The Fleet Street Hotel, Temple Bar

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location was great but no a/c so the windows have to be open and it's horribly noisy with late night revelers to early morning garbage trucks. Room was cramped and stuffy and smelled moldy. Bathrooms were hideous, toilets need 2 primings to finally flush on the 3rd try! No toiletries not even tissues. Only a bottle of soap attached to the sink and shower wall. Shower was so tiny that anyone larger than size 12 dress can't squeeze inside plus the water never drained. The room and floor layouts were bizarre and one is constantly going up and down stairs. On the plus side, the maids were great and the concierge and reception staff were so helpful and friendly.

Hotel was in a good location in Temple Bar. Easy access to many attractions. Stayed in summer and weather was actually warm - no a/c in the hotel. Staff was pleasant. A good stay overall.

Fleet Street hotel is the central location... it's very original and very old. They have done massive updating (rooms are brand new) but inside an ancient skeleton. Don't think hotel amenities and services. On staff is one person at desk and 2 people cleaning.... lobby is above T.G.I. Friday's. if you have an elegance room it means it's updated, but you'll walk about a block inside the hotel through stairs and hallways- no elevator (lift). All I'm saying is it's another one that looks like gloss on the internet... but. Also- I'm sure done soon but they do loud construction on the street below ALL night. The hotel leaves ear plugs on the bed stand

Easy walk from the airport bus. We stayed twice in 2 different rooms. Both were clean and comfortable. Did not have any issues with noise but appreciated that there were earplugs in each room. Staff was courteous. Very nice lounge and coffee bar area.

Hotel was a dormitory style hotel, attached to a TGI Friday's. Room assigned (not requested) was handicap accessible so the bathroom was one big room with no divider for bath/shower, just a shower head in corner. This set up should have been disclosed at check in. Double bed with 2 flat pillows, no additional pillows for comfort. Noise in hallway sounded as though it was in the room. Seemed more like a hostel than a hotel. Spent as little time as possible in the hotel.

Great location in city beside Temple Bar, rooms are spacious enough and clean. I stayed in an Elagance room which was very spacious and good facilities. The huge downside was it was right above a bar with loud music and if you stay at weekends don't expect to even watch tv as music is very loud. The road outside is one of the busiest in city also so lot of traffic so another downside. They don't have block out curtains but rather wooden shutters , yes they look great by sunlight still shines through and can affect your sleep and comfort as bed faces both large windows. Bed was double but not full double so not ideal for such a large room. Bathroom was smaller but very modern and a great shower.

Hotel is conveniently located in the Temple Bar District. The hallways are narrow and make it difficult to get a suitcase thru them if there is a cleaning linen cart parked in the hallway. Also, the floors are cut up so you may have to navigate a couple sets of stairs with a suitcase to get to your room. We stayed on the second floor and once we took the elevator up to the second floor we had to drag our suitcases down six or seven steps as our room was at the end of the hallway and then down another six or seven steps. quite cumbersome when you have a lot of luggage. Rooms were also quite small but they were very clean and staff was pleasant.

Room was a decent size. Hotel was close to everything.

The location is great. You are close to everything. The bathroom is EXTREMELY small. There is nowhere for you to place your toiletries. I didn't like that the water in the shower did not drain. I couldn't shower comfortably. They checked for a clog, but there was not one. The maintenance guy said the shower just has too much pressure. The place is set up like a dorm, which didn’t bother me much because I was there with my boyfriend. If I had been there alone I would have freaked out. There are long hallways on the way to your room, it just freaked me out a bit. The staff was great, though. The bar downstairs will keep you up if you are a light sleeper. I am not so it didn't really bother me. I liked that there was a bar directly downstairs. If you don’t mind small spaces, this place is great.

Fantastic location, but the room was MUCH smaller than other comparable hotels in Temple Bar (at comparable prices). The bathroom was clean but soaps that we're intended to be wall-mounted had fallen off the wall. There is an elevator, but be ready to go up and down lots of stairs anyway. Nice perk: a free drink at the affiliated bar, and an espresso machine in the reception area.

Upgraded room was fantastic. Location perfect and walkable to dublins best. Front of building is noisy so request in back if possible!

Zero hospitality. The concierge manager walked into my room unannounced and saw me naked. With zero apologies they wrote a letter that seemed to be avoiding some sort of legal altercation. Believe me, I don't need to sue you guys over this. Just an apology is fine. The room was also soooo hot. We slept on top of the covers with the windows open while flies flew in through the window and landed on us while we tried to sleep. Oh, but the location is great!

Excellent staff, free coffee and tea. Good location for sightseeing

Centrally located for walking or riding the bus to pubs, historic,shopping and restaurants. No Air conditioning or fans

Prime location near many pubs and bus stop for airport on corner. Nice rooms (smaller than they appear in photos), helpful staff.

Decided to visit Dublin for three days and regretted it right away. We should've stayed longer. The Fleet Street hotel was perfectly located. Everything in downtown - walking distance, almost right outside the door. Hotel was really nice and comfortable, only issue we had was no a/c in the room, I understand it's Dublin and cold throughout the year, but the room got stuffy after a while. We left the window open overnight but the street out back was very noisy - trash collection and beer keg replenishment from the bars at 5am. Overall, this place is great for the price, I would stay here again the next time I visit Dublin.

Overall great stay. Perfect location. No complaints!

clean, excellent location in the middle of downtown and next to restaurants and bars, great bar in the hotel, very friendly staff

Everything I had hoped! Will definitely be back to visit!

very close to where the party is, lots of food to eat around, convenience store is in front so its very good on that side.
