I was very disappointed in the merchant house. I had booked it online and it was in the hotels section, listed as a boutique hotel. This is very misleading as it is a guesthouse. You are essentially renting a room in a house. There is no reception and no facilities.
The location is in the heart of temple bar. It was very noisy at night and difficult to sleep.
Our breakfast was in a cafe down the road, the stage door, but they did not understand the terms gluten free or coeliac so I didn't have anything to eat.
There were long black hairs on the lockers which put me off and the carpet is that hard wearing stuff they put in schools, really rough on your feet.
Somebody has gone mad with a label maker and labelled literally everything in the room!
Overall I felt it had been miss sold and didn't live up to my expectations.
