This was our first visit to Dublin...My mum and daughter accompanied me. The number 747 dropped us immediately outside the Arlington Hotel. Upon arrival the reception had a booking for only two people. However, they took full responsibility and the manager went above and beyond his capability to make sure we were fully compensated and accommodated for, in every possible... More

Stayed here for one night as was going to a concert in the Olympia Theatre, this hotel is in a brilliant location. It was very welcoming and staff were very friendly. Rooms had everything we needed, although they were a bit rough around the edges. We didn't pay a lot for the room so we were pleasantly surprised. Breakfast in... More

Great location on the edge of Temple Bar, opposite Dublin castle.Close to everything. Room basic and dated with a few defects, but these were attended to when reported. Awesome breakfasts. Good WiFi in rooms. Some staff struggled with understanding English. Disappointed in the "traditional music 7 nights a week" blazoned on the outside of the hotel, and on the room... More

We stay here almost every time we come to Dublin. We have stated here on 3 occasions so far. It's in the perfect location and very reasonable in price. The bar attached to the hotel (Legends) is nice for a few drinks before you head out on a night out too. We normally visit around Christmas time for a few... More

Spent three nights in this hotel. As hinted at in the title this friendly, superbly positioned hotel needs a little updating. The rooms are more than adequate with basic facilities, certainly clean but a little outdated, but remember what you paid. Stayed in a top floor room overlooking a side street, very quiet so a good nights sleep was had.... More

We checked in for 2 nights this weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday here in beautiful Dublin. The hotel was not luxury but perfectly adequate, spotlessly clean and anything we needed was readily available. We were greeted by a charming young lady on reception when we arrived, she then checked us in and took care of our bags while we... More

This is a very comfortable, clean hotel in temple bar area. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed with a nice clean bathroom. Not overly modern but enjoyed the stay. We ate in the bar and the food was great. My drink was forgotten about but it didn't really matter. Friendly staff and I'd be happy to recommend this hotel... More

Good value hotel in Temple Bar district of Dublin. We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault them. The rooms and facilities were basic but clean. Staff were friendly and helpful and they have a pub/bar on the bottom floor where local folk singers and dancers perform regularly. Good value breakfast and other meals also served in the pub dining... More

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay here -- the breakfast is so good and we didn't eat all day - it's located in a great place for a lot of attractions and the bars and atmosphere of Dublin -- comfy beds -- very clean and nice staff --- will certainly always stay there when we visit Dublin again
