These Holiday Inn -hotels are sound choices but somewhat dull. Their Dublin City Centre -hotel is of good quality with no major flaws. There could have been more wall hooks and shelves in the room. Shower’s water flow was poor. Long walks in the corridors. It took 90-100 steps from the elevator to the room. Breakfast was included. It was OK, can be crowded plus cheese and vegetables like tomato were missed. But all in all, we liked our stay. The location is excellent.

The best feature of this hotel is the location. Walking distance to everywhere we want to go and bus stop is right across the street if you need it. It is noisy at night as the music and especially people leaving the night club can disturb your sleep. I knew about before I booked and it didn’t really bother me that much. Breakfast in the hotel is ok, nothing special. If you have to pay extra for it, it’s probably not worth it. Room was clean, staff was polite and helpful, and I would definitely stay again in this hotel if visited Dublin.

The hotel is in a most convenient location and very good value when you book well in advance. Bus, taxi and luas are all available close by, and many sights and shopping are all within walking distance. The room was very clean, be comfortable and staff were most attentive at breakfast. Yasmin on Reception was a joy to deal with and is such a wonderful Ambassador for the hotel. Will be back.

I barely slept on my second night in the hotel. My room 121 was directly above a club which was blaring tunes out with heavy bass until 3am on a Thursday night. I went down to request a room change but was told they were fully booked and nothing could be done. Despite bringing silicone ear plugs it was too loud to make any impact, I stacked pillows on top of my head and still didn’t get to sleep until after the club closed around 3am. Needless to say I’m exhausted today and not looking forward to a full day of work and flight home later. I spoke to my colleague this morning who was sleeping on the 5th floor and she could hear it up there too. So I’ll be requesting a different hotel next time I travel

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, this really means a lot to us and help us improving our services. I am really sorry to hear the pub behind us has affected your stay so badly. We do everything we can to minimise the impact on our guests: all our rooms have got double or triple glazed windows and there are always complimentary ear plugs on the bed. Our location is very central with all the good and bad of this: all the major attractions and facilities are at walking distance, but the area is always busy and, unfortunately, noisy sometimes. Thank you for choosing us, I wish you all the best! regards, Ema S. GSM

When you’re staying in Dublin location is everything - and this hotel is in an ideal central situation. Although it’s part of a ‘budget’ hotel chain, the room quality (albeit a little compact) is very good. With good quality double, double glazing and air conditioning it’s possible to sleep without the noise of the late night revelers Booking at an early date I was able to obtain a reasonable room rate but, despite the location, I would not be happy to pay in excess of 200 euros a night for a budget hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights 4th and 5th May, couldn’t fault the hotel or the staff. Rooms were lovely and clean, good breakfast to set you up for the day. Staff were so lovely and couldn’t do enough for you, one particular lady stands out who worked during the day, at breakfast she made sure everyone was looked after, sorted my vegan sausages 😃 Hotel is very central to all shops, bars and buses, couldn’t ask for more thank you. I highly recommend this hotel you won’t be disappointed.

The place feels very new and modern. The location is decent- essentially it's the furthest north you can go in what I would call the tourist ring in Dublin. Most sites are no more than a 15 minutes walk south away and the immediate area is interesting and while touristy is somewhat more local feeling than the temple bar area. Breakfast is well above average for a holiday inn in the U.S. , though maybe not as impressive for European standards. Semi decent sausages, irish bacon, scrambled eggs, croissants, toast, butter, jams, cereal, coffee, tea- not much more you can expect in a holiday inn express. Note there is a huge sports bar/club with a large outdoor area called the Living Room behind the hotel that closes at 2:30am. The hotel has two tiers of windows that do a decent job of filtering out the sound. There was still a bit of noise that came through, especially when playing bassy music. We are probably average sensitive sleepers and it was not a big issue for us. Being north you have very easy access to the airport. The private Aircoach 700 bus leaves every 30 minutes across the street and is 8 euros. There are also public buses that take longer and do not take card, or a taxi is 20-30 minutes.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 10 days. It is centrally located to many attractions. It was easy to walk to many places but if you prefer buses there are many stops outside hotel area including the tram The staff were very nice. Breakfast buffet was included and it was plentiful.

It's 2AM and the nightclub might as well be in our room. Why on earth are you not warned about this... Checked in and subjected to a loud late night bar/club is painful and now I can't sleep due to the clearly audible music coming from underneath our room. The hotel must know this is an issue but don't warn you
