    Very friendly staff. Clean and spacious room. Good location for city center. Nice pub on ground floor. Good breakfast, plenty to eat (try the full Irish)!

    During some evenings, it was very noisy because of the popular bar downstairs. Yhe breakfast has a buffet for cereals, fruit juice and coffee/tea. The main part of breakfast is a choice of 4, which is served at each table separately. This was not so efficient, you need to take some time for breakfast.

    Hotel was so beautiful and staff was very kind and helpful. Next time when I visit Dublin, I choose this hotel again :)

    The breakfast was great. Our room was very comfortable and spacious. The staff was helpful. You can leave your luggage with the staff after check-out. The hotel is located between two Dublin bike stations, making trips to/from the center really easy. There are also some bars and restaurants nearby, if you are feeling a bit tired.

    While it was not a huge problem for us, it is true that there is music from the nightclub until 2 am. We were on the second floor and could hear the rhythms and vibrations. We still slept just fine and the area is relatively quiet in the morning.

    The staff wery really friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable. There is a lovely homely atmosphere in the hotel. The location is excellent for shopping in Grafton Street, Stephen's Green area. There is parking nearby and there is a pub next door.

    The breakfast was okay but it wasn't great.

    I did not expereince any noise from the pub below.The room was spacious enough and nicely decorated.There was a bath and shower in the room.Good value for money, overall.

    Small television in room. The breakfast was quite basic.Only 2 choices of cereal.Cooked breakfast was ok.Breakfast area wasn't super clean.There appeared to only one waitress at breakfast and she was polite though very busy.Breakfast tables were not dressed with cutlery and there was none out to help yourself.

    Of course, carpets are weared here and there, but in generall it's clean and the hotel has a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Located at the border of the proper city area, which has pros and cons. Cons: 15 min to the strict centre by bus (rather too long for a walk, if you want to save your legs for visiting). Pros: it's quiet, so no problem with sleeping with the windows open.

    Unfortunately, wireless Internet only in the lobby area, but it works ok and is free.

    The man at the hotel reception has been very kind and willing at our arrival. The hotel is well situated, the place is nice and quiet. The hotel is not too close to the centrum of Dublin, but this is easily reachable by buses. The price has been reasonable for our purposes. Portobello hotel is nice, family-like, clean hotel with standard quality of the room. Also the breakfast included in price was very good.

    Our room has been just under the roof, too close to the heating that has been noisy during the night, especially when the skylight window has been open. The WiFi internet close to the reception was not working properly all the time. The other guy in the reception having the night service on our last day was quite unwilling.

    The hotel is very clean and rooms are spacious and comfortable.I have stayed in this hotel many times and have nothing negative to say about the hotel except for one point which i will make in the next section.overall i think the hotel is well managed and good value.

    The breakfast is the only thing i didnt like about the hotel.I thought the quality of the meat was poor and i have skipped breakfast on many ocassions.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful, also hotel was within walking distance of town centre and local attractions.

    There were five people in our party in three seperate rooms one room on the third floor was not of the standard of the other two rooms.
