    Temple Bar Stay

    Amazing service as always. The upkeep and cleanliness was great. I love the centralized location of this hotel and the walking distance to attractions such as Guinness and Jameson tours.

    The hotel lobby was stunning and the room was great. Also, the location was perfect for being out in the temple bar while also being able to escape the constant busy.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Room was comfortable, staff were friendly Very impressed overall. I'll be back However breakfast was only ok and expensive, there was a group of us so it wasnt just one dish that was sub par. Pancakes were drenched in compote and became sickly after a few bites, the toast was hard as rock, there was wilted leaves on the side of the plate of the omlette. The service by the staff was good. It was 20e for breakfast. I'll be having breakfast elsewhere when i stay again.
