In February 2014, I (in my late twenties) stayed at Central Hotel Dublin for two nights during a combined business/leisure trip. Central Hotel Dublin is located in the city center of Dublin, not far from the Temple Bar quarter. You can reach all major sights in less than 30 minutes on foot (except from maybe the Guinness Storehouse which is...

I ended up here at a sudden change of plans. Got a room overlooking their restaurant's ancient ventilation system which kept me up well after midnight. The room didn't have a ceiling lamp, but only 3 poor table shades. Windows didn't shut properly, so cold wind and noise were an issue. During the 2nd and last night I had to...

I got dumped by my original hotel ( due to a booking issue through a website). The front desk staff was very nice. We got into our room. It was clean. The shower had mold in it 😳. It is a little dated. And kind of noisy. St pat's weekend what could it get annoyed about! Shower is a lil...

The staff was extremely helpful; this was our first trip to Ireland and we were a little overwhelmed. The rooms were comfortable, complete with tea and biscuits. The only thing that could have made it better was the shower faucet. We could not adjust it so showers were burning hot. Also, it was hard to sleep Thursday and Friday night...

Ideal location in the heart of Dublin, in the hustle and bustle of the lively Exchequer St/George St. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. Reception was warm and friendly and would def stay again for a night on the town.

My parents had stayed here before, but it was actually my first time. I found it great: the rates are very reasonable for someplace so charming. The location is perfect, stand at the front door and you have Grafton Street to your left, with Templebar behind you. The interior - such as the furniture in the room - was lovely...

I've stayed in this hotel many times over the past 5 years. Being honest, there is a lot wrong with this hotel but for my money, there's more right with it than wrong. Pros: Its location is second to none in the heart of my favourite part of Dublin city centre. It is very reasonably priced - especially considering its...

This hotel is an old hotel and the floors creak, however, it is a part of old Dublin and quirky. Ideal location near Grafton St, central for shops, restaurants, pubs, theatre etc., you can't go wrong really. Didn't hear any noise but then again we were partying 'til late ourselves. Good value.

My three adult daughters and I spent one night at the Central Hotel last September (Arthurs Day, 2013). We had two rooms on different floors and areas of the hotel. Thanks to the reviews here on TA, I had an accurate idea of the pros and cons of the hotel when I chose it for our first night in Dublin....

The Hotel is great because of its perfect location. It's close to everything, really clean and I paid a low price. The staff was not particularly outgoing, but they were helpful when needed. The beds were very comfortable. The room was warm. The furniture is old but decent. As I had been told, the street outside is quite noisy, because...
