Friendly and nice

The hotel staff was very friendly and very helpful. Every person smiled and was genuinely friendly and helpful every time I walked up to the front desk. I had a single room which was very small but immaculately clean and very efficiently laid out. As the description says it is just off O'Connell street - a main thoroughfare - and a few blocks from the O'Connell St bridge. From there, walking to anywhere in the city was easy.

A clean place to stay

The location is perfect, spotless rooms, very clean and nice. Rooms at bit on the small side, but who cares, they're just to sleep in anyway. Breakfast is to expencive, we recommend you to buy breakfast out on a restaurant instead. Besides that, the best stay on the islands ever..
