Address: Pearse Street, , Dublin, 2, Ireland

Star rating:
3 star hotel

4.2

This is far and away the best value three-star hotel in Dublin.

What a surprise package this hotel is!  It was completely refurbished recently creating an exotic and oriental interior, giving it an original edge. Love or hate it, it's an interesting mix of old and new world design. Antique furnishings marry with sash bay windows adorned by red velvet curtains and pink and purple walls. For a three star, some of these bedrooms are punching way above their weight.

Location

It is a short stroll from here to all city centre attractions and it’s only around the corner from Trinity College on Dame Street. The air coach drops off five minutes' walk away so the hotel is an easy 30-minute bus journey from the airport.

Bedrooms

Bedrooms far exceed three-star standards - some are four star in my opinion, with double sinks, Jacuzzi baths, leather seats and red sofas set out in a spacious area with king-sized beds, colourful decor and air conditioning. There are four levels of rooms, from standard, executive, Tara executive and Georgian suites. It's worth spending the extra cash on a suite to get the best value for money. Rooms in the old Georgian part of the building are less contemporary and more classic in style, while Tara rooms are the most modern. WiFi is throughout also.

Public areas

Georgian walls and a truly eclectic interior blend to create interesting public areas where lots of quirky, comfortable sofas and chairs are laid out so you can chill out and watch the world go by. Café Cairo is a popular space for groups.

Eating and drinking

Café Cairo is the airy, social eatery on the ground floor, wrapped around a cute leafy outdoors terrace, offering a well-rounded lunch menu of salads, burgers, snacks and wraps at reasonable prices (mains under 10 euros) and a dinner menu priced between 15 and 25 euros.  There's a generous buffet style breakfast.

Leisure facilities

There is a small gym here that ticks all boxes, with two bikes, two steppers, a treadmill and a TV.

Service

Super friendly and affable. No fuss and no frills.

Who stays there

Ideal for families, tour groups and budget travellers in search of a well-priced treat. The rooms are so stylish and spacious that it’s a perfect choice for couples in search of a bargain romantic getaway.

Price advice

Suites offer the best value for money. Guests park at Tara Street Car park, beside the hotel which costs €15 for 24 hours
