Waterloo Lodge is a Georgian Townhouse and the reason I want to let you know about it is because it has great family rooms. I always find this difficult when travelling with the kids. They have rooms with a huge double bed which three of us used and then two singles. The room had lots of space for our bags and lots of space to move around, nice and bright and we had a car space and a fantastic breakfast included and would you believe all for an excellent price. We stayed on longer in Dublin because of finding the Hotel.
Excellent value for money and good location with an airport bus stop 50m down the road. Situated in a quiet residential area.
It is a clean and definitely quirky place. The reception hall is Louis XIV style, and the bedroom was like I am used to from Novotel. New, really comfy and well decorated.
You can have breakfast in house, but there is a nice little cafe just around the corner.
The only downside was a faulty flatscreen LCD TV (a few lines were missing on the screen), but not an issue as we were out all the time.
Two minutes walk away from St. Stephen's Green and five minutes to Grafton Street for shopping. The National Museum and Merrion Square (Oscar Wilde) are 15 minutes' walk away.
These hotels used to be Jury's hotels - they are around for another three years before they are turned into apartments. In the meantime they are found under 'D4 hotels'. Great location and a lot cheaper then before. I am staying here a lot.
It is a 3 star hotel right in the city centre. If you are planning a trip to Dublin it is worth basing yourself there. It is 3 star so you get what you pay for (we only paid €70 for the room) but the location is great. We were able to do our shopping head back and drop off the bags and head out again. The staff were always friendly. Thumbs up.
