The hotel itself was really clean, my partner and I arrived on a red eye flight and they checked us in early. The area was walkable and close to all sorts of tour bus pickups. Room was a little small but given the location it makes sense! Wish there had been a clear option in Expedia to include breakfast as it cost 12.5 euro per person- make sure to check, you don’t want to miss the breakfast buffet it is delicious!

Great location and friendly and helpful staff. Secure parking just across the road - with a rate agreed with the hotel. Really enjoyed our stay and found the price pretty good for Dublin city centre.

Beautiful property. Rooms are very nice but very small. Twin beds are so narrow that you cannot turn over. Black out curtains were appreciated. Location in a very busy part of the city close to public transport and within walking distance to most attractions (10-25 minutes). Super helpful and friendly staff. Very urban - like all of Dublin - which means you have a mix of nice and not-so-nice surrounding the hotel.
