Location: situated in the centre of Dublin close to St Stephens Green. Located on Harcourt St. off the south west corner of St. Stephen's Green in Dublin City Centre. It is on the LUAS (tram system) line which services from Grafton Street (one stop) to the north and to the Green Line Sandyford in the South. Grafton Street and its surrounds would arguably be Ireland's most exclusive shopping district. Temple Bar and all Dublin's major attractions are all within walking distance
Excellent location, 5 min walk to St. Stephen's Green Park and shopping centre and Grafton St.
The Luas is available almost outside the door.
The Luas starts at 6 am so ask for a room at the back if you are a light sleeper. Rooms are small but clean and helpful staff.

Only spent one quiet Sunday evening there, but found the hotel really nice. Excellent room, bed and food. All the staff very pleasant. Hotel very central to the city centre and for us, the NCH. Would stay there again with pleasure. Would certainly recommend it for comfort and value to our circle of family and friends.

The only good thing about this hotel was that they ...
The room itself was fine. It was clean and tidy. I did find there was a shortage of electrical sockets only 2 in the room so I could charge my phone and laptop at the same time but nothing else. Charging seemed to be exceptionally slow for my phone which charges within 90 minutes but in the hotel room took over 4 hours. The main issue I had with the hotel room were the noise levels both from outside (there's a nightclub close by) and more annoyingly from inside the hotel with other groups of guests partying all night and banging doors. Apparently my room was on the same floor as one of the suites that can accommodate up to 6 people and as such are more prone to being occupied by people that don't sleep that much.
In any case I told the lady on reception at checkout about the noise problem and she apologised and offered me a free breakfast. I didn't have time for breakfast so she offered me the value of the breakfast as a refund.
Overall it's not a bad hotel, it's well located but if a good night's sleep is important then you should check when booking if you can get a quiet room away from all the madness!
