There was a safe in the room, but the instructions did not match the type of safe provided. We had to leave our valuables in the room and whem we returnes from dinner we found our wallet - containting our passports - were stolen.

The staff was not very helpfull in figuring out what to to do in this emergency.

If you're planning to stay there, beware of your valuables.

We stayed for only 3 nites but the place was great! The room was wonderful and each room is decorated with a theme so they are each unique. I had no problem at all with noize from outside, though I could hear other guests in the hallway in the morning. The staff was super nice and the free breakfast was great and filling. The hotel is in walking distance from everything. And the price is great!

I have stayed at the townhouse before and always found it to be a charming and friendly hotel. It is very close to the City Centre with very nice, clean en-suite rooms for a very reasonable cost. We stayed there before the Dublin Marathon and the hotel went to such lengths to ensure we were all happy - there was an early breakfast laid on and even better showers and hot soup for all competitors afterwards.
The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and I would very much recommend people to come and stay here. It is possible that this hotel will be sold soon and I hope that the new owners will give it as much care and attention as the current owners.

We had a lovely stay at the Townhouse. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful with directions, bus schedules, etc. Our room was small, but most of the rooms we've stayed at in Europe have been small -- it was perfectly acceptable however. Bed was very comfy, shower worked fine. The complimentary full irish breakfast every morning was great and a nice bonus to save on dining-out money for the trip. Location was a short walk from the bar area across the river. No complaints and would definitely stay there again!

Do not believe other reviews. The townhouse is not that cheap for the horrible service provided. Rooms are quite average, small and very noisy if you are on the back.

Staff was very rude and did not provide any advices.

We strongly recommend to avoid this place

Our small group stayed at The Townhouse for 4 nights. Using a credit card, I reserved our group rooms by calling the hotel directly. Due to our group size, my credit card was charged for the full stay prior to our check-in. I was told that this was the hotel policy. Fortunately, I was able to resolve this problem with the hotel staff prior to check-out.

Our rooms varied in size. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. No problems with the hot water. Guests staying in rooms facing the side street did experience problems with noise from the nearby pub. Breakfast buffet was great. Breakfast room was a bit crowded around 9:30 so a few guests chose to have breakfast in their rooms.

After checking out, we were able to store our bags at the hotel until our departure for the airport (early evening).

This hotel was a great value. Although we did experience some minor problems, we still enjoyed our stay at The Townhouse.
