Very clean and modern. Staff was wonderful. Only problem was not earning honors points because i booked through a 3rd party. Non points rate. Property is a bit outside the city center
The food, bar and dinning area. Hotel staff, polite and receptive. Bathroom dirty, hairs in sink. Wet room floor drained the wrong way and ended up standing in puddles of water. Check out took to long and seemed dis-organised.
Avalon House is full of amenities and friendly travelers - the perfect place to stay in Dublin. Nice, clean facilities with a delicious free breakfast! Play pool with new friends, eat cheap by cooking in the huge kitchen, go on the free walking tours, use the free tablets, sleep in comfortable beds, and be close to all the wonderful sights Dublin has to offer. No complaints here - I've already recommended Avalon House to all my friends!
It was walking distance to Trinity College, Temple Bar and many of the sites in Dublin. This place was disgusting! The room was dirty, the bathroom smelled moldy and the carpet was so nasty, we were afraid to walk on it without shoes. Additionally, we almost got stuck in the lift because it was broken, but no one bothered to put up a sign! We were there for 3 days, and it was broken the entire time we stayed there. We never saw any maintenance people even attempting to repair it. This place was not family friendly as indicated!!
We enjoyed our stay in one of the twin private rooms very much. The breakfast was very basic and so was the room, but everything was really clean and the land lady was the nicest one I've met during my many travels worldwide. She let us in when we first arrived in the middle of the night, helped us with the sightseeing and gave a lot of very helpful advice. In my opinion it was extremely good value for money, it was cheap but still offered free breakfast and very clean rooms. Would stay there again at anytime. As I said, it was a lovely stay. The only thing perhaps worth mentioning is that the room was very cold at night as the building is pretty old. The covers were really warm though, so it wasn't really a problem, but during the winter I assume it might be.
Reasonable accommodations, short walk from city center There was no lounge or bar to meet other travelers, so it had all of the hostel accommodations, bunk beds, shared shower etc, with none of the benefits of the fun atmosphere.
