CITY BREAK

The best thing was its location, close to the airport bus stop and walking distance from everywhere in the city centre. Next best was the lively music in the ground floor nightly club. However the reception staff were fairly uninvolved with the customers after the first arrival, and there could have been a better lobby lounge facility while waiting for the room to be ready.In the bedroom there were no extra blankets (to replace the duvet) and these had to be requested. Breakfast very varied but too costly at 7.euros.

The Arlington Hotel

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great for the sights we wanted to see. The super large pub with live entertainment was the largest pub we saw in Dublin. Overall this was a excellent bargain.

Great stay!

Perfect location just up from Halfpenny Bridge. Short walk to Temple Bar or City central. Very good breakfast. Free entertainment nightly. Traditional music and Irish dancing. Nice sized bathroom with very hot water. Will stay here next time in Dublin.

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.

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:)

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.

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.
