6/10 Good

We didn't have a car, and the hotel is right on the bus route for easy access to downtown and the airport. It's also a short walk to Dublin Bay. The area is near the Embassies and is safe and clean. As for the room, the bedroom was clean and efficient, with nice windows that open 2 ways. However, the bathroom left a lot to be desired, as the cold water barely ran, and the shower had no curtain or water pressure.

6/10 Good

we liked the location. it was close to several restaurants. we did not like the following . 1The bathroom had no towel racks .... just a little clip . 2. the hot water in th shower was extremely hard to control . One degree of turn changed it from cold to scalding . 3. On Sunday night there were a lot of loud people in hallway at midnight . 4. The front door area looked shabby . 5 minutes of work with a paint brush would make a big difference 5. when I got up in the morning the front door lock was not locked . I locked it ,pulled it shut behind me ,went out to my car and then could not get back in. the green light flashed , there was a click but lock did not work.Luckily our room was on ground floor so I knocked on window.

The room was clean and quiet. The property needs some care. Bus just outside will take you into downtown quickly. Grocery and dining are a short walk or drive.
