Very disappointing, really just a glorified-hostel. Yes, the hotel was near the centre, yes it had 'secure' off-street parking (if you didn't mind handing over your keys to reception to allow the car to be moved), but otherwise there was little to commend this place. The room was hot, very hot actually, even though the preceding week had been just... More

The good: the staff were very friendly and helpful all around; good tips about visiting Dublin and the book contained a pages long narrative about how to wind your way through the city on the cheap. The room was small but nice; the bed high quality. It was a bit stuffy; Ireland isn't big on AC but at least a... More

When were arrived at the BnB we found the rooms to be very nice but a bit small. The first room we had overlooked the common area and was too noisy for us. We approached the front desk and they happily moved us to a quieter room but unfortunately with no AC we found ourselves checking out after one night.... More

I got this hotel by pure luck on a busy Saturday night.. Clean bed, old tv and shared bathroom, not exactly high standards but did the trick for a last min stay. Did not sleep very well as the noise is just hurrendous, pretty sure there is no double glazing and doors slamming all the time. Breakfast was ok.. and... More

Check-in was fabulous. I arrived early, and they kindly stored my luggage while I went to meet some friends. The receptionist had a great sense of humour, and made me feel welcomed. I was upgraded free of charge to a doble room, even though I booked a single. The first day at breakfast (which was included for booking straight with... More

Its Dublin the people are very friendly and the staff are no different and you have some craic with them even as you walk in the door. The room, facing Lower Gardiner Street, was noisy, small but was clean warm and had all that was expected. The en suite bathroom could do with some work, a quick shower as the... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful it the lobby. The rooms are quiet small although what one would expect in Europe. Importantly the room was clean and the linen was fresh. The hotel is conveniently located, close to bus stops and well placed if you like exploring on the hoof. Our room was located close to the Wifi lounge... More

The Townhouse is a real taste of Dublin. It's located a short walk away from Temple Bar and the main shopping area, but not smack in the middle of it, which was good for us. The staff at the Townhouse was supremely helpful in every way, particularly when we ran into issues with noise outside our rooms due to the... More

Very very helpful reception staff and decent rooms. Moaning about the rooms here would be like complaining Harrods prices are expensive. For the price you get decent room, comfortable bed, good location and friendly staff, what else do you need? Would stay ahain

We booked well in advance by their website, but when we arrived they had overbooked and had no rooms. They even lied about this and mentioned a "flooding" as reason for them having no room. Really !
