Historical Traveler Reviews Xon's Platja Hotel Empuriabrava
Reasonable and handy location
The hotel front and surrounding shops and pubs look a bit run down during the day. Inside the hotel is clean and bright. Large bar and pool room at entrance, several lively bars nearby with Bands playing til late but not at all noisy, never heard a thing in hotel. Handy after walking around Dublin all day if you want a drink nearby and rest your tired feet.
St Stephens Green just around the corner, Grafton Street and Dawson Street 5 mins away with shops, bars and cafes. Cafe en Seigne in Dawson street, and the Bank Pub near Temple bar both beautiful old elaborate interior buildings. with great food.
Make sure to go to Gallaghers' Boxty House in Temple bar, food wonderful .
Value for Money!!
When we turned up it didn't look great from the outside. However, once we walked in it had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly.
The room was basic but very comfortable. Its a short walk from some very nice restaurants (Yamamori in particular) and bars which was ideal!
Loved the de luxe
stayed three nights in camden de luxe dublin. wonderfully close to the city centre. beautiful view to the wicklow mountains and a wonderful dome. nice nice pub, whelans, almost next door. the room was spacious, beds comfy, bathtub a joy, and the hotel staff very helpful and friendly. the place was not noisy at all and we were not disturbed in any way. the price 80 euro per night a bargain. if i go to dublin again, which i dearly hope i will, i would love to stay at camden de luxe again.
Decent value for money
good value for money hotel in Central Dublin. No 16 bus from Dublin airport to door of hotel. Clean rooms and nice breakfast included. Would stay again. ~Imagine it to be really noisy on a weekend though.
Excellent Value - friendly staff
I have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. The outside appearence is deceptive and once into the reception and bedrooms, guests will find a unique small friendly hotel which is clean and well maintained. The rooms are named after famous Irish film stars and even include their photos and filmograhies. Presumably the building was once a Cinema.
The breakfast, which on most mornings was cooked and served by a very friendly chef Richard - whom we later found was running the premises - was ample to set you up for a days walking tour of Dublin.
The Hotel itself is some 10-15 minutes walk from Temple Bar and O'Connell Street and some 5 minutes from St Stephens Green. The bus to the airport stops directly outside. This perhaps is the only draw back as Lower camden street is a busy commuter route.
We stayed Sunday to Friday and so did not experience a weekend. I have paid alot more for Hotels of a lesser standard that the Camden De Luxe.
Although we didnt use the Bistro other than for breakfast, food is available at reasonable price at "Ricrado's". The main bar boasts a DJ everynight though at nearly 50 years I didnt venture onto the dancefloor!
For good value, clean accommodation with friendly staff in Dublin, not far from the sights then this hotel is for you.
What a bargain!
My husband and I decided to stay at the Camden De Luxe for a few nights on our trip to Dublin. We knew that as the hotel was 2* it wouldn't be luxurious, so we were quite prepared. We were actually pleasantly surprised when we got there. The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel is in a perfect location for all the shops, bars and restaurants you could want.
The room was very simply furnished (it did have a tv) but clean and we heard no noise from outside at night - our room was at the back of the hotel - I'm not sure if the rooms at the front of the hotel would have been noisy.
We didn't eat at the hotel but there was a restaurant, bar and pool hall had we decided to use any of the facilities.
Overall - fantastic location, great value for money. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't need lots of facilities in their room but wants a central location to explore Dublin.
Good value base.
Stayed Monday to Wednesday nights (incl) and found the hotel to be excellent in its class. The room was spacious, the bathroom fine, everything spotlessly clean, nice big towels, comfy bed, friendly staff and a reasonable location about a 10 minute walk to the Liffey. Breakfast was a bit basic.
I expect it could get noisy at weekends, but this applies to most Dublin or other city centre hotels. We trawled the internet and could find nothing better with paying a LOT more, and few were cheaper than this - except the hotels out by the airport.
Would certainly recommend and would return when next in Dublin.
Hotel is fine but very noisy
The hotel is fine and is quite central. However, the street is very noise because there are late bars and disco around. If you plan to join the rest to party, go ahead.
Great Fun at The Camden
A group of us girls were looking for a girly weekend in Dublin. We stayed at The Camden De Luxe Hotel, the staff were friendly, rooms bright and airy. The only complaint about the breakfast is that you really need to be hungry, it's huge!! We were only 5 minutes away from Grafton Street and had a great time in the Hotels modern late disco bar and a few games of Pool in the fantastic Pool Lounge. We'll definitely be returning.
good priced hotel, friendly helpful staff, excellent food, nice clean rooms, i will definatley return, thanks for looking after us.

... a city for about 400 years, but it doesn't seem to be much bigger than Howick ... although it does have a pretty impressive castle which we don't have back home! King James lived here for a while when he was trying to conquer Ireland.
On the drive down to Waterford Andrew told us about the great potato famine that happened in Ireland between 1845 and 1849. The Famine was caused by "the Blight", a fungus that quickly destroyed all the potatoes in Ireland ...
... also predicted the winner correctly). We also did lots of "window" shopping and made a couple of purchases - breeches, a Stockholm bridle and a scarf. At 6 pm we met up with Bob and watched the Land Rover Puissance competition. It was very exciting - the Puissance wall went up to 7'3" before the Egyptian horse/rider combination finally came out on top. The jumping was amazing! After we got back to our hotel, Bob and I went for a late supper while Laura stayed behind ...
... for 4/5 months go to Thailand or Ibiza because travelling isn't suited to that. That being said we went out at every possible opportunity and had some unbelievable nights but by and large its far more about going to places and doing activities than constantly going out.
In terms of the blog itself I'd like to give special thanks to James Dillon who was always a reliable source when I needed some inspiration. ...
... my face looks very Brazilian apparently. But hey I'll take it :) Anyways the tour was really good. Saw trinity college and learned all about Irish history, famine, independence, rebellions and everything in between. Towards the end I met some girls from my hostel and we decided to do a pub crawl that night. It was a lot of fun. The second bar was my favourite because it had a great live band playing both nights (spoiler alert!). Also had ...
Today was another tour day with an awesome tour guide named Colm. He talked basically the whole time we were on the bus and he knew so much information. It was ridiculous. I have never seen so much rain and wind in my whole life. Our first stop was the Famous Hill of Tara and it was a grassy, hilly place with a lot of history. There was a cool statue of Saint Patrick and a cool cemetery. The next place we went to was the Trim Castle, where Brave Heart ...
