This small hotel is full of quirks—not all of them convenient (there’s no elevator and plenty of stairs, for instance), but the bedrooms are comfortable, contemporary, and surprisingly large for a place in this price range. A converted townhouse, the hotel was built in 1785, and some of the bedrooms retain a historic feel, while others are more modern. Quadruple rooms offer outstanding value for families. From South Frederick Street it’s a short walk to Trinity College and all the action; it’s also—a comparative rarity in the city center—generally quite peaceful at night. Breakfast is good, with cold and hot options, but it’s served in a separate building, which—depending on where your room is—might mean walking outside briefly.
