This hotel is perfectly situated right in the heart of the city & close by the river. The room we had was clean & generally well equipped. (Have to say we could hear the people next door & also there was a shortage of tea/coffee in the room.) This however is a minor niggle & overall the hotel represented very good value. On the second night we had a superb 3 course meal downstairs & watched the Irish band & Irish dancers. I'd say this is a must if you're staying at this hotel & certainly rounded off our first ever trip to the wonderful city of Dublin. Breakfasts are excellent & the service from the very friendly staff helped to make this a great stay.

It was our first night after a flight from the US and then all day touring in Dublin. The hotel was fine - but not where I would stay again. We got a room that overlooked an alley that had what looked to be the doors to another bar next door - lots of noise from there and the music from the dinner show on the first floor wafted up to our room as well. The bed was not exactly comfy - but not horrible. The bathroom was ok - but the tub/shower combo was so slippery without a bath mat that it was dangerous. It was clean but could use a little updating. Spacious room for Europe. Internet was really spotty everywhere but in the hotel lobby. Not sure how much it cost- as this was booked as part of a package. They held our luggage for us all day while we were out touring, all went smoothly with that.

Breakfast in the morning was more than ample and there was both hot and cold dishes to choose from. Two weeks later we returned and stayed elsewhere, but went to the dinner show. That food was very marginal, but the band was quite good and the dancers were fine. The service for our table was not that good once she knew we were not ordering alcohol.... :(

Room Tip: Second floor you can still hear the music from the dinner show on the ground level - might try higher up if you are sensitive to noise.

very friendly staff on checking in,even though they were very busy. the room was basic but clean and comfortable. my request for extra pillows was immediately acted on. our window looked out on a back yard but no problem for one night. the hotel is very central and is always buzzing. i was a little worried when i returned as there was music and the bar was very packed.no need to worry,it soon quietened down and i enjoyed a comfortable and peaceful nights sleep. the breakfast was very good, indeed better than many i have had in superior hotels.
although in need of refurbishment,the arlington offers good value for money in a superb location .

first time in Dublin, what a fantastic hotel, we took our mum back to her roots for her 80th birthday and stayed in a 4 bed room which was huge, the staff couldn't do more if you asked them to, breakfast was fantastic, unfortunately i had my purse stolen the first night, by pick pockets, the hotel night staff was fantastic ringing the police and helping me to cancel my cards while supplying plenty of tea and sympathy. will defiantly be going back to this hotel in the future. and would not hasten to recommend to anyone going to Dublin in the near future. word of warning be careful going over hapenny bridge, as there is not cctv on it and its where i was robbed.

Small room but does the exact job you need it to! I absolutely loved the location of this hotel! I seemed to have lost my sense of direction in Ireland & staying here you're within a 2 minutes walk to everything & still know how to get to your bed!!
