Stayed four nights in this lovely, well-located guesthouse. My first room, which was in the back of the building (as I'd requested quiet), was quite warm during some unusually hot summer days. (The sun would shine in, I believe, and add heat - no AC.) After one night they were kind enough to move me to a front room which,...

Stayed in the Waterloo following a Christmas party. No problems sleeping (but had one or two beers). Would recommend asking for room at back of house if a light sleeper. House its self was really well kept and room was big and comfortable. Excellent value. Located in upper class Dublin 15mins walk from St Stephens Green. Plenty of high end...

Location of hotel is excellent. Rooms are very small, little shabby. Rest of home is nice, well maintained. Breakfasts are good. Has elevator. Dublin is fabulous place to visit and this B&B is well positioned.

We loved staying our 2 nights here. What was once 2 beautiful Georgian homes is now enjoyed by many a lucky traveller. This place exudes charm and elegance. Our room was massive with beautiful artwork, stunning original fireplace and a most comfy bed complete with wooden headboard and matching wardrobe. We had a bath to relax in after our somewhat...

We had to do some research at UCD & this lovely B&B proved ideal. We caught the 39A bus just down the street, which took us direct to the campus in a matter of minutes (stopping in Starbucks for a quick coffee on the run first). The Waterloo House is situated in a very nice, quiet, tree-lined neighborhood not far...

Waterloo House was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of a larger hotel. Our room was warm and comfortable. The bed and pillows were first class. The place was spotless and the breakfast delicious. Convenient location within walking distance of town/RDS. Parking was a bit of a mission but this was due to an inconsiderate parker who refused...

I was staying at the Waterloo for one night with a colleague. The room was small but pleasant clean and had a shower which I prefer. Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast. From a businessman view a great change from my normal corporate hostelry. I'd go back. Good choice of eatery's at the bottom of the road.

I spend about 100 bed nights in hotels / guest houses each year and the following five things are fierce important to me. 1. Location. 2. Character. 3. Comfort. 4. Parking. 5. Breakfast. Waterloo House scores top marks in each of the above five. It's at the heart of Dublins business, sporting and social life. There are excellent hotels within...

Got a good rate for this hotel using HotelTonight. It is in a great location near good restaurants (Bloom bistro) and shops. It is also a pleasant walk into the town centre. Good off street parking is available.

I didn't expect to be staying overnight in Dublin but lack of space on ships conspired against me. Came across this little gem on one of the booking web sites. What a lovely place in a large traditional building close to pubs and restaurants. Met the owner very nice lady and front of house receptionist a lovely Polish lady both...
