Stayed here as a group of 3 girls for a weekend, allocated room 416. Expected one room with a double and single bed in it, walked in to a huge suite, with a separate bedroom, seating area with couch, table & chairs. Even on the top floor we could hear the street noise but not enough to keep us awake.... More

The hotel is smack bang in the middle of everything, bars restaurants, shops, takeaways etc so location is excellent. Reception area is quite dark, but nice and staff are efficient. We had room 215 which is on the corner of the hotel so we had windows at the side as well as the front, It was obviously quite a grand... More

I was really disappointed with our stay at the Central Hotel for 4 nights. You cannot beat the location and the service was nice as well but that is about it. There were no overhead lights in the rooms, no toiletries, place looked quite dingy and shelves were falling off the walls. I expect more when paying roughly £100/night. The... More

Nice place to stay, the rooms are quite dark, though. The hotel in the city center, so the location is perfect. A great asset is the Library bar on the first floor, higly recommended! The staff could be friendlier, breakfasts were ok.

Was greeted by the lovely Isabella on arrival at reception who could not have been more helpful. Hotel is located right in the heart of dublin City centre only a short stroll away from grafton street. Will definitely be back hopefully sooner rather than later....

Great hotel and a fabulous stay. However, there is no drop off point near the hotel. I arrived in darkness on a rainy night and wanted to drop off my wife and the luggage. I pulled into what I thought was a drop off point only to find the next day during daylight hours that I had driven through a... More

The hotel was decent, but there was quite a bit of street noise. Good location within walking distance of many restaurants and attractions. It had a very old-fashioned feel to it which was good for a stay in Europe.

The hotel is very charming with a wonderful hotel bar. The room was comfy and the breakfast was fine (was not included). The hotel is situated in the city centre within walking distance to many central places. The hotel is at the end of a pedestrian street and there are more than enough restaurants, pubs and cafés only a few... More

The hotel is situated perfectly for the those looking to shop in Grafton street, although the hotel is situated perfectly for happy shoppers! The hotel is very out dated and needs a revamp, but it's clean and basic and the rooms are modernised a little, the windows are not sound proof I could here the fans outside all night!! So... More

The hotel is right in the middle of everything,so convenient.Lovely clean rooms and the bar is very atmospheric.This time we were in the attic rooms which were small.As we stayed on a Sunday night the room was cheap for the city centre.
