My three sisters and I arrived at this hotel after a transatlantic flight that landed in Dublin in the early morning. When we checked in, the very friendly and helpful staff member suggested that we have breakfast at a local spot and come back to the hotel for a possible early check-in. True to her word, both rooms were available...

Was leaving too early for the complimentary (delicious) breakfast. Without asking, staff packed up a breakfast with hot coffee and rushed it to my cab as I was leaving for the airport. 6.a.m. Room was available when i arrived.

We really loved this hotel. I travel extensively on business and see a wide variety of hotels. This is in an older building with good sized rooms for the US, much less Europe. Our room on the 6th floor had what appeared to be a queen bed, a twin bed and a sitting area with two full size armchairs and...

The positives - It's centrally located for the usual sites, Guinness and Jameson Tours. The bed was comfortable and water pressure in shower was incredible. The hotel lobby is nice. The room needs to be updated, a full gut. If your looking for a historic hotel, then this may be it. For the money spent a night, look elsewhere.

Excellent location, within walking distance of the town center but close to pubs on lower baggot street. Close to museums and trinity college. Comfortable and quiet rooms. Very helpful staff, free internet in lobby. Good restaurant and again good staff. Felt for what we paid this hotel was very good value. Has parking if you hire a car.
