We have travelled back home today after staying here for 2 nights. We arrived a couple of hours before check in to leave our suitcases however we were informed that they had a room available for us which was great! It was located on the first floor and was comfortable & spacious for the two of us. It was very...

The location of this hotel is perfect. It close enough to Temple Bar so the walk isn't painful (literally about 3 minutes) and that there is no overspill of noise. That is however if you don't end up in the room we stayed in (room 107). Although we avoided noise from Temple bar, we had the pleasure of some kind...

This hotel is very well situated at the beginning of the Temple Bar section of Dublin. You can rapidly access the action in the bars, the restaurants and the street, but you don't hear the commotion back in your room. The room we had was big enough for a couple and confortable. The problem we had was with the bathroom,...

If you need somewhere centrally located in Dublin then it's worth checking this hotel for offers. It's in Temple Bar, a couple of minutes walk from Dublin Castle & slap bang in the middle of restaurants, bars & Dublin's nightlife. The reception staff were super friendly & helpful.

I write this as I'm getting ready to check out from room 107. We booked this hotel as it's location is close to Vicar Street music venue which we were attending last night for a concert. This charming little hotel is within walking distance to Templebar and O'Connell Street. It's close to not only Vicar Street but The Olympia is...

Lovely hotel right in the middle of everything, close to Temple Bar. The staff were friendly and helpful. The ground floor has its own restaurant which is also open to non-residents. It was okay for the excellent breakfast but we chose to eat elsewhere in the evenings. Not much left of what was once a very historic street, one of...

Quiet and strategical position, at only 5 mins walking frm downtown. Easy to reach from Dublin airport with 747 Airlink bus whose stop is very near to the hotel. WIFI working OK. Our room was an internal one at 3rd floor. No noise at all.

We stayed at the Handels Hotel for 6 nights and it was a perfectly placed just 5 minutes walk to the bar district and shopping. Close enough for easy access, far enough for peace and quiet when you wanted it. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite. I've travelled extensively in Europe and...

The room & bathroom were very clean and the reception staff were friendly. The bar/restaurant was quite another story, the bar itself was dirty and the food was beyond awful, I was served sour sausages in my breakfast and the poor waiter/waitress though apologetic, didn't seem surprised, it must be a regular occurrence, the white wine I got with dinner...
