Travelodge Rathmines Hotel Dublin Reviews
Good, cheap accomodation Dec 10, 2010
When looking at places to stay in Dublin (that were resonably priced), a hostel seemed the only cheap accommodation. But we found a Travelodge for near enough the same price (about 117 Euros for three nights for two people) which in the short amount of time we had before we went, was good for us.
The hotel wasn't anything special, but that didn't matter, it had a heating system that took a LONG time to heat up (when it was -7 outside) but it worked. There was a good enough bath/shower but no shampoo/lotion (good old Aldi was next door though) and the hairdryer and tv was something was the stone age but we only watched it for a couple of hours a day.
There was a kettle and coffee/tea to drink and the beds were comfortable enough! The only thing I'd say is that when waiting for the heating to kick in, we could've done with some extra blankets but I'm sure you could ask for them at reception if need be. We needed some spoons for breakfast and they were more than happy to get some for us. The reception staff were quite friendly, we talked to one guy for about 15 minutes and he was great.
It was maximum half an hour walk to get to the main shops/national museums and once we figured out the route, it was easy to get anywhere! Which was ideal because it saved money on public transport. Plus, the Irish were more than happy to help us when we got slightly lost on our first day and were really friendly so don't be afraid to ask!
All in all, if you want relatively cheap accommodation, aren't too fussy and want a good sleep, I'd consider this hotel and I'd go there again!
You couldn't hear people talking in other rooms or the noise from their tv's so it meant a good nights sleep and our towels and bedding were changed everyday so good hygiene.
