“Great Location, Terrible Hotel”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I would have given this place 0 stars if that was an option. This place was so negative that it actually made me regret going to Dublin. The receptionist from when I checked in actually seemed to take satisfaction in her rudeness and unhelpfulness. Certain people aren’t cut out for service industries, but wow, she was a pitbull.

My room and the lobby were small and tight, but clean and more or less well maintained, so you can definitely do worst. I was on the top floor so the water pressure in my shower was annoyingly weak and spotty. Also, they provide no toiletries.

The location is right by Temple Bar and across the street from both the Porter House Bar and the Leffe River, so location is great. It had a small entrance but if you find the Porter House Bar, you’ll be able to find the entrance pretty quickly. Dining hall was standard. The wifi didn’t reach my room but was free and if I went down a floor I could connect. Also, they had electrical adapters available on deposit, which was helpful. I stayed in Room 11, which had private access to the roof, which was great for smoking. But the service and cleaning staff were awful. Probably the worst I’ve ever experienced in any country I’ve ever visited.

There are several comparably priced options to this place in Dublin, so unless you have some burning desire for this particular location, AVOID Bridge House if you can.

Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the Lobby, so you can reach the wifi.

Excellent location right near temple bar. The bed was the worst that ive ever tried to sleep in and I write try as I got minimal sleep. The window when closed was still gapping open. This is because the room was on a lean. The service was straight forward but far from friendly. Pay extra and stay at another hotel.

Over priced for what it is not good at all won't be returning to this establishment again. The room was shoddy and the place itself was not worth the money per night. Very disappointed. The only decent thing going for it is the reception is 24 hours there is free wifi and it's only a minute walk from the city centre

Stayed for one night. Found the staff rude on reception. The price we paid for the room was too expensive for the condition of the room we stayed in. There were stains on the bedsheets. No hairdryer in the room even though it stated there would be on arrival. Had to walk up about 70 steps from the front door to the top floor to get to the room so I'm grateful that i had a light bag with me. The only good thing i can report is the location. Perfect for temple bar, o'connell st etc.

Location is fantastic, staff weren't gushing but were civil enough, room was dated but spotlessly clean, tea and coffee stuff near reception, beds comfy, noise outside not too bad, and the price was unbelievably cheap, you get what you pay for... And after all, you're only going to be sleeping there!
