My wife and I have stayed many

My wife and I have stayed many times in this hotel. We have been generally satisified. This time again with regard to the hotel we were satisfied. However this time the introduction of payment for parking was a disappointment. It was bad enough to have to pay but no preference is given for residents. On the day I arrived there were no spaces and was even told off for attempting to park. Had to park for a day on a nearby road. Would suggest double price for non residents and a smaller amount for residents ( if they have to charge.) Another moneymaking idea?? What about the customer experience.

While it is an old fashioned hotel

While it is an old fashioned hotel and a little tired around the edges in some ways it never the less makes up for it in pleasant old fashioned friendliness, helpfulness etc. The location is ideal for airport or town and the area Drumcondra is nice. Food is average. Lots of parking and a cheap an cheerful place to stay. I have been and will be back.

This place is nice enough for

This place is nice enough for the money I paid. I would suggest ringing the hotel to request a twin as you get a bigger refurbished room with a double and single. It is a handy location for beumont hospital. However they do charge €5 for car parking and are supposed to have free internet but it did not work while we were there which was disappointing. The tv was badly positioned and hard to see from the bed also the bathroom was not clean enough along with the carpet. On the plus side the bed was really comfy and I did get a great nights sleep!
