There was no air conditioning or fan in the room on a day that was 27 degrees celsius. Not even complimentary drinks were offered, no bottled water, nothing! After a very warm night and difficulty sleeping, I just managed to catch some sleep from about 7am but was awoken at 10am by a call advising me that breakfast would be... More

I thought the hotel itself was quaint and charming. However, I wrote up at 1:20 am to the sound of crashing bottles. There's some kind of recycling depot directly behind the hotel. And for some strange reason the city council lets them do their kind of work in the early hours. Beware.

This is a bit different as the rooms are in several buildings. However, they had every amenity including air conditioning, blow dryers, large bathrooms and everything seemed to be updated and modern. We were only there 1 night but would not hesitate to return. It's in very close walking distance to everything and the Italian Restaurant next door was outstanding!

Perfect location! Close to Trinity College, the tour pick up spot, Grafton Street, St Stevens etc. Excellent breakfast and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The Italian restaurant next door is wonderful too.

This hotel is located just off the Trinity College, one block from the shopping areas but on a small side street not affected by traffic. Looks like an old house adapted to an hotel, but the architects did a good job and the hotel is charming and welcoming. The reception is closed at night but they give you electronic keys... More

Avoid Room 16 on the fourth floor. 4 flights of stairs- no lift. Small attic room with very limited clothes storage. And NOISY. Water boiler located in cupboard in bathroom and another appliance/machine located behind or above that started up at 6a.m. Thin walls. Tired linen.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. I believe that you meant room 17, as room 16 is a very large room with 2 king beds and 1 sofa. As explained to a guest before, maybe you had a look at one of our deluxe room while booking and paying for a classic double room - which is smaller but... More

After touring the country, we arrived in Dublin last week to stay in Trinity Lodge for three nights. As previously noted, it has a great location. The sightseeing buses stop just up the street and many sights such as the Book of Kells, St. Stephen’s Green and Grafton Street are within walking distance. When checking in, we found the evening...

I made reservations in October 2013 to stay in Dublin. I asked for two rooms next to each other. The hotel was Trinity Lodge. I selected this because of location. My husband and I were on one floor and our friends on another. The rooms were not bad, but comparing the price to the room was ridiculous.I also asked for... More

The location of the Trinity Lodge is wonderful, especially for visiting Trinity College, Temple Bar, and so on. The room I had was spacious, the bed comfortable, if a little hard, and the bathroom more than adequate. So what could go wrong? Well, I had the impression that the staff were ill-informed about the place they worked and the management... More
