Don't go there

Unless you are determined to stay right in the centre if temple bar. That is the hotels only redeeming feature. Olld and tired. Room service was slack with missing cutlery and crockery and an extra breakfast that we didn't order. Reception staff were charming but also slack as they forgot to take credit card details. Upon arrival so we ended up paying each time we ordered. Buskers bar was fun with great musicians, but you don't need to stay in the hotel for that. There are lots of other good hotels.. Look around!

Poor Customer Service, Deceptive costs

I booked a room for August 28th 2014. 13 months in advance. Temple Bar has charged me the full amount in advance. This was not made clear on the reservation. While making the reservation the reservation stated must be cancelled within 48 hours of arrival or 1 nights stay charged. Well they charged my entire stay of $1300 13 months in advance. This was a surprise to me. I contacted reservations who said not only do they charge in advance for this rate but it is non-refundable. I explain this wasnt clear, stating that it clearly says I can cancel within 48 hours. A manager contacts me back and says, sorry that is the policy. So they have taken $1300 from me 13 months in advance of a stay and wont let me cancel it. Very misleading booking practice. Very inconsiderate management. Would you want to stay at a hotel that treats their customers like this? Not good customer service. Horrible management. Stay away or risk being swindled.

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 !!

Great location but very, very noisy!

Location was great however. We got the wrong room - requested non-smoking got a stinky smoking room which made all our clothes and us smell of stale smoke. We were not impressed! Breakfast was limited and they did not keep the items topped up. I gave up on the hot buffet as there was nothing on my first visit and when the topped it up it was all snapped up very quickly to leave it empty again by the time I got back to the buffet. I wouldn't pay for the breakfast. Loads of other options available nearby.

Ireland at last

So so hotel. Came with a complimentary breakfast, we ate breakfast out every day. If we had a problem with the room they fixed it right away, but if your in another country you only need a place to lay your head.

Perfect, would recommend

This hotel was perfect for our first stay in Dublin. It was easy to get too from the airport, just catch one of the shuttle buses and get off at trinity college (about 30-35 mins). The Hotel is about as central as you could possibly wish for and surrounded by bars and places to eat, as well as a tesco metro opposite if you want to grab something quick. The staff were friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable.

Great Location for price

Hotel in great location. basic no frills right in heart of entertainment area. Staff very friendly and helpful.However very disappointed with room maybe because requested smoking room but had to be worst room in hotel. Faced brick wall on one side and generators on the other. Very noisy because of clubbers leaving club next door. Expected that but didn't expect to be woken up by laundry collection and beer delivery which involved metal cages and beer barrels being rolled on pavement right outside our window from 6am on. Also other rooms on floor being revamped. However, hotel were brilliant when we complained and moved us to a much better room on 4th floor which was much nicer and enabled us to enjoy our break even if the smoker did have to go outside to have a cigarette.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Grogarty's Bar is a must for an authentic taste of Ireland (food and entertainment) but make sure you go up to the second floor.We enjoyed fantastic display of Irish dancing and great music. Also diner directly opposite hotel (American Thunder?) fantastic service and great food in great atmosphere. Definitely check out the Leprechaun Museum for a fun hour out.

Nice Hotel Great location for nightlife but Loud

This was a very nice hotel and seemed well priced. The rooms look new and trendy and the location is right next to a lot of bars and restaurants. This is great if you want to go out and enjoy the night life but the windows in our room let in a lot of noise from outside so sleeping before our early morning flight on Saturday morning was very difficult.
