Cheap place yes. Old place yes. Dirty very much yes (we went and bought towels as the ones there were disgusting). There seems to be rubbish everywhere, duvets had stains, dust everywhere, just really filthy and old and rank. Would have left immediately but no other accomodation available.

The single bed room I was staying at was so mismatched, old and needed complete makeover. Since this was an alternative arrangement for me (since I had a bad experience with another property) I had agreed to this without looking it up online or reading reviews. But at least they had an availability during the busy holiday period (Dec 2015)....

The room and bathroom (even after requested re-clean) were dirty and smelly. Manager unfriendly and abusive. Left without using the room - loosing my payment for 2 nights accommodation. Do not believe the photos you see on the internet to avoid disappointment.

This property is in a great location, but unfortunately needs a complete makeover. The room had mismatched furniture, tired and dirty linen and appliances. The main bed was a rolly foldaway bed with nylon sheets. The hand basin in the toilet was just that, small enough to get a hand in. Was woken at 3am by a car alarm, 4am...

we stayed there for quite some time and we have an excellent experience there. The owner was very helpful and always tried his best to maintain a good staying environment there, Each room was also cleaned on weekly basis. Very high value for money for accommodation in Parnell.

As in when you open the front door of your room and have "that" feeling .. the first impression that makes you smile and feel "ahh- home" or ... "Oh my god I want to run away". The one person band that looks after top quality tea and coffee sachets and makes sure the folds in the bed covers are...

Stayed two nights last weekend to visit friends. Extremely disappointing. Advert in AA magazine is deceiving. Old, tired, dirty, very run down. Management rude and very unhelpful. Would not recommend to anyone.

I've stayed here before back in 2009 in the "Edwardian apartment" so thought I'd try it again as it was a good room. When I booked that option again, upon arrival I got taken upstairs to a dark windowless hovel. The pizza box from whoever was there prior wasn't cleaned away, the bed was something not even as good as...

I wish I had read these reviews before staying here! Do not book! This place is absolutely not a good option. The management is grumpy, the place is full of construction tools and mess and the room was dirty and poorly maintained. Damp, smelly and scummy. Stained sheets, dirty walls, broken electrical fittings, rotting lino, cracked basin, missing lightbulbs, etc...

Hotel of poor standard, very old furniture, unkept standard of accommodation is best description, cobwebs, stained carpet, not clean etc Refund requested after first night but manager refused to credit remaining two nights. I left and checked into Quest down the road, steer clear of this hotel if you expect minimum 3 star level accommodation.
