The hotel was located in an excellent position for exploring Dublin city. It was close to all the restaurant and bars in Temple Bar but was not noisy, apart from a bit of music on Saturday night. Whilst most of the staff were very pleasant, the receptionist who greeted us on arrival was unfriendly and unwelcoming. He seemed to view... More

The hotel, as other reviewers have said, is well situated. Temple Bar is a busy, lively tourist area and this means a plethora of noisy pubs and bars - one of them is right next door to the hotel and on Friday and Satyrday nights the noise continues until 01.00am. That is OK, I suppose if you're young - either... More

I didn't care for the hotel. the location was good, next to the temple bar area, but I didn't want to stay one day longer. Room was outdated. Cracks in the bathroom. linnen was old fashioned. Don't recommend you go there. Service at the front desk was not that friendly. Last day a manager helped me get a taxi, but... More

The hotel has undergone major renovations before being reopened around 10 weeks before our stay in mid July. The hotel is located close to Christ Church Cathedral opposite of the City Counsil. The temple bar district is a five minute walk away. There is a parking garage nearby for which you receive a rebate, if you stay at the hotel.... More

Our three bed room was spacious as well as spotless!. Nice colours, flat screen tv. Bathroom clean and spacious as well. The full irish breakfast was tasty as well as the continental one. Staff was friendly and helpful. Right in the Temple Bar area. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel when we were over to see Take That. We usually stay at the hotel next door, but there was a mix up with our booking, so they got us a room at the George Frederic Handel Hotel. Well, the staff were brilliant, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Although it was... More

This hotel has only recently reopened and many of the staff seem to be new and under training,but they are friendly enough. There is also still some renovation work being carried out. I stayed twice in one week as a solo traveller and the hotel fitted the bill for me perfectly. It is clean,cheap and central. Nothing special, but good... More

There is a reason why Handel is so cheap for the location, which is the only good thing about this hotel. There was no WiFi in the hotel like adverdised, after booking came e-mail were they told this. Lift didn´t work for 2 first days, so you had climb to 4th floor with heavy luggage. There was no warm water... More
