What a shocking experience!! So, arriving 2 hours prior to published check in time, our group (3 people with 3 rooms booked) weren't expecting the rooms to be ready but were hoping! Especially as we'd tried to check in at the Arlington on the river and told we were at the wrong Arlington (yes, there are two!!)... Rooms weren't ready and as the rest of our group were booked at Blooms, we agreed to leave our bags there and come back when we'd had lunch. We went back at just before 3pm as our meeting was around the corner at 3, over 2 hours after leaving out bags, to be told our rooms still weren't ready! So we grabbed what we needed and headed back down the road... We went back after 6 when our meeting had finished, we had rooms!
So, my room was large, with two single beds pushed together to make a large double except it was designed as a twin room, the headboards were miles apart and the light switches found somewhere between the pillows! The net curtains were filthy and the hems torn and hanging off! The toilet roll holder was above the cistern, behind me, so I either needed to grab paper first or reach above and behind me!! The carpet was threadbare and stained as well! For €105 per night, excluding breakfast, I wish I chosen elsewhere!!
The breakfast was €9.90 each and paltry! The black and white puddings were the size of two €2 coins stacked on top of each other and the coffee was foul!
All in all, not a great experience of Dublin hostelry, again...
