I spent two nights in the oscar Wilde suite with my boyfriend and was extremely happy with our stay. The room was absolutely beautiful and had everything that we could have wished for. The staff couldn't do enough and were ever so friendly. Told us where to go and what we needed to know. Brilliant location and wonderful breakfast!
We stayed in the merchant house after our wedding as part of our minimoon .we were great ed by the most helpful house keeper who immediately congratulated us and had made the room more romantic with a bed of rose petals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel
no view from room felt chlostrapbobic very cold room
Location is fantastic, Rooms amazing and the staff can't do enough for you. You will not be disappointed with the Merchant house. See you next year, Mr Chapman
Only a personal recommendation: Bathrobes would be a nice touch.
The gentelman checking me in was very knowledgeable to the area and was as professional as you would expect from a five star hotel. The room was very pretty with nice extras, such as a available umbrella and a heated bathroom floor. (Even though it only stays heated for 15 min. )
The room heater was on a timer that did not allow for any heat after midnight. I inquired the next day . There is no way to alter that. The mattress was old and broken, not sleepable. Due to the cold and the mattress it was a night without sleep. The property is located up an alley with rough people milling about. It is a guest house not a hotel therefore no staff after hours . It is required you go through mutiple doors , locks and security key pads to be able to enter from the ally. I was overcharged from the booking.com rate quoted by $45.00.
Spacious and clean room.
Chocolate bars on offer in room were out of date! The price stickers were placed over the eat-by date on several bars. We found this totally unacceptable and of concern. Breakfast was served in a different building. This was not obvious when booking online. The menu was very restricted in choice of food and not great quality. We phoned en-route to enquire if there was parking at the guest house, we were told "yes", and to drive to the front door and speak to the housekeeper on arrival; only to find out that parking was in an independent nearby car park and not free. We would have liked to have known this in advance so we could choose where to park.
Location is excellent, right in the centre of temple bar, although it is right in the heart of the City you wouldn't know from inside the room as there is triple glazing at the windows. We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite which was beautiful and exceeded all expectation. Heated flooring in the bathroom, fabulous coffee machine, Extra comfy bed and beautifully decorated. Everywhere is extremely clean. The owner met us on arrival and Julianne the house keeper was super friendly and very welcoming. We arrived at 10am so they let us leave our bags there and we went back to check-in in the afternoon. On the day of checkout (great late checkout time too!) we also left our bag there and picked it up later on before heading to the airport for our evening flight. If your booking breakfast it is served at an Italian restaurant at the end of the road (not even 2 mins walk) the breakfast was lovely, they offered full Irish breakfast, or whatever combination you wanted. It was cooked to perfection, not like a greasy spoon. I would definately recommend staying at the merchant house and we will definately be staying there again when we go back.
The merchant house has links with an Italian restaurant at end of the road. You get 20% off total food and drinks bill, but I would suggest booking a table at evening in the festive periods as it gets busy (we couldn't get a table) temple bar area is very busy but has a great atmosphere day and night.
2 minors... bed a little small room a little cold at night
Location is first class. The suite was spacious and very comfortable. Our house keeper was very helpful and knowledgable with lots of information.
WiFi was a little hit & miss. Three flights of narrow stairs.
I liked the fact that you heard no noise from the busy streets below, with three doors between us and the revellers you felt very safe and relaxed.
The dirty DVDs for sale in the room. The accommodation is sandwiched between a Thai massage parlour and a Mask and Fetish Shop so Im sure if you fancied porn you wouldnt have to look far.
Quirkyness of location, cosy and comfortable, attentive staff
Probably location of opposite building feeling of being overlooked but then again added to the quirkyness
Rooms much more appealing than a standard hotel. Location perfect and not disturbed by the hoards outside at midnight! Thought having no food would be an issue but it wasn't. Breakfast was a 100mtrs away and a very good discounted Italian on the next road.
No bar! Though the mini-bar was reasonably priced.
- Luxury accommodation in the heart of Dublin City; - very private and comfortable, peaceful, homely and unobtrusive
The room was beautifully decorated with lots of little touchs which added to the comfort. Although it's in Temple Bar the windows are well insulated so there is no noise.
Service, cleanliness and facilities excellent.
Breakfast in seperate building.
The best place i ever stayed before! Will return back soon
Beautiful apartment with no expense spared. Excellent location close to restaurants, shopping and nightlife.
The Oscar Wilde apartment is up six flights of stairs which was really quite unpleasant for an older couple. The website does little to warn you apart from noting that the property has no lift. It definitely detracted from our enjoyment of the break.
Excellent location right in the heart of temple bar. You could hear a pin drop it's that quiet inside and very comfortable bed. 1st class
Having to go to difference place for breakfast.
Bed was amazingly comfy! Room was so spacious, and quiet given it was in City Centre. A real treat to ourselves! Staff were very helpful.
Its not that we didn't like it, but last year breakfast was in a different cafe....which was smaller, quainter etc....and felt it was more in keeping with theme of rooms. But staff and food in this cafe were good.
Location, decor, cleanliness.
Noise late from bars opposite, no power shower, no milk (long life)
Location, staff, luxury touches, comfort
Glass bathroom wall!
Character of the room, size of the room. Privacy and quietness. Location. Liked pretty much all of it.
Size of the towels not adequate and not soft enough. No soap only hand soap. Didn't like the sweets out etc. more choice for tea and coffee.
