I am writing this review in light of Mr Walls has written. Clearly he was not happy but in all fairness he was in the wrong. There isnt any establishment that would be happy with his actions. Mr Tuthill has always been proud to serve all patrons with a smile. He encourages good service all the time with all staff.... More

I rarely speak negatively of an establishment as peoples livelihood depends on good custom. However, I was treated so badly today at the Central Hotel in Exchequer Street, Dublin, Ireland by Mr. Tuttelhill (who said he was the owner) that I feel compelled to write a review. My friend and I were in a meeting in the hotel and could... More

Last year I stayed in a B&B called Inn on the Liffey which I wasn't very happy with. So this year I decided I wanted a 'proper' hotel - at a good price of course! The Central Hotel fit the bill on the internet and it fit the bill in person too. This is a modest but clean hotel right... More

The location was almost perfect and the staff was friendly and helpful. They were able to get our room made up early for a needed nap after a long flight. We had a triple and it was comfortable and good size. The night club below was a bit noisy but it didn't keep us awake either night we stayed. I... More

We stayed here two nights while touring Ireland. We enjoyed this hotel - the location is very good, the staff was helpful! The rooms were good size, which is different than most of the places we stayed! I would highly recommend this hotel - a plus is the Library Bar, which is pretty cool. The hotel seemed like a good...

Really nice hotel. Taste of old Dublin. Staff very friendly, library bar is fantastic place to get away from busy Dublin streets. Fantastic location. Wifi decent strength. But the rooms are too small. We had a twin room. Huge wardrobe, sort of walk in thing made movement restricted so I never would have bothered trying to get the clothes into... More

Not so good bits - room is small to the pont where i couldn't swing a cat unless it was a kitten with a growing disorder. Room has very little ventilation - if you want air there is a small window overlooking... More
