Frayed at the edges, but still a find

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 16, 2011

The Paramount has an enviable location, just at the edge of Temple Bar. Thus, the block is somewhat free of ruinous, barking drunks, but the hotel remains at the heart of the action.

With it's wood grain finishes and black and white artwork, the hotel comes off as a bit of an Art Deco bachelor pad. It's New York in the thirties, The Chrysler Building, anti-communist propaganda material, and Ayn Rand book jacket all in one little package. Think I'm over-stating it? Just sally on over to their website and see for yourself.

I would bet this place was a real hotspot in the nineties. Well, it's certainly showing some wear and tear, but they've been around long enough that the aesthetic is now back in fashion, and my kudos to the proprietors, for that.

Unique Quality: This three star stay was far better than some four stars I've had the displeasure of paying for. Friendly helpful service, good beds, excellent included breakfast, LARGE room and free wifi. I mean sure, I hate to see nicks in a headboard or wallpaper beginning to peel at the seam just as much as the next guy. But, this was far outweighed by the pluses, and I would not hesitate to book The Paramount on future Dublin stays.

Directions: on the edge of Temple Bar, just downhill from Dublin Castle

Good hotel with good location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 13, 2008

This hotel is quite nice, but most importantly right in the middle of town. You can see the entrance to the castle from the door, and it's very much on the beginning of the temple bar. However, I rarely heard any noise late at night, mind you I was there in the weekdays. The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

Unique Quality: You must enter from the rear, the front (on Parliament Street) has just a huge sign.

Directions: It's on the western edge of the Temple Bar
