Good central hotel

Hotel situated in center of town - easy walking to most of the sights. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. No paper tissues in the room. Can hear the live music from the bar (at least from the first floor). Not a problem if you're a deep sleeper.

great stay.the room was good but if you expect a modern boutique hotel you will be disappointed.but if you are like us and just want a comfortable room in an old irish building with some irish charm thrown in it is great.it was in a perfect position for us ,close to the mayhem of temple bar but also close to the more irish parts of Dublin away from the touristy areas.the only downside we found was we could have done with some tea/coffee making facilities in the room for late night/early morning drinks other than that it was perfect for us.

Late Booking with a Great Bargain!

Only booked at Sat lunchtime to drive up to Dublin for the afternoon and night. Great Hotel right in the hart of Dublin with easy excess to everything. We parked outside while we checked in and dumped our bag, car park was only around the corner and was quite cheap since they have a deal with the hotel. Excellent food in the hotel restaurant and great atmosphere. Only down side which did not effect us was there is a nightclub under the hotel that could keep you awake if your a light sleeper.

Fantastic Location

Fantastic central location. Compact room and very compact bathroom but with bath so that was a bonus. Very comfy bed. Walls not very thick but was perhaps lucky neighbours weren't noisy. Good deal on price, comfy bed, perfect location - great stay!

Nice Place

The Arlington is conveniently located on the edge of the Temple Bar entertainment precinct so there wasn't too much noise going on around the hotel but if you wanted it was only a block away. The hotel has good entertainment every night with an Irish Folk Group and Irish dancing.. The rooms are large and well appointed. I was travelling solo and my room had 3 beds. For the amount I paid for the night it was a great deal. The staff were all friendly and helpful. If I were to return to Dublin I would definitely stay there again

great location

The location is really great. Just opposite from Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral + Dublinia, few minutes walk to Trinity College, 10-15 min walk to the Dart station, shopping on O'Connell street. The Airlink bus stops right in front of the hotel and goes every 15 minutes, which is very convenient. Of course, with the great location comes some noise. We had a streetside room, so noise was inevitable, which could be a problem when you're a light sleeper. Breakfast was not included in the price so we didn't eat in the hotel but that's not a problem because there are so many options (and cheaper) just around the corner. Amenities were fine - twin room with single and double bed, kettle and complimentary tea in the room, bathtub, hairdryer, safety deposit box etc. Everything was clean even if maybe a little tired-looking. We went in February, so heating and warm water were important and both were perfectly adequate. The Irish dance show that takes place in the hotel bar every night at 9 is a very nice bonus and definitely worth seeing - you don't need to book a dinner table for that, can just sit in the bar and enjoy. Staff are all nice, check-in and check-out smooth. Recommended.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Dublin's best gems are just around the corner: Queen of Tarts cafe in Cow's Lane and Leo Burdock fish&chips across the street in Werburgh Street. Both are a must!

Great location

This hotel was situated right on the edge of the Temple Bar area of Dublin but also pretty central to several tourist destinations. Also, there is a Dublin Bus stand just outside which made getting around a cinch. The sightseeing buses also picked up right across the street. I would definitely recommend this hotel for those interested in both sights and nightlife. The staff were very friendly and courteous and the rooms were clean and offered all the basic amenities. The hotel restaurant offered a set 3 course dinner each night which we did not partake in. The only downside we found was that you can hear lots if activity and creaking from other rooms.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Definitely invest in the Dublin bus freedom pass if you plan on staying more than one day. It was cost effective and included transport to and from airport. I would also recommend the Dublin pass for multiple day stay as it includes entry into almost every attraction in the city and you can go in once a day to each place ie you could visit Guinness storehouse every day of your trip with free entry. Great value in both of them and the bus stop is right next to the hotel!
