Hotel needs total overall to bring up to required modern standards - floors squeak when walked on, sink had no plug, flooring in bathroom coming up, TV was ancient and did not work anyway. First room given - the radiator did not work so room was like an ice box so has to be asked to move which the hotel did to a room where the radiator worked. Everything needs ripping out and new modern furniture put in plus re decorated all over.

The only positive is its closeness to lots of bars in the Temple Bar area. Our room was very very old, warn out a falling apart. The bed had more lumps and bumps than the grand canyon although the bedding was clean. It absolutely stank of smoke which got into all our clothes & into our skin and hair. The paint was chipping off the walls and was chipped off all the MDF units.The floor in the bathroom was so worn the only pattern left was a grey mouldy mottled looking patch. Don't waste your money staying here. Spend £20 more for a better hotel. Youth hostel would have had a more comfier bed and usable bathroom. Nothing like the picture. The floor, bedding, sink and toilet were clean. Imagine the TV series Rising Damp and you'll be spot on! Horrid! Oh yes and the disco goes on until 2.30 a.m. Walls are thinner than tracing paper and the floor boards....well I'll leave that to your imagination. Never again - ever!

The first room I got in the 3rd floor was smelling to cigarette badly, so then I got one in the 2nd floor looking better but with an old TV and at night time is impossible to sleep because there is a pub downstairs with live music. I should have stayed in the 3rd floor.
