Right in the middle of things

Really couldn't have chosen a better hotel if we'd tried! We like to be in the centre of things as don't like to walk too far. Just around the corner from O'Connell St where we found the bus stop for Hop On Hop Off Bus and Maccy Dees for breakfast. Sorted!! The evening dinner and show was really good. The Irish band was amazing and the dancers - well they were just fab. Good place to stay, not the most modern of decors but value for money in a pricey city.

Very central position

Overall this hotel was good, apart from the dust on furniture. But when I pointed it out to the housekeeper it was corrected immediately. Great location for a break in Dublin, very central and easy to get around. There is limited parking on site and I was lucky to get one of the spaces there as I had not booked prior. I would recommend the hotel, the staff are very friendly and willing to please. The beds are clean and fresh, "superhot" hot water in bathroom, if fact everything you need for a short break away.

Absolutely Fantastic Hotel

Hotel is just off O'Connell Street, it's very close to Temple Bar/ St Stephen's Green/ etc so a perfect location. Large room was spotless and bed was massive and incredibly comfortable. Staff couldn't do enough for us, very friendly and knowledgeable of Dublin venues and what's happening. Buffet style all you can eat breakfast is a bargain at only 10 euro a head, you won't be disappointed. We're already looking forward to our next trip to Dublin in March and will definitely be booking Arlington Hotel O'Connell Bridge again.

All you need

Loved it. Fabulous value. Booked the dinner & show which was wonderful! Everyone was clapping & cheering & it really put you in holiday mode. I would definately recommend the hop-on hop-off Dublin bus as it picked you up at the airport & also did the return run. It then does tours with 24 stops all around Dublin & picks up & drops off right outside the hotel. I recommend considering booking breakfast as it is well worth it & very good value.

Location location location!

Had a great stay in Dublin was up for shopping and a concert in the O2. Location is right next to O'Connell street so is perfect while shopping if u want to go drop bags off in the room:) O2 is about 20 minute walk but was perfect for us as it was a lovely day for it otherwise a taxi would have got you there in 5 minutes:) I stayed here on 2 separate occasions. The first time we stayed in the front of the hotel which is the older part no lift and rooms are a but dated but still lovely and clean . The second time we stayed in the back which was way nicer and had a lift:) the bar on the hotel is brilliant Craic and food is lovely especially the chicken wings;) Only negative from me would be the service in the bar is a bit slow ! But all in all a great place to stay and great price rooms:)

Quick Trip to Dublin

I loved this hotel. The size of the bed was enormous, I got quite lost. The proximity to all the sites of Dublin was perfect and the floorshow in the evening was excellent.
