My cousin and I (22 and 24 yrs old) were traveling on a budget and wanted to be in a central location to walk everywhere. The Lombard was perfect for us! We got a twin room that actually had three twin beds, a sitting area, spacious bathroom, and a great view out to the street. We stayed Sun-Tues and didn't have any problems with noise. I'm not sure how the noise would be on weekends.
We walked ALL OVER: Trinity College, Grafton Street, and even the Guinness Storeroom and Croke Park (quite far, I know). We enjoyed having a pub right downstairs if we wanted a quick drink. All the bartenders we talked to were friendly and helpful. They even arranged to have a taxi arrive early in the morning so we could catch our train at Heuston.
Some of these reviews seem quite harsh. I will say that this place is not like a hotel. If you know what you're signing up for I think you'll be pleased. You check in at the bar once they open and after that you don't deal with anyone from The Lombard unless you need something. While in Ireland we came to realize the Irish people aren't in as much of a rush and take their time. If they're not at the bar right away, be patient and they WILL help you. We are relatively low-maintenance travelers and were completely satisfied with a clean bed and bathroom. Someone from the cleaning staff would come in, make our beds and replace ours towels everyday while we were out.
The only problem we had was with the wifi. We didn't get great reception in our room, but honestly we were too busy during the day to care.
