Overall, I would recommend this hotel. We were really looking for a central place to stay since we weren't renting a car and this hotel definitely provided that. Rooms were kinda small but we didn't mind because we didn't spend too much time there except to sleep. Decor of the rooms was bare, but the bars/lounges were really cool. As long as you don't have too much luggage, it's a great stay!Pros: The hotel had a GREAT location..walking distance to lots of places we wanted to see as first time visitors to Dublin(Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton St etc). The hotel bars were really cool. Not cheap, but the hotel bar wasnt more than other locals.Cons: No elevator! Which normally wouldn't be a problem but as tourists with bags for staying 2 weeks that was a bit inconvenient. The inclusive breakfast left a little bit to be desired but it was good for a quick (not hot) bite to eat before starting the day.
