Really pleased with our stay here. Welcomed at reception, very quick check in. Room was clean,warm,a and the shower was AMAZING - the best hotel shower ive had in ages!!!! they also managed to get our car in thier car park so we had free parking for the duration of our stay - and they were quite happy for it to stay in the car park for a few hours after check out time on our last day. The hotel has a bus stop literally outside its front door for one of the sight seeing bus companies that take you all around the main attractions in Dublin. We could here some noise (not very loud really but there) in our room from the dance evenings they put on but it was finished by 10:30pm so had no effect on us. Would stay there again without hesitation.

We specifically choose this hotel because it was not in the middle of the Temple Bar area. I booked my stay through Expedia, which I had never done before. The stay was prepaid but I had no problems with the check in.

The room was adequate, since we didn't spend my time in it other than sleeping. Our view was on the back side of the hotel and faced rooftops. Though there wasn't a view, I was glad to be on this side of the hotel becuase it meant we were not above the hotel bar area. We had no problems with noise at all.

The front desk people were very nice. While we were there in early August there was a bus strike and the front desk recommended another inexpensive option for us to get to the airport for our flight home which we appreciated.

i would guess the hotel is about a mile from the Temple Bar area, but my husband and I are active and enjoy strolling the streets. There are many restaurants and pubs in the area as well. overall a very nice stay.

We booked an overnight stay in named hotel it was a spare of the moment decision to go and so glad we picked this hotel not only for the ideal location being at the end of O'Connell st, and at the foot of the half penny bridge taking you over to Temple Bar ( I have walking disabilities so when I say everything within walking distance I do mean that). the room was extremely spacious, excellant large comfortable bed and everything spotless. we had the breakfast special at around 12 noon on the Sunday as we had booked room only it cost 10 euro including tea or coffee worth every penny great value beautifully presented cooked to perfection may I say the staff including Bar,Reception, housekeeping and the lads who help you in at the car park are really lovely. we stayed in room 119 and shall be making it a regular trip.

Room Tip: from what I could see all rooms are good.

I found the Arlington to be at great location, easy to access the tourist spots as well as shopping, the rooms were nice and quiet with good Wi-Fi access and the staff pleasant. I also liked the Christmas ambience in the foyer and enjoyed a meal in the bar.

Just back from a weekend in Dublin. We booked for the 3 course dinner and show on Saturday night. The music and dancing was top class...brilliant!! The food was good and to begin the service was great. Untill it got busier and then service seemed to stop. We waited over an hour for our drinks order to arrive and the people next to us the same between their starter and main. Shame about the appalling service as the music and dancing was so good!!
