Arlington Hotel - 2 Thumbs down

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 19, 2008

My husband, our two sons (2 years old and 5 months old) and I arrived at the Arlington on Thursday, April 10, 2008 at about 10 am. The hotel was easy to find, but the airport bus stops about 4 or 5 blocks away. The hotel couldn't let us check in early but they did take our bags and told us to come back at 2. The desk staff were cold and always seemed frazzled. After waiting a while after we came back at 2 we were shown to a large but very tired and dated room. The bathroom was also very dated and the shower had mildew. We asked if any other room might be available, and we were shown a room that had a modern bathroom but otherwise was very small (just one bed). We declined that room (as we were paying for a triple room) and were told we could move the next day to a different room with a better bathroom. They told us to leave our luggage in our current room and they would bring it up to our new room at 1. When we came back at 1 they said it would be 5 more minutes. In reality we had to wait an hour until we were allowed into the new room and while it was a bit more updated it was rather small and had the exact same albeit slightly-less-gross bathroom as our first room. The staff were not at all friendly, children were not allowed to watch the "free" Irish dancing show, the food was bland and it was certainly not worth the 272 euros we spent there for two nights (including breakfast.) This is a very tired hotel, across the river from Temple Bar, and there are plenty of other hotels to chose from, so I would definitely not recommend The Arlington. Not at all up to the standards of a metropolitan hotel, more in line with a very low budget lodge if you're looking for an alternative to sleeping in a tent. The pictures on their website are totally misleading. (Except the lobby with the knight's armor - that's accurate.)

Directions: North side of the River Liffey

Best for Irish Entertainment

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2004

This hotel is very well placed for the Temple Bar area. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.

The rooms are of a pretty good standard and very comfortable. The entertainment in the evenings is second to none, lots of Irish singing and Dancing - a great night out to have during your stay, even if you are not staying in the hotel.

We paid the equivalent of US$320 for two persons for two nights.
