Excellent location, bus stop from airport right outside and nice walk along the Quay a must. Not too far from the main areas like O'connell Street etc. The staff were very helpful, even printing off my boarding pass for Ryan air (Grrrr! but that's another story) I would definitely stay here again.
This was a perfectly fine hotel all things considered but given what my company paid for business accommodations it was a little disappointing. Nothing that would stop me from staying there again, however.
The good: the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I called in advance for an early check-in and when I arrived at 10:00AM my room was ready. The rooms are comfortable with enough space, a couple comfortable chairs as well as an iron and blow drier. The breakfast cost €10 per day but it was quite good--there was a selection of some pastry, typical Irish/English breakfast (cheese, deli meats, cooked tomatoes) as well as cereal, hot cereal, eggs and coffee. The restaurant served lunch and dinner as well as room service (€4 surcharge) and there was a full bar. Free wifi throughout the hotel was an unexpected but very welcome amenity.
The bad: as my colleague aptly put it, the hotel seemed very "austere" and I must agree. I've never been to a hotel that didn't even have a piece of paper and pen in a drawer for you to jot down notes. The rooms didn't have a minbar and there were no ice machines. The bathrooms had what I would imagine to be the cheapest toilet and facial tissue they could get their hands on. And a very odd thing that I noticed was that I ordered room service and my finished tray sat outside my door for a full 24 hours before someone took it away.
Notes: if you're going to be in the financial area or convention center than this is a fine hotel. If you're going for the tourist areas then you're looking at a 15-20 minute walk to get to the main areas (St. Stephen's Green, Temple Bar, etc.). From the airport you can take a taxi for about €25 (25 minute drive) or there's a bus that will drop you off right in front of the hotel.
As I said, I would certainly stay here again but I would also take a close look at other hotels that may be further away. I saw a couple other hotels where some colleagues stayed (on the other side of the river) and at least from an aesthetic point of view I can say that they were significantly nicer.
good location, walking distance to everything.
Good value for money( booked direct for a deal)
only downside don't ask for a front facing room, as traffic heavy at times and noisy.
I've stayed here a few times recently. Everything you need is in the one hotel, including vending machines for water and snacks! Food is average but tasty and there is a full bar. It is perfect for going to events in the O2. There are plenty of rooms and many don't have a view but if you are lucky enough to get a room at the front of the hotel you get a beautiful view of the Liffey and the Dublin Docklands, especially when it is lit up over Christmas.
As many of the hotels around town go recently, you may get a room with a double bed and a single, which just takes up space, but some of the rooms here have a double bed and a couch (which can be converted into a bed) which is quite nice. The beds are average to small, especially for a double and the rooms are not extensive. The bathrooms are compact but there is a bath, shower, toilet and ample sink room in most. The prices are fairly reasonable and they regularly have special offers. I parked across the bridge with onstreet parking, which can be quite costly in the city. There is also a carpark just left around the corner after the hotel and more onstreet parking there also.
The rates here are reasonable, and the service was good. It is located on the river, so there is reasonable access to both the north- and southside attractions. It is also right next to the central bus station, so getting here from the airport (via the 747 bus) is really easy.
I've never tried the restaurant here, but it looked reasonable. The rooms are comfy and always quiet. I'd stay here again.
This Jurys is good for the price. Check out the hotels website before booking, it usually works out cheaper than some other package deal sites. Located on the river Liffey, lovely views and about a 10 minute walk to O'Connell Street, one of the main streets in Dublin. The only issue with this location is the noise of the traffic during rush hour as it is located on the main road to Dublin port and the road can get quite busy. If you keep the windows closed or ask for a room at the back of the property, the noise wont be a problem
