Reviewed 3 November 2016

We stayed there two nights and we very happy with the room, the staff, and especially the breakfast room. It is glassed in and overlooks the garden. The breakfasts are cooked to order and quite good. We could walk to the local pubs and restaurants quite easily from there.

Room Tip: There are elevators to all floors

Waterloo House was a very nice place to stay, handy to many restaurants and bus stop very close by. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. Room was a little small, but comfortable and clean. Maybe a bit overpriced.

Have to take off a star for the breakfast and room was so hot. I had the Irish Breakfast once and the egg was so over cooked the yolk was in chunks. The sausage, meat and black/white pudding were dry yet greasy. I went to my room and promptly vomited.
Location is good a nice walk to St Stephen's Green.

Good clean hotel in a good location, with friendly staff.....but over priced @ 179 per night for what you get, the rooms are small with squeaky floor boards and it's more like a nice B&B than a 4 star Hotel.

Stayed: October 2016

I stayed at Waterloo House for 4 nights, and would happily stay there the next time I'm in Dublin. It's a 2-minute walk to the restaurants, cafes and amenities of Baggott Street, and about 15-20 minutes from St Stephen's Green and Grafton Street. There's also a bus stop right outside and taxis are easy to come by. The staff was lovely and very helpful, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The place was recommended by the proprietor of another B&B that happened to book that busy weekend, and I'm very glad she told me about it.
