Stayed here for one night, great location. Got one of the rooms at the rear at the hotel. There wasn't a great view, I was facing a wall. It was originally a twin room with the two beds pushed together to make a double, meaning the light swith an the electrical was right behind the pillow which wasn't ideal. Everything in the roo worked, even though was a little dated. The bathroom was small but the water presse and temperature was good in the shower. Cleanliness could be addressed as there was a long hair in the bath and it wasn't mine. There was also lipstick on the back of the bathroom door. The room temperature was nice and cosey. There was an added bonus of having a safe in the room.

Decided to spend our last night here with dinner and a show. Booked early, and arrived way early. We had a seat next door at the bar and enjoyed drinks while we waited for the 7 pm dinner reservation. The food was good, a good crowd around us, and the music was not to be missed. Three musicians, banjo and guitar, and a pretty fiddle player kept us entertained. Be prepared to interact with them, they draw the crowd in to the show! The dancers were excellent, and we had over two hours of entertainment. Well worth a trip to check it out.

Excellent location.Had room 306, never heard a thing from the bar below.Room very nice although window view was of a dirty ally, it offered us the quiet we needed.Staff were wonderful, breakfast excellent & easy walking distance to Temple Bar area, O'Connell and Grafton streets.
There's an Air Link stop right outside of bar. Take Air Link and not Air Coach if going to hotel.

Room Tip: Email them and request a room highest/furthest from bar noise. Book it direct from hotel website and...

The atmosphere is IRISH indeed!!!
The music and dancing are pretty good and the beer is excellent!!!
Good location - accessible by bus or taxi - there are lots of them!
The service is quick and the place is really clean!
Very good if you want to taste the Irish Guiness in its very habitat!

Me and my partner stayed at the Arlington for 3 nights in early Jan and it was a nice hotel but in an excellent location. The rooms were nice and the food downstairs at the legends bar was excellent and really well priced (both breakfast and dinner... 20euro each for a 3 course meal). Service was great, the only thing was we had a hotel room on the corner of the building and it was very loud. Not unbearable though and you get that sometimes with the room you are given. The location was excellent though, hop on hop off bus stop right out the front, plenty of bars and resteraunts around and many of the attractions within walking distance as well.

Me and my mum came to stay at your hotel in october as part of my 18th birthday and I don't have a bad word to say about this hotel, was clean, great staff, good food, brilliant location. Was good enough that I've just booked to go again in the spring, if your thinking about it then go for it.

We called in here for a meal and to see a show after we were given a leaflet when we walked passed. Normally, I dont take leaflets off people but I am so glad I did because the food was exceptional and the show was superb, they had a group of Irish dancers and an traditional Irish band. The evening was great with great staff who couldnt do enough to look after you.
We will definately be visiting and maybe even stop there next time we visit !!!
