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...

This hotel is the best in Temple bar and very good value for money. The rooms are modern and clean with a fridge and a well stocked tea tray. The biscuits, sweets and bottled water was a lovely touch. We will be back.

We were staying for 3 nights and absolutely enjoyed our stay in the hotel. It is perfectly located, only 5 minutes walk to get into the most busy part of Dublin (Temple Bar) with all its pubs and restaurants and about 10 minutes walk to all the main shopping streets. But the hotel is very quiet so we could have...

Hotel was above expectations, friendly staff, nice breakfast. Fridge in the room is a pleasant surprice - it was not mentioned when booking. Easy access to city attractions, Temple bar area. Busstop to airport is just around the corner.

The location was excellent for restaurants and bars. Also we were getting a ferry from Dublin port and the proximity was brilliant. The rooms were very well equipped and comfortable. We will be returning here as it was the nicest hotel we have stayed in for a long time. Thanks.

Best hotel in Temple Bar, you are close enough to walk to all bars/restaurants but it's further away enough to be quiet when you want to sleep. Rooms were 5* such a lovey room, comfy bed, lovely bar downstairs, staff were so polite and helpful. Couldn't have stayed in a better hotel.

Reviewed 15 January 2017

We had a top (4th) floor room at the back of the hotel, no noise from the street whatsoever. Facilities could not be faulted, comfortable bed, excellent shower, WiFi, Music station and TV. Far enough away from the bustle of Temple Bar (5 minutes stroll) makes this hotel an ideal base for a short vacation. Recommended.

Reception staff were very polite and friendly! The room was clean and cozy with comfortable bed. Complementary tea set with biscuits and bottled water, which were nice.

This hotel was perfect! My wife and I were honeymooning and wanted to be close to the action in Dublin, but were happy to be able to sleep at night without it being terribly loud.
