Great Location.

Posted Aug 7, 2014
This Hotel is exactly where you want to be location wise. It's about a 30 sec to 2 min walk to Auld Dubliner, & Temple Bar pubs. It's about a 5 min walk to Grafton St where the shopping is. Hotel is clean, their pub food is outstanding. Nightime FRI & SAT can be a bit noisey because its close proximation to the bar district. Good shower, and WiFi. It has the basics of what you would need for a home base.

The Blooms Hotel was so-so at best. The staff were not rude, but they were not friendly or terribly helpful either. The first night we arrived there was a building alarm going off a couple doors down the street. We left for dinner and didn't say anything, but when we came back from our evening out it was still going off so we politely asked if they could call the police or someone to see about getting it turned off but they said they couldn't do anything. The alarm continued all night and woke us up several times (even with the window shut, which made it stuffy in the room). Then upon check out I needed to walk my friend over to the bus to get to the airport and I was moving to another hotel - I said I would be gone less than 30 minutes but they still charged me 2 Euro per bag to hold my bags (4 Euro total) while I walked my friend to the bus. If I had been keeping them there all day I could understand, but we had stayed 3 nights and I was indeed gone less than 30 minutes. They still charged me. They are not a quiet place either. Being right in Temple Bar there are people out on the streets until 2am or 3am every night of the week (not just weekends). If you are looking for a quiet place to relax on your stay in Dublin this is not the place. The room seemed clean but the worst part about it was that the both me and my friend ended up with bug bites. The third person staying with us did not have them, but he was in a separate bed. I will be contacting the hotel about this.

Near the Temple Bar area of Dublin

Posted Jul 23, 2014
Pros: The convenient location.
Location: Near the Temple Bar, River Livey, pubs/restaurants, the main cathedrals - convenient to everything including bus stops.
The hotel was sufficient for our needs - clean with very helpful staff. I think younger people would really appreciate the location of this hotel as it's around the corner from the Temple Bar (pedestrian street) with all the restaurants, pubs, music. Because of the location, it was noisy well into the wee hours of the morning.

Nice Hotel

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Very clean, staff was very helpful.
Cons: The shower is very small and confining.
Location: Temple bar area is full of bars and restaurants. There is entertainment in the streets. Close to shopping.
The hotel was nice, everything was clean. There is a bar in the bottom level and the patrons can be loud on the street sometimes. Hotel is in Temple Bar which puts you in the right place for the night life. Within walking distance of shopping and restaurants.

In Temple Bar area.

Posted Jun 26, 2014
Right on the edge of Temple Bar area; however, room was tiny and noisy. This was last hotel stayed at during 12 day trip to Ireland and staff were not very friendly or helpful - especially compared with other hotels we had been to. Temple Bar area is overpriced compared to other parts of Dublin and Ireland. Singles and young couples would be best suited for a stay here. Families and older would probably find better accomadation north of the Temple Bar area.

Good Location - Rooms a bit cramped

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Update facilities
Location: Located close to most torusit attractions
The rooms were a bit cramped. Bathroom was good, roomy and well presented if a little dated. -Had problems with television -. staff were attentive to trying to get it fixed, and provided a small discount for inconvenience. Recent study on EU costs shows Ireland is fifth most expensive place in Europe. All things considered this hotel was not bad value for money.

In the heart of pub area

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: Central location
Cons: Attitude of some, not all, staff
Location: Minutes from Trinity College with The Book of Kells, the Liffey and the main shopping streets and pups galore.
The hotel staff varied widely from pleasant to irritable and although the room was clean and the linen pristine the fittings in the bathroom were tired i.e. cracked wash basin and chipped bath. On the plus side location perfect for sight seeing was good. On the whole perfect for young people who are out late partying. Perhaps a bit too near the pups and clubs for the older generation.
