I needed a reasonably priced city centre hotel, and this fit the bill. The staff was helpful, the room was clean, if small. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. Breakfast was also very good. One downside was the poor shower facility -- even turned all the way on to the hottest setting, the water was just warm, and the worst water pressure experienced in Ireland. The location of the hotel was perfect for my needs. I would try this hotel again, but would ask a question about water pressure/better shower before checking in.

Upon arriving the staff at reception were very helpful but the room was very disatifactory, the room was really small and was beside the cleaners cupboard when booking the rooms where alot bigger and spacious but when arriving we recieved none of this, we were placed on the first floor facing the busy street even by having the window closed could hear the bin men and anyone around talking from 7am that morning when it finally quitened down the cleaners where in the cupboards so much that we got up because the noise was unbareable, thinking there was someone in our room , we then checked out really early because of the lack of sleep!! overall very disappointed.

We use Dublin City Inn regularly when meeting with overseas guests, who also use this hotel. Staff are always helpful and allocate the room number we request; rooms are clean and quite spacious. The location is perfect as we usually arrive in Dublin at Connolly Station, so only a 8 minute walk. We will continue to use this hotel.
The rooms were quite small and it's a very basic hotel. Breakfast wasn't great. They have a tiny reception area. It's false advertising to say they have a carpark as it's 7 spaces so it's probably always filled by staff. Research 24 carparks before you go because your in the middle of Dublin City trying to find car space otherwise. They do Subsidise the local Qpark though. Rooms were clean and bathroom was spacious. It's right in the centre near the spire. Handy location. Overall value for money. Staff were friendly. It can be quite noisey at weekends as walls are like paper. Also TV was in a weird place in a cupboard and you can't pull it out.

Upon arrival at the check-in desk at Dublin City Inn we were informed that the hotel was "overbooked" and were relocated to the Ripley Court Hotel 5 minutes away. The receptionist was very kind and apologetic and we were offered free breakfast in the new hotel for our trouble. Though Dublin City Inn should definitely try their best to avoid overbooking in the future, the swift organisational skills of their staff made our transition to the Ripley Court almost seamless and we had a wonderful stay in Dublin!

For the price we paid this hotel was fine, quite difficult to sleep at night though as widows face out onto Talbot Street. As for the location, couldn't have been better, right in the city centre and 2 minutes walk to O'Connell street. Having booked a double room I was quite disappointed to see that they had given us a twin room which was very small also.
Overall though room was very clean and its a great hotel for people visiting Dublin to go out because of the location. Relaxing quiet night this place would be a no-no.

The room was quite large and well equipped. The location is perfect - downtown, near everything, walking distance to/from Connoly Station and Busaras and Luas, but not noisy at all. Staff was competent. Only one slight complaint, the room was warm, and we could not open the windows for fresh air because our windows opened out to the lounge/guest/patio where people were smoking. Would ask for a different room if we got 106 again -- but will definitely stay here again.
