We were expecting a 3 stars hotel and the famous (and true) Irish kindness but we arrived in a room with a bad smell, no plugs, very old TV, no remote, uncomfortable bed, and REALLY noisy ! The hotel is in front of bars and really close to Temple bar so without double glazing we couldn't sleep .. The staff,... More

So I was out on a nice night out and when I was heading home we decided to have one last drink in the mercantile. We ended up having about 5 more drinks, the atmosphere was brilliant, the music was so good that every time we went to leave another great song came on, so we did the only sensible... More

Typical pub, food and service are quite ok. In the city centre, not far from Trinity College. International service personnel, the pub has three floors and there is a lot of space for bigger groups. We had a tomato basil bruscetta as a starter, turkey with cranberry sauce as a main and lemon tarte for dessert.

The location is superb, for anyone wanting to be able to get out in the city center area and stumble home. But, it's right on a main street full of popular pubs, and there is an alley out back where patrons hang out as well (so not much opportunity to get a room on the "quiet" side of the hotel)....

Obviously a bit of an older place, but this is the heart of Dublin, Ireland, and we were happy to take in the cultural atmosphere and be close to everything. Yes, the noise level was very high for most of the night, but, again, this was the weekend and the hotel is situated on a street with lots of pubs.... More

Right from the day I phoned to book this place it was a nightmare. They cannot take a booking properly. Food awful service awful and then had the cheek to put a service charge on the bill. Didn't pay it and won't be back.

I stayed in the Mercantile Hotel for just two nights so I could be close to everything. Well first off my hotel room did not have A/C so I had to keep the window open and my room overlooked an alley. First impression is the room is very run down but it was a clean bed and a nice clean... More

Even though the hotel kindly, by request, placed us in one of their quietest rooms (back, top floor), the noise from Temple Bar/ Dame Street was intolerable all night. We did not sleep. Scruffy little place, overpriced, but the only major problem was the noise.

Business lunch for 2 - very good service & enjoyable lunch. We sat outside to drink our tea - enjoy the world go by. Recommend a visit - try the window table 1st & then go outside. Located opposite Central Bank building & easy availability of taxi if required.
