I booked a stay at the Arlington for me and my boyfriend for his birthday present. After reading some earlier reviews, I was very nervous to arrive at the hotel. However, do not listen to the bad reviews, as I was more than pleased and we had an excellent experience.
A month prior to arrival I requested a quieter room as people had had trouble with noise, this helped as we had no trouble whatsoever. For people who are saying the hotel is 'dated', yes, the bar may be considered so, however this is what you want when in Dublin! The bar is quite dark as it is wood panelled, however this is fab at night when watching the shows. The reception area is much lighter than the bar and offers a lovely welcome. The rooms cannot be considered 'dated' at all; they are light, airy, big and everything else you need from a hotel room!
Breakfast is served between 7;00-10:00am and offers a huge selection. Cereals, fruit, scones, pastries, yoghurt's, toast, juice and a huge choice of cooked breakfast. Tea and coffee is brought to your table and you help yourself to as much or as little as you want/need.
We didn't book the dinner/show, however after returning to the hotel and finding it was still on, we had a drink in the bar and watched it. The band and dancers were great and it really added to our experience of Dublin.
All in all there is nothing at all I could fault about The Arlington, and I would urge everyone to book it. Great price, the best location and a fantastic find!
