Five of us stayed in the annexe of this hotel last night and thank goodness it was for one night! It needs a total makeover. Grubby, tired and smelly. We battled to turn the key in the door to get in after walking up four flights of stairs! maybe the hotel itself is good enough but the annexe is really... More

We thought we were getting a hotel right in the centre of things. Unfortunately, it was 'too' central! The Band was playing right below our room until 3 am every morning. Very noisy. The only positive thing I can say is that the staff were nice, and honest about the noise (reception warned us upon arrival) and offered us free... More

Grubby, smelly, too hot, not as described, definitely not modern rooms, asked for reduction as so terrible but no joy. Wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. Everything about it is awful. Sheets not changed, Bath so shallow you cannot cover your body lying down. Pictures on rooms do not show the state they are in.

Perfect location, staff were super helpful and beds were very comfortable. Our one night stay was perfect here when visiting friends as the location is great for anything central in Dublin however it's a little run down and old fashioned, could do with a lick of paint and a little TLC.

I have just come back from a 3 night stay here. I was dubious given the reviews, but it is not that bad!! Reception staff are lovely, very helpful and accomodating and the location of this hotel is perfect. The rooms are basic, granted, but when exploring a city i dont tend to spend much time in the room. We... More

Ignoring gentle warnings in guidebooks to avoid Temple Bar area if one actually wants to sleep at night, I booked two nights at Riverhouse Hotel - so I had fair notice of the noise. What I didn't know to expect was the bare minimum in accomodation. While the front desk staff was quite friendly and helpful, I was surprised to... More

The website hotel description doesnt match with what you will really find there. Hotel rooms. Not recommended unless you are going out until 2:30 or 3am. A refurbishment is necessary. Breakfast service ok.

You kind of have to accept some noise as it's Temple Bar so that aside it's shocking. Really only stay here if you have no where else to go and need a roof over your head. The rooms are small, fair enough but the smell, OMG it lasted for 24 hrs after our return. Everything is shabby, the whole place... More

Rooms were extremely outdated and shabby with cracked tiles in bathroom. Could hear the guests move around in rooms beside ours. We stay in Dublin frequently and we are used to the general noise of temple bar...but this was a whole new level. We were out late and had a few drinks ourselves...but the all night noise from the club... More

Breakfast ok. Impossible to sleep until after 2:30 am, no chance of an early night. Relatively clean, not worth the price. Never recommend. Nothing works, hair dryer didn't work. Staff at reception weren't too welcoming. Lacked in customer service. Minus 1 is a complement.
