10.0 Excellent
Pros:Clean room, very comfortable bed
Cons:Bigger windows in the room or ones that can open more
4.0 Mediocre
Cons:This hotel is over-priced for what is on offer. The rooms are tattty and old-fashioned. And very hot. The breakfast was suitable at E10. For my three days stay there was never a functioning toilet, which I complained about daily, and it was not fixed. I would not return and would not recommend this hotel.
5.7 Passable
Pros:Room quality and cleanliness were good. location is good.
Cons:Service was rude, staff uninterested in helping us, and made us lose $ and time figuring out how to use their "validated" parking in the city center structure. The manager on our last day was very helpful and gave us a partial refund for parking $, but was not able to give us back our lost time to see the countryside and beat crowds to Cliffs of Moher. The only elevator was broken for around 12 hours and we had to walk up 4 stories with no apology, just a "there are the stairs". Roommkeys deactivated on second day and after hiking back down 4 stories the gentleman at the desk responded with "well how many nights are you staying?". What is that supposed to imply? Again no apology. would not recommend this Hotel unless nothing else is available for distance to city center.
7.7 Good
Pros:Beautiful décor, excellent location, fantastic breakfast. Close to parking as well.
Cons:Walls are a bit thin, so light sleepers beware.
