This is a two bedroomed apartment in Temple Bar, there are two double beds and a sofa bed so it could sleep 6. The kitchen is small but well equipped, the bathroom is a reasonable size with a bath and shower over. The lounge/dining area is sufficient. The apartment is warm, the beds are comfortable as is the sofabed. The...

Location was great. Room was average - this hotel is great for place to rest your head. Bells ringing from the Church on a Sunday is a bit noisy. Staff were lovely. As I got a deal on the day I got excellent price for room so was happy!

Handel's Hotel is the ideal place to stay for touring Dublin. It is literally tucked into a corner just off the beaten path 2 minutes from Christ Church Cathedral. It's a pleasant 10 minute stroll down to the Temple Bar district and about the same to Guinness Brewery. The hotel has comfortable clean rooms, roomy ensuite bathrooms, and free wifi....

Stayed a couple nights while in the Temple Bar area. Loved the location close enough to the action but a quiet street. Clean and very well appointed. Just a short walk to the bus. The only negative was that Christ Church Bells chime every hour. So if you choose to get a bit of fresh air and have the window...

Amy was there to greet us with a friendly smile and hold the bags until we could check in allowing us to go out right away. The location was perfect just half a block from Christ Church Cathedral. We could walk just about anywhere including Jameson Distillery, Ha Penny Bridge and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Located in Temple Bar where there...

The staff are help and friendly. I can't comment on the breakfast, with is in the adjoining Oscar's Restaurant (there is an interior door connecting the hotel to the restaurant), but...

Arrived at the hotel to find a lovely cozy clean room. Excellent facilities and very central location. I was genuinely so impressed with the level of service from the staff, in particular the two girls in reception. They went above and beyond at all times and are a fantastic front of house representative of the hotel. Will 100% revisit for...

Hotel is in great location in Temple Bar area close to the Liffey river and many bridges, shops, restaurants, etc. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Hotel is clean and rooms are small but comfortable although separate hot and cold in bathroom sink is awkward. Breakfast is adequate but we ate out otherwise.
