Just got back from a long weekend in Dublin for my 21st birthday with the girls, after reading some of the reviews on here I was a bit sceptical but I don't understand the bad reviews there is nothing but good things to say about this hotel. If you are going for a quiet weekend away then this isn't the... More

I previously reviewed this hotel in 2014, and my views haven't changed, I still don't understand the bad reviews! Yes there is noise from the main road, but it's neighbouring Temple Bar, what exactly do people expect?! As for people complaining about the decor, we found our room was fine, clean, light and comfortable with a big bed :) The... More

This hotel is well overdue a refurbishment. Dirty worn carpets, broken furniture, warped bathroom doors not to mention the extremely rude and unhelpful receptionist... time for a change of career I think! Very central hotel but noisy and shabby. And for the price they charge??!...

Had a fantastic time at the mercantile. It's very central to the pubs, clubs and shops. If you are looking for a hotel in a quiet area this hotel isn't for you but if your looking for somewhere central with a great atmosphere then this is perfect! The rooms were lovely. Clean and comfortable. The shower was like a super... More

We didn't enjoy this restaurant at all, it seemed overpriced for what it was and the food was particularly bad. I was served my sticky toffee pudding with a scoop of neon pink strawberry ice cream- it looked like I had ordered from the kid's menu. Not enjoyable at all, the main was atrocious. We really enjoyed the craic with... More

Hotel is in the center of all the action for downtown Dublin. Great to walk to everything. The only problem is it was hot one day and there is no AC in the building but the hotel did give us a fan. We had a drink and dinner at the restaurant which was good.

My wife and I concluded a two-week vacation tour of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland with two nights in Dublin at this hotel. Of all the hotels and B&Bs we visited, this was the worst by far. The elevator/lift was out of service when we arrived and no hotel personnel were offered to help carry our bags up three floors... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mercantile on our recent trip to Dublin. We stayed at the Mercantile for a week, and we were so pleased! The hotel is gorgeous, our room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. The location of the hotel was also a huge plus. It is... More
