8.8 Very good
Pros:The Location The Bar The rooms The style
Cons:The staff was helpful enough, but not the most welcoming front desk I have ever come across. The breakfast room is a bit like a cave.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Beautiful hotel with spacious and elegant rooms at the center and heart of Galway, only a 1 minute walk to the train station and a 3 minute walk to the Latin quarter. The hotel is in a beautiful stone turn of the century building that has been updated with all modern amenities. The rooms make you feel like you're staying in a palace.
