I stayed in the Mercantile with two friends in September and it was great for what we were looking for which was going out, drinking and taking in the sights of Dublin. Our room was a good size for the 3 of us (Room 105) and had everything we needed. The room was extremely noisy with the bars below and... More

Stayed here for 1 night while on a business trip in July. Stayed on a Sunday so figured it would be quiet. Asked for a quiet room and had a nice and comfortable room on the top floor facing the back street. The room was very hot and had the vent from the kitchen near by plus the street below... More

Myself and my partner popped in here the other day to have a drink. We do this often and always like to try to find a hidden gem. We both ordered cocktails. The barmaid had no idea what she was doing. It took twenty five minuets to prepare two drinks. She kept disappearing. It was obvious she didn't know what... More

I'd been in the mercantile before for gigs and a drink. This was the first time staying though in the hotel. Rooms were good from what I remember. There's a late bar and a venue for music also a good restaurant doing daily deals. We got steak and chips for a tenner each, which was great for the money. The... More

Must be the noisiest hotel in all Dublin. The party outside goes on all night. First thing in the morning the cleanup starts with the banging and scraping sounds of the beer kegs being changed. Our room looks out on the alley and the building next door, amplifying the sounds. This is not the hotel for rest in order to... More

This post is a little delayed. We stayed here back in June and although the Hotel was extremely central it was a bit steep in prices for the overall decor and extremely slow lift. We ate in the bar which was lovely during the day as it was nice and quiet but at night time I would imagine eating in... More
