The hotel is in a great area very central a easy to find. I had previously read the reviews and have to agree with a lot of them. The hotel is indeed short of TLC! The reception area was OK but very small and definitely in need of redecoration considering this is the first you see of the hotel. The... More

Walkable location to Christchurch, Dublin Castle, Dubliner, Grafton area, and of course all the bars and restaurants in Temple Bar. I was traveling with my two sisters (late 30s-early 40s) and our Mom (late 60s). The hotel is a little on the older side and only partially updated, but was clean and a good size. The price was moderate, so... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Arlington at Temple Bar- it's very centrally located and dispite being situated in the busiest area of the city it is actually really quiet and we didn't hear any street noise at all. The room was very clean and included all the amenities you would expect; toiletries, tea/coffee making facilities,... More

Stayed here while going to see a show in the Olympia. Lovely hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable and surprisingly quiet given it's location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also very nice. Good quality food and plenty of it. I would recommend it to anyone staying in the City and will definitely be staying... More

I haven't stayed here to comment on the rooms but I met a friend here one morning for coffee and thought it was a lovely hotel. The waitress was extremely friendly and I would return here again. We sat at a window table and thought it was a lovely spot to sit a while and watch the world go by.... More

Someone paid for me to stay in this hotel and it was their choice because it was convenient to where we were working, but Temple Bar is the tourist party district of Dublin and this hotel has adapted to the area's needs. I'm assuming the rooms arepainfully small because they're not expecting guests to spend much time in them. The... More

This hotel was in the perfect location. We left the airport and got on the number 747 bus (6 euro) and got off at temple bar. We walked up the street for about ten minutes and the hotel was there in the heart of temple bar. The hotel had a welcoming reception and the staff were great. Very welcoming. The... More

the Arlington is a great place to stay. Very central. The prices are very cheap for the area. The rooms are dated and old,but they are clean and comfortable. It could do with a bit of updating but it is not a bad place to stay. Generally the first place I would choose for a one night lay over. Enjoy.

Thought this hotel would be handy as I was going to see a show in the Olympia, location wise it was brilliant. Reception area gives a great vibe however once you go through the doors to the lifts things start to change, lift is very slow, stairs leading up to the rooms need new carpet, which is very worn. Booked... More

We went to the Arlington Hotel concert rooms/conference area/diner and watched a bad. The atmosphere was pure Dublin and we had a great time. Music, food, Guinness all hit the mark, took a while to get served at the bar but I suppose when the place is full you expect that. Legendary Dubliners were brilliant
