The first five days of my trip to Dublin were on my own, staying at the Arlington. I've now checked into the Doubletree on Upper Leeson Street to join a tour. I'll compare the two hotels. The Arlington is an older, smaller facility. My third floor room was a good size and clean but not luxurious. The bed was a little hard and the linens a little rougher than the Doubletree. No facecloth was provided but I had my own so I didn't ask for one. The towels were plentiful but thin. Noise was a problem. I was at the back and there is pub nearby. Without double glazing I could hear everything. There was no security latch on the door and TV was rather small, maybe 24 inches compared to the Doubletrees 40 plus inches. The Doubletree is much newer and clearly caters to businessmen and the more affluent. The Arlington Hotel can't be beat for location however. Mere feet from O'Connell Street and five minutes to Temple Bar, I walked everywhere. Lots of restaurants and pubs around plus convenience stores and supermarkets. Overall the Arlington Hotel is "average" but I gave it a "very good" for location. Stay here if luxuries are not important and you aren't a light sleeper.
