Nice hotel, good location
Arrived approx 1030am for a 4 night stay. Hotel looks after luggage until 3pm checkin time allowing us to make most of the day. Also stored it on our last day before we left in the afternoon. Room 327 was a little bit of a walk at far end of level 3 corridor but good thing meant we didn't get corridor traffic noise during our stay. The room itself was ideal for our needs- spacious enough not to feel couped, all necessary hotel mod cons, good strong shower, comfy bed and kept clean throughout our stay. View from the window wasn't fab but we weren't in Dublin to sit in a hotel! Bit of noise from blowers of some sort but didnt disturb our sleep even though i do sleep lightly. We had a few drinks throughout our stay in the pub but no food so cant comment on that. Meals we saw looked tasty though. Good Entertainment every evening that we stopped in drink before off to bed. Staff were polite and helpful throughout with bus numbers/topping up tea coffee when we ran short, sorting our luggage etc. Location wise it was ideal. Accessed by a bus that stopped on the bridge about 1 minute away. Temple bar area was a short walk away although plenty of other food places nearby as well. Bus links to attractions outside & across the bridge. Also plenty within walking distance of hotel. Overall this was just what we wanted, we would recommend and would visit again if/when we return to dublin.

not great, bad attitude of night manager,
The room was dated and dusty, but after a long afternoon of travelling from Galway we just wanted to get out and have fun, so we did in the welcoming bar downstairs. We informed reception about our early flight next day who booked us a taxi at 6am and arranged a take away breakfast which was nice. On returning to our room on the first floor after a few hours out in the City, it was extremely noisy from the entertainment downstairs - I couldn't understand after arranging a early taxi with a pre 6am wake up why we had been put in such a loud room. It was nearing midnight and I rang to ask what time the entertainment would stop in the bar so I could get my head around it, I was greeted with "you knew you were booking yourself into a hotel with music". I was really taken a back and upset by this and responded "yes I did but you knew when we checked in and arranged a taxi that we would have a very early start so don't understand why we have been placed in this room". My partner rang back to complain about this attitude as we paid 120Euro for this pleasure, we found out it was the night manager who had spoken to me like this. He offered us another room and we could leave our things in the existing room - this would have left us wondering about our possessions and had a worse night sleep than with earplugs in. The attitude of this manager was horrible to a 120 euro paying customer. Really disappointed with my stay, still awaiting apology from his manager and being ignored on email.

We stayed from the 28th to the 31st of May in room 410. The only thing I can say is the location of the hotel is great, right in the centre of the action. The trouble is the hotel's focus is to heavily biased at attracting passing trade for their bar, evening shows and Irish music/ dancing. The rooms were not air conditioned, and very tired and dated in decor. For example, there were no plug sockets by the bedside tables, the only two single sockets were located, 1) above the desk and 2) next to the kettle (which was screwed to the unit!!!). For a double room in modern times, there wasn't even enough sockets for today's travellers. Also because it was hot there was a fan in the room. Unfortunately it was so small it was ineffective (and took up a socket). Also, the bedroom area was roughly 15 feet square, yet the TV provided was no bigger than a 18" monitor. With about 10 poorly tuned channels that didn't provide anything other than a grainy picture, very poor for the modern or international traveller. As we were on the top floor the water pressure in the shower was intermittent and often the hot supply failed for a bit giving you bursts of freezing cold water. One other point, the King size bed was really two singles pushed together. The staff were OK and the breakfast and bar areas were always clean and well tended. So in summary, if it's hot, don't stay there and don't expect the rooms to be anywhere as good as the ground floor facilities.

Great hotel, unbeatable location!
We spent one night at the Arlington Hotel O'Connell Bridge after arriving in Dublin en route to Westport. We chose this hotel because of the location and it ended up being a great choice. If you want to be close to the action in Dublin, this location can't be beat. It's north of the river, so a tad quieter than being in the Temple Bar area, but just as convenient for accessing restaurants, pubs, shopping, and many tourist attractions. The room was basic, but clean and comfortable, which was fine for us. From the airport, the hotel is easily accessible from any of the city centre buses (both the 747 Dublin Bus and 700 Air Coach stop on O'Connell street, just around the corner from the hotel, although the 747 stop is closer). One huge perk that we didn't even consider when booking is that this hotel has fantastic amenities of its own. The hotel bar and restaurant are lively, with live music in the evenings. It is also the location of the Celtic Nights dinner and show, which hotel guests can take in at a reduced rate. We also took advantage of the hotel breakfast, which was great as well. We had a great stay and would definitely stay again when in Dublin!

Miserable stay in Arlington hotel
The hotel has a good location. The rooms are clean. The buffet breakfast was good and the staff serving the breakfast was kind and helpful. We stayed at the weekend and asked for a silent room (and got room in the top (4th) floor). According to European standards the hotel rooms are meant to be for relaxing and sleeping. However the hotel was EXTREMELY noisy. The modern techno music went all the way through the building and lasted until one or two o´clock on Saturday and Sunday morning. We even called the reception but they were not willing to help. They did not even ask to turn the Music to be a bit silent. We understand that people want to enjoy Music, but it has to in a separate area so that people can enjoy there stay in the hotel room. We payed about 180 euros per night for this terrible noise. The people in reception did not suggest to lower the room price. Our stay was not worth of this price.
