Im so disappointed we have let you down. Sorry We rarely miss in so many areas and this has given a bad impression overall. Regarding the cash payment issue we do not accept cash without credit or debit card. Bills may be settled in cash but to check in a verified credit or debit card must be presented. Its also...

Absolute is a modern, agreeably priced hotel on the river. As with most city hotels, getting to it is either painless or stressful depending on the direction from which you are coming, but the concierge was wonderfully helpful with local directions and maps. Our room mostly faced the adjacent wing but we watched the sunset over King John's tower. The...

Really surprised by this place. The lobby is great, they have a small gym on site (24hrs) and the rooms was pretty sweet. By far one of the better places we stayed- can't beat the price. We didn't try the restaurant onsite but it looked nice and the prices were fair.

Stayed here for a single night on a business trip. The hotel looks very unassuming from outside but has a spacious, modern interior with excellent rooms at very affordable prices. Room was excellently equipped with lots of amenities, large comfortable bed and lots of light. Hotel was quiet and staff were very helpful and friendly. Located just a few minutes'...

This was a very nice hotel, very modern and quite comfortable. The only problem we had was our room was near snack machines and a group of noisy people were out there making noise trying to get into it. So stay far from lifts and vending machines. Very nice otherwise.

I was going to a conference and the organisers had booked us into this hotel and they had requested a disabled room as I am a wheelchair user. I expected the worst as I have often found that adapted rooms are the worst. I was so wrong. It was a very large room with wonderful views and yes it was...

Great rooms, friendly staff and the restaurant has excellent food and breakfast. Modern hotel right in the city, within walking distance to shopping etc. The only downside when we stayed was the parking - not much of it.

I like meeting people to follow up on business issues in the lobby and mezzanine level of Limerick's Absolute Hotel because it's always friendly and convenient. On the last two occasions, I realised the Absolute's Hotel wifi is faster at 5 Mbps than what I can get in many Limerick coffee shops. Plus, the Absolute's fresh-baked pastry is always a...

We stayed in an executive room on the fifth floor with a river view. The room was enormous with a king size bed. It also had air conditioning which was a bonus at this price. A lovely breakfast and free car parking within a short walk of the centre. I hope we will be back soon.

Only negative review I would give on this hotel was on arrival we were asked for a credit card for security on the room even though we were paying cash. We did not have one and the receptionist said there was nothing she could do. luckily it was a wedding we were at and a friend had one for us...
