We were staying elsewhere but came here for breakfast both mornings. It's excellent. Food is fresh and made to order. Staff are really pleasant and helpful. Window seat best in house. Not bad value for money. Has a really lovely atmosphere.

The Good : Excellent Location Official Dublin Arsenal supporters club!! Bar Staff The Bad: As typical as super pubs work they skimp on bar staff and it is the norm when the bar I view Arsenal games in is packed to just have one bar staff on for the majority of the time. There really is no excuse of this... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night to go to a concert. We chose mercantile for its excellent location. The hotel is overpriced and grubby! Reception called our room at 9am to asked questions about our booking, cleaning ladies walked into our room as we were sleeping at 10 am and knocked again at 11am. Furniture and fittings were...

In the city center, good location near everything. Service ok, the staff is nice. I've been there many times because a good relation price/quality, but this time it seemed to me expensive. Do not expect a luxury place but correct and clean. The bar has good craic

We stayed for four nights at The Mercantile. The rooms were large and nice (though our tv was of the old type - not a flatscreen). However the traffic at Dame Street is ongoing 24/7 and neverending, thus due to the bad windows earplugs were needed for a good nights sleep - which was actually provided in the room, so... More

Although I did not stay here due to the pictures on trip advisor (I moved to the Radisson). I could not believe how rude they were on the phone to me. They were practically yelling at me about how they have never had someone cancel the day of (I looked at trip advisor as my flight was taking off to... More

This hotel looks the part, but with the price they charge not sleeping a wink the whole nite is just UNBELIEVABLE. From the music playing untill 3 am, the late nite revellers singing in the street, the bottle bin lorry emptying the bins at 5, the street cleaners after 7 & the beer lorry slamming kegs around for an hour...

We decided we would go here for a nice Mother's Day lunch. We arrived and their were several staff about. It said wait to be seated and we did wait. Then the dining area was booked out, that was fine we sat down at the back near the back door. I ordered the wings and the fish and chips and... More

Very central location (Dame St). Walking distance to all shops on O'Connell St and Grafton St, Stephen's Green. There is a large variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants in this area, as it is opposite Temple Bar. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel bars very clean and offered a great menu for all times of the day.... More

Staff were unpleasant to the point of rudeness. Asked to pay for food up front because of exceptional business (less than half full). Balked when asked about providing a vegetarian sandwich option. Could not have been made feel more unwelcome.
