    If you like a small room, untidy floor and industrial extractor fans all day then this is for you! I've stayed in this hotel before and took into account the location and the fact that the building is old. The beds were comfortable. However, this...More

    Outdated. No air conditioning. Tiny, dirty rooms. Soiled bed linens. No screens in windows. Loud music every night until 4 am. Rude staff. Overcharged on bill upon departure. All around huge disappointment. Only saving grace is location. Not worth the money.

    Very centrally based character Victorian hotel. Good value breakfast(E10). . Within walking distance of most central Dublin attractions (5 minutes to Grafton Street, O'Connell street, Dublin Castle etc)

    The hotel is attached to a disco bar. Loud music until 3AM! The nights were warm and there was no ventilation/AC. The staff not the typical Irish hospitality. It is centrally located. Definitely not worth staying. Worst hotel of our month long trip.

    My sincere apologies for the delay in responding. We have two lifts in the property but there are certain areas which have stairs to get access to.
