    Central location, friendly staff & clean rooms with modern decoration & facilities.

    The bedroom wall to the corridor had poor sound proofing.

    Exceptional

    The hotel staff were most friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, efficient and dedicated to providing a wonderful stay for their guests. My room was clean and comfortable and my booking was just as I had requested. The free wifi is an added bonus. Great Location, just steps away from St. Patrick's Street. All in all a wonderful experience.

    Superb

    This hotel is within a few minutes walk of the train station and onwards to the city centre. Friendly efficient staff and nice decoration. We have stayed there before and will do so again. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a reasonably priced, good hotel.

    On previous stays at this hotel our rooms were very nice and of good size but this time room was very small as was the bathroom (which didn't even have a shelf for toiletries - had to lower the lid of the toilet to use as a shelf!) No complaints other than that.

    Very good

    it was very central, staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms i have been in have been airy,i also so found the gym easy to use.

    haven to pay a five euros to use the gym when i was a resident was unusual, also compared to the recent deals in hotels in dublin the price could have been better mid week ,this is something to look at as alot of people are headen to dub because of the cheaper deals, cork hotels more exspencive.

    Fabulous

    The room was very comfortable and very clean. The food (I only had breakfast) was excellent with a good selection available. The hotel is ideal for city centre.

    The room was noisey as it faced onto a busy strret (MacCurtain Street) and the double glazing wasn't effective. Also, you have to pay additional fees for car parking and use of the gym and pool

    Good

    very nice reception and bar area, we were going to a show at the Everyman Palace only a couple of doors away so location was perfect.

    Breakfast is too expensive, so didn't bother. Room very small and stuffy.
