Great facilities, good location for price
Location is good for transport, shops, restaurants, bars etc, only 20 mins walk to Temple Bar, good for nightlife, not far from Three Arena.
The lobby and facilities are great, big gym and a sauna. Bit disappointed by lack of warm Irish welcome (never been to Ireland before so that's what I hoped for), staff ok but certainly not overly friendly, felt more like a functional business hotel than leisure stay.
Nice restaurant, cafe and breakfast room although, be prepared, full Irish breakfast buffet is 16.50 euro, lovely food would be better with vegetarian options to replace meat.
Our room was in an old part of the hotel, it was clean and pleasant, wallpaper peeling a little in the corner, very warm though even with both windows fully open. The view would be great if you are a train spotter, want a train as an alarm clock and don't mind noise and room shake, the train line was literally 20ft from the window and it faced the back of buildings so not pleasant but as we were out most of the time it was ok.
Good facility of being able to leave cases there in a locked room after check-out until ready to leave meant we could enjoy last few hours before leaving for the airport.
