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

I didn't actually stay here. I made a reservation and thought I cancelled it on their website. Was it my fault for not checking that I got a confirmation? Maybe. Was it their fault because their website didn't send them the message? Maybe. All I know is that I was billed 239 Euros for a no-show and they weren't very...

Don't be put off that it's not right in Dublin city centre its an easy 15 minute walk one straight road right into the heart of this great City. Nice canal side location the rooms are fine the food is good the Guinness of course is great and the staff very polite professional and friendly.

I work in the sector so seldom write reviews. However I'm going to make an exception here. I travel regularly to Dublin on business and have accepted sadly modest standards for inflated prices. A common plague. The Portobello is the first traditional hotel that has impressed me in the last few years. Why because it is clean, friendly, exceptional location,...

I stayed here on a Wednesday night. The room was fine, with iron and board, hair dryer and generous tea and coffee offering. The service was great - the guy on reception couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. However, there was some filming taking place outside which meant that the actual entrance was out of bounds and you had...

Staff was very polite and friendly. Not very far from city center and close to main attractions. The pub downstairs makes it more interesting and Irish charming. Breakfast was good and enough. Room was not very spacious but it had more then enough amenities for a solo traveler - business or pleasure. Bit noisy during the night.

The bathroom was small, there was some music from the bar. The mattress was of poor quality but it was reflective of the value. I would stay here again, staff was friendly and accommodating. Location is right near the bus and near the canal. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and pubs close by.

We stayed at the Portobello Hotel on our last night in Dublin. It was easy to find, but parking is sparse. We scored a street spot outside, but had to pay until 6:30 pm. The staff was great - gave us a recommendation for a laundromat and we went down and ended up having them wash and fold our laundry...

The location is ideal and the man at reception was charming however I found the room cold and a tad bleak, it could really use some sprucing up and a bit more heating ( I was frozen) but for the price I suppose you can't have too many expectations especially in Dublin. My husband is a professional musician and he...

We stayed here for 3 nights and having read some of the negative reviews I feel they are not justified at all. First of all the hotel is quite clearly advertised as being above a bar so there will obviously be a degree of noise at nights, however we never heard a thing on any of nights we were there....
