Overall OK

Overall, the hotel was good value for the price. The location was excellent. The lobby was very nice. The room, on the other hand, was just ok. The room was small, but definitely dated. It just seemed old. Definitely good enough for a single traveler, but not good ideal for a family or multiple people.

A small room

The People were very good...but when get into room a box. If you want a very simple place this is it. Easy access to everything within walking distance. Airport Bus drop off is close to hotel.. Other then a small room my box spring was on rollers one broke when they replaced it was longer and on floor which i was about a 9 inches lower against night stand.... A simple room but right on main strip.

Excellent location

Temple Bar Hotel accurately bills itself as Dublin's most centrally located hotel. The location is great for tourists looking to walk around and explore the city. The downstairs lobby is very nice, though the rooms themselves are fairly average.

Great Location!

Centrally located which made for a good trip. It is a bit loud at night and the rooms are a bit small, nothing special. The staff was amazing, they helped in every way they could.

Dissapointing

We had to move from our initial room to the general state of it. It was dirty. The second room was marginally better but the cleanliness was still not what one would expect irrespective of price of room. The rating card in the entitled "tell us what you think" had been left completed by a previous guest. This suggests no attention to detail. Definitely not good value for money. Travelodge do it better than this !!

Could have been better

The location was excellent, right on the edge of Temple Bar. It was a bit noisy, but worth it. The lobby is beautiful. The staff is wonderful and personable. The rooms look like they were last updated in the 1950s. A king bed is 2 twin beds pushed together and one of mine was broken and the shower curtain was stained. The heat turns off with the electricity when you take your key to leave the room so it can be quite cold in the evenings. I paid the extra €8 for breakfast and ended up with hard, rubbery eggs, bread (no toaster), and ham. When I asked for tea they gave me a pot of burnt coffee.
