“Good hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

The location is central, the room was modern and what you would expect from a decent hotel, not large but more than adequate. Breakfast was good value and plentiful. Next time in Dublin I will probably book somewhere near St Stevens Green though, just to be closer to the South William Street area where there are more restaurant options nearby. A bit plus is that the room really was quiet as advertised, this was really my main concern.

I spent only one night at the Trinity, in the middle of Dublin with an excellent location for getting around. The decor is not really what I would choose (a bit over the top), but I must say the bed was absolutely comfortable and the linen thick and crisp. Good toiletries and very good breakfast, lots of options, either continental or Irish breakfast. A good experience, in all.

A short walk to Temple Bar and other downtown landmarks, this beautifully decorated hotel is worth a visit. Good service and very nice breakfast buffet. Rooms are spacious and free wifi always nice, although quite common nowadays.

We stayed here last july and stayed here again this july.The lobby and bar areas are great but missing the large budhas they had before(where have they gone?),Likewise breakfast was fine to.Still an issue and something I commented on last year is that the room was far to warm.Last year it was in the 70's but this year even though it was a lot cooler outside the room was still stuffy and hot.I know some rooms do have air conditioning but I don't know why the room should be so warm when outside its quite a pleasant temperature.When we arrived there was a toenail on the floor by the bed left by a previous guest.The next day we went out about about 10.30am and got back about 3pm.The room hadn't been done so we went to the bar for about 40 mins.came up again and the room was being cleaned so we waited 10 mins for the room to be done and got in about 4pm.The next day we went out about 10am got back about 3.15 and again the room hadn't been done and as we wanted a break before going out we had to forgo having the room cleaned.I found this unacceptable as I think we gave plenty of time to have the room done,the service room sign was on the door and hotels should realise that we do spend some time in the room and not use it just for sleeping.Overall disappointing.

Hi padsmcginty,

Thank you very much for your review following your stay with us.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay but I am disappointed to read your other comments. Firstly, we do at the moment have 100 bedrooms out of 198 bedrooms with A/C and the rest coming on board soon. Lastly, I have also spoken to the accommodation team following your comments.

In the meantime, should you wish to share any other feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the hotel but I hope the experience will not deter you from revisiting us again in the future.

Regards,
Denyse Campbell,
General Manager

They made us wait more than 30 minutes to give us the room. We reserved a room with 2 beds and instead they gave us a suite with just 1 bed and a sofa bed that injured my back.
The room was on the third floor, and no elevators were available.
The hotel pretends to be luxurious but it isn't.
There are much better hotels for less, and even better located.

Bang in the middle of Dublin sharing a wall with a local fire station, the Trinity City Hotel is a great location for exploring the city and getting around. The decor is a little off the wall, a hint of the last third of the film Bettlejuice meets a wannabe steampunk cross-over that's just on the right side of tasteful. Service was grand, food very good but the outstanding thing about this place is the wifi - freely accessible and lightening fast it had no problem streaming HD video for hours on end. As place to park my head for the night on a business trip it done just the job and I'll be choosing to come back here next time I visit Dublin.

The Trinity City Hotel was in a perfect location to the Temple Bar area and other attractions. It was a posh little boutique hotel. The hotel staff during check in were helpful and they allowed us to check in early. We had to catch an early flight the next morning and they provided a fabulous take away breakfast since we left too early. Yes, the room was small but we are in Dublin?!?! A large downfall we didn't have air conditioning. It was a warm June night and our room was very hot. We had to open our window and it overlooked the busy street in front of the hotel. We didn't get any sleep that evening due to the passing cars every 2 minutes. If I stayed again I would get a room with A/C and facing the courtyard.

Room Tip: Get a room with A/C if your staying on a warmer night!
