    Historical Traveler Reviews North Star Hotel - Premier Club Suites Dublin

    Good location

    from

    The North Star was a great hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was fine. I stayed in a single room, so there was nothing spectacular. There was construction going on right outside my window so unless you want to check out the construction guy the view was non-existent. The noise from the construction wasn't a problem for me. If you plan on sleeping in late it might be. The location wasn't bad. Short walk to O'Connell St and all the sites. I went in May, which is considered their off season and the North Star was the most expensive hotel I stayed in. Although the cheapest I could find on the net. I would recommend booking for a couple of days and then finding a place when you get there. Dublin is FULL of places to stay and their Visitor Centers are extremely helpful.

    Good value hotel

    from

    The North Star has changed for the better since I 1st stayed in it several years ago. Do not let the outside put you off as it is a good value, centrally located, pleasant hotel. Rates vary on the Internet from 60 euro to 120 euro per room inc breakfast ( which is excellent food), they do have a car park for a 5 euro overnight fee, both the restaurant and bar offer good value for money. The rooms are a good size and well maintained. Many locals drink in the bar and unusually for Dublin most of the bar staff are local so they can give excellent advise on places to visit and see. It is a 10 - 15 min walk to Templebar which to be honest is only visited by Tourists, most Irish avoid Templebar because it is overpriced and over rated. 1 small gripe about the North Star is the noise of the passing DART ( Train )

    Okay but not brilliant

    from

    Bit disappointed with hotel in relation to price. we have stayed in cheaper and better elsewhere.

    It was a good 20 mins walk to Temple Bar area and we had warnings from locals not to walk back to hotel but to get cab as it is bad area. Didn't seem so bad though (same as London really).

    You can hear the trains from the room but not really at night (few bevvies probably sorted that out). Some strange intermittent buzzing in room but other rooms seemed ok. Some areas of hotel was bit tatty in decor but rooms were ok.

    Room was a good size, we had a double and single bed, clean and tidy; TV, tea and coffee, hairdryer. Had room overlooking building site but was not noisy over weekend.

    Buffet breakfast was ok. Avoid the black and white pudding as they can be used as ice hockey pucks. Reception staff friendly, breakfast staff a bit grumpy, sweet and helpful concierge guy. Couldn't tell if room service had been. They only seem to leave new towels.

    Oh and... some previous visitor left half bottle of coke and family pack of doritos in drawers...thanx for that !! Doritos came in handy when we got beer munchies !!!! have left few packets for next visitor !

    Avoid: Get a better deal elsewhere

    from

    I stayed here in May 2004 and I was disappointed--especially for the price--99 euros. The rooms are tired and worn out and lack charm and it is not conveniently located. It's close to the bus station but that just makes it seedier. It's a good 20-minute walk to the city center and even longer to Temple Bar area. Staff not overly friendly. Surrounding area somewhat scruffy.

    Don't judge a book by it's cover

    from

    Booked hotel via irelandhotels. When we first drove up, wondered what we had done as from the outside hotel isn't the prettiest and is on busy road right next to railway station. However, once inside we were pleasantly surprised. Decor was light, airy and welcoming. Room was a good size, we had a double and single bed, clean and tidy ; bathroom OK, though rather dark decor. TV, tea and coffee. Ensure you get room at rear of hotel, view is of a building site, however quieter than front as trains can be heard and seen. Line goes directly over reception! Buffet breakfast was well stocked and set us up for a days walking. All staff friendly and obliging, particularly concierge who was knowledgable and gave impartial advice. Would stay again. 20 mins walk to Temple Bar area.

    Cant falt a thing

    from

    We haven't a single bad thing to report about this hotel, All the staff were so helpful and friendly. if fact we didn't bother going to a tourist information office as they answered all our questions and the bars and restaurants the recommended were excellent.

    The room was spacious and very clean, our room was at the back of the hotel facing the railway but don't fear you don't get any noise.

    Its in a ideal location 10min walk from Temple Bar and all the main tourist attractions. And just to top this hotel off, the airport bus stops directly outside the hotel and costs only 5 Euro.

    Would recommend to all my friend and cant wait to go back again.

    Great hotel

    from

    Booked this hotel through Aer Lingus. Got a great rate. The check in went very fast. They were prepared for us and we were in our room in no time at all! The room was clean, and not small. The staff was VERY accommodating and friendly. The pub was great. The food was great and reasonably priced. Would stay there again!

    Clean and Comfortable

    from

    I booked this hotel via the internet not knowing what i was going to get but was pleasantly suprised by this hotel. It was clean, warm and the buffet breakfast was amazing as well as the staff. For a three star hotel that is reasonable in price i would recommend the hotel

    North Star Hotel

    from

    I loved the North Star Hotel - spent two nights there in October 2002.

    The ambience was lovely and the staff very courteous. I would stay there again if I get back to Dublin.

    The North Star Hotel

    from

    Lovely room - clean and well kept hotel.

    Good Pub attached. Good Restaurant attached.

    Directly across from Connelly Train Station.

    At the foot of Talbot Street - an easy walk to all of downtown Dublin. Convenience Store next door.

    Friendly and helpful concierge.

    The only problems are the Reception Staff who are not clued in despite their uniforms, etc. A lot of attitude and not much help, and the very limited room service menu.

    Our last day in Dublin

    Another "full Irish breakfast" followed by a walk down to the spire, and HOHO, this time headed for Jameson Whiskey! I thought this display was better done than the Guinness one, although it's not as popular. Guinness is almost an overload. It is so complex in terms of what is going on, and climbing to yet another level. The Jameson one is simpler …

    Am I obsessed with food? I think so. Included in our accommodation is a "full Irish breakfast", which consists of fruit and cereal (similar cereals to NZ), scrambled or fried eggs, cooked tomatoes, hash browns, declicious crispy fried bread (soooo bad), bacon, sausages, black pudding and white pudding, baked beans, and mushrooms. Heavy brown soda …

    Our last morning in Frankfurt and there is blue sky and sunshine. Typical. After enjoying our final German breakfast (once again ate far too much) there was packing to be done. Then, what to do? We decided on a last walk into Romer to buy Ron a wee souvenir and a coffee. This time we took a different route, alongside the river, to find a regatta …
