Lovely hotel

Brand new hotel opened 3 months ago. Central location with great transport links. Staff very polite and courteous. Breakfast included with take out options included. Would definitely recommend good value for money.

Great location. Hotel all new and clean.

Great hotel. The only thing I can fault is their chips smell like p*ss. Couldn't eat them. Would recommend not eating chips there. Other than that all spot on.

Great hotel in Dublin!

Location is perfect and all the buses stop outside the hotel (including the airport bus). Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and there was the option to take breakfast and hot drinks away with you. This was really useful as we had a tour at 6:30am. Overall it was a brilliant stay! Thanks!

Siisti uusi hotelli

Huoneet eivät ole kovin isoja mutta kaikki on uutta ja hienoa. Ihan hyvä aamupala paikalliseen tyyliin eli ei mitään leikkeleitä mutta pekonia, munakokkelia, makkaras, leipää, jugurttia, muroja ja hedelmiä

Erinomainen sijainti. Hyvät yhteydet

Pros: Moderni. Jos pitää modernista / uudesta. WiFI tosi ok, samoin USB.
Cons: Monipuolisempi aamiainen.
Erinomainen sijainti. Kaikki tarvittavat palvelut kuten ostoskeskukset, pubit ym. lähellä. Samoin bussipysäkki oven edessä, joten lentokenttä helposti tavoitettavissa sekä muut yhteydet.

Gut gelegenes, modernes Hotel

Das Hotel ist recht neu und modern, Lage zum Temple Bar Distrikt etwa 800 m, also gut zu Fuß erreichbar. Die Zimmer sind sauber und zweckmäßig im Stil der Holiday Inn Express-Hotels eingerichtet (z.B. kein Schrank im Zimmer). Das Frühstück ist nicht pompös, aber völlig ausreichend. Kann man auch "To-Go" mitnehmen wenn man es eilig hat. Gute Anbindung an Flughafen, Haltestellen für Transferbusse direkt vor der Haustür. Würde wieder dort übernachten!

Hieno uusi hotelli

Tyylikäs huone, puhdas, palveleva henkilökunta ja hyvä aamiainen. Myös nopea wifi. Usb-pistokkeet seinissä plussaa.
