I booked this hotel direct and got a great deal including free breakfast. I booked a twin room but asked if possible to have a larger room to make it easier for my Mum who was coming with me. I also advised that we would be arriving in Dublin early and an early check in would be appreciated if possible.... More

The overall experience was excellent. The hotel very clean, rooms spacious and spotless. The location was the best, about 20 meters from the main street, O'Connell Street. Hardly heard any noise as the hotels is at the end of a cul-de-sac. If you walk out the hotel and turn left theres a little shop over the road on the corner,... More

The staff was very helpful, my room clean and comfortable and the restaurant was excellent. I had a basic double room and, while... More

When looking for accommodation in Dublin we found that many hotels were overpriced for what was being offered so we decided to go for a name we trusted. Although still pricey we found the hotel to be very central and an ideal location for seeing all the sites and transfer point to and from the airport. All staff we interacted... More

Very good hotel. Clean, modern, walking distance to the Temple area. You can take bus from the airport, which stops next to the hotel. I took taxi, which is cheaper than other European cities.
