotel stay was ok as out all day so only sleeping there.

Very nice hotel.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in
Cons: Having an elevator off the lobby that takes you to your room
The hotel is located near public transportation and within a few blocks walking distance from Dublin city center. The hotel is very clean and the staff was most accommodating. The only drawback, and it is small, is that you must walk up some stairs to get to the elevators that take you to your room. It is not convenient when lugging a heavy suitcase. I would stay there again.

Nice Hotel

Posted Aug 9, 2014
Pros: Excellent bar/restaurant with good food and drinks and excellent, friendly service.
Cons: The toilet didn't always flush and the room key worked inconsistently. T.V. was very old.
Location: Right across from the train station. 10 minute walk to O'Connell Street, 20 minutes to Temple Bar.
Positive stay at the hotel. Reasonably priced for what you get. Shuttle bus to and from the airport for 6 euros. Staff helped plan tours out of the city and recommended places to visit.

Massive Let Down

Posted Jul 17, 2014
As excited as I was about initially staying at the North Star, I was quickly let down. We had several problems with our room that each took multiple calls and visits to the front desk to address. Each issue was met with indifference by the various employees and took several days to either remedy, or get a solid answer about. All this and we were supposedly given an upgrade to a premium room which to be honest we considered to be a standard room anyway. The bottom line being that we won't be returning and we definitely won't be recommending the hotel..my advise to other future customers is to look else where.

Rooms are a bit hot but great hotel

Posted Jul 15, 2014
The hotel and hotel restaurant are both lovely. The interior of the rooms are nice and much better than I expected, however, the rooms were extremely hot making the stay uncomfortable. You had to sleep with the window wide open and 2 fans on, also there was a train line right outside the bedroom window so could be a bit noisy at times. Apart from the heat and noise I would definitely recommend this hotel, it's a great location, lovely staff and very clean. The bar and restaurant are great, serving lovely food. Overall, I had a good stay.

Just a good place to go back to after a busy day. Great bar and restaurant. Clean and high quality conditions. Friendly and helpful staff with good recommendations for what to do and where to go.
