This cheerful, well-run hotel certainly wins in the location stakes, sitting right in the middle of trendy Temple Bar. Guest rooms are pleasant, decorated in a clean, modern style, with big, comfortable beds. Executive rooms offer extra space for a small premium. Teeny-tiny “Pod” rooms provide the best value but absolutely no space. Toast, the in-house restaurant, has a good, reasonably priced menu. The downstairs bar has live music nightly, which can make sleeping a bit of a challenge, but this is Temple Bar, and if you’re up for a party a dozen other lively pubs are within a stone’s throw.
