    This hotel is located just off of O'Connell Street where there are many nice shops and dining. The city tour buses start and leave off right in front of the hotel. It is within walking distance to many tourist site and Trinity College. The hotel staff made every effort to make our stay comfortable. The rooms are clean but on the small side. It is what you would expect in any large Metropolitan city. You will not be in the room with so much to do in the city.The hotel maid service was great they left extra towels at our doors when we did not want service, it was a nice touch and much appreciated.

    Location fantastic-just off O'Connell St. The hotel allowed us to chek in early. The room was a good size with extremely comfortable bed. Free wi-fi is a huge bonus.

    No complaints.

    I liked the friendliness of the staff, value for money on room price the location of the hotel, the rooms were very comfortable and quiet so no problem sleeping, also the rooms were spotlessly clean and it was extra nice to see the bathroom so clean as with a lot of hotels the bathroom tends to be a bit grubby which is a big let down so i can honestly say i would recomend your hotel to anyone, have just booked another stay for July so really looking forward to that.. I had checked the hotel reviews on Booked.net initially before booking and it had such a high % rate i knew i couldnt go wrong

    Perfect

    The convenient location to Dublin city centre and the staff were really friendly. It was very comfortable and clean and the food was great.

    The only thing that didn't happen was we asked for a taxi to be booked to go to the O2 and it didn't happen and this was rather time sensitive. However mistakes happen. Just a little surprising that there were 2 restaurants and both were Asian food (I think it was the same kitchen).

    Nice

    Good bar and chinese buffet restaurant

    Hotel and room were freezing cold, staff unhelpful when told about this problem. Non smoking room but smelt strongly of cigarette smoke due to other residents smoking in their room

    Very good

    Location, in the center of Dublin. Breakfast was correct, not exceptional but correct.

    The air conditioning system did not worked correctly in my room (juniro suite). No free internet, today is not understandable. They denied to charge my Best Western points in the fidelity program because I did the reservation through Booked.net web site...incredible. I was not satisfied with the behaviour of the reception staff.

    Very good

    Clean and well-kept rooms. Good central location at reasonable price.

    My room was very cold and only warmed up if you left the card in the light control, so you couldn't leave it to get warm whilst you were out. I was kept awake all night by front door of hotel banging underneath my room. Bar staff said they could not charge a drink to my room, so I paid in the cash, only to discover they had tried to charge the room as well.
