Well located, good value, good breakfast that's reasonably priced. Wifi fast enough.

I would prefer it if the power sockets in the room were of the type that accept EU throngs in addition to UK-style ones.

Good city centre location for exploration outside of work hours

Room allocated was at the back of the hotel overlooking a very busy taxi rank. Some noise during the early morning hours

Used this as a base for when a group went to a show in Dublin. Excellent location for centre of Dublin, made getting around very easy. Loads of pubs, clubs and food in easy walking district. Nice hotel without trying to be something it is not. Clean and friendly.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, room in good condition and very clean.

Room had a small window, but outside was a large, and very noisy air conditioning cooler unit, so couldn't sleep with the window open, but the room air conditioning was also noisy and the gap under the door let quite a bit of corridor noise in as well.

Excellent city centre location in Dublin. The room represented excellent value for money. Quiet location and there was no external noise noticeable in the room

Poor mobile phone coverage in the hotel. Reliable signal only available at windows or outside - I think that this must be the way the hotel was constructed as the builidng is located in a city centre with excellent coverage.

March 2009

Great location, very close to City Center and shops

Very loud! Especially, rooms on the back side of the hotel. Night life sound until early morning, workers start to clean up night life trash at 6am... no sleep in two nights....
