Needed a place that was accessible for mobility impaired. The Waterloo meets that requirement in spirit but not always the letter. Entry was gained by going down a ramp and waiting for someone to go inside, downstairs, and walk around and open the door. Room access still required navigating a small staircase, and the rail was only screwed into plaster... More

Stayed here on a business trip and although it did everything I needed it to, it offers little else. A large but dated decor, doesn't accept AMEX, and not a lot of charm to the place. Nothing to make make me mark it down, but nothing to make my mark it up either.

I love this location, away front the tourist crowded city center but within a short walking distance to grafton st. The Neighborhood is very cute with a nice collection of small restaurants and quaint pubs. I felt no need to stray far for anything. The rooms are clean, the facilities are professionally run, and the staff are exceptionally helpful. It... More

Excellent accommodations with very friendly and helpful staff. Within comfortable walking distance of good food and drink and not much longer for shopping, St. Stephen’s Green and Trinity College. I highly recommend this property.

Our room was beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. Everything was in working order. Breakfast was outstanding! A nice buffet of cold cuts, cheese, bread, yogurt, cereal, prunes, cakes, fruit... A full Irish breakfast cooked fresh upon order. They also offered waffles and french toast. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Dublin center is an easy 15-20 minute walk. We would definitely... More

We stayed in Room 22, which is a huge room on the ground floor with a huge comfortable bed and an open fire which would be lovely in the colder months. It was easily €100 cheaper than other accommodation and I can't see how an extra €100 would have provided a more positive experience. The room had a small well... More

NIce hotel in a great location, rooms are small but very nice. Breakfast was excellent as were the morning staff. My only recommendation would be a better late check in process. I arrived at 11pm ish (so not too late) and was handed a key and pointed to my room, and with no hotel information in the room, it was... More

Waterloo House was a terrific place to stay upon our arrival to Dublin. Transportation from the airport via the Aircoach bus was simple, left us off an easy two block walk to our lodging. The hotel has comfortable rooms with good beds, and a delicious and generous full breakfast. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is... More
