      Historical Traveler Reviews Arlington Hotel Temple Bar Dublin

      Very pleasant and well located


      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!!


      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


      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!!


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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.

      ... in a hostel, hotels and private rooms will be luxurious and a privilege! I went down to the hotel restaurant to have lunch and check out what I could do around the hotel. I ended up mini Skyping one of my Brit friends and I'm sure I had some weird looks from other families. That lifted my spirits and nothing could prevent me from trying to do something today! Except the rain. I walked to a giant tesco and bought some cookies ...

      ... movie that was offered, but who are we kidding--this thing was soft porn. Lots of women on women--not great on a family flight. HA! Martin was our very informative taxi driver to the apartment. We hailed Martin after a failed attempt at a pay phone call from the airport to our apartment owner (rookie American tourists!) Martin was very nice and even told us about his time living in the US. He was a big guy though and the whole time I kept wondering how does this ...

      ... front of me abruptly swiveled around, his expression one of deep concern. "Are you ok?" he asked.

      "Yes," I said, surprised, "I was just clearing my throat."

      "Good girl," he said, praise usually reserved for dogs and partially-potty-trained toddlers. Smiling now, he turned back around to continue his walk.

      Later that day, I was leaving the Arts Block (the building where I have most of my classes) and struggling to put my orange rain jacket ...

      ... We actually knew how to get back because my friend Taylor had a GPS and Alison had a map! It was a nice change :) Now we are just sitting in our hotel room and I'm blogging. I am rooming with Alison, Taylor, and Nicole. Some of our other friends came over (Tessa, Kody, Matt, Taylor, and En'Ante) and we have just been hanging out and we got pizza and chips (which are actually fries). Alison and I also did the Carry Out dance which was actually so fun. It was a long day but really cool ...

      ... tubing it back into central London and wandering around for a little while we decided to head into one of the latest serving places in town, the Angus Steakhouse, of which there is one on practically every street corner. We were pleasantly surprised, with great steak, yummy dessert, and many laughs over a shared bottle of wine. It was then time to hug each other goodbye for the last time in the tube station, as she was due to head back to Australia for a few days, and I was off to Dublin!
