Fabulous 8.8 From 100 reviews

Very good 8.0
Great location in Galway
Great location in the heart of Latin Quarter . Lots of places to eat and drink . Some excellent pubs very close, be aware the restaurants stop servivng food around 9pm so plan to eat earlier .Galway is a lot of fun . Room is small so be aware of that . Our room did not have A/C so that was an issue. Also late night noisy from bar may be a concern to some

Good 6.0
Small and noisy. So very noisy.
I was staying here for 5 nights for a conference that was on over a weekend (who does that?!). This hotel was within walking distance of the conference venue, so I figured it was a fairly safe bet. Unfortunately, I couldn't have picked a worse spot for trying to get enough sleep for all the early starts. The room was small, but cosy. However where they had tried to make the most of it with decor, they'd taken away valuable table space with oversized bedside-lamps. Now, the location is both brilliant, and awful, depending on what you want from your stay. As mentioned, I was at a conference, so I wanted a good night's sleep each night. However, my room faced directly out on to the roof of the dancefloor of the pub downstairs, so I was treated each night to ridiculously loud music AND stomping feet until 2.30am. I mentioned this to the staff when I asked for earplugs. They know it's noisy, but when one night in the bar makes more money than the whole hotel being occupied, they're prob not that worried. The car park was also an issue - as it's not part of the hotel, and not free. It's a multi-storey car park about 2 mins walk away, and has a reduced overnight rate. Which I'd wished I'd known before I booked. The staff on reception were really friendly, however, and very helpful (albeit with some confusion over the payment procedure in the car park from the guy who checked me in!). Perfect for a hen night. Not great if you need a good night's sleep
