Dublin is an expensive place to stay. I was in search of a hotel in the hub of the energy, reasonably priced. I booked on expedia and the reviews were average. After 8 days in Ireland... staying at Air B&B's and B&B's in the countryside, i was exploring Dublin on my last day. After a long day on the road to reach downtown Dublin, I struggled greatly to even locate this hotel. Im a solo traveler and had a rental car... I will say if you like to be in the mix of Dublin energy, this *IS* a great location. hands down. its in walking distance of virtually everything a tourist would want. there is NO parking for this hotel. I went into 3 different parking garages until I revisited their website to find out they have a contract with a parking garage 4 blocks away. it was $40 for 36 hours of parking time. be ready for an additional cost if you plan to walk everywhere and leave your car for a bit. its a hassle that you cant even drop your bags at the hotel first and then go park. I ended up lugging all my luggage four blocks thru crowded streets to their lobby. the front staff was friendly and it was a speedy check in. I was expecting a somewhat elegant hotel room from the photos on their website. Im laughing writing this becasue as others stated, ITS DATED!!! the hair dryer looks like something from Ghostbusters, there was literally A PUNCHED HOLE in the wall that had a piece of painted TAPE to "hide" it, i went to open the window to let some air in becuase it was stuffy and stale smelling... the window sheers LITERALLY FELL OFF THE WALL. i left them on the floor. -its loud. Really Loud at night... and when its hot out, you need the windows open... -did I mention its old? the nightstand lamp had that old Crumbly thing that happens after too many years and too hot of a light bulb. - the shower tempature was hot then cold then hot then cold. I was afraid to crank up the hot levels because I was concerned it would surge and give me a second degree burn. After arriving, the curtains falling off the wall and marveling at the hole in the wall, I decided I was starving and needed to eat something. I didnt feel like venturing out into the crowds as I had been traveling for 8 hours... so I thought I would goto the Hotel Resturant. IT WAS CLOSED DOWN. nothing. nobody. empty! at this point, I was ready to pack it up and head back to the country! I went down to the lobby and she told me that the resturant was indefintely closed but to try the bar, they were open. OK! IM EXCITED! FOOD AND A COCKTAIL! I walked into the basically deserted bar area. I felt like I was in a bad movie at this point. The bar staff was nice enough as I asked what they had for food. I could see that it was a mexican themed bar at one point or another. He told me they had 5 items on the menu... none of which were Mexican themed. I ended up choosing the most appetizing.. a Hamburger and a cesar salad. it was good and was food so I was happy. The bar was dead though. SO much for a lively last night in Dublin without having to put much energy into it! Overall? its dated, needs a refresh/upgrade, they need to figure out the resturant situation. they advertise a resturant and they dont have a working one. Location is good, parking is horrible and the amenities... there arent any. The Beds are uncomfortable and the pillows... they were flat as pancakes. the bed was like 3" lower after you slept in it at night! Just a note: I considered cancelling this reservation but sadly, I was inside the penalty window so I had to stay with the reservation. its definitely what you pay for... if I were to do it over? Id stay on the outskirts of Dublin, on the HOP ON HOP OFF route and get a good nights sleep. Collapse
I think it was colonel mustard with the 1950's hairdryer...

Upon walking in the foyer I wasn't expecting a great deal with vintage decor and rugged walls but let's give it a go. We were given a key to our room on the top floor. On exiting the lift I felt like jack torrance's son minus the tricycle waiting to be greeted by the twins in the shining! Needless to say this place was far away from my imagination! We entered our room, or squat, call it as you please. The carpets frayed at the edges and came away from all walls, worn with black stains and questionable liquids. Give it where it's due, it's and old place but what's a bit of carpet! Walked further in to discover a box tv, although nostalgic was echoing and had to be turned on full volume to hear anything! Not only that there was only about 3 channels that worked. The beds looked okay but the lampshades on the bedside tables had seen better days! Ripped and torn. Just take the thing out! The room was sweltering so I went to open the window only to discover blood on the voiles. Not sure what had happened but didn't look pretty. The blood was also on the curtains that looked like they had been shredded by a petrified cat! There was a trouser press in the room. Didn't think anyone had used one since 1992. Now, the bathroom. I was extremely disspleased with this. The grout in the shower was brown, no white to be seen anywhere. The sink looked like it had been dropped and the re grouted. The limescale was plastered all over the brass taps. No where to put soap, just leave it on the side. I did have a shower but I felt like I needed a shower when I came out, the shower curtain was rotten and kept touching me! I felt like Norman bates was going to burst in any second! The hairdryer had been dragged through the 1950s and had the velocity of a low impact fart! The wifi is none existent! £100 to stay in this dump, they should be paying me to stay here! Positives. After spending 10 hours standing at slane castle, it was a bed! Not too comfy bed but it was a bed. Collapse
I think it was Professor Plum with the trouser press in room 511!

Upon arrival seemed a bit lacklustre on the outside. Sadly the shabbiness wasn't exclusive to the ground floor. I was glad the lift worked though as had it broke we'd have been a bit stuck what with am emergency phone that has a lose cord hanging! So onto the room..... don't know where to start. Stains all over the carpet looked like someone dropped numerous ashtrays and rubbed the ash into it but couldn't be atsed to clean it up! Wear slippers or socks. Blood on the voile was interesting, wonder what happened there? Ripped curtains, rusty grouting, dated hairdryer ( I'm sure I've seen these in antique/vintage electrical stores). Didn't even wanna shower it was minging. For £110 a night without breakfast is scandalous. I wouldn't chance the breakfast if the room is anything to go by. Tv is a 1980's special sat in a weird wooden box, need a stair lift for me neck to be able to view as it's height level with the pillows. Weird echo sound eminates from within. Awful yellow walls. Uragh just get me out now! Collapse
Great if it could be renovated.

This hotel is really in the best location--in between Temple Bar, O'Connell Street, Grafton Street, St. Stephen's Park, etc. The people at the dest were extremely friendly and informative. The room was very clean. The rroms are adequate, but need renovation. We had to change rooms at midnight because a window would not close and was blowing cold wind in. Drawer pulls were broken off. The owner should invest some money into what could be an outstanding investment. The WiFi is sketchy at best. Collapse

Hotel has excellent location and room was comfortable and reasonably priced (for Dublin). Bathroom needed refurbishment. Plugs let water leak and I never could work out the shower. Breakfast unexciting, repetitive and ghastly coffee but the real bugbear was wi if in one location only and then intermittent. Can't believe I am writing this in 2017 but it really bugged me I couldn't get my emails and surf in my own bedroom. Collapse
