This is a no-frills old school type of hotel. It is quite dated and old fashioned in the style and decor. There is no sound control/insulation. You can hear all sorts of noise from outside AND inside of the hotel. The location is true to the name - centrally located in

This was my first trip to Dublin and I wanted a central location where I could walk around and explore the city. This hotel was near the Temple Bar area but didn't have the noise or bustle of being in the middle of it. It was also a short walk to the Dublin Castle and the

Dear Eric9396, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review of The Central Hotel on Trip Advisor. We are very proud of our central location in Dublin and I am glad to read that you found it good for exploring our city. As a Dublin native, I too share your complaint of Dublin's streets which I know rarely make any sense. I hope we will get the opportunity to welcome you back to the Central Hotel on your next visit to Dublin. Kind Regards,

Sat in the Library bar as I write this, after a wonderful couple of hours chilling with a book in the most perfect environment... oh, and after my other half told me about the dreadful things written on here about this wonderful hotel, I feel compelled to share my own experience

Couldn’t get water to the shower, bath was fine.
We asked for a quiet room away from traffic and as requested we did not have traffic noise, instead we had the noise of the extraction or something like that! Our room looked right out onto it.

My sincere apologies for the delay in responding. We have two lifts in the property but there are certain areas which have stairs to get access to.

I don't know but this hotel was disgustingly dirty. Our rooms had holes in the carpet and stains all over the walls and chairs. We had 2 rooms and both were absolutely gross. Our toilet didn't work. I have traveled to 13 countries in Europe and this was the one and only bad one. When we told the staff they agreed it needed a "refurbishing". Not it needs cleaned. Don't waste your money. Once in Ireland we saw a lot of nice hotels.

"Ask for a quiet room - some can be VERY noisy indeed."
"Bring ear plugs."
"Ask for a room on the quiet side of the building if you can."
"If it is summer, I would ask for a lower room."
"Maybe a room away from the 'fun' pubs below."
