Loud but fun location. Hotel staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Kept our bags for us for most of the day after we checked out so we could go on a tour. It was a pleasant stay.

Centrally located, clean, modern hotel in the heart of the City Center. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early around 11:30, but they put it to the top of the list so we were in it by 1:30. There's a small selection of drinks/snacks for purchase in the lobby, but there's a market across the street for larger snack items. Like other reviewers have said, this is a noisy location due to all the pubs on the street, until midnight Sunday-Thursday and 2:30AM Friday and Saturday nights, so if that's a deal breaker for you don't stay here, we used a white noise machine and had no issues sleeping.

Very nice hotel. Great location, but can be a little loud in the evening. Did provide earplugs to block out noise. Near everything. Would definitely stay here again.

They made it right - after I complained

Reserved a room with a king size bed for two nights. First room we got was on the first floor next to the air conditioning units - yet our room did not have air conditioning so we had the noise but no cool. It also did not have a king size bed. The next morning I asked to switch rooms but was told that all rooms have a European King, not the King I was used to in the US. I found this surprising as I had just spent 6 nights in three other hotels around Ireland and they all had US style king size beds. Anyway, we got moved later that day to a room with air conditioning - and surprise surprise, a US style king size bed. This was the room we should have been given to begin with. Staff were pleasant and the rooms were nicely appointed, though small for the price. This was a very noisy hotel. Ear plugs were in our rooms on both the first and fourth floors.

sweet location, clean and helpful. Super noisy.

Right where you want to be. Great staff. Beautiful hotel. In a noisy busy area, and a supermarket across from our room that was really convenient but restocked at like 4 am--- but hotel left us earbuds to help. I would say great for all travelers except families with kids bc of the noise.
