9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Location, location, location. Centrally located to most major attractions in central Dublin. Excellent value for money.
Cons:No easily accessible elevator as this hotel was not built as one. The porters are very helpful with bags, though. Ask for a room on a high floor if noise from the lively bar below is an issue.
8.0 Very good
Cons:Loud music from the dance club downstairs until 330am on a wednesday night/thrusday early morning
