We chose this hotel because it was a great price for a triple room in the center of Dublin. This hotel is located very close to Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton Street, Ha'Penny Bridge, and lots of hop-on-hop-off bus stops. We stayed here for 4 nights and then went to the west coast of Ireland for a night and then returned to the Fleet Street Hotel for 1 night. The room we had for the first part of the trip was a standard three single bed triple room that overlooked the street/alley. Since the hotel does not have air conditioning, it's pretty mandatory in the summer to keep your window open which unfortunately means that you hear ALL the noise from the street, including LOTS of drunk people in the Temple Bar area and the beeping from trucks. All in all, it was very noisy and made us happy that we brought ear plugs. The room was nice but the bathroom was TINY and the shower was very small. The second part of our stay we had a room with a double bed and a single bed that overlooked a small courtyard instead of the street. It was SO MUCH quieter - I highly recommend asking for a courtyard room if you stay at this hotel! The bathroom in this room was also much larger with a bathtub. Despite the hotel not having air conditioning, the staff was more than happy to provide you with a fan which was very helpful. A small negative of this hotel is that the breakfast room is very small. The breakfast itself is delicious! They have a great variety of options - eggs, toast, fruit, etc. We didn't run into the problem of not having a place to sit in the room, but it happened to several groups while we were already seated. Make sure to get to breakfast kind of early so that you can get a seat before it fills up.
All in all, this is a great hotel for the price and it's in a wonderful part of Dublin. I think if you ask for a courtyard room and get to breakfast early you won't have any complaints!
