We enjoy our visit to Dublin nice city and lots of fun. The Hotel is very good, good staff and very good location only few minutes walk to the middle of the city. We liked very much the connections to oscars bar and very nice staff there too.

The bed mattress was hard. No padding at all. The sink has separate hot and cold so it's hard to ever use the hot water. The taps are so short, it's annoying anyway. The shower curtain was lined up with the inside of the tub. This means the curtain is touching you whenever I'm taking a shower. I have broad...

We stayed in Handels Hotel Temple Bar in our February city break to Dublin with my family. The rooms are very spacious and beds are comfortable but some parts of interior is in in need of re-decoration and repair. In particular, some parts of taps in our bathroom were either missing or falling off. There were mould marks around the...

Went here for the breakfast in the morning.Nice selection of continental and full Irish. The dining room is upstairs. The seating is a bit quirky,looks like old cinema seats. Food was very tasty and good value for 10euro in total.

Booked night before just to stay in town for a night out with friends. It's a fantastic location and the staff are super friendly and helpful. Parked over in Christchurch as they don't have parking but I couldn't fault them on anything else. If you want to be in the heart of Dublin for a night out stay here.

Handels is a great little hotel in a superb location. The room we stayed in was clean and modern with a lovely view of the cathedral. It's within walking distance to the famous temple bar area, O'Connell Street for shopping and the Teeling Whiskey distillery (well worth a visit). The airport bus stops just around the corner and there are...

In brief... location central and accessible but not noisy or unsafe. Clean and comfortable and friendly helpful staff. Good value when Dublin can be costly, but you need to avoid dates when major sporting events or concerts are on.

I have to say I'm quite disappointed by my trip to Dublin, but that was more the city rather than the hotel itself. The hotel is in a great location, right in temple bar and within walking distance to a lot of attractions. The hotel charged a 113€ deposit which I thought was completely ridiculous and the high test deposit...

I have stayed in Handels a few times and have always enjoyed my time there. Rooms are big enough, beds comfortable and room lighting good. The shower this time was fantastic, a huge head and very powerful. Towels good and adequate sized. The staff are always friendly and welcoming which is very important. The location is good, on the edge...
