“Great location. Large Room.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

This hotel was ok. Nothing really special, but nothing bad either. Our room was large and clean, although somewhat plain in decor. Nice bed. Breakfast was good. Great location very central. Staff was friendly.

Stayed there mid February. Superb location for everything in Dublin. Had a lovely clean, spacious room towards the back of the hotel which was very quiet. Had a delicous light meal on arrival and a wonderful dinner in the evening. The staff were pleasant and helpful. There asthe usual traditional music and dancing in the bar, which was very entertaining. There was not standing room in the bar, which is very spacious, and this was a Wednesday night. (no sign of recession in Dublin). Will return.

Room Tip: Go early if you would like a seat for the nightly entertainment

Stayed at The Arlington Hotel last week great location, room spacious and clean however the bathroom could do with a re-furb. Unfortunately there was no hot water for the 3 days during our stay, even though we complained to the Receptionist. She was very helpful and informed us that this would be sorted!!!! Never was, now this week I am suffering from a heavy cold. I will be returning to Dublin in June this year booked into Cassidys.

Room Tip: Go for a room with hot water if possible.

Having heard great reports from my brother and parents i was so looking forward to going to this hotel, On check in there was one lovely receptionist and one who seemed uninterested in her job, The hotel is ideally situated in dublin and rooms are plain and simple food was nice but service was not, On the tuesday night my father who is a publican himself was spoken to so rudely by a bar staff member for simply ordering a drink it was highly unprofessional after all taking drinks orders is his job, On the Wednesday night we had dinner included in our stay i booked our table for 7pm with the girl in reception, On arriving down for dinner i was asked had i made a reservation i said yes and gave my room number to which i was informed i wasnt on the list, The manager sat us at the bar and after a 15 min wait came back to say someone would be with us soon, We were seated orders taken starters & main course eaten nobody seemed to come back to clear plates my brothers girlfriend had to ask for desert menus which someone took our order for about 20 mins later again no plates where cleared and nobody approached us to pay the extras as we had steaks, we got up and went to a till to pay the manager looked lost so my husband & brother waited on bill while we went to bathroom on leaving the bar i was approached by our waitdress & another manager who asked was i a resident and what room i was in would they room charge it i informed them the boys had been waiting at the till to pay, to which it was replied oh we thought use did a runner, i felt like because we were two young couples we were looked down upon, Being a receptionist myself i understand that everyone gets stressed when its busy but it just seemed noone had any clue what they or anyone else was supposed to be doing.

Stayed here last weekend while in Dublin, at the Jersey night show in the Gaiety.
Hotel very central , just of O'Connell street and 15 minute walk to St. Stephens green and Gaiety theatre. Staff very pleasant and helpful, room warm , clean and comfortable, with tea/coffee making facility
Will have no problem staying at this hotel next time in Dublin.

Arrived room clean warm modern bed huge very comfortable. Added bonus of a safe in the room delighted with that. Staff very nice and polite. Nice atmosphere in the room. Only downfall it was expensive as I booked it late. Those with me booked earlier and got it cheap moral of the story book early. Fantastic location for sight seeing, shopping, socialising the lot
