This is a very good hotel! It’s situated on Merrion Street Lower diagonally opposite it’s sister hotel The Davenport. Both of which interchange services by the way; so if you fancy a drink in the Davenport during your stay you can do that. It’s fairly well situated for buses, coaches and the DART railway – with Pearse Street station about...

I always stay here when in Dublin for work at Trinity College. Very friendly. Comfy beds. Beautifully clean. Convenient for Trinity College and easy walk to centre. ️Breakfast is copious. A rather old fashioned place which suits me. Lovely staff... Multi lingual too if you need it!

The rooms are ok, the breakfast ok, the staff ok, and a bit pricey for what it is. Nothing bad to say but nothing good either. The location is the best of this hotel, surrounded by museums and parks, right in the centre, opposite to Trinity College but not very noisy.
