Weekend away with a friend

We had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Express for a long weekend. Rooms very clean and modern. It was a perfect location, close to the shops and bars, and a short walk to Temple Bar. Breakfast was great, couldn't believe it was included free of charge. Would love to stay here again next time in Dublin.

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!

Grosses, geräumiges Zimmer. Sehr sauber und ordentlich. Abends jeweils etwas laut, man konnte den Lärm aus den Pubs ums Hotel gut hören. Sonst aber alles sehr positiv.

Hotelli on loistavalla paikalla ja erittäin siisti. Ainoa asia joka häiritsi, oli se, ettei huoneissa ollut mitään laatikostoa tms, jonne laittaa vaatteet matkalaukusta. Myöskään kylpyhuoneessa ei ollut mitään mihin ripustaa märkä pyyhe. Tilaa näille olisi kyllä ollut. Kokolattiamatto saattaa myös allergisia haitata vaikka se siisti olikin. Aamupala oli myös suht tylsä, joka aamu samaa, eikä sisältänyt mitään leivän päälle laitettavaa eikä vihanneksia. Olisin mieluusti vaihtanut pekonit ja kokonaiset makkarat pariin siivuun kurkkua ja juustoa.

Siisti hotelli ja loistava sijainti

Lentokenttä bussi pysähtyy lähelle hotellia. Lyhyt kävelymatka keskustan nähtävyyksiin ja ostoskaduille.

Hyvä sijainti.

Cons: Aamiainen saisi olla vähän parempi.
Hotelli uusi ja puhas. Sijainti erinomainen, lähelle joka paikkaan. Dublin mukava kaupunki, helppo löytää ja yhteydet hyviä.
