Great location and good value hotel.
Handel's Hotel is in the perfect location to see the sights in Dublin. Just a few minutes walk from Temple Bar, with many restaurants, bars; the river and O'Connell St. The hotel has a nice bar and the rooms and bathrooms are a good size for a capital city hotel. We got a very great rate which made it extremely good value. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I am happy to recommend this hotel.

Comfortable hotel close to temple bar
Great location, only a minute or twos walk from temple bar and all the other great bars, comfortable hotel with 24/7 reception who were polite and welcoming. Only negative was that the rooms on the third floor were very hot & there is no Aircon. There was a fan available but it made for a hard nights sleep.
