I got engaged!

Posted 07-Feb-2016
Hotel is lovely and I will never forgot the night I spent there as my girlfriend proposed to me in room 263! Amazing. The hotel staff we're very accommodating, especially when we asked if the ring could be kept in the safe after we checked out. The only thing we was not too keen on was the food in the restaurant. Apart from that it was great.

Good location but look elsewhere

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Staff were friendly enough, however we were given a room next to the elevator, cleaning cupboard and security entrance. This resulted in significant noise throughout the night and the room had no sound proofing at all. Additionally there was construction immediately outside our room. This is understandable but it would have been nice if the staff had warned us. The room was dated but clean.

Family City Break

Posted 18-Jan-2016
Pros: Price, room size, location, restaurant downstairs
Location: City centre, close to everything that's happening!
Hotel is located close to bus & train station within easy walk of main attractions. We had asked for a family room & were not disappointed with it's size & comfort - plenty of room for us all with tables, sofas etc. Kept very clean & maid serviced Only grumble was pillows were very hard but that is a preference. Also as in any hotel in Dublin you always get inconsiderate people coming in late banging doors & shouting! Not the hotels fault! We would stay here again

You must stay here!!

Posted 17-Jan-2016
We had a phenomenal experience from the second we walked in the door. The rooms are so clean and updated, the bed was SO comfortable and the staff are ALL fantastic. We will 100% stay there again when we return to Dublin. PS the restaurant is fantastic too! Special thanks to David and Clare. You made us feel so welcome!

Great Location & Friendly Staff

Posted 16-Jan-2016
Fantastic location & friendly staff who were happy to help. Very nice decor. Our room did get very very cold over our stay- some of us left with colds. Even with the heating up full. The fire alarm going on & off on sat night was a pain, especially when we were told to stay in our room & then told to leave immediately - we ended up not leaving the hotel that night until 11pm & we're supposed to be celebrating a friends birthday. I had also tried to arrange a bottle of prosecco to be in our room as a surprise but the communication with the hotel was very slow & by the time they replied we were already checked in.

Charged twice for room.

Posted 07-Jan-2016
At arrival they didn't even ask for our reservation number, so they ended up charging us for the room again. They did the refund when i told them it was paid for but, we haven't seen our refund on our credit card yet.

Lovely hotel close to city centre

Posted 03-Jan-2016
Hotel was in a good location, staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and spacious however very hot on the first night as our a/c did not work. After mentioning to reception it was fixed the next day. On site restaurant had good food although more choice would have been better. Overall if we revisit Dublin we would stay here again.

Great Location

Posted 26-Nov-2015
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: The bathroom floor tiles were a bit loose, could use some grout. An alarm clock would be nice also.
Location: Close connections to transportation options (bus and rail). Croke Park is a short walk, and O'Connell Street is easily accessible, as is the Liffey.
Stayed at the North Star on my only trips to Dublin. Great location, friendly staff, and comfortable rooms. Nice restaurant and bar just off the lobby named McGettigans. Rooms are very well appointed, beds are comfortable. Convenient location, just a short walk on Talbot street to the city center (O'Connell Street). If I am fortunate enough to come back to Dublin, North Star will be my first choice for accommodations.

Great, modern hotel in centre of Dublin

Posted 16-Nov-2015
A 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi ride from Temple Bar. Excellent, clean and modern hotel with large rooms. Very pleasant staff, and requests made for room preferences were met entirely. Definitely recommended.

Not a 4 star hotel

Posted 13-Nov-2015
Pros: The staff kindness
Cons: Give an upgrade to the hotel in general
Location: 20 minutes walking to the tourist area
The Staff is so friendly and give great service To expensive for the hotel level. Not a 4 star hotel. The room was old, with no Air Conditioning/Heater, just and old radiator that is turned on by the hotel when they consider is necessary and was not turned on everyday. The bathroom was OK in good conditions, the bed was clean and comfortable except for the pillows In general the hotel is old and not to clean look
