on saturday night we could not get a drink from the bar when we asked for one. early night in dublin' bar shuts at 12.30. first for me in a hotel.
Backpacker paradise. Worth the money, free dependable WiFi, okay beds, clean and comfortable. A little noisy but nothing to stop sleep.
Location is central intially one of the beds was broken so we had to switch rooms
The twin room we were given was spacious and faced a calm street so that we were not bothered by the traffic going through Talbot St or by the DART trains going into Connolly Station. The bathroom was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were free newspapers every morning and coffee-making facilities in the room. The location is very convenient, close to Busarás and Connolly Station, and a good walker can get to Temple Bar and Grafton St in 10 minutes. The Irish breakfast they offer is rather substantial and comprehensive, but we thought it was a pity that apart from cereals nothing was offered that even hinted in the direction of a continental breakfast, no yoghurt, no fresh fruit, honey, sliced cheese or ham. But we have to admit that the Irish breakfast got us through the whole day.
Good hotel in good location 5 mins from centre, easy to find. Nice internal. good value breakfast in the price.
Old style designing, large and spacious, clean if a bit tired, beds were very comfortable staff was helpful
Nothing apart from the friendly staff and the memory foam matress which gave me a rash and skin allergy! From the moment we went into the hotel the smell of damp musky air took the breath from us. Upon first entering the hotel it seemed pretty ok for the price that we were paying but as we entered our room how wrong were we. Middle of November with freezing tempetures outside and the window in the room open, took about an hour to heat with 'hot' air conditioning which i think was bringing in the air from the smoke room come beer garden so therfore we were choked with the fumes. The dust and dirt that was in the bedroom floor carpet was unreal considering there was 1 asthma suferer and due to this we couldnt really stay in the room too long. The bathroom was the same. And to end the so called bar downstairs--at your own risk enter!
I liked the convenience of the location and the receptionist when checking in and out was very polite and courtious and the place was spotless. I found the night porter to be very rude and unhelpful. We arrived back to the hotel just after 2am and when we enquired about the residents bar we were told in no uncertain terms that it was closed and that it wasn't his problem. I wasn't the only guest to think this. I cant understand how the residents bar closes before all the nightclubs in the surrounding area.
We got a free room upgrade, the staff were friendly and we loved the big comfy bed. Was very handy to get to and on site parking was great! The floors were very creaky and the walls extremely thin as we could hear people in the surrounding rooms!
The hotel was well sited and just what we wanted The room we were given was next to the lift and the railway ran right passed the window.Although they didn't cause too much trouble I would think twice about booking your hotel another time
The common areas very clean, cozy and updated. The staff very accommodating with extremely early check in. Great areas to relax. The room we stayed in was very small and had not been upgraded. Not a room they would picture on website.
The rooms were lovely and very comfortable
friendly staff, great location
Our rooms had to be changed because of water damage at weekend but we were more than satisfied with the change and the way the hotel staff dealt with the matter. Hotel meal was nice and the entertainment good.
Convenient to city centre, fabulous clean modern rooms, helpful staff Noisy, by railway line
Excellent food at both breakfast and dinner and comfotable room I know it's a public bar but the general behaviour, especially the bad language being used by some of the customers, was not what you would expect in a hotel bar. Perhaps a few words in a few ears might help make visiting the bar a more pleasant experience for hotel guests. By the way, the bar staff were very friendly and attentive.
right on bus line to/from airport, staff was friendly and helpful, breakfast was great selection and service, location was also good for walking to attractions and restaurants, bar was a fun walk back into time with a intimate beer garden. bathroom had black bold, shower head or water pressure needed some work.
The hotels location was excellent. Connelly station right across the street. Temple bar approximately 20-25 minute walk or take the Lucas.
comfort and hospitality and location
Staff were very helpfull.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was huge, bed comfortable, and the shower never ran out of hot water and had "full" power Parking garage is a little far and hard to get to if you have a car. There is no pull up driveway to load your bags and this made it a little bit difficult not knowing this prior to arrival
Food at EAST restaurant . Carpet needs to be vacuumed and or replaced in rooms. Well trodden. Some staff at front desk helpful and some not helpful at all and made you feel like you were a bother. Would recommend this hotel. Breakfast in morning overpriced and overrated. Go in the square adjent to get good food and coffee.
It was comfortable , clean and rooms were soundproof. Breakfast was too expensive.
Friendliness and ready to help staff attitude
very nice and clean hotel. very close to the venue we needed to go to. nice friendly staff. I would stay there again. N/A
The service at the front desk, restaurant, bar was over the top. It makes a stay that much better when you feel appreciated. There was nothing not to like!
The service was fantastic
Was upgraded to an apartment overlooking river which was very comfy and had everything we needed. all shops were close by and staff were helpful and polite. also ate in the restaurant which was enjoyable. would definitely recommend the clarion to anyone with a family. The Foyer was lacking a centre area but had lots of chairs etc...
Got upgrade to an Executive Room as car park was full on checking in. Receptionist extremely helpful. Car park was full when we went to check in however was able to use car park at National College of Design just around the corner. Disappointed to find Kudo's Asian food not served on a Sat/Sun only during the week.
Friendly staff, good facilities and location
When I checked in everything went fast and I could easily access the Internet in my room and I didn't face any issue to call the reception to fix it. Once when I left my room early in the morning and returned around noon my room wasn't tidy, so after that I always put the "Tidy My Room" sign when I left my room. This is not that much bad but I expected it.
Clean spacious rooms, good breakfast selection, good location (convenient for the Grand Canal Theatre), good for shopping with the Luas very close by.
The only thing I didn't like was the fact I had to pay to park my car. I have stayed in many hotels both with and without carparks and I have never had to pay before.
The pleasant staff, convenient location & comfortable bed. Also that the room was recently renovated That the breakfast wasn't included in the price.
The bar staff were very friendly The meal in restaurant had to be sent back as was not edible, the front desk staff could just about understand English
The location of this hotel was fantastic. It's a little walk to the temple bar area however very doable.
Great location next to bustip for airport Amount & location of electrical outlets
It is very conveniently located, very close to the city centre and major transport links. It is in a very nice location on the banks of the liffey with fantastic views.
Modern, convenient, clean, safe. Will definitely stay here again. Walls are thin. Heard many conversations from next room. Also Oly's Restaurant is mediocre. Acceptable if you're too knackered to go out.
Friendly staff, no street noise in room and comfortable beds. Sound transfer through connecting door from adjoining room at normal conversation levels. Zero privacy.
Convenient location and price Extra cost for parking at IFSC
Great back-up to the Spencer next door if you're strapped for time/rooms aren't available there. Courteous staff that will do anything to accommodate your needs. For the price, you can do better in Dublin. Had to ask for toothbrush, tooth paste, bottled water. I feel like those are pretty standard, though maybe that's not typical in Dublin.
Very helpful staff, being close to the City Centre and close to the bus and tram links Restaurant menu
The friendly atmosphere and the very good location Dinner was closing at 10pm,but they permitted us to enter at 9.40 and while we were eating they where preparing the room for the nexr day's breakfast, creating a climate of anxiety. It would be more correct not to let us in,
Friendliness of staff, fully equipped room, nice and warm and comfortable
Ease of getting into town. Cleanliness of room. Good shower. Unpleasant smell in lobby (stale mop water?). Room right opposite noisy bus station and banging nightclub. Could do with better double glazing.
i knew it from before, and liked it. no
Excellent shower in our room, staff very helpful, good location Breakfast ought to be included in the tariff
convenient location; great breakfast rooms too hot; curtaining on windows poor, didn't exclude light; lot of noise from outside (even with windows closed) - didn't sleep well as a result
we had a meal in the resturant and it was fab.well priced,polite staff.
The rooms are too noisy. It was impossible to sleep.
Everything, the staff were extremely helpful, nice room, good facilities and easy to get around Dublin on foot.
Central location, easy walking distance to many major attractions I get that it's a big city and cities are loud, but this hotel is located next a tram stop and bus station which has an announcement playing every three seconds over loud speakers until about midnight. Building was not well maintained, floors creaked so I knew when all of my neighbors, up and down, were walking. Mattresses were hard and uncomfortbale. Staff was sympathetic but didn't do much as far as alleviating issues
the room was very nice and confortable and the bathroom was wonderful the kitchen isn't very clean and the pottery isn't enough for everybody...
location not having phones in the rooms
Nice room (private with bunk bed). Good price. Friendly staff at desk. Towels and sheets were not changed during stay, though they have been in the room. Train next to room, what can be a bit noisy.
room wad clean and comfortable, and quite central. we had a safe in the room which was brilliant Friday night was very noisy with people coming back late, and when we went down for breakfast, there wasn't any left for us.
Good location The staff were rude and had obviously not heard of the concept 'Customer Service'. All guests were treated like young backpackers and we even had to validate the key card daily!
Such a great atmosphere, net so many amazing people! The staff are great and helpful as well Not as clean as I had hoped but it still wasn't too bad
The hostel is very well located, just around the corner from "Busaras", with very helpful and friendly staff. Great services & facilities. Nothing
It was an even better location than I had expected. It was very convenient to all transportation options including being right next door to the bus terminal which was great for tours of areas outside Dublin proper. Breakfast was in a very cramped location without enough seats for most people to sit. Toast, with jam and butter, and apples were supplemented by tea. Coffee was only instant.
booked for a 6 beds room, been placed in a 10 beds one..No reading light. Only 2 power plugs next to one of the 10 beds..
clean room with nice bathroom and TV. beautiful view to a spire. linen and towels provided. modest but delicious breakfast. good location. It should be a little warmer in the room. Heating was switched on only a few times in the night. So it was hard to get up from bed into "cool morning" :)
Great location, LCD tv in the room, good heating and electric windows, nice big bathroom. Great value for money and good atmosphere. Breakfast not great...
