This townhouse is in the heart of drunken evening noises. The rooms are cramped, cobwebs in the corners, no fresh air without exposing yourself to the dirty alley. The creaky floors made me cringe, the bed was lumpy, the furniture was overly worn and the overall service not that friendly. They asked me for my money upfront, something that has...

My friend and I had a great stay in The Townhouse. We both had rooms at the back of the hotel with balconies overlooking the garden. Very pleasant rooms, compact, but with modern fittings and an excellent shower. The staff are a real asset and very informative about the city, tours and transport options. The location is central and the...

I totally recommend the Townhouse, the room was cute and comfy, it was clean, there is lot of choice for breakfast and the staff is really helpful in planning daytrips around Ireland, also it is 10 minutes walk from Temple Bar and in front of airport bus station and near a train station. Great, really!

Hi KeyF31 Your beautiful accent still echoes through our Georgian corridors, it was such a pleasure to have you stay at The Townhouse Dublin City Centre, you have raised several key points of our product and service, our informative and helpful staff, our comfortable rooms and our central location. It is such a reward for us when a genuine guest...

Very disappointing, really just a glorified-hostel. Yes, the hotel was near the centre, yes it had 'secure' off-street parking (if you didn't mind handing over your keys to reception to allow the car to be moved), but otherwise there was little to commend this place. The room was hot, very hot actually, even though the preceding week had been just...

The good: the staff were very friendly and helpful all around; good tips about visiting Dublin and the book contained a pages long narrative about how to wind your way through the city on the cheap. The room was small but nice; the bed high quality. It was a bit stuffy; Ireland isn't big on AC but at least a...

When were arrived at the BnB we found the rooms to be very nice but a bit small. The first room we had overlooked the common area and was too noisy for us. We approached the front desk and they happily moved us to a quieter room but unfortunately with no AC we found ourselves checking out after one night....

I got this hotel by pure luck on a busy Saturday night.. Clean bed, old tv and shared bathroom, not exactly high standards but did the trick for a last min stay. Did not sleep very well as the noise is just hurrendous, pretty sure there is no double glazing and doors slamming all the time. Breakfast was ok.. and...

Check-in was fabulous. I arrived early, and they kindly stored my luggage while I went to meet some friends. The receptionist had a great sense of humour, and made me feel welcomed. I was upgraded free of charge to a doble room, even though I booked a single. The first day at breakfast (which was included for booking straight with...

Its Dublin the people are very friendly and the staff are no different and you have some craic with them even as you walk in the door. The room, facing Lower Gardiner Street, was noisy, small but was clean warm and had all that was expected. The en suite bathroom could do with some work, a quick shower as the...

The staff were very friendly and helpful it the lobby. The rooms are quiet small although what one would expect in Europe. Importantly the room was clean and the linen was fresh. The hotel is conveniently located, close to bus stops and well placed if you like exploring on the hoof. Our room was located close to the Wifi lounge...
