The Westbury Hotel

Dublin City Center Dublin|0.42km from Dublin Castle
This hotel is 5-star price-wise only. For example, when we arrived, we have been welcomed by the Customer Care Person, who explained to us who she is, but said nothing on how she can help us and definitely nothing about the construction on the 4th floor of the hotel. So, banging starts at 8:30, which presumes that everyone is up and about at that hour. Apparently, they were supposed to notify me about it via e-mail, but someone just forgot about it... If I knew there will be construction at the hotel, I would have never stayed here. I guess that's why I never got that email... The concierge reached out to us a while ago asking why we are staying at the hotel so long. We have written to him in a reasonable detail. No response. Zero follow-up. The concierge in general was great in instructing us how we can do things ourselves. Another example. We return to the hotel at 10 pm, and our ever-hungry teenagers would like to eat something. - We are sorry but all the restaurants close their kitchens at 9:30 pm, and there is no room service. - Can we have have at least some bread and butter? (And here, the staff at 5 or even 4-star hotel would respond ”Let me see what I can do.” But instead we heard:) - No. You need to take care of it by yourself. And, it is like this, pretty much with everything service-wise at this hotel. Only the staff of the first-floor café seemed to know what they are doing. It just looks like the place lacks direction from the management that is lost and confused. To add to the ”attractions” we could hear very clearly all the water noises coming from a room next door. We also had some trouble falling asleep as the guy next door snored like a hog in heat. I also think that having the permanently screwed through cracked dial to a heated towel rack is something that I would find at a 2-star hotel, and I still would be surprised... There was 6 of us in 3 rooms, and we stayed here for 6 nights. The impressions were all the same. It's the details that matter both in the customer service and the decor, and it is simply not a case here. At the end of our stay, the front desk staff has made a scene, because we wanted a detailed invoice. Thanks to that though we found out they have charged us additional numerous positions from the mini bar, which we did NOT use. So, please be careful they will try to cheat you.

Harding Hotel
4.7/548 Reviews
Dublin City Center
I stayed for four nights with my teenage daughter on a mother-daughter trip. Got a great rate booking a few months in advance, and I am so impressed with the value received for the price. We were given a room with two beds on the top floor facing the courtyard- it was quiet and comfortable. I brought earplugs after reading some reviews about noise, but we didn’t need them. The bathroom was updated and the shower was great- hot and nice pressure. The beds were a little “creaky” but comfortable, and the linens were cozy. The hotel staff were helpful, the restaurant was good for breakfast (although we chose to eat elsewhere most mornings) and Darkey Kelly’s pub on the first floor had great food and music. The location is fantastic- we were able to walk pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. I really can’t find a single fault with this hotel for the price. Would definitely stay again.

Last time I stayed here ( about 6 years ago?) room was dirty so have not been back again until three weeks ago. Location is superb right at the edge of Temple bar along the River Liffey -downside its a party area so like most Hotels in this area dont plan to sleep until late as lots of noise from bars etc. Room was lovely with lots of nice touches -only big issues I had was in 12c Dublin coming from 32c Jakarta and central heating did not work-you have to call reception to get it switched on then it cuts off every hour and does not work again until you call reception-totally unacceptable for a 5 star Hotel . Ended calling them five times so not much sleep!! It was a Tuesday night so looked like one of the bars in the Hotel was shut-but lots outside anyhow. Did not have breakfast as last time I did was served-took ages and was cold-judging by recent reviews on tripadvisor looks like this still. Reception on check in and out would not win any prizes for their hospitality and were just ok-could learn from The Morrison across the river where I stayed a few nights earlier -genuine hospitality. Would I stay there again -NO -leave it to Bono and the locals -heat is a basic requirement as is hospitality-better Hotels for the same or less money to be had in Dublin City.

The house is small, but the facilities are complete and there is a kettle to boil water. Good location Just on the main street, walk to Trinity College for 5 minutes, go to the shopping festival for 5 minutes, and be close to the bar street.

We were given a bigger apartment than expected with 2 bedrooms. It was very nice, clean and comfortable and also very quiet at night. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom big enough with a wide shower. The kitchen was well equipped and the living area was nice and comfy. We spent a lovely time here and we would definitely get back. I highly recommend it.
Hard Rock Hotel Dublin
4.4/5108 Reviews
Dublin City Center
How sound proof are these rooms! Wow, in the heart of the city and slept sound, better than a baby on a 1st Class Flight. I’m a Dubliner, left Ireland 24 years ago and came back for Paddy’s Weekend. I arrived amongst the thrills and excitement of the parade, with everything only a stones throw away. Great location for the center of Dublin. Although the reception area was a little underwhelming compared to other hotels of same price and stars, it was a true joy to stay here. Spent a lot of time in Temple Bar area and of course the marvelous Horse Shoe Bar at the Shelbourne Hotel.
Kinlay House Dublin
3.7/565 Reviews
Dublin City Center
I had the 6 bed in one room for 3 nights and I had a very good experience at this hostel.The location is great and prices for Dublin are good and beds are clean and shower warm. Staff was ok. But you need to know what to expect. Don't make your experience in Dublin a 1/5 one. - This hostel is in an old building that will/can never be 100% clean. Germaphobes need not apply - This hostel is next to a cathedral and near the temple bar. So if you are a light sleeper avoid. - There are no elevators or lifts. If you cant walk a few flights of stairs.please avoid. - In this hostel, there seems to be a few guys from the streets. I don't know if they are guests or a charity thing. But they just stay in the common area watching TV. If that worries you don't book. - Right now, some of their shower and bathroom need repair and some of the bathroom are mixed. If that bugs you then please avoid. -This hostel has strict policy on refunds and payment. So ask before booking. Last tip, you might not need a locker, a locker is 3 extra euro a night. But i found the lockable box under my bed was more than enough.
