When we checked in, the front desk person was nice. Room was clean, but very small and had only 2 outlets - none useable in bath. No conditioner or soap- just shampoo. The shock was at night when the light from the club below projected...More
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It is located in a cool area, with a great walk into Dublin city center (about 20 minutes). Tons of unique restaurants and places are found along the walk.
One negative was being in a room with no...More
Booked in a hurry via a website; I picked the best deal combined with proximity to my ultimate destination.
The room is absolutely fine. Clean, functional and suited my needs. Lovely pub below which doubles up as the breakfast bar in the morning.
We were 4 adults, in a family suite (regular rate but it is indeed a suite).
Very clean, nice living-room area (we turned it into a breakfast area - breakfast is not included), with tea/coffee, cookies. Quiet too.
Very friendly staff at the reception, quaint...More
Pub is open til the early hours of the morning on weekends and it's very lively! I wouldn't expect too much from this place. Breakfast ok, rooms adequate and I guess Guinness isn't too far to walk to get a pint! Lots of places to...More

Hi - I lived in this area for a number of years so therefore know the area very well . - To answer your question - no its not far. You can cross the road and get a bus if you want or if you walk down about 10 minutes it brings you to Stephens Green (a lovely city centre park) and Grafton Street which is a lovely shopping area . A few more minutes walk (passing Trinity College) and you reach Temple Bar which is good for nightlife. A further few minutes and you reach O'Connell street (Henry street is off this and is also good for shopping) . Just ask the receptionist to point you in the right direction. Hopes this helps (ps the opposite direction from hotel brings you to a nice little area called Rathmines - it has some nice places to eat and also some good pubs. - Its only about 3 minutes walk from this hotel - again ask to be pointed in the right direction. Another tip - if you are arriving in Dublin airport - don't get a taxi to Portobello as it will be very expensive Instead go to tourist information desk and they will tell you where to buy bus tickets in airport and which bus to get outside airport to get you here. You will have to get 2 busses but it really is very easy and easy on your pocket too (you can also buy a return bus ticket to get you back to airport) Hope you have a lovely time
