Great central location, walking distance to the Latin Quarter, restaurants, pubs and shopping. We spent two nights and toured around the area (Connemara and Cliffs of Mohr are easy drives).

a/c didn’t cool or circulate the air very well. Weak shower pressure and took a long whole for the water temp to stabilize. Old hotel and very noise. No noise reduction between floors and anyone walking down the hall was easily heard

The hotel did not honor a confirmed early check-in. The Italian manager refused to let us check-in prior to 4 pm. That would be understandable if the other staff member at the front desk wasn't checking in other guests and offering them ice cream at least 20 minutes prior to 4 pm. We were allowed to check-in no earlier than 4, exactly. The extra time to clean the room was not used - the bathroom was not fully cleaned and there was mold in the tub. We dropped off laundry for laundry service with the front desk with more notice than was required. Not only was the laundry not done the next day by the guaranteed time, it was not done at all, and we were told the hotel didn't know where it was. Second time stsying here. I will absolutely not stay here again. The staff we've encountered have not been kind nor helpful. There are plenty of other hotels in the same area. They have hone significantly downhill since our previous stay here.
