Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Handels Hotel for 6 nights and it was a perfectly placed just 5 minutes walk to the bar district and shopping. Close enough for easy access, far enough for peace and quiet when you wanted it. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite. I've travelled extensively in Europe and...

The room & bathroom were very clean and the reception staff were friendly. The bar/restaurant was quite another story, the bar itself was dirty and the food was beyond awful, I was served sour sausages in my breakfast and the poor waiter/waitress though apologetic, didn't seem surprised, it must be a regular occurrence, the white wine I got with dinner...

Very friendly and helpful staff. The bedrooms were comfortable and very clean. Good size T.V. and a radio in room. The bar was very nice and the menu was very good. I was just sorry we did not get a chance to sample the food. Would recommend this hotel.

The hotel was very handy for exploring central Dublin and very clean. Room size was ok and was quiet as well. I would recommend this to others wanting a good value hotel in the middle of Dublin. Great visit

This was my second business trip to this wonderful hotel which is centrally located. Convenient parking at the nearby Christchurch car-park. Great welcome and easy check in. Smal but very comfortable rooms with good matress and towels. It was good to have complementary water. You don't always get this in a 4 star hotel in Ireland! Will be returning soon....

I stayed in this hotel for only one night with a friend after we were in Belfast. I loved the decor in the lobby and in the room. The staff were super friendly and answered all my questions. We stayed in a twin room, and it was very clean with cute bedding. The location is really good. You're a little...

I stayed here a few months ago, big mistake, the staff are disgusting, unprofessional and lacking any social skills, they really scraped the bottom of the barrel finding these characters, the room decor is depressing and they turned off the hot water one morning as well, told the desk about it, and the response was just kind of so what....

It's a great location, lots to do and walking access to all of Temple Bar. However, for a family, it wasn't quite what I expected The pictures are a bit nicer than the apartment. It needs a bit of paint job and a little polish. Many of the lights didn't work and we weren't there long enough to call about...
