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!

Uusi hyvätasonen hotelli pääkadulla.

Yöpymiseen hintansa arvoinen. Aamiaistila liian pienet yöpyjien lukumäärään nähden, joutuu odottamaan paikka. Aamiaiselta puuttui leivänpäälle pantavat (juusto, kinkku, salatti, kurkku ym.) muuten ihan kohtalainen.

Kleine Zimmer, sauber / gepflegt, Frühstück .....

Pros: Sauberkeit im Zimmer und die Dusche
Cons: mehr Platz beim Frühstück ? Platzverhältnisse sind sehr beengt, eine weitere Kaffeemaschine ! schneller Abräumen
Location: Perfekte Lage ... alles zu Fuss gut erreichbar ...
Dublin ist immer eine Reise wert... nette Leute, tolle Bar' s an jeder Ecke, gute und günstige Shopping Möglichkeiten, usw. Das Hotel ist sehr gut gelegen, die Zimmer sind sehr klein aber sauber und gepflegt, hatten eine schöne grosse Dusche, WC mit spezieller Form etwas gewöhnungsdürftig, ... Das Frühstück ist typisch irisch, leider immer ein Kampf ob man einen Platz ergattern kann, die Platzverhältnisse sind auch da sehr beengt und es kann dabei kaum Ferienstimmung aufkommen... Für einen Kaffee muss man sich in eine Reihe stellen, die Tische werden lange nicht abgeräumt usw Zuwenig Personal ! Trotzdem hatten wir eine sehr schöne Zeit in Dublin erlebt ...

Hôtel froid et impersonnel

Nous avons été mis dans une chambre handicapée sans aucune raison avec des lumières allumées 24h sur 24. La salle de bains était également équipée donc moins glamour ce n'est pas possible. Par contre la chambre était très propre. Les femmes de ménage sympathiques mais pas le jeune homme de la réception. Buffet petit déjeuner correcte. Hotel bien situé.

Gutes Hotel für einen Städtetrip

Perfekt gelegen, Bushaltestelle gleich vor dem Hotel. Sehr sauberes, geräumiges Zimmer. Zum Hinterhof, leider ein wenig laut von einer Bar, v.a. in den Nächten Freitag/Samstag. Frühstück ok, nicht eine sehr grosse Auswahl.
