  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Staff was very accommodating. Food very good at Cleaver East. Would go back.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The room was wonderful and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful with paying for a taxi that didn't take credit cards. The hotel is right on pub row so if you are a pub crawler, it is really convenient when it is time to crawl back to your hotel. With that being said, it is on pub row, so it can get loud. The hotel is also currently being remodeled. That didn't effect my stay but if you are sensitive to paint fumes, it maybe an issue.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. My only dislike was the shower. I was with my 74 year old mother and the tub/shower was extremely high and very narrow. Once you managed to climb in, you were showering with the shower curtain in your face

Good Hotel But...

This was a good hotel in a great location, but our visit was marred by the refurbishment works currently being undertaken. The staff were very helpful in the circumstances. Our room was excellent, having only just been refurbished to a high standard. There is every indication that once the works are finished later in the year that the hotel will be well worth staying at.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

It would have been nice to know that the hotel is being renovated with massive construction and no reception lobby. The staff were polite not friendly, the amenities hood, including room service. Breakfast is not included. In a nice area near temple bar, trininity college, grafton street,etc.
