Great location. Staff are nice. Rooms are not great. Bathroom bits falling off, etc. Rooms small and very, very, very basic. I mean EXTREMELY basic. But if you just want a place to sleep this is fine....WiFi kept disconnecting which was very annoying

Two night stay and this Hotel is the perfect base from which to explore Dublin. Located off O'Connell Street everything is within walkable distance. It is also right next to the bus stop for the 747 bus service which runs directly to and from Dublin Airport daily (€12 open

Hi What time is breakfast ,as we have quite an early flight
I believe it’s 7 AM. And I believe you have to make a reservation with a reception the night before. If you have an early flight it looks like the restaurant will not be open before you leave but there are some restaurants on the corner café type that serve a light breakfast

Dear Christopher H, Thank you for reaching out to us. The taxi usually adds on one euro extra per passenger. So the fare is about 25€ and the total should not be more than 30,00 € with four passengers. Kind regards, Zoran

I would have thought you could ask the restaurant manager and they maybe able to accommodate you.

Both are provided. The hotel was also provided electrical adapters because ours didn't work.

"Quiet rooms are overlooking the alley between the hotel and the next building. Overlooking the front of the hotel could be noisy."
"Our room was not facing the street and was quiet."
"Corner rooms are larger"
"They have single to quad rooms which were great for us"
"Ask for executive suite."
