Good location, clean, friendly. The room we had was above the bar, the firstt night when there, there was music which made it noisey, but the second no music, so slept well. Breakfast a little poor but ok. Check in staff were very good and let us in to our room early.

Great location, clean, friendly. But tired rooms and decor, we moved rooms after first had refrigeration units outside the window which kept us up all night. Small helpings for breakfast. I suppose you get what you pay for! English not first language but, to be honest, its not the first language anywhere in the Temple Bar area. If we were going back we would be unlikely to stay again.

Basic, needs a lick of paint. Room was clean and the en suite had had a facelift. Breakfast adequate.....best bit, mega cheap and ideally located to explore this city

I actually liked this hotel, it was in a brilliant location, right by Temple Bar, the tourism office is a mere 2minutes walk away. The guided tour bus stop is around the corner. There is maid service everyday. I'd agree that the full irish breakfast is small in portion but there was always cereal and toast and tea/coffee as well! And the restaurant does overlook the previous nights discobar. I had a good service from the staff who were always helpfull and assisted me at all times. If you are looking for a hotel in the centre of dublin which you would use merely for bed and breakfast, then this is perfect!

Dreadful dump! Dingy, not dirty but not really clean! Worst hotel I have been in a long time!
NEVER AGAIN!!! AVOID IT! No resident lounge, no proper facilities: the breakfast was served in the previous night discobar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This place is a dump

We checked in to find a small room with three beds. We pulled the blind down and it crashed to the floor. the bathroom didnt have a facet on the hot water side so we took a cold shower. When we complained to the front desk they moved us to a different room instead of fixing the problems. The room we moved into had the main light out so we asked them to change the light bulb. We were there for 4 days and light was never changed. This place has a good location but is not worth whatever they charge. It is a real dump and one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed.

Faulty Towers has nothing on this!

If a hotel replicates Faulty Towers then this is it. First the good points......errrr....its near Temple Bar.
Now the bad points.....1. Room 310, the lift is actually built into this room, so if you want any kind of sleep forget it as the lift creaks & growns everytime its used. 2. Previous occupant must have been a chain smoker....it stank of smoke for the 2 nights we were there. 3. No Electricity for 4 hours in the evening(went off at the time we were getting ready to go out!)...Even emergency lighting wasn't on so everyone was walking around with candles!! (HSE please note) 4. Cold water stopped in the morning just when half way through a shower!..I still have the scold marks!) 5. The "Full Irish Breakfast" was in fact 1 minging sausage, 1 50p size piece of white pudding which was actually carbonised, 1 fried egg (acceptable quality), & a table spoon full of luke warm beans....just enough to feed my pet sparrow! 6. Staff that although generally courteous lacked in fluent English...i.e majority of Eastern European origin and subsequently the communication was limited....So if you do have the misfortune of finding yourself booked into Room 310, I suggest you take with you some light bulbs; a grease gun to grease the lift wheels; ear plugs; rations for the number of nights your there; an Albanian / Slovakian phrase book; Several water bottles and lots of air fresheners!!
 

Top Local Tips for Dublin

City bus tour Use the Dublin City Sightseeing tour red and yellow hop-on-hop-off open-top buses with excellent live commentary.

We loved the ability to walk everwhere Dublin is a wonderful city, especially loved the Dublin castle tour-for me this was a must see, it is free with the Heritage Card, we walked all around the city. The book of Kells was amazing...

Don't stay at the George Frederick Handel Hotel! It's all in the title... this is easily the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, for business or leisure.
