Great place, a handy little hotel which is easy to find on the canal. Stayed here for 4 nights last week with my sister and we have both stayed on occasion before when working in Dublin. For a 2 star hotel the Portobello exceed my expectations. The rooms and bathroom were spotless and perfectly acceptable. Shay in the bar is... More

We stayed there for three night last week (Thursday to Sunday) and we were over all very happy with our stay. Well situated beside a lovely old canal and within a walking distance of St' Stephan's green and the shopping area. I absolutely loved to have the pub at the ground floor and the food there was also quite good... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Portobello, and even if the room was a bit on the small side and the view from the window was quite boring, we still enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We thought it was great to have the pub downstairs, and the noise from there didn't bother us at... More

We have just returned from a 3 night break in Dublin, staying at the Portobello again. This hotel never lets us down in any area. The reservation is made in minutes, as is check-in on arrival. The value for money is excellent for the location, and the rooms very clean, with good facilities. The staff in the hotel are very... More

Room was clean. Staff at the counter was helpful. Bus stop is just two minutes from the hotel. Near to halal restaurants and convenience store. The only complain was the heater in room 210 was not functioning well so the room was very cold. Requested for portable heater but was told the hotel did not have one.

We found the Hotel to be just what we needed for our break in Dublin. Could not find anything to fault it. The staff were more than helpful and very friendly. The Hotel had plenty of information leaflets of where to go and what to do around Dublin. The food was of a first class standard and was great value... More
