“Brilliant”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We did not stay here but dined here on the two evenings. The food is very nice and the staff even nicer. Dermot, the bar man was very friendly on the first night and kept everyone in craic while working away. On the second night, Mike served us and again was very friendly. A band and Irish dancers entertained us on the first night, and a man was singing on the second night. All very enjoyable. The food is reasonable and I would go back again.

Stayed at the Arlington O'Connell in November with my husband and would highly recommend it. Great location to walk to nearby sights or grab the hop on hop off bus right outside hotel. Delicious food in hotel restaurant. Buffet breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of food to choose from. Dinner and show was well worth the price and the best show compared to many at other hotels in the city. Food was excellent and staff was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Unfortunately spent €10 per head to hear without doubt the worst band ever. It's NYE and while I don't expect to see outstanding live music the least I 'd expect is a lead singer who could sing. Absolute Rip off. Never Again. Need to Raise standards as IMO it's not good enough.

Had a great pre Christmas stay at the Arlington.
Great hospitable staff who all go the extra mile to make your stay a great one.
Superb location and you can walk to anywhere you want to sightsee, in the City.
Bar and restaurant are excellent, if a tad expensive but no worse than anywhere else we tried. Guinness cheaper than Temple Bar!!
We did the Irish night and dispite my reservations about the price, it turned out to be good value for money.
We had a room on the third floor and there was no disturbance from noise whatsoever. Bus stop for airport transfer is just around the corner.
Can highly recommend the Arlington, but just be aware drinking and eating in Dublin generally is not a cheap experience, so take plenty of euros.

Room Tip: Higher the better, to the rear if possible

I was met at the lobby by the manager who organised help immediately to get my bags to my room then told I could see the show of dance and music by having a drink in the bar. I got to the bar which was full and the staff went out of their way to find a front row seat for me and my son. I felt like royalty. Thanks sooo much. The rooms were small but well appointed and the beds comfy. Breakfast was substantial and the late checkout time was terrific as we got to do a walking tour of the city before checkout in the morning. The location is excellent. The staff are a great asset with checkin and out prompt.

This hotel is well worth the money, it's in a great location in the centre of Dublin. The hotel itself has enough in it for you not to leave but if you do all the pubs/bars are walking distance as are the shops. Staff are very friendly, especially the lady who greets you for a top breakfast.. .. first class service. Highly recommended!!
