The Kingfisher Capel Street Apartments
Ranked #113 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We stayed on the top floor 2 bedroom apartment at the end of July, 2013. It was clean and had a big bathroom and well fitted kitchen. Easy walk from the Kingfisher after check-in. They had daily room tidy up which we don't usually get with self catering. It is close to everything but still on a quiet street, quiet enough to sleep with the windows open. The beds could have a little bit more comfortable but good enough for a long weekend and good enough for the price.

DIRTY WALLS, FILTHY FLOOR, COULD HEAR EVERY FOOTSTEP ALL NIGHT FROM ABOVE, FANS GOING ALL NIGHT, BUSTED LOCK ON THE BATHROOM DOOR....just some of the things i came across in apartment no.1!!! My girlfriend and I and another couple attended a concert in Dublin recently. We booked a 2 bed apartment and as advertised on their website expected to find 2 double beds. This was not the case only 1 double bed and 3 single beds in another room. I went to reception to find the most ignorant person i've ever come across working in a hotel. I told him the situation and he just said that i booked through a stupid website and if I wasn't happy cancel my booking and he'd have it rented out again in 10 mins for double the price!!!!! Being 4 o' clock on a Saturday he knew i didn't have any options but to just take what i had as i was only there for 1 night. On top of this the bedroom walls were dirty, the floor was filthy (my girlfriend had to wash her feet twice after coming OUT of the shower!!! and you could also hear every pin drop from above...got no sleep at all with the noise. Would definately never ever stay here again!!

We were disappointed in the amenities at Capel Street Apartments. Also, no one replied to our email expressing our view afterwards. In themselves, each of the issues was quite small. However, when added up, it left us feeling we had received misleading information about the quality of the accommodation. All in all, it had a down-at-heel feel to it and we would not want to book an apartment with this company again. These are the problems we encountered:
- The television did not work at all. We reported this to the office on our second day but nothing was done to fix it.
- The kitchen equipment was of very poor quality (eg. broken lid on saucepan, lack of glasses)
- The sofa bed cover was split
- No lock on the bathroom door
- Not very clean (the window-sills were filthy)
- Towels were frayed
In addition, being in the basement wasn't very pleasant - on the website it says floors 1-5th.

We stayed in number 4 for a long weekend (Fri - Mon) in March. The apartment was nice and spacious but in need of a little bit of love - some of the knobs on the cupboard doors were missing in our bedroom, the seal of the shower had peeled away and there were no shelves in the oven.

Having said that, it was big enough for the four of us (you wouldn't really want any more people) and we had a good time there.

The bathroom was nice and large with fresh towels daily. The toilet flushed every time we used it (which although you're unlikely to admit it, it is important when there's a group of you!) and the water was always nice and hot. The only downside of the bathroom (which was probably a one off) was that there was no soap.

The kitchen was basic as expected, although there were no shelves in the oven - so it was nigh on impossible to cook anything in the oven. There was also no frying pan - so using the hob was pretty tough too unless you want to boil stuff.

As on the outskirts of town I wasn't sure how noisy it'd be - but it was pretty quiet - I don't recall hearing anything outside, or at least nothing more than the usual sounds of being in a town (usual dustbin men, occasional siren - nothing major). The people upstairs were actually the only real noise we noticed (we guessed they were wearing hobnail boots or a bunch of elephants were up there).

The apartment did the job and was pretty comfortable. The beds were standard, there was an abundance of storage which is always good. There were plenty of extra pillows and duvets too. I slept pretty well too.

Our bathroom was soaking for two days from the bathroom above us. I do understand that it can happen. Staff was kind when we called them and they came over to fix the problem. On the second day the same happened. We called reception again and asked for discount. Status was terrible, we could not switch on light since lamp was full of water. It already seemed to be dangerous. Staff promised they give us one night refund. Finally the manager himself told us that they did not give us any refund against their promise. It was a big disappointment!!

This is a good serviced apartment, a few hundred meters from Temple Bar, yet located in a quiet area.

The apartment was clean and well maintained, despite some natural wear signs. It was serviced every day (cleaning, fresh towels, bedroom linen). Check-in/check-out was quick, efficient and friendly, but you must keep in mind it is a 5 minute walk from check-in location to the apartments.

The apartment had 2 small but comfortable bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with 2 beds. The kitchen/living room space had enough amenities and kitchen ware, as well as a large LCD screen (with a small number of international channels, though). The bathroom was renovated and heated.

On the negative side I must mention the lack of safe (even though the area looks safe). You may also hear some noise from other apartments, but not more than in most Hotel rooms.

Overall this is a very comfortable stay for a family with 1-2 small children. It is not an upscale apartment and lacks some "spark" in furnishing and decoration, but everything is comfortable and well appointed.

The price I paid was on pair (or even slightly above) a 3-4 star Hotel room. Nonetheless, this is a competitive price if you are traveling with family and/or intend to prepare some meals.

We stayed at the 2BR apartment on the 5th floor for 4 nights. It is a walk-up so you get your exercise going up and down. The apartment was spacious, with a fully equipped kitchen, washer, and huge bathroom that had a heated floor- a nice bonus.

The location is great. Just a few blocks from several pedestrian shopping streets and maybe 10 minutes walk to temple bar just across the ha'penny bridge. Yet it is relatively quiet at night, save for some occasional traffic or people in the street. The entire city center is within easy walking reach from the apartments.

The service at the Kingfisher (which owns these apartments) is exceptional. Ana Maria was absolutely wonderful, extremely kind and helpful with advice, had the apartment ready for us even though we arrived early, and arranged for Carmen, who also works at the Kingfisher, to babysit our 2 girls. Carmen was very nice and did a great job at a reasonable price.

For 124 euros per night, the value was exceptional. The Kingfisher also has delicious smoked salmon for breakfast at their restaurant 2 blocks away. The Church restaurant closeby has an amazing atmosphere, a converted historic grandiose church. I highly recommend these apartments and the Kingfisher.

Room Tip: Rooms on a higher floor are a little quieter, though there is no elevator/lift.
