Well located

Posted 24-Jun-2015
Nice hotel. Short walk to O'Connell St. Near train tracks & not a pretty area but otherwise a very nice hotel. Had an issue with their airport shuttle. They never showed up & we had to get a cab. Hotel manager reimbursed us & arranged for a cab on their tab for return to airport. Very well handled. Diffused our anger completely. Professionally run

Location was good but room was outdated

Posted 30-May-2015
We stayed in a family suite. The room was outdated but served its purpose. The only time we spent there was to sleep. The bathroom celling was very moldy.

Great hotel.

Posted 30-May-2015
Pros: The staff are lovely, the rooms very clean and comfortable. The bar area is lovely and the bar staff very friendly.
Cons: No it is great
Location: Close to shops and the bars in Dublin. Its close to buses and two mins from the train station that takes you to the beach.
This hotel was great. The staff very friendly and helpful. We are already wanting to go back. Close to the trains and bus stops. We took the train that is just across the road from the hotel to Howth, It took just 30 mins to Howth and you are on the beach and by the sea, Great ! If you are reading this review you must stay at this Hotel its lovely. A wonderful place to stay,in a lovely city. We are looking forward to going back next year and staying longer than a weekend. The hotel in one word " FANTASTIC"

Nice Hotel - close to city centre

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: Food and cleanliness of the rooms.
Cons: Just a bit more of a personal friendlier approach from the staff.
Location: Very close to everything. 10 minutes walk from the River and Temple Bar. We even walked to the Guinness Storehouse which was about 30 minutes away.
The North Star is a nice hotel close to the city centre. It is clean, rooms are nice and the food was really good. The staff were pleasant but not overly friendly. We didn't know how to make the lights work and this would have taken a minute for someone to tell us when we checked in! (you need to use one of your door cards). Decor was good. Food was really good, tasty and great portions especially the breakfast! Location was close to everything but the area directly next to the hotel is a bit run down but there isn't much they could do about that! Overall the experience was good and I would recommend the hotel.

Cons: Please put the hotel number street address on the information. We only had a street and not knowing anything about the city it was hard to find.
Great location. Nice room. Easy access to many things.

Lovely hotel in a fab location

Posted 27-Apr-2015
Pros: Comfy Bed Great location Near transport routes Airport shuttle bus Luggage facility
Cons: We had a room overlooking the train station which was quite noisy at times but didn't spoil our stay.
Location: Guinness Storehouse Dublin Zoo Temple Bar The Italian Corner restaurant Stephen's Green Park Gino's Ice Cream
A lovely, modern and clean hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is in an ideal location, the airport bus stopped just round the corner and the tram station was just over the road. It was a 10-15 minute walk to O'Connell street and the River Liffey.

Nice but pricey

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Hotel location was ideal. Rooms and food did not disappoint. Would have enjoyed a late residents bar but hotel quiet after hours which will suit many. Only negative would be the cost. €80 each without breakfast for 5x twin rooms. No discount for multiple rooms even.

It is OK, but nothing to rave about.

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: Easy access
Cons: Noise proofing, some corridors smelt of food!
Convenient for the railway station, and on a main road, so some rooms could be noisy. Easy walking to city centre, but not in the greatest bit of Dublin. For what it was it felt a bit expensive, but perhaps that is Dublin!
