6.2 Okay
Pros:The staff was friendly and helpful
Cons:Walking into the room there was a big burn imprint of an iron right in front of us. While the bathroom looked clean, once in the shower the grout really needed a big wash. The towel rack was sooo hot It couldn’t be regulated. Wouldn’t want little kids in there The Green Award is lovely but if you don’t leave a card in the slot your electronics dont charge The restaurant on the weekend is not available as it’s booked for conferences. There is a bar upstairs but the menu is not the same and because the stadium is close by, both weekends we were there, the hotel was set up for big crowds. We had asked for a room at the back so it was pretty quiet there. Sounds kind of whiney as I reread the above but we felt for 10 days we would rather have been downtown so we could walk out and discover more little local places for eating out!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Loved the location, the service and staff. The breakfast was wonderful
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Exceedingly nice staff, utterly helpful and unfailingly cheerful. Accommodations were comfortable and clean and aimed to please. I highly recommend adding the breakfast voucher. The food and service were terrific. I can’t commend the staff enough, they made my stay pleasant and friendly. Close to a DART station stop and a lovely village center, both within easy walking distance. And it was very affordable for all that.
8.0 Very Good
Pros:Everything was OK but only OK. Some staff really smiley & helpful. For price & situation I would stay again.
Cons:The rabbit warren of corridors. Uncomfortable & squeaky bed. Some staff not really engaging with their customers.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Location and food were great! Hotel needs updating...beds are uncomfortable and very squeaky, rooms are outdated.
9.6 Wonderful
Pros:The staff were really amazing - very friendly and helpful. I'm notoriously bad with directions, but they patiently helped me map out routes to the city, but stops, etc. The room was perfect for my needs - just enough room and very clean. Beautiful sunlight filled the room (when it wasn't overcast outside). The room service portions were very generous and the food was excellent. The portions were a bit too large for me, but could have easily been shared between two people. Very convenient location. Quiet residential/business location.
Cons:Walls seemed paper-thin, but I think that's because of the age of the building. I don't think there's really anything that could be done for that - it wasn't really a bother. Maybe I just didn't walk around enough, but it didn't seem like there was very much to do (for a business tourist, anyway) in the immediate area. The Internet cut out frequently in my room. These are just very minor complaints, though. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend the hotel to anyone who is seeking a comfortable, clean, convenient location for Dublin travel.
