The hotel is in a great area. You can walk to everything. We were in Dublin with our four college kids over Thanksgiving break. Everyone had a great time. The hotel was very clean. The staff of the hotel was very helpful and very friendly. I would recommend it.

Me and my girlfriend have just returned from a one night stay in Dublin and the hotel was perfect for what we needed. Great city centre location which didn't take much finding. Even though we arrived before the 2pm check in time stated the reception staff were more than happy to show us to our room. Apart from there being... More

The hotel is located towards the end of Temple Bar, but it's in a great, central location, making it ideal for sightseeing. But it's also located on a quiet street, so you don't have to deal with the late night noise that you do with some hotels in the area. The staff are also very friendly and accommodating. I would...

The perfect location for a weekend stay in Dublin - on the edge of Temple Bar so not noisy but close enough to get around everywhere. Our room was nice, although would have been nice to have tissues in the room, and we had some sweets/crumbs in one of the beds which we had to get changed. But the staff... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in May 2016. We picked this hotel because of the location and the reasonable price. We arrived early and our room was not ready. The staff was helpful and stored the luggage for us. The room was ready after we came back from lunch. The room was a decent size and the... More

I visited the Handels Hotel Temple Bar with my family November 2016. They should stay there two nights, I should only stay for one night. Called and wrote a month before to get an extra bed in one of our two pre-booked double rooms. Not possible in any way, so we had to book an extra room. When we arrived... More

Location is excellent if you want to be close to the city centre: pubs, restaurants, shops. The hotel itself is not very polished but it is convenient and clean. The staff at the reception were friendly when checking in and out. The room was smallish but not too cramped. We were on a higher floor so not too much noise... More
