The Mercantile Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Mercantile Hotel is a magnificent hotel, made in the charming tradional irish way, offering high quality services. I would particulary thank Tristan, the norman waiter, for his soft and warm kindness( which help to feel directly at home), working hard with big smile.

Booked the hotel on spec off the web. Two of us travelled up on business from Cork...visiting Trinity and Mansion House. €90 B&B all up for two sharing. The location could not be better. Room clean and relaxing. Tea, coffee, TV in room. Barhroom on suite perfect. Staff great and friendly ( they have their own wizard! ). There were ear plugs available in the room which i did nt use but then i would love the background hum of a virant capital city and this hotel is slam dunk in the middle of the action in possily the nicest part of town. Fantastic pubs and restaurants nearby. Breakfast simple but all up our stay was great value for money. No complaints at all. Enjoy!

Just popped in with a few mates from the UK to catch a match last weekend and ended up staying the afternoon. A big characterful pub in a busy location, it had lots of screens, mainly showing football! A good choice of beers at the bar at and a comprehensive bar menu. We enjoyed it.

Very good location in the heart of Dublin, next to a 24h Spar Supermarket.. Friendly staff. Check-in at 13:00 was no problem. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Wi-Fi Connection is also very good. Breakfast was excellent.

This was really just a pit stop for us but wanted a good rest prior to flying the next day. The positive was a clean room although very dated. The pictures do not tell the whole story. Yes, this is a very noisy location in the Temple Bar area. We went out for dinner and just came back to sleep (sort of). Breakfast was included in package and it was a very disorganized restaurant. Received undercooked porridge and my husband's meal was OK - luke warm. It was after 8 in the morning but it seemed like they just weren't ready. While I do realize that breakfast is not the hotel - it is all part of the deal. In the end it was alright but not to be recommended for long term stays.

Well situated for exploring the city. Old fashioned interior but nicely painted and cleanly presented. City noise at night from traffic and Temple Bar revellers disturbed sleep - double glazing would reduce the noise and improve the enjoyment of a stay here.

Cute little Victorian Era Hotel just outside Temple Bar. While the hotel isn't much other than a 3 star hotel, (so if you are looking for the Ritz... keep looking, this isn't your hotel), they helped us out in a pinch. My wife and I landed in Dublin on our anniversary. We had booked an Air BNB and well, lets just say it didn't work out and we were stuck with no place to stay. We frantically searched the area for anywhere to crash for the night, Hostel, motel, anything. We were pointed to the Mercantile. They were fantastic! The room was more than adequate, the bed was nice and the hotel itself was in a great location. They gave us a great price and we didn't even ask for it. Rooms were very clean, and I personally enjoyed the Victorian era feel to the place. Would GLADLY enjoy staying there again!

Super fun neighborhood, and a really cute hotel, but it’s across the street from a popular bar with dozens of drunk people singing karaoke until late in the night, so unless you’re one of them, it could be a serious problem.

Called in for a quick pit stop on way to Indian meal...drinks going down a treat great place for a drink. Guinness and desperados great :):) for looks good. also below a hotel ....if you want a good base to be near all the action this is the place to be

Used this due to its location, cheap price for the night, and the fact that I had to finish work late and be back in early the next morning. Room is not to the highest standards, but good hot water and comfy bed. Windows very tin and no sleep could be got due to the area hotel is located. Upon check out, there was issues with the card machine to which I was told I didn't have any funds on my card, when obviously I did, so wasn't impressed by this. Eventually it was sorted. Overall, an average experience, ive stayed in better, but also stayed in far worse.
