Okay, it has been awhile since I last stayed here, but I have suggested Globetrotters to countless people since and they all gave the same review I did. The food was great, the people were great, having access to free wifi was wonderful! The staff couldn't have been more helpful! Yes, I stayed here in 2012 (I know, I know,... More

He went beyond expectations to help me arrange flights and was very pleasant. The breakfast was delicious, especially the Irish soda bread. The hotel was centrally located and they had lots of information and coupons at the desk.

What an absolutely fantastic place. I studied abroad in Dublin and stayed here for a few weeks with nine other people. We were given a "penthouse-esque" apartment-style room, complete with a living room, rooftop balcony, kitchen, bathroom, nine beds (very comfortable) and an extra room with an extra bed. Our "apartment" was cleaned daily and was perfect for our living... More

For 89 EUR for a double in high season is cute and clean, a little bit kitsch but the desk person was very kind and helpful. Good location and easy conection to the airport with the airlink. I think is not wheelchair accesible since you have to go to the first floor and then take the elevator.

Stayed with a large group for St Patrick's Day. The service of the staff at the reception & in the dining room for breakfast each morning was amazing!! Truly made up for everything else... The bathroom in our room was lacking - hole in the shower wall was actually covered up by a black bin bag & tape. The taps... More

The staff was very friendly. They accommodated our large group of 15 easily and gave us large rooms to ourselves which allowed us to have some privacy. It is affordable so do not expect to be walking into a 5 star hotel. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because of the location. It is not... More

We had a 3 person private room and it was great! One of the cups in the room was dirty when we got there but everything else was clean. Great location, less than 10 minute walk to the spire on O'Connell street.
