Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. My only dislike was the shower. I was with my 74 year old mother and the tub/shower was extremely high and very narrow. Once you managed to climb in, you were showering with the shower curtain in your face

Liked that is was central to everything. Disliked that the elevator was broken and had to walk up and down 5 flights of stairs with luggage. Also staff failed to let us know that you had to book christmas dinner in advance.

We loved our stay here! Will always stay at The Clarence when we're in Dublin.

Nice hotel, friendly staff and great location very close to all the Dublin attractions.

One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. The staff were extremely helpful and the rooms were very comfortable. Due to no air con, they provide you with a fan. Lots of tv channels. Great water pressure and comfortable bed.

Great hotel. Centrally located, so it's close to everything.

The staff were super friendly and helpful, and the location of the hotel was central to everything in Dublin.

Room was great, noise level from a pub outside and downstairs was intolerable until 3 am.

The hotel is located near many of the attractions in Dublin. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful staff & great location! Within walking distance of most sites & entertainment.

Had a room overlooking a courtyard bar so even with the windows closed there was noise until 2am on a Monday night. Good sized room with plenty of closet space. Staff were very helpful. Location is great for walking to restaurants and sights but the trade off is the noise.

Pleasant staff. Nice location. Not luxurious in any way.

The hotel is centrally located in the temple bar area which makes it noisy at night. The room was spacious and comfortable but there is no air conditioning but we were provided with a fan.

Older building. Room is smaller but efficient. Excellent location for touring Dublin sites and nightlife

Always great fun and comfortable stay. Close to everything that you want to see.

The hotel was quiet, clean, and the staff helped us create a special moment for both a birthday and an anniversary. We couldn't ask for anything more.

Nice location near the edge of the Temple Bar district. Rooms are nicely done and comfortable. Staff is courteous, helpful and professional. Enjoyed the quaintness of the Octagon Bar. The only drawback is that there is still a lot of street noise from the partying in the Temple Bar district until the wee hours of the morning. Even Sunday night! Bring ear plugs...

reception staff and concierge were fantastic. every request and inquiry was met with a willing smile and useful information. we left a tip for the maid and it was not taken. location is extremely convenient to the Temple Bar area and all of it's pubs and restaurants.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your review of The Clarence. I hope you could accept our apologies for any inconveniences that you may have experienced during your stay due to the lift being broken. Unfortunately as the lift stopped working over the holidays the company that provides the service could not send a technician any faster. However our concierge helped every guest with luggage and any other request. As per your comments on Christmas Dinner, the restaurant was fully booked for Christmas since November, we had a few suggestions of different places that were open and available upon request. Warm regards,

Dear Wayne, Thank you for staying with us. I apologise that the external noise was a disturbance to you but unfortunately due to the location of the hotel and the volume of people in the area this is out of our control.
