TOP Hotel/Recommended”

I and my husband travel Dublin once or twice a year and we stayed to different hotels all the time. Among all of them, the Holiday Inn Express gave us beyond our expectation. Location - City center everything is near of everything. (Shopping streets,restaurant,train station,famous bridges and alot more). Housekeeping - is the coolest! If You dont want to clean up the room but then you wish to change towels and refill your coffee/tea you dont have to call for request becoz Everyday they will hang a plastic bag to your door containing all the room toiletress,tissues,towels,coffee/tea. Breakfast - is fantastic for quick grab to fill your stomach. What makes me amazed was you can take away some breakfast with you too. They provide plastic bag for bread and a cup for coffee. Staff - Is the most kindnest, attentive, and most considerate. My husband had an accident he collapsed in the room and hit his head in the table. The reception was quick to respond and checked us in the room. Since we reported it as accident, they are so kind that they didnt charged us for the damaged. We are so thankful and satisfied with our stay.

Great Hotel”

There are many pluses going for this hotel: - The staff were super friendly and helpful. - The rooms were a good size, comfortable, and nicely decorated. - The windows were double glazed, with an extra sliding window in the inside sill which helped a lot in isolating external noises. - The Internet speed was good. - The breakfast was nice, but I would suggest more variety in hot foods. Otherwise myself and my family members we loved the three rooms we booked. We stayed there for two days. Highly recommended if the price is within your budget.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and every single staff member was very friendly and nice, especially a young man in the reception. I personally would’ve loved to have little bit more different kinds of fruits served during the breakfast and it would’ve also been great if there were fridges in the rooms but other than that everything was great.

The hotel is in a great spot just walking distance from lots of pubs and food places. The staff were brilliant especially when we had trouble checking in with our bank card. Our room was a good size and very clean . It had a Hairdryer, iron and ironing board aswell. The toiletries were Dove shower cream/shampoo and Dove hand wash. Our breakfast was good but not the hottest as lot's off hotels only have thing to keep food warm. We would definitely go back.

The hotel is location in great position on Collonel’s upper str, very convenient to visit the city of Dublin. It’s next to the bus stop arriving from Dublin airport. The personnel( especially in the reception) is great, amazing, polite and very helpful. The room was modern,simple, very clean with comfortable bed and we liked also the existence of the double glazed widow with non at all external noise.The breakfast was included in the price but it was very average with no variety.Generally, I would recommend this hotel and I would certainly revisit it.

Basic hotel in O Connell St”

Location is very central at Upp Connell St. Buses, tram stops n taxi stand right at door step. Hotel is no frills type, clean bed, small room. Not even a fridge but that's fine. Another plus - serves complimentary b/fast. Juices, coffee, pastries, bread, sausage, bacon, scrambled egg - the regular spread that you see in 3 star hotels like Maldron. Price is expensive though - €200 per night. Always very busy hotel. Service is efficient n OK.
