“Good for those on a budget”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Was expecting the worst when reading other reviews, but the place was ideal for our budget. Room had own bathroom, was clean and not too loud. Definitely not the Ritz, but you get what you pay for. Nowhere secure to leave your luggage when you check out but the visitors centre by Trinity College looks after bags for €3.

Was very dubious about our stay after reading other reviews!! Location was absolutely perfect being right on the doorstep of Template Bar.
The room was small but was clean and we had clean towels every morning.
The hotel itself is in need of cosmetic attention and the mattresses were not the comfiest but all in all it was great value for money.

When we arrived to Bridge House we were greeted by a lady on reception who was rude and didn't crack a smile once whilst she checked us in. When we were given our keys we were set up a wonky set of stairs which then led onto a corridor where both of are rooms were, the rooms were very basic, no additional items in the room such as hairdryers/ iron/ soap (make sure you take your own). The TV did NOT work and the wifi was a dead spot in our rooms unless you wanted to sit in the catering area! The shower had to be run for more than 10 minutes in order to get hot water which was a pain, bathroom was overall very clean and we were given fresh towels each day. Be careful of the shower doors as I managed to pull it off whilst we stayed and had to push it back on. Our beds were also changed daily and bins emptied. This hotel is in such a good prime location, there is a restaurant below, which had good quality food and was also cheap!! The hotel is located in the temple bar area which was absolutely fantastic it was less than a 5 minute walk to get to both shops and pubs!! The breakfast was very mediocre there wasn't a big selection, nor a lot of space to sit considering there was a party of 6 of us. The beds were probably the most comfiest ones I have had the pleasure of sleeping in on a holiday away, and the hotel is very quiet. Overall our stay at bridge house was top notch despite the facilities as we spent most of our time away from the hotel, I wouldn't suggest staying here if you have children or spend a lot of time in the hotel as there are no proper facilities for you to use. I would recommend this hotel for groups of people who are out to explore Dublin and drink in the local bars. You have to check out at 11 meaning if your flights in the evening you have to struggle carrying your bags around during the day, luckily the hotel provided us with a spot to leave our bags unfortunately for us it was in the middle of a corridor next to a sign saying they aren't responsible for loss of luggage or stolen items! Be wary of leaving your bags unattended.

the shower door was broken as in one part of three was not there at all so every time either of us had a shower the water was going out on the floor.this meant we had to keep drying the floor with the towels to stop the water going through the floor down into a Resteraunt below us.we asked about it been fixed after the first night.supposed to be fixed by day three never touched by the time we left on the eight day.other than that the room was what it was a double room.ok for the price i suppose

Room Tip: fix the shower door

We stayed over a night and it was a horrible experience. The staff was rude, They chased us out because we arrived too early, and although we had a long journey, also denied us the use of the toilet before the specific check in time. The toilets have probably not been serviced in a decade it is really stinky. I think the building itself has potential , and wasting a prime spot like this seems like a crime.

Room Tip: There is probably no good room.

I stayed here three nights over Near Years, and it was ok. Nothing really to write home about. There are circular stairs that take you to the top (where my room was) which are a bit narrow, so it might be a point of concern for those who may have a lot of luggage. The beds were comfortable and it was clean, but bring your own shampoo and soap. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay that is near the excitement of Temple Bar, this isn't a bad choice. It was awesome hearing the bells from Christ Church in my room, especially at midnight on New Years Day. Front desk staff are friendly. You need to leave your key with them every time you go out, but someone is always sitting at the desk no matter what time of day so it isn't an issue. Overall noise level was good from the top floor where we were. Besides the bells, I didn't hear any street noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a lower floor. Trudging luggage up and down those narrow stairs is no picnic.

Right, reading the reviews for this hotel it seems some people are fairly happy because of the value for money and some people are disappointed. I guess it depends on which room you get....I cannot believe some people would be happy to sleep in rooms 4 or 10 (the two rooms that I have seen). True the hotel is very well located, fairly clean and (surprisingly) does offer free WIFI (I would not expect that form this kind of hotel) but for the rest is absolutely terrible.
The rooms I was give faced the backyard and are right above some restaurants extractor fan, the rooms smell terrible (especially room 4 which is on the first floor).
If that was not enough the window is single glazed and does not close properly, meaning that you get a constant draft of cold air from outside....on the top of that in MY ROOM THE RADIATOR NEVER SWITCHED ON although I have asked it several times and for several times I have been told they would have switched on the heating "later on" (the last time I asked was one o'clock at night and the outside temperature was about 1C).

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 4 and 10 (single rooms)
