Chris Goldby

22 July 2009 Chris would recommend this property

Liked: The Issacs was good, had a good court yard, good kitchen, good space, good lounge / games room downstairs and a good room, safe, secure and nice soft bed. The location was excellent close to everything, the city center and the ever popular Temple Bar area. There was something vaguely clinical about it which sort of ruined its character a bit. Maybe it was the harsh, bright corridor lighting? There was a noise problem, if groups of people gathered in the corridors to talk loudly during sleeping hours you couldnt help but hear the noises everywhere. The internet was a bit harsh to, 1 euro for 15 min or 2 Euro for the half hour? Theres an internet cafe a block away offering the internet for 1 euro for a whole hour! The staff were very friendly and helpful though and the kitchen storage was a gem. An added bonus were the soft couches in the lounge room.

Disliked: Chris left no negative feedback.
