              • Single
                6.6

                Room was comfortable

                I was very disapointed that both the Bar and resturant was closed in the evenings. This was not made clear on the booking form or at the time of booking in. Had I have known I would have booked else where.

              • Family with children
                6.6

                I liked the style of the hotel and rooms. Location was excellent. Rooms were kept very clean except there was a blood stained pillow case on one of the pillows in room 212. My niece just swapped it for one in the wardrobe rather then callling reception.

                It would have been nice if there was a public bar.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Very convenient location and comfortable hotel for our purpose,which was a 4 day break in Dublin.

                We had a very comfortable room but it faced onto the road near traffic lights and was extremely noisy in spite of the fact that we did not open the windows.

              • Couple
                8.2

                The hotel staff was extremely helpful and made good recommendations for places to eat, sights to see and directions.

                It was in a good neighbourhood but still quite a distance from the Temple Bar and other areas on the other side of the river

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Excellent location and very friendly staff. Towels were also changed everyday and room was kept very tidy- lovely bathrooms.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                Good location to Dublin city and the big red bus stop was nearby

                The lift needs some attention noisy

              • Group of friends
                5.4

                Unbelievably!!! Could'nt get any bar staff on Saturday afternoon and when I went out to reception was told that they don't open the bar to the public??????????????

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                The location of the hotel and especially the friendliness of the receptionist when we arrived and and checked out. She was great.

                No bar facility we had to cross to the Davenport Hotel to use their bar. The response from staff when asked if any bar menu was available left a lot to be desired, only room service available which didn't help when you were staying across the street ?? Not even some peanuts or crisps available at the bar. The Car park rate although advertised at €10 for 24 hours overnight rate worked out at €26 euro from 120pm Saturday to 3pm Sunday which was expensive. This included the discount.

                The location of this hotel was excellent, 5 min to Grafton Street.

                The receptionist wasn't very people friendly. It was very expensive. Very old world.

                Location.

                Rooms small, decor shabby, enamel peeling off baths. No safety deposit box although advertised with same. Reception staff inarticulate. Also - not hotel's fault - there was a stag party which kept us awake until 3.20 am in the morning and until we complained nobody from the staff appeard to ask them to be quiet. Mont Clare needs complete refurbishment - even if it is only 3* . A lot of traffic noise.

                Helpful staff (eg providing extra pillows). Great location for a quick city break.

                Very weak shower.

                Location beside Merrion Square park where we had a sandwich lunch in Spring sunshine and close to City Centre for shopping and sight-seeing.

                a good central location. staff were friendly and helpful.

                We found it rather expensive. Breakfast was an add on which we thought could have been included in the price. Only had it there the first morning as we didn't find it particularly good value for money.

                It was a nice central location and was easy to find.

                I paid for a double room and was given a twin. Staff were extremely rude and brushed me off when I asked to be changed by saying "Oh well, the website often overbooks rooms". Ceiling in the bathroom was disgusting. Handle on drawer containing hairdryer was broken. Very poor quality overall.

                Hated the hotel.The hotel rooms were very dirty and had old worn bed covers and the furniture was falling apart.The rooms were tiny,the smallest i have ever seen in a hotel.The bathroom only had boiling water coming from both taps ,so we could not shower.No internet in the rooms.The hotel serves no food which is shocking!!!! We paid 89euro with no breakfast,was a rip of.Would never stay there again or any sister hotels.We got locked in the hotel car park which is five minutes walk from hotel. The part i liked most about the hotel was knowing i was leaving the next day
