Was a little concerned when we arrived about 10:30 pm. They have a bar downstairs that looked kind of sketchy (although my family thinks my radar is set a little too sensitive on that sort of thing) with a bouncer outside and a bunch of folks hanging around in the cold smoking. Have to ring in to the lobby. Once... More

After staying in an Airbnb listing that was much more expensive and disappointing, we were pleased with the customer service we received at check in from Anthony, the inexpensive price, the clean room and the excellent location! We were able to walk all over City Centre Dublin, area is great.

My friends and I (a group of 5) spent 3 nights in Dublin and stayed at this hotel. Our room was a suite with 3 full sides bed and a small living room area with a couch and TV. We were worried about being crammed in a room but this was spacious for us. The beds were also really comfortable.... More

Great location for a 2 star property. Very basic however fulfils your basic requirements. I would personally recommended this only on the basis of the service levels offered by their reception staff Anthony O'Brian. Very warm and friendly and happy to assist. He truly represents Irish hospitality in its true sense. If you are looking for a place....I think this... More

Hotel is basic but fine for a night out. Staff were fine and the rooms were a little run down but clean. Would skip the bar down stairs basic beers, staff all on phones behind the bar, dirty tables, posters for the All Ireland still up weeks later. Also no resident bar for some reason.

The hotel is above the Portobello bar which fortunately doesn't seem to be too noisy and didn't disturb me. there is a lift if you can't manage one or more flights of stairs. Whilst "nothing fancy" the rooms are comfortable, reasonably spacious and adequately equipped with a TV, kettle, small desk area and good WiFi in the rooms and also... More
