“Lovely Staff and a decent nights sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

It was the staff that brought my rating of this hotel up, they are all very welcoming and helpful. The room we got was right over the main street so was a bit noisy. The room itself grand for a 2 night stay and good for the price. Only negative was the breakfast, only for it was free I would have been requesting a refund on that.

Room Tip: Ask for one off the street.

Looking for a combination of a hostel and a greasy spoon restaurant? Bingo, you've found it!
You dont need to walk a lot and spare your coins for the bus - everything is in walking distance... But this is the only advantage - the staff is friendly but can't make it forget that the building would deserve some restoration...

We spent one evening in Dublin over the St Paddys day weekend and as we booked late we expected to struggle to find reasonable accommodation, so we were pleasantly surprised. From the moment we were greeted by the 'Director of First Impressions' at reception, the hotel has a lovely friendly vibe. The location is quite central, although Dublin is not too large, so we walked everywhere.
We booked a double room. The view was of a double storey carpark but that wasn't important to us as we were never planning to spend much time in the room. The bed was extremely comfortable and the complimentary Irish breakfast was plentiful. There was a bit of a hole in the wall near the tv and some cords hanging messily, but it didn't look dangerous.
There are two computers in the common area with complimentary internet access and there is wifi in certain areas but we didn't try to access it.
All in all, great service and great value for money.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The reception was friendly and helpful despite our late arrival (almost midnight). We requested a triple room with no carpets and that's what we got.... admittedly not the cleaniest room I've ever slept in but excellent value for money and full of foreigners from all over enjoyng their super breakfast!
Unfortunately there was no room on our return and we ended up in a dump across the road.... so I recommend you book in advance.

Room Tip: they also have rooms with no carpets which personally I find more hygenic

I have visited Dublin many times so I know it's not easy to find reasonable accomodation, until we stayed at The Townhouse.. The interior is gorgeous, staff are friendly and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast is very good.. Its central location is an added bonus, everywhere in the city centre is just a short walk away.. will definitely visit again!
