The bars across the street are very loud throughout the night and the room windows don’t dampen the sound.

Beautiful hotel and nice location. The room is nice and very comfortable. Be aware there is NO handicap access - there is NO elevator or "lift" in the building. The hotel has a discount agreement with a parking garage that is three blocks away, and no temporary parking for check-in or drop-off. So, if you are coming to Dublin and have hired transportation from the airport, it's really great. If you have a car / rental vehicle, convenience goes down to zero. The closest competitor in the area is Travelodge, and it is attached to the parking garage.

Great potential but needs attention.

Pros: Location is awesome.
Cons: The rooms desperately need renovating.
Location: bus/train around corner. Convenience store Handy. Hop on bus/Eyre Sq. City Centre right there. Great food in area. Very short walks to everything.
The hotel has a great location. There is a convenience store across the street. Tour company next door. Eyre Park right there and the City Centre at your doorstep. The Hotel itself is run down. The carpet in our room was thread bare. Peeling paint in the bathroom. They are currently renovating the fourth floor to add rooms so it is very noisy and the construction crew use the only elevator so you can have long waits for it. If you're not into large breakfasts there is an attached coffee shop with excellent coffee drinks and you can get a pastry or toast for a reasonable price. The bar area is old and amazingly beautiful with its rich wood and iron decor. If you're looking for a musical experience in the pub you might want to go elsewhere. The musician when we where there was more interested in go outside to smoke and drink, than performing. If you decide to stay there ask for a fourth floor room. They will be fresh and new. It's unfortunate that they don't take care of the rooms they have before adding more rooms.
