This place is a dump, we unfortunately stayed here for a week in August. They gave us a room directly above the bar downstairs and underneath that bar was a nightclub that went until the wee hours of the morning. I should have know we were screwed from the get go when the lady hesitated to assign us to our room open check in, promptly saying that it might be "a bit noisy". We never feel asleep before 4 am the entire week despite wearing noise cancelling headphones to try to block it all out. We changed rooms after the first night but just moved up one floor directly above and the noise was no better. We tried to change again to a more interior room but was told that they were all booked up. To say we got no sleep the week we were here is an understatement. The Eastern European woman at the desk was condescending and told us,"Your in Temple Bar what did you expect?" and laughed at us when we told her our room as about 20 degrees warmer than the temperature outside. Damned if you open the window to attempt to cool it off and have your ears blown by all the noise and damned if you keep the window close to preserve your sanity but just expect to roast to death. I have stayed in heart of New Orleans during Mardi Gras, Rio during Carnival and in the middle of Times Square on several occasions and have never experienced the noise level this place has to offer. Even the nights we got pass out drunk your still woken by people screaming and the terrible music coming from underneath you. They should close the the hotel part down all together and just keep the building a nightclub because a hotel is somewhere you go to rest and sleep and you will get none of that here.
