Stayed here for 1 night in June while visiting for a concert. Nice warm welcome at reception. Room spacious and clean. Bathroom kinda small but didn't bother us. Would stay here again great location too and convenient to all the bars and shopping

Has a great bar with live music at night. Great location within walking distance to the major sites. Hotel was a little dated and could use a face-lift in the room we had. Shower was a little hard to use. No air conditioning which could be an issue but we opened the windows and it was fine as it wasn't... More

Smack on the middle of the main lively street with the O Connel bridge about 20 steps away. Ask for river facing rooms on the Leffy. Lovely shows at night so you don't have to go looking for music and pubs at night-- it's all in house! The red bus stops right outside the hotel door and is so convenient... More

Had a great night in the Arlington Hotel Bar. In my experience they have the best bar staff in Dublin. Very friendly and not sure of a tale or two. I would highly recommend popping in to have a Guinness.

I've stayed here plenty of times and never had any complaints but the last time i stayed I have to say I was very disappointed. Firstly the bar staff spent more time chatting to each other rather then serving. Secondly we couldn't get a drink after we came back to hotel after a show we were at even tho it... More

We stayed just one night at the hotel for a comedy gig nearby. The location was excellent; across the road from Dublin Castle, a short walk from Temple Bar and Trinity College. However considering we paid quite a bit for the room only, the hotel itself was a little disappointing. The walls and carpet were a grubby and the room... More

You know how an old lady has her quirks and does her own thing? Well, the Arlington has it's quirks as it to is an old lady. But pay no attention to the slightly chipped paint and somewhat sparse decor, because the staff at this hotel make it the only place I would stay in Dublin. My husband had a... More

Very clean hotel however a bit noisy due to cars and and a pub just next to the narrow street. The bed seems to be a folding one and it was very very squeaky even when walking in the room. As i said very clean and central......only a few minutes away from shops.

I have stayed at the Arlington O'Connell Street before and booked the Temple Bar hotel by mistake. The hotels are about a 10 minute walk apart from each other. The Temple Bar hotel is smaller and unfortunately only has music shows on Friday and Saturday nights in spite of the website saying that they have music every night. Our room... More

There is currently a renovation at the hotel façade with workers there, so we had to close the blinds. Hot water and heating is just awesome, the rooms are great. We also did not go on Celtic nights, those seems to be overpriced
