Trinity Lodge3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The food was excellent, but as noted above the fact that the building had no lift was devastating to me! I know the property would have been difficult to add an elevator; however, if you don't have one that ought to be said right UP FRONT! My room was just adequate, nothing better.
The most impressive characteristic of this hotel is its location, smack in the middle of Dublin and perfect for sightseeing. The accommodation is fairly basic, but for what it’s worth my bathroom was brand new and very nice. There is a fair amount of street noise, which is to be expected in this part of town. I did not try the breakfast, which was included. Free wifi. Friendly staff.
Right near Trinity College and Grafton Street, the Trinity Lodge is in an excellent spot to explore the city. The free breakfast is really fantastic and I've never had a better croissant. However, the Wi-Fi is spotty, there are no elevators and we had to lug our stuff up 3 flights. It's charming I guess to have actual metal keys instead of card keys but it caused us problems a few times. The shower was terrible but the bathroom was huge. Blinds didn't close in the bathroom...didn't feel very private. It seems like this place could use a serious update. I would have given 2/5 if not for the breakfast. It really was wonderful. Too bad they don't offer breakfast to the random passerby. I won't stay again.
This Hotel is a glorified B&B, which is just fine. It is central to most sights (10 min walk to Temple Bar, 2 Min walk to Trinity College or Grafton St. etc...). The "Hotel" consists of 3 converted Georgian era town homes where each floor was converted into 2 ensuite rooms....the rooms were spacious.... But showed signs of age and serious wear....the bathroom had serious signs of water damage including mold on the ceiling and peeling paint above the shower... That's not a deal breaker to me, but certainly a handy man and a 1/2 a day could have cleared that up....that shouldn't have been present....the only major issue I had was the beds....Man were they rough!...clearly very old mattresses with the springs long gone....the room had 2 king beds, and we stayed in the one that was the least uncomfortable....But both were in pretty rough shape.....had they tidied up the fixtures and had a reasonably comfortable mattress I'd have highly recommended the place....They really need to get on that... we stayed on the second floor of the #30 building, the unit facing the street....The people were very nice, but man those beds....argh....
Stayed here on an overnight stay in Dublin. We stayed in the building across the road from reception. The bathroom in the room we had was on the small side. You had to walk down the side of the toilet to close the door which I thought was strange. There is also confusing signage with regards to the emergency exits. As you come down the stairs you will see an emergency exit sign over a door on the stairs, when you open it you will see a boiler in the cupboard between the 2nd and 3rd floor. Nothing major, they just need to put an arrow on the sign. The breakfast was really good and the staff helpful.
Great location just south of Trinity College. Within walking distance of sights, pubs, shopping and public transportation. The showers are very slippery and it's hard to find a temperature between icy cold and scalding hot. The employees are super friendly and helpful.
We stayed for a week in the summer. This hotel has a number of good and not so good aspects to it. The good - its location is ideal and close/walking distance to the museums, restaurants and the many areas that most folks will want to see and be at in Dublin. The staff with the exception of one of the lady's at the front desk is very warm and friendly. There is a full breakfast in the morning with a number of menu selections and fruit etc. The not so good - the rooms need updating - I hear this will be done early in 2018. The stairs - if you are not able to carry your luggage upstairs you will not be happy here. The front desk did not offer any assistance with this. In our situation we carried the luggage up 4 sets of stairs to our room. The front desk - unfortunately there is one of the employees who just is unpleasant at the front desk which is too bad as the others were very pleasant and professional. I have noticed there are a number of complaints on other reviews about this and unfortunately they are correct - if you ask a question or need anything there is an attitude that leaves no room for illusion that you are a source of annoyance to the hotel.
I have stayed here in the past and I am sorry to report that my return was less than warming. I forgot that you have to carry your luggage up the stairs yourself, ok it's a Georgian house but there should be Someone on hand to help you especially coming off an international flight. What I didn't expect was the rude receptionist. A very disagreeable lady received me, and was obnoxious when I had an issue with my room key. My motto is, if you don't like dealing with people find a different job! Very disappointing stay and I definitely won't be back
We stayed at this hotel over the summer and it was a very good hotel to walk to most of the sights in Dublin. Room 181 (king bed) and Room 182 (2 king beds) for our daughters. These rooms were across the street but were more than good enough after the long days of sight seeing. Temple bar area was maybe a 15 minute walk and the meeting point for Viator tours was very close as well. Stayed there for 3 days which was long enough to tour Dublin and then we were off to other parts of the country. Also, pick-up for my rental car (europacar) was near this location as well!
stayed in trinity lodge 15/17 September if your after spacious luxury this is not the place for you but if you want a room to put your head down after a long day it's perfect good location clean friendly and has all you need in the room, tea/coffee iron etc. Breakfast was very good, good selection and the staff were lovely friendly girls. It is not suitable for those who cannot manage stairs we had a good room in the basement but friends had quite a few stairs to get to their room. I would stay again no problem.
