              The hotel itself is very nice, situated in a quiet neighbourhood. Bus stop is in the very-front of the hotel (operating line will drive you in the city centre). Staff is excellent and very helpful. Room is very clean, as well as the bathroom. Absolute thumbs-up!

              Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. We only paid 50euro per night so it was a good location for that price, sheets/towels were changed every day - even the towels that were used once and were still hanging up.

              The tiles in bathroom were loose and some were cracked, there was a pump right outside our door that was very noisy and was on at random times all day/night...the shower pump didnt work the first two times but then did work after that. The heat was not on - we stayed there the last weekend in November - I thought every place in the country would have the heat on then! And the spare duvet in the wardrobe did not have a cover on it!! No facilities in room for tea/coffee...or in the hotel for free..there was a coffee machine you had to pay for (even for hot water). There was parking for 5euro a night but it was not in a secure was up a laneway at the back of the hotel - anyone could walk there from the street. They requested that we leave our key at reception every time we left the hotel - when we came back there was someone new on reception (twice) and they just gave us the key when we told them the room number - without even a name check. There was also a female receptionist on and she kept theefront door locked all the time - we went out to the car to load it to check out and when we came back about 3minutes later we had to wait about that length for her to open the door because she was getting herself a cuppa. Its fine on a budget once you know what you're getting. Also its about a 15min brisk walk from the city centre (northside), if you are going to Trinity College/Guinness Storehouse/Kilmainham Gaol...allow 25-40mins from the hotel.

              The bed was comfortable, you get what you pay for. If you pay low rate don't expect anything other than the bare basics. But it is a nice place to stay. the majority of the hotel was clean and tidy

              The bathroom was a tip, dirty window sills, broken toilet, the room was noisy, the staff were unaccommodating to any complaints or difficulties, and the breakfast is not worth 9euros. We were told that other people had pre allocated themselves rooms, but we were never given this opportunity - staff members came across inexperienced, and should not be left to run the hotel by themselves

              Nice and calm neighborhood. 46A bus station to city center just in front of the hotel. Clean room. Extra comfortable bed. Excellent WiFi in the room and in the lobby. You can leave your luggage after check out without any fees. Check the flyers from the reception. You can find 10% discount coupons to many attractions.

              No hand held shower head, only a rain one. The breakfast could be better.

              Nice Irish Breakfast. Restaurants, Pubs with live Music nearby. Good location to take bus to Dublin.

              Our room 54 was located next to the Boiler room and was very hot. Had to leave the window open and the fan on all the time. Luckily the temperature outside was quite cool.

              The location was very good, bus stop right outside the hotel. The reception area was beautiful and very welcoming. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful.

              Furnishing was in poor condition (door handle and wardrobe handle were wobbly) and definitely needed renovation (mildew in the shower) Our bathroom seemed as if it hadn't been cleaned before our stay. Breakfast was too expensive and the selection very limited. (But there's a lovely little cafe just around the corner where you can have a wonderful breakfast) It looked like the hotel was in renovation process but our room wasn't.

              Helpful staff, quiet location, not an overcrowded hotel, bus stop right outside, good price, helpful guest info in bedroom, comfy bed.

              The guest information said that we could buy a bottle of wine from reception but when we asked about this it was intact not true, apart from that everything was lovely.

              Location okay as only 15 min walk into Dublin City Centre

              The room we had was the smallest room ever, we couldn't even unpack you suitcase as no room to move and the bathroom was a joke - it was so small you couldn't even sit on the toilet probably without the hand- basin getting in the way. Shower was awful and leaked. However, the hotel was nice and clean. Shame about the room and they need more staff at breakfast to serve people - had to wait ages for someone to take our order to cooked breakfast and tea/coffee.

              Friendly staff, the room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was good, portion size good and plenty of choice.

              A bit to far from the main centre, a good 30 to 40 mins walk, we had a ground floor room which seemed to be very noisy with the other guesses moving around, inside and out side in the car park.

              Good location not far from the city centre, bus stop literally in front of the house but the room was very quiet. The rooms we got were even better than we hoped: spacious, clean, tastefully furnished. The full Irish breakfast was really hearty. An excellent choise for the money. (We were two married couples between 50 and 60.)

              No free Internet access for those who have no laptop with them. (But it is understandable with respect to the price of accomodation.)

              4 times we have stayed at the chareville and the staff are very friendly, its clean and very comfortable an, excellent value and central for either the city or country side surrounding dublin.

              hot drinks machine now 1 euro but it was free on our previous visits.
