Not impressed at all with this b&b. They told us that our room would be ready for 1 o' clock and when we arrived at half 2 the room was still not ready. Staff were nice on arrival and did apologise. We paid nearly €250 for a twin room for one night excluding breakfast which was a complete rip off... More

I stayed at Waterloo Lodge while attending a conference at the nearby Hilton. The location was near perfect. It is fairly near St Stephen's Green and well-placed for the majority of Dublin's southside. However, the hotel itself was only average. Frequently, messages were not passed from one member of staff to another - leading to a special arrangement for breakfast... More

Stayed in the Waterloo Lodge from the 1st of April to the 3rd of April. Great Bed and Breakfast. Friendly Staff. Lovely cooked breakfast and wide array of continental choice. The Hotel is in a fab location with the bus directly outside taking you straight into the city. Hotel was also very clean and there was no restrictions on times... More

Stayed here for 29 hours after arriving in Dublin at 0500. Given access to the three bed family room at 0630 the first day, and had a decent breakfast after a quick nap. Grocery, hardware, and ATM all less than five minutes walk. Staff were friendly, the room was clean, and the Aircoach bus stop was a seven minute walk.... More

Good location. Easy to find and helpful that you can precook parking with a room. Beautiful room, clean, comfortable and in a lovely building. Staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was great. Would recommend to anyone and stay again if we visit Dublin again.

Stayed here with two friends for the England v ireland game. The good parts are we had a spacious room with a good bathroom power shower. Bed and towels were replaced overnight and walkable into the centre of Dublin. On the flip side we payed 360 euro for 2 nights for 3 people. There were loads of hotels closer to... More

We stayed here for two nights as a stop and rest after a long flight from South America On arrival the atmosphere was cold and unwelcoming! The rooms were clean and bedding comfortable, but I found the triple room small, for the price it's bb sizes with hotel prices. Hmmm going to breakfast was the most uncomfortable experience we had...

Stayed here for the last couple of nights in a group of 3 couples, really enjoyed it and would stay here again. It's not exactly modern or fancy, but it's clean and very comfortable and the staff were nice. The location was good, walking distance to some great bars and shops, and a reasonable walk into the centre and Temple... More
