The Marlin Hotel is in a fantastic location. A perfect base for exploring the city. The rooms are spotless with comfortable beds. The staff were courteous and helpful. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the bedroom. That's my only criticism. I would gladly stay here again.

Having stayed in a few neighbouring accommodations in the past, those were booked up and I came across Marlin Hotel with a feasible last-minute price. I was a solo traveler staying for 2 nights for pleasure. Despite my late arrival (around midnight) I was welcomed by warm and professional staff. The 24 hour service is very welcome and its location near St. Stephen's Green was ideal for the bus direct from the airport. The aesthetics even in the lobby was very beautiful and clean. The room was even better. The bed was large and comfy, the shower had great pressure and temperature control, and the room was clean and homey. I utilized the gym which was sufficient for a regular gym-goer.
The staff were stellar, everyone made me feel welcome with their hellos and advice about the city. I have to give special shoutout to Andy who welcomed everyone as if they're a friend. He noticed my trainers and we had a great chat about great areas to run in the city.

I stayed at the Marlin hotel for a birthday treat, the whole experience was great. We were greeted by a lovely friendly irish chap as soon as we got to the hotel who gave us lots of tips for our short stay. When we opened our room door we were presented with a bright, clean and brilliant bedroom, the bed was so comfy we even sacrificed an evening in Temple bar!!

Can’t say enough about my stay at The Marlin Hotel. They’ve clearly worked hard to make this place really comfortable and welcoming. A really great modern feel, and excellent lobby design and awesome bar. (Shadily the best pint of Guinness I had in the entire city - no joke.)

The staff is top notch. Honestly I’ve never experienced hotel staff like this, kind, friendly and they remember your name.

Rooms are cozy while not extravagant, but exactly what you need in a city where you should be spending as little time in your room as possible. Every amenity you could need is promptly delivered.

Location is prime. Close enough to all the action to be right where you want to be, while also being on a secluded street if you’re looking for some quiet and privacy.

You’ll be pleased with your choice. Don’t think twice, book it.
