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
Location is central intially one of the beds was broken so we had to switch rooms
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.
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.
Clean spacious rooms, good breakfast selection, good location (convenient for the Grand Canal Theatre), good for shopping with the Luas very close by.
very goos size room, with nice facilities the cracked sink in the bath room could be replaced- would give an even better impression of the hotel
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 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
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.
particularly helpful and friendly staff
the hotel was beautiful on arrival with plenty to do around the reception area. the room was fab so comfy and plenty of space. we ate in the hotel all weekend and from the breakfast right down to the food after the concert was superb. staff were very helpful and friendly . would deffo recommend to stay here. This hotel should be a 4 star and not 3 star as rated. the only downfall was that we couldn't get breakfast in bed the next morning but other than that no problems
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
The location on the Liffey is good with good access to the city and to the Airport Bus. Breakfast was very good but otherwise did not use the restaurant. Rooms spacious and well appointed There are no leisure facilities such as a pool , exercise room etc
The pleasant staff, convenient location & comfortable bed. Also that the room was recently renovated That the breakfast wasn't included in the price.
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 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.
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!
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
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.
The hotels location was excellent. Connelly station right across the street. Temple bar approximately 20-25 minute walk or take the Lucas.
Convenient to city centre, fabulous clean modern rooms, helpful staff Noisy, by railway line
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.
friendly staff, great location
The rooms were lovely and very comfortable
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.
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.
It was comfortable , clean and rooms were soundproof. Breakfast was too expensive.
comfort and hospitality and location
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.
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
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...
Friendliness and ready to help staff attitude
Friendly staff, good facilities and location
This hotel had a friendly atmosphere.
Staff were very helpfull.
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.
Friendliness of staff, fully equipped room, nice and warm and comfortable
we had a meal in the resturant and it was fab.well priced,polite staff.
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,
Excellent shower in our room, staff very helpful, good location Breakfast ought to be included in the tariff
Everything, the staff were extremely helpful, nice room, good facilities and easy to get around Dublin on foot.
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
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 rooms are too noisy. It was impossible to sleep.
i knew it from before, and liked it. no
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!
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..
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.
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...
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.
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
location not having phones in the rooms
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" :)
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...
