    Historical Traveler Reviews Arlington Hotel Temple Bar Dublin

    Very pleasant and well located

    from

    Visited June 2004. Very centrally located a short walk from everywhere. Room was at the back of the hotel, quite quiet and spacious. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Only drawback is that it attracts a few groups on stag parties or the like so can be a little noisy. Nevertheless, I'd go back.

    Best Location!!

    from

    Really well located hotel opposite dublin castle. Good breakfast and one minute walk from Temple bar. I found this hotel to have all the essential ingredients for a great break in Dublin!

    Great hotel

    from

    have just returned from a 2 night weekend break at parliament hotel.

    great location,great room, noisy but if you choose to stay in this area it is to be expected. the staff were friendly and polite, food was good and bar staff very good

    Worst hotel EVER!!

    from

    Stayed here in May 2002. The only good thing to say is it's a great location and we had a nice little room. Everything else was a horror--we were on the second floor--there is a bar downstairs. The walls and floor VIBRATED from the noise and music until about three a.m. Even though we had a nonsmoking room, smoke wafted throughout the halls and into our room, presumably from the bar. I finally got to sleep after they closed the bar, only to be awoken by the morning staff at 7 a.m., virtually yelling at each other as they conversed, slamming doors and clanging bottles. They insisted in using the hallway outside our door as a lounge and transit area. The second night was a repeat of the first. DO NOT STAY HERE unless you are deaf and you love the smell of stale cigarette smoke!!

    Parliment hotel

    from

    I took my girlfriend to ireland for her 29Th Birthday, stayed at the heart of templebar at the parliment hotel, The hotel was fine the staff great and when i requested a room move because of traffic noise we were moved without any fuss, the room service people even moved our luggage, this hotel was clean and pleasent, on the downside the advertised full Irish breakfast was a let down, i have stayed in B&b throughout Ireland where the breakfast would set you up for the day, the breakfast at the parliment just about put you on to lunch time.

    so If anybody from the parliment reads this, sort your breakfast out to make your service complete

    Great Place to Stay

    from

    I am pretty surprised with some of the reviews on this page...I stayed at the Parliament last February and I loved it. We booked our room through an Internet travel site and we were unhappy with our first room. The staff was great and moved us into another larger room right away. The breakfast was great and you cannot beat the location. Don't get me wrong, it's not the Ritz, but if you are going to see Dublin (not the inside of a hotel room) than this hotel is perfect. You are in walking distance to everything and the restaurants in the Temple Bar are awesome. Great place -- going back this year and staying there again!

    Very disappointed in the Parliament Hotel, Dublin

    from

    I stayed in the Parliament hotel with my partner for four nights after Christmas this year, 2003. We were very disappointed - despite having put in a request for a double room, non-smoking, we were given a twin room / smoking. The only alternative was to take a single room with a double bed. The room was tiny, as was the bathroom. Although it was a non-smoking room, a smokey smell lingered throughout the whole hotel.

    We had no TV remote control and the water in the shower was cold on day 2!The breakfast room is in the basement, without any windows or view.

    While we were having breakfast on our first morning, one of the cleaning staff walked through the dining area with a bag of rubbish.

    Tasteless........On our last night we were kept awake from 2.00-3.30 am by the sound of drunken youths on the street outside. Nightmare.When we checked out, we were not asked whether we had enjoyed our stay.Definitely not value for money - we wont be staying there again.....

    Won't go back

    from

    good location.the receptionist could have made an effort to smile.asked for a wake up call ,which never came.thank god i woke in time for the train.breakfast was nice,but i won't be going back there.

    Nice looking, good location but noisy

    from

    I stayed in the Parliament hotel mid August 2003 after my stay in the Grafton Capital. That was a mistake. The Parliament is in Temple Bar and I heard it would be noisy but I was not prepared for the noise and distractions I had. Glass breaking outside my window constantly. The staff seemed confused and one morning I was bothered by house cleaning as early as 8am. Even after they left me alone I could here them chatting outside in the hall for hours.The hotel is modern which seemed nice but it lacked comfort.The breakfast was not as good as the Grafton Capiatal and felt very awkward as it was in their bar and resturaunt which had no natural light. Early in the morning it seemed like a dungeon.I wouldn't go back there since I only stayed one night and I have these many complaints.

    Not bad plus a great location

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Paliament Hotel on 08/28/03 on the night before we left Ireland. The hotel was perfectly adequate and would stay there again. The room was quite large compared to others in Ireland and was neat and clean. The bathroom was small but also clean. The staff working at the front desk were pleasant and very helpful. We were leaving too early to have the included breakfast so they made sure that there was coffee, juice, and toast ready for us in the lobby at 6:30 AM. They also directed us to a great Italian restaurant near by. The one thing which is both a neagative and a positive is the location. It has a downtown location near Temple Bar and a few minutes walk to Grafton Street which was quite nice for getting around. But once we made it from the pubs back to our room, the street noise was a little loud and woke me several times during the night. I recommend requesting a room on the higher floors away from the main street.

    Barney and a costume

    A travel blog entry by lisaajane on Jul 07, 2014

    ... Back in January, I put in an application to perform on the wee mini stage at EJC this months...just for the laughs.  Honestly, I hadn't trained in a year, and I had no costume so I was putting it in just so I could say that I did.  But I got an email last night.  And now I need to find a costume...fit for being the first act on stage on Opening Night at EJC 2014! How that happened I'm not sure, but how I am going to find a costume is the bit I am ...

We headed straight back to the hostel, where we showed off our new baby to the receptionist and ended up getting our other guitar down and getting the hostel guitar out and had a bit of a jam session in the lobby with an Irish girl who was staying there as well, Larisa. We played some covers together, and had a little singalong session and jammed out Lady Gaga's 'Paparazzi' of all songs, as Larisa sang. After a couple of ...

There were so many people on the little Ha'Penny Bridge I was afraid it would collapse! The tour ended about 30 minutes late (because of aaallll the extra details about the rebellion provided by John) by the General Post Office. Dennis had to bail early to return our rental car to the airport ...

    ... way we saw the Guinness brewery, but opted our of a tour. We returned to the hostel so that I could make a phone call for my first of two interviews. Afterwards we got some dinner, then joined in on the public crawl. I was pleased because the crawl was much better here than it had been in Krakow. We went to the pub where PS I Love You was filmed, so we acted like tourists and took a photo. We met some nice people and had a good night overall.
