“a wee gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

It is a haven yet it is located 10 minutes from Dublin's centre. It is relaxing yet close to fantastic eateries and pubs. It is classic in presentation and history yet modern in welcome and ambience. It is an excellent place to spend a relaxing week end. The rooms reflect the history and yet are comfortable and well equipped. the breakfast offers a wide choice including fish catch of the day. The welcome is typically Irish. We will be back.

Room Tip: we had a room at the front number42 and it was excellent!

We stayed here for the Ireland vs Wales match. It was a good choice as the location is ideal for Landsdowne Rd and the accommodation was well priced. It is situated in a lovely Georgian terrace and there are some decent pubs and restaurants in the neighbourhood (Bloom's Brasserie very nice). We stayed in a standard double which was compact, but sufficient. Rooms clean and free Wi-fi. The decor is okay, but would benefit from a refresh.

Staff were friendly and efficient.

Would stay again.

We loved staying at the Waterloo House. Lovely accomodations. Great Breakfast to get you started. Nice neighborhood with easy access to the bus line as well as some restaurants/pubs and grocery stores for grabbing some quick bites or snacks for the room. Staff was nice ...internet access .. Prices were very good. The Waterloo house is not right in the heart of town. It is a bit of a walk to St. Stephen's Green but you can catch a bus. But if you like a morning walk through the Georgian houses and past many pubs ...this would be a wonderful place for you to stay.

Really liked the location of this hotel, quiet & safe but easy walk to city centre as well as the Aviva stadium.
Hotel was clean & very comfy so no faults there. It was a bit scuffed in places, the paintwork, for example could do with touching up in places, especially in the breakfast room. We sat at a table near the fireplace & noticed the wall was quite scruffy.
Breakfast was nice, had French toast one morning & waffles the next. Very tasty.
My husband had an Irish breakfast which he though was ok, bacon a bit dry & the usual cardboard toast that seems so popular with Irish hotels and b&b's.
I did think it was a bit expensive for what we got but on the positive it was located well & was very comfortable.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 37 which is one of their larger rooms. Think room 36 is similar in size. Its also...

This was out second time staying in Waterloo House. The rooms are not modern but very comfortable. The off street parking is great and the location is ideal for a city stay. Excellent location if you going to a match in the Aviva Stadium.
