Portobello Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for one night recently whilst working at Amazon office which is about 500 metres away across the road. Stayed in a room on the second floor and room was comfortable and quite spacious, bed comfortable bathroom functional. Had a good nights sleep, bar downstairs is good and rear section is where breakfast served. Reception staff very helpful. Parking is on road to side of hotel, pay and display from 08:00-18:00. Recommended!

I have visited this hotel multiple times in the evenings and at night. I enjoy it for a few quiet drinks early on in the evening around 7-9pm and it gets busier from about 10pm onwards. It is well located beside the canal and a short walk (5 minutes) to Camden and harcourt street. The drinks are all €4 except for cocktails. Cocktails are €6 each or 2 for €10 and they are very good. Staff are friendly and I enjoy returning to this pub due to the warm, inviting atmosphere.

Stayed here last month. Staff were nice but the food was awful. The steak sandwich was terrible not even steak! The burger was the most greasiest Iv ever seen we didn’t go near breakfast! Room was fine, clean and not expensive, nothing fancy.

This hotel had very helpful staff. It was maybe a 10-15 min walk to downtown. There were a lot of bars and restaurants near by including under the hotel which did cause some noise at night. Parking was available on the street but you have to pay during week days.

So, this hotel is rated as 2* .... we'll I think it is definitely more than this!! Yes it's noisy on a night and it is not 5* luxury but it is the perfect hotel for an adult stay in Dublin! The staff (particularly Valentino!) are so so helpful, nothing is too much trouble. It's on the bus route into town so no walking if you don't want... ! Plenty of lovely shops and eateries on the strip... I would definitely stay here again without children!!

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 so bright we could not get our room dark even with shades closed and door to bath closed. The music below was so loud we could hear it until 4am - even through ear plugs. The floor even vibrated from the sound and action. How they can rent this room - for nearly $400 a night - let alone for a quarter that price - is beyond me. Simply not acceptable as a family unit. We stayed elsewhere the rest of our stay in Dublin. Please only book if you plan to be out all night!

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 windows. We had a ceiling pane that let light in but also had lots of birds hanging out on it. The pub below plays loud music on Friday and Saturday. Being on the third floor, we did not hear the music, but could feel the vibrations while trying to sleep. If you are prepared for a little noise at night, then this is a great place to stay.

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. Friendly and down to earth staff. A great location, a little off the track but still easily accessible to the centre of town. Loved it and would definitely stay here again. Thankyou.

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 area in Dublin (the canal is relaxing). Cons : The bed we had was sunken so we didn't sleep too well.The other beds were fine. The location : a little far from the center (although, as I said, it's kind of charming).35-45 minutes' walk to Temple Bar. There is a stop for the airport shuttle a block away, but the receptionist told us it'd be the same price to just get a taxi. He arranged for a taxi for us and indeed, we got to the airport much faster, for 25 or 30 euros including tip (no extra for the luggage).

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 eat nearby
