5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Perfect central location just off St Stephens green. Lovely little hotel, with free parking, which is a real plus in a city where parking costs an arm and a leg. Room was beautiful and huge, actually more of a suite. Clean, comfortable and affordable. Couldn't ask for any more

Things I liked:
Good location.
Very nice breakfast selection and quality, good value if booked in advance.

Things I disliked:
Room was way too hot and stuffy. Asked for a fan but none were available at the time so we had to sleep in much discomfort for the first night. Having been travelling since 5am, it was unpleasant to find the room was so warm and that no other suggestions to make our stay more pleasurable were made. I had called prior to our stay to ensure my room would have a ceiling fan, though on arrival, nobody seemed to know if any of the rooms had a ceiling fan! With that said, the ceiling fan was useless, must be for decoration.
I feel my stay would have been made better if the staff were more approachable at reception. Also feel they could have done more to help, we were not happy the day we arrived or the following morning. I have stayed in many 4* hotels and the hotel could raise their standards.
Slept with window wide open so was very noisy got woken up several times during the night. Especially bad as the Football world cup was on.
Hair dryers did not work, went through 3.

Room Tip: If you are going in the Summer, make sure you request a fan to be put into your room. Request a qui...

Stay here with my sister for a theatre trip to Dublin recently. Hotel was ideally located for Gaiety Theatre that night and shopping on Grafton Street the next day, both only a short walk away, no need for taxis. Also very near St Stephen Green Park, we have lovely weather that week so we sat and soaked up the sun for a few hours, certainly didn't feel like we were in the City centre! Our room was spotlessly clean, good size. It had been recently painted. Thankfully we were allocated a room at the back, as there are nightclubs all along the street. They finish around 2am, but if you are at the front of the hotel you would definitely hear the revellers coming and going. The Luas pass right by the door, but the stop is further up the street. Very reasonable price for a hotel room with breakfast included for a midweek stay in Dublin. Beautiful sittingroom we didn't get to use, this would be very comfortable in winter or for a tired traveller needing to recharge.

Very surprised to have a room in the basement. We did not know that hotels existed where guests have to sleep in the basement having to listen to people walking past on the street above their heads. Very disappointing, esp considering the high price!

I was excited to be staying at a historic location for such a great price in a perfect location. However, upon arrival you could tell the host was less than enthusiastic to receive us.

My sister and I decided to share a room which was comfortable and well furnished.
Each room comes with only 1 key which you must return to the check-in desk every time you need to leave.

Our room was in the "basement," one floor below the lobby. There were only 4 - 5 rooms other than ours on our floor. One evening my sister had accidentally left the key in the door until the morning when we realized what she had done. We checked the door and the key wasn't there.

At 6 am we checked with the lobby to see if the had it. I asked him if he had our key or has seen it? The man was very condescending asking us - "Did you or didn't you leave it in the door? You know you're not supposed to do this. We can charge you 40€ for the lost key." He went on and on despite the fact that we were aware of the charges and potential effects of our oversight.

After his speech I asked him again if he had it.
He again brought up the charge of 40€ implying that he would charge us.
I asked once more - "Do you have it or not?"
He did in fact have it the entire time.

I found his behaviour extremely unnecessary. The fact that we had to go lock our door only to leave the key with this man made me feel very uneasy. I didn't trust him nor did I feel as though our belongings were safe in the room.

This hotel should train their staff to be more attentive and learn how to treat their guests with kindness and respect - even during oversights - rather than threaten them with fees condescendingly. The staff's job is to make us feel welcome and comfortable - I felt quite the opposite at Harrington Hall.

Thank you for the feed back . It would have been nice to follow this up as the response of the staff member was not appropriate. However it is a long time since October 2013 and now unfortunately we can not identify the person in question.

We stayed for 5 days in Dublin and loved the location. Thomas , one of the staff, made our stay so comfortable. He helped with all our needs... The sister hotel 2 doors down has a lovely area with a fireplace you can go sit and have a glass of wine in the evening. Our room was large and very quiet.

The hotel itself is great. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, it's in a very good location, and it offers free parking. But, the noise at night is awful. There are several nightclubs across the street that go well in to the morning hours. The thump-thump-thump of the music is bad enough but add to it screaming girls one night, and car horns the second night, and you end up with very little sleep. There isn't much the hotel can do about the night club noise but, it definitely should have a large supply of ear plugs for it's guest. Either in the room or at the front desk. Not having a supply is somewhat inexcusable in my opinion and shows a lack of concern for its guests.
