“A budget Hotel that provides all you need”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

This hotel features on many deals and is in a central location by the River Liffy close to O’Connell Bridge. The rooms have all the basic amenities are well serviced and clean. Coffee facilities, ironing board, TV, hair dryer and soap dispensers but no fridge. You cannot ask or expect more in budget hotels. It is not a five star hotel and does not pretend to be but what it does it does well. Friendly, helpful staff and free Wifi. The rooms vary in size and some can be noisy. A show bar forms part of the hotel and it is on a main busy road. The staff will try and accommodate you but it is a very busy hotel and well occupied so expect some disappointment.

The Arlington represents a solid value in a three star hotel ideally situated in central Dublin. My room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and rather large by European standards. The hot water problems reported by previous guests must have been fully resolved as there was extremely hot water available at all times. And the heating system worked well too. The only reason I didn't go to a five star rating was the wifi. There appear to be two routers, one of which has a slightly stronger signal but no internet access. The other has a very weak signal but does have internet access. While I was able to connect with my laptop, my wifi phone couldn't find a strong enough signal to place a call. Perhaps some rooms have better signal strength than others, but overall the wifi performance is rather dismal. Other than that, I give high marks to this hotel and would consider it again for a future stay.

Room Tip: Rooms second floor and higher are not affected by restaurant music noise.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights last Easter and it was great. Very central on the River Liffey near O'connell bridge there are easy links to the pubs, bars, airport and all tourist attractions. The hotel looks a little old but was very clean and the staff were lovely. We stayed in the restaurant one of the nights for the dinner show which was excellent. They offered 3 course meal complete with a live music and dance show. It was a great laugh. Oh and a special mention to the lady who runs breakfast. She was like a traditional Irish mother trying to feed us up before a day out and provide recovery for the previous evening. There was plenty of variety and a good start to the day.

Stayed at this hotel last weekend. We arrived early and were pleased to find out that we were able to leave our bags at the hotel whilst we went out to explore. Before we left we popped into the bar for a quick drink and found the staff really friendly and the bar prices reasonable for Dublin and a hotel bar.

On our first evening we decided to go to the Celtic Nights show that the hotel puts on in the evenings. For 34 euro you get a 3 course meal and live traditional Irish entertainment. The food was delicious and the service very quick and friendly. The entertainment was brilliant and I would recommend the evening to anyone visiting Dublin.

The room was spacious and clean and was just what we required for our stay.

All the staff (bar, reception etc) were all very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to Dublin.

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
