An older style, classic hotel in the heart of the city and in the middle of the action and where you want to be. I requested a quiet room as the hotel is situated on O'Connell Street. An excellent room on the inner side, lots of space - classic room, and bathroom with separate bath and shower. Very comfortable, very...

I picked this hotel because the airport bus stopped outside and the hop on hop off bus number one stop for both routes, were outside the front of the hotel. My decision was well made and our day trips were easy to complete. The hotel staff were all so friendly and helpful, and the room plus facilities made our stay,...

Stayed one night at this hotel in May 2015. Nice standard double room, plenty of space, good sized bathroom. I had a car so parking was easy using the car park at the rear of the building (first left past the hotel, then left again). Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Only small complaint was that the buffet breakfast...
