Superb location, staff couldn't be more helpful.
Peter, gb2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
High price low quality
Poor room condition, noisy, hot, not air conditioned. The noise from outside is horrendous as no double glazing, very little sleep due to this. Not a double bed, 2 single pushed together. Avoid if you want a good nights sleep! Breakfast price doesn't include a coffee which is crap as its 10 euros ( for breakfast extra on the already high priced room.
James, gb2 night business trip
Poor 2.0
Not business trip friendly
Awful. While centrally located the hotel is noisy, old and extremely overpriced. The staff are friendly and helpful but unless you you need to be in Templebar at the crack of dawn I would avoid it like a plague. I stayed for a business trip and it took over an 90 minutes for my taxi to arrive (booked at 8am and arrived at 930). Their double beds are two singles pushed together which on top of the sheer volume of noise from the road outside makes sleep next to impossible.

Good 6.0
Just okay 😐
The bed was very uncomfortable and that is saying something as I really can sleep anywhere. The hotel is not run like other Irish hotels. Everyone seems to be a transplant and the whole experience was just how much money can we get from being in this particular touristy area. Overall a quality was “phoned in”. If you have looking for the Irish hotel experience, don’t stay here. If you want to compromise on cleanliness and amenities, in order to be centrally located, than this place will do.
