Ideal stay

This hotel is an absolute gem in the centre of Dublin. If you want value for money, personable friendly attention and clean well appointed rooms this is a must. We cannot speak too highly of a wonderful short break in Dublin made even more so by the staff at George Frederic Handel.

Close to many Irish pubs

This hotel is in a pretty good location on the outskirts of Temple Bar which means that it doesn't get the late night noise from the pubs but still really close that you dont have to walk far. The hotel is very basic though but I did appreciate that my room had a bath and it has tea and coffee making facilities.

A night on the town

Hotel was in perfect location, room was great but bathroom lacked something and the shower had low pressure. Reception was small and dark when I returned late at night.

Super Stadtnähe - Mängel beim Personal

Das Hotel liegt ausgezeichent zu allen Orten - Bars, Essen oder Sehenswürdigkeiten - die längste Strecke zu Fuss waren 20 Minuten (und das war eine spezielle Bar mit super Musik). Die Zimmer sind grosszügig und gepflegt. Die Bar im selben Block hat nachts gute Musik - aber man darf nicht zu früh ins Bett - denn da tönt die Musik ähnlich laut wie in der Bar. Zum Personal: 1. Ich habe mit Mastercard bezahlt und 3x darauf hingewiesen, dass ich in der Landeswährung zahlen will - am Schluss wars dann trotzdem in CHF, was mich ca. Fr. 80.- mehr gekostet hat. 2. Die Reception war nicht fähig, mir 200 Euro in kleinere Noten zu wechseln. 3. An zwei Tagen wurde ein Zimmer gar nicht gereinigt. 4. Die Bedienung im Frühstücksraum war eher unfreundlich und leicht überfordert - was dann ein Ausgleich zu unseren Gunsten war, da 3 Frühstücke nicht abgerechnet wurden.
