Wonderful hotel in great location. If you can check in to the hotel and use their car park before you head out to explore the town, you'll save yourself a headache....

This is a clean, modern, frankly pretty fancy place right in easy walking distance to all the sights. The room was comfortable, but the open and doors close a little hard - it takes a firm pull of the handle and good shove to open it, same to close it. The way the building is laid out, 4-5 room doors are all clustered in a hall, and you hear it every time someone has to have that door struggle. We didn't hear much else, just those loud doors. The breakfast service downstairs was also very good, a great meal to start the day.

You can't beat the location! Parking was easy (once they let you in) and the hotel was clean. My only complain is that the mattress was very uncomfortable....almost like a futon mattress. Regardless, I would stay here again.

The hotel did not look much at arrival as we came along the street with the car, we drove in to the car park behind the hotel (had to leave the car for a minute at the gate, go in and ask them to open for us). The staff was very professional, friendly and service minded, we found the room to be... well... perfect, (except the bed that was a bit too hard for our liking, Staff was informed and I guess it have been replaced by now) all was in a very hi standard, warm and dry, (not as we experience on other hotels/B&B's around Ireland, cold and damp). We found that the traffic around the hotel was not disturbing at all, and that gave us a good night sleep as well. Location wise it could not be better, we found it to be at walking distance to everything (and we are not much for walking), and needed to say, Kilkenny as a town have a very medieval feeling in a good way (reminds a lot of our favorite town Visby in Sweden/Gotland, feel wise). Over all, one of the best experience we had in Ireland, both hotel and town wise.

The location couldn't have been better, just a few minutes walk to EVERYTHING. Downstairs had a fabulous restaurant that we ate at our first night, the food, the service, the wine, fantastic. Breakfast in the morning was very good, and the coffee was delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

The tiles in the bathroom were loose. The tub had a black spot as thought it had not been cleaned. The room was very small and cold as the windows were wooden and not well insulated. You have to get someone from insode the hotel to open the gate to enter into parking lot this was a big hassel and the reception was not very friendly.

I stayed for 1 night & have to say the location is perfect. The only gripe I'd have is that the room & decor was a little tired & could've been better. I know what they were going for & I love the clean line, black & white mirrored look but there were scuff marks on the walls, an iron scorch mark in the carpet & some black mould in the bathroom. The bed was extremely comforable but creaked a bit when you moved & I'm not a heavy person, so if I'd have stayed more than 1 night I'd be complaining more.....in spite of all that though the quality of the breakfast made up for it :-) I would stay again & would recommend.

Excellent service and very stylish hotel in central location. Parking a bonus. First class restaurant. My room was well appointed and quite glamorous, although being at the rear had the noise from the fan from the kitchen, which did go off at 10.30. The soundproofing was not very efficient as I could hear intimate details from next door, but over quite quickly! Staff very friendly and helpful.

The food at the Zuni Hotel is really excellent. As the other reviewer mentioned, it is 5 star food without the 5 star price tag. The cafe/restaurant was buzzing with customers (especially locals) which is always a good sign. The kitchen was able to accommodate our food allergies without any fuss. We had the fish dish for lunch which was excellent value at €12. The courgette soup was gluten free and we were able to enjoy it with gluten free bread that the hotel provided. The cooked breakfast the next day was just as good. The only negatives were - the windows in the bedroom were more like a full length door -than a window, so we were not able to leave the window open when we were sleeping - this was inconvenient and we found the room quite warm and stuffy. Also, the bath itself was stained and looked a little grotty - the bathrooms could do with a makeover. Apart from that, we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back.

Dont be fooled the Zuni is a 5 star hotel without the price and with better staff. My experience here was fantastic to say the least. Me and my friend stay here at a very busy time of year new years eve and the day before. On arrival we noticed that the hotel is right bang in the middle of Kilkenny city the location really doesn't get any better then this. The staff, were the superior kind of staff that is really rare theses days. They really look after people and go the extra mile especially at breakfast and the reception staff are fantastic and helpful also. The rooms clean, spacious,quite and cosy not cold by any means the price is right. Would stay here again 110 percent YES i dont think id stay anywhere else in Kilkenny after staying in the Zuni.

Restaurant obviously is excellent, the staff tried very hard to be helpful and they all were very nice. We came for cultural events (not listed above: shame!) and enjoyed the city and the festival very much. We very much missed tea/coffee facilites in hotel room, which is standard in Ireland (early morning hot water wen need for diet reasons!) Room was too small. WC problem at start was better then, but not satisfactory until the end.

Great location with an award winning restaurant made Zuni a great place to stay. It meant breakfasts werealso fabulous rather than the usual mass prepared offerings.Rooms were clean, modern and great facilities. On site parking. All around terrific value and will recommend for anyone coming to Kilkenny.

We stayed one night in this hotel. Staff, service, food, location were all of the highest standard. There was absolutely nothing we could fault. There were 16 of us and we all agreed this was a superior choice. Well done to all at Zuni!

"Great location"
06/17/15 Bakeycake Waterford, Ireland
We stayed here as part of a group, really nice boutique hotel! Location is right on the main street, great for shopping and a night out! Staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and the bed was comfy. Also our room was at the front and there was no noise! We also ate in the restaurant, set menu, and it was great, had a number of options to choose from, breakfast too had a nice selection, different from the usual hotel breakfasts!

The hotel was comfortable and the staff was cheery and funny... enjoyed every interaction with them... The room was comfortable, the location was great for a hike down Patrick or High streets, with easy proximity to the castle, the pub district, Smithwicks, etc... Recommended...

really enjoyed the night I spent here! The entrance was in an unusual place at the back of the building, but there was free car parking which was helpful. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay and the rooms were really nice for the price we paid. Would definitely stay here again in the future!

"Glad we stayed here"
05/28/15 Malcolm G Mississauga, Canada
Hotel was easy to drive to. Room was clean, cozy and comfortable but without suitcase stand, safe or fridge. Bathroom was spotless albeit a little dated. There is a lift to ease getting the bags up to the room. Loud guests were heard through the door in the corridor outside our room throughout the evening (Note: it was a Saturday). Restaurant was great. All the hotel and restaurant staff were very professional, attentive and courteous. We would return and do recommend this establishment.

"It's good, but showing age"
05/22/15 Frederick_LittleC
The location was great. Parking tricky but ok with prior research. The staff were friendly and efficient. They were renovating the main restaurant while we were there, and hopefully will move onto the rooms next which are staring to show their age. We definitely would stay again, but I've have measured expectations.

"Great Location"
05/19/15 Karen M San Diego, United States
There are several hotels on St. Patrick's street and we picked the Zuni mostly because it had a place to park behind the hotel. It has a bar and an excellent restaurant (we were told, although we did not eat here). Our room was in the back where it was quiet. Nice large bed and nice clean room and bathroom. Would stay here again. And it is only a block from the Castle and from all the pubs and restaurants you would need.

"lovely place"
05/14/15 john m Kildare, Ireland
The staff was very nice and helpful. The location was close to most places you'd want to see. Our room was clean and comfortable, and it was a nice surprise to have an iron and ironing board in our room, as well as coffee and tea making items. The bed was very comfortable! Our breakfast was also delicious; we were able to choose from a menu of choices. We enjoyed our stay!

"Good Location"

Very central city location with a shared private car park. Rooms are very modern in style and quite comfortable. Breakfast was good quality and nicely presented but lacking in scope and taken in the somewhat cosy coffee shop, shared with passing customers.
