    Majority of staff was friendly and the location was great-- you're within walking distance from anything you'll want or need.

    Everything about the room was tiny, including the shower that my husband could hardly fit in. I felt dirty in my room-- there was dirt in the carpet that you could feel walking across in your socks, dirt on the floorboards, dust on the counter tops, cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling, and mold in the shower caulking. The bed was hard as a rock and they only provided 2 paper-flat pillows-- and weren't obliging when we asked for only 2 more. For the amount of money I paid for this hotel room, I would at least like it to be clean and comfortable. The Library Bar was also disappointing, especially since this was one of the main reasons I wanted to stay in the hotel. The drinks were limited, the food even more so (and the bit I tried was not worth the price tag). Even though it has lounge chairs, it isn't cozy or comfortable because there are so many people-- its been over-marketed and now is no longer that intimate place to read or chat that it originally claimed to be.

    Friendly staff, comfortable, overpriced

    Staff was very very friendly, beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Bar had limited food selection but food was really good. Would stay again but would look around for other hotels priced in the same range first.

    Room was small, WiFi didn't work well in the restaurant or bar, old style design with creeks in floor, slightly overpriced for what you get but affordable for Dublin. Patrons can be loud at bar time but the one overnight staff member made an effort to minimize it.

    It's in a great location, in the heart of Dublin close to everything.

    The rooms are really very hot, too hot.
