    Concierge team helped us booking our tours and suggesting restaurants, they were really helpful and friendly.

    The location is very convenient and near to everything.

  • 4 star ratingGreat Location The hotel was clean. Rooms were large. Front desk was very helpful. No AC which was only a problem because there was lots of noise from restaurants/bars below so we had to keep the windows closed. Location couldn't be beat. More


    3 star ratingOne night stay The hotel is well-located and there are many diverse restaurants close by. Check in and out was easy with pleasant, efficient personnel. However, the hotel was somewhat jaded and the rooms were uninviting


    5 star ratingA1 location Very good location and attentive staff, if you’re looking for a quality hotel in a prime location in Temple Bar you won’t go wrong here! Exceptional hotel and even better service. Will definitely return
