The Fleet Street Hotel
Ranked #59 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Booked this hotel based on location which is the only positive thing about it really. The exterior is drab, The reception is basic. The rooms are small & cramped. The bar doesnt exist & i'm still looking for the restaurant. Does not live up to online advertising.

Room Tip: book a different hotel

I must say that this was an impressive find in Dublin. Working in a hotel in my home city I know exactly what I want in a hotel - and where to find fault - but in this case I was very much impressed.

First impressions of the reception area were very good. It has beverage facilities, free easy-to-use wifi and the decor is impeccable and tasteful. The atmosphere was very calm.
Check-in was smooth, and I was kindly checked in despite having arrived early in the day.

Into room 116 I found a spacious room with en-suite. The décor again was of a high finish and included a high quality Philips TV (of a better quality then most hotels I’ve stayed in). The room was spotlessly clean and perfectly maintained.

Later in the day when I came back to sleep I two things stood out. 1. There was a sliding door inside the window so there was no noise from outside and 2. The mattress was the most comfortable mattress I have ever found in a hotel. In the morning I actually stripped the bed so I could find out what brand it is.

For single occupancy I paid €49 with breakfast as an optional extra. Most hotels in Dublin charge more for less, and given the high quality of Fleet Street Hotel and the fantastic location I know that I’ll go straight back here for any future visit to Dublin.

Stayed here week before christmas so right at top of Temple Bar. Suprisingly beautiful hotel,interior reminiscent of d hotel. Lobby decorated in funky vibrant colours with views out onto fleet street. We parked in car park beside thunder road cafe at maximum cost of 18 euro overnight. Reception staff extremely welcoming and rooms modern,spotless and equipped with iron,kettle,tea/coffee making facilities. Beds sumptuously soft,bathroom,shower compact but unless you prefer a bath whilst away, size perfect for your needs.Will definitely stay here again if up in Dublin. Bearing in mind we stayed at a very busy and noisy time of years,we slept like logs,minimal noise disturbance but as we slept at inner side and not front unsure how these rooms fare.

We stayed here while attending the Trade Best that was on in Temple Bar Dublin over the weekend. From the outside this hotel does not look very appealing and could badly do with a bit of a face lift as if you were booking this hotel on first impressions you would walk straight past it. However inside the hotel is a very different story. The hotel reception is absolutely gorgeous having recently being renovated and the staff very friendly. We were in a party of four and were allocated 2 rooms one which was very small and the other was a decent size. Our room the smaller one was quite cold and having checked the heating we noticed the main radiator in the room was barely working and the one in the bathroom was not working at all. having spent most of the night quite cold in the room I notified reception the following morning, on our return that eveing the main heater was fixed but the one in the bathroom was not working which meant a freezing cold bathroom at shower time each morning. Other than this I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel is at a great location on temple bar a. We had asked for a quiet room away from the main street and and we got this which was great as it was so peaceful. It states the hotel was renovated in August but the works are not completly finished yet. I think once the works are completely finished this hotel could be fabulous. But I just hope they give the hotel exterior a revamp as the exterior badly leaves this quaint little hotel down.

Whilst staying overnight in Dublin I chose this property mainly for location and price. I booked a room at €59 which is fairly good for a hotel in the heart of Temple Bar. I stayed in a single en-suite which was average size (small by American standards.) Overall, the room was warm and comfortable during a winter's night and I slept well. The bathroom and shower were fine.

I might suggest that they put in a kettle and some tea/coffee/biscuits in the room as is done in many hotels I'm accostumed to staying in.

Their "Irish breakfast" is adequate, but if you want a more hefty traditional Irish breakfast of eggs, rashers/bacon, bangers/sausage, fried potatoes, black/white pudding, beans, tomatoe and toast, you might want to check out some of the local pubs/restaurants which provide a more substantial breakfast. However, if you're opting for a continental breakfast at the hotel, it's fine. I have a "healthy" appetite, so the breakfast left me a little desirable for a little more and I filled up on the bread & breakfast pastries available as part of their complete breakfast.

So if you're looking for a basic, no-frills stay in the heart of the Temple Bar district of Dublin this place should do you just fine with a wide choice of pubs, restaurants and access to many of the sights of Dublin, plus a Tesco supermarket directly across the street from the hotel.
