It really needs refurbishment
Posted Feb 21, 2017
I was surprised by the facilities provided based on its star. It's in a good location, not in a "center of center" but is ok. about 8 mins walk to temple bar and trinity college. However, the interior of the room must be the oldest one I've ever stayed as a hotel. TVs are the ones in 80s, most basic kettle, a double bed which is literally put together by 2 single beds and mattresses so you could always feel the irritating gap in the middle... The toilet clearly has some problem that it takes only a full flush when you try really hard for more than 10 times! No slippers, Hot water is not consistent for taking shower. No security box, loads of stains mark on the carpet which is quite gross. Stayed there for business trip so not bother spending time changing the room but it's really disappointing. There's no sound proof at all so that you hear everything outside the room, the chat in the hallway, and even worse the traffic noise from the main road outside. Also no wifi in the room but it's listed in the hotel intro so is expected. But the wifi connection in the public area is horribly slow, had a quite hard time trying even just check in my flight. The ladies in the reception are friendly though. In total, it's an old building so it could be a much better and nice place to stay if they upgrade the facilities inside really.
