Good location
It was interesting that of all things to skimp on this hotel chose to skimp on soap. You received one bar that was good for both the shower and the sync. They were fine when we requested an additional 1 though. The rooms are fairly small but very clean and adequate and they have very unique a lighting in the rooms so you can make it match your needs. The location was quite good. If you like shopping there is shopping less than a block away and we were able to navigate throughout the city walking.

My experience at BreakFree on Cashel
I stayed for 2 nights and even thought I put makeup my room sign, my room didn’t get clean on 2nd night. The location of the hotel is very convenient and in safe location. I can go to all the tourist places and everything within 10 - 20 minutes walking distance. The room is very small and no windows. Since I travel alone and have 1 big and 1 small luggage so it’s okay for me. The room have a storage under the bed for me to put my luggage otherwise it will be pretty tight and no place to move around. I didn’t spend a lot of time in my room so it’s okay for me. If you are on a budget and want a convenient location and didn’t mind with small room than this is for you.

Good Place to Stay
This was a windowless room but I didn't need a window. TV worked, good bathroom and quiet. The only problem was eating dinner in the evening when they serve liquor. For some reason they feel they have to play the music at a level I consider too loud.

great place to stay on low/mid budget but the room was small (as in no place to sit down for more than 1 person) but this was expected.
