    Historical Traveler Reviews Pembroke Townhouse Dublin

    Great location!

    from

    We stayed there in October, 2005. Our room, on the fifth floor facing the street was just fine---very clean, just enough space for the two of us. Breakfast was one of the best of the 6 places we stayed in Ireland. We found a great weekend deal on their website, which we doubled for four nights. (We arrived at 10am and our room was ready at 1pm---not bad.)

    We walked everywhere---into Dublin---not more than 15 minutes away. We also walked in the other direction toward Ballsbridge Terrace (5 minutes), where we found several great restaurants and one fine pub. Check out the early bird specials all over Ireland (usually from 5-7pm) which are great deals. We loved Roly's Bistro.

    Overall, a great start to our trip.

    Terrible service

    from

    Well, hotel guests normally expect some degree of "professionality" in the service provided by hotel employees... but in Pembroke Townhouse you can forget about it: problems in the bath tube sink, no heating... and no solutions! this is the problem...

    It was my second visit to Dublin and to Pembroke Townhouse, first time in Pembroke was fine, but this last time the service from employees was absolutely horrible, with a huge lack of professionality: the bath tube sink did not work and while taking a shower, the water was up to my knees... cold winter weekend and no heating in the room. I had to ask three times before someone fixed it, and with really bad manners, as if I was disturbing them with my "silly demands"...

    When explaining the sink problem, they told me that this was the way the showers are, and even nearly treating me as a lier... well, I have no words to describe the situation...

    To say something positive, the location is fine, but you have at least a couple of alternative hotels at similar prices, so why betting on Pembroke Townhouse when there's other fine places to stay???

    A Gem

    from

    The Pembroke Townhouse is situated in the prestigious Pembroke Road - a twenty minute stroll from Stephens Green in the centre of Dublin.It is a guest hotel only serving breakfast but superbly run by a friendly staff and spotlessly clean. It has an ambience of Old Dublin with a nice lounge with complimentary newspapers for guests adjacent to reception.In nearby Baggot St- five minutes walk - you will find Searson's and The Waterloo - two of Dublin's oldest pubs and a selection of restaurants.Offering great value , the hotel is constantly in demand and rightly so as its location while peaceful is close to all major amenities on the South Side of the Liffey. Some of the rooms are better than others - go for the fifth floor if you have a choice - avoid the car park level rooms - the hotel has secure car parking to the rear.Ideal for long weekends, rugby (Landsdowne Road is six minutes walk) and business travellers the only criticism I have is a lack of a PC for business users though on line access for laptops is available. Great value - but book early.

    Good value for money

    from

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere and good value for money

    Perfect Place to Stay

    from

    We arrived early in the morning and our room was not ready, however we were offered breakfast and a changing room. Our luggage was stored away and our room was ready within an hour. The room was really beautiful and had a fab large window to the front.

    The staff were super and friendly, so efficient and helpful. The location is extremely central and close to all tourist attractions and everything really!!!

    I have stayed on anumber of occassions and will be back again.

    The breakfast is especially great, try the French Toast and omlettes!!!!!!!

    Be prepared to wait!

    from

    First of all, don't plan on checking into this place until at least 5pm. We arrived after an overnight flight and were told that our room would be ready at 2pm. We stowed our luggage and took off on foot to sightsee. When we returned at 2:30, we were told by the desk clerk that it would be a little longer. There were several other people asleep on the couch and chairs in the lobby area so we sat outside until 5pm. There were no apologies by the desk clerk and there was only 2 housekeepers in the whole place. The next day, our room wasn't cleaned when we returned from our bus tour at 4:30pm. We spoke with many others at the property that complained of the same problem. The rooms were ok but I would probably never stay here again.

    Excellent value

    from

    We stayed at Pembroke Townhouse May 17-19, 2004, and were very pleased. While the room was not terribly spacious, it was very clean, had above-average amenities, and comfortable beds. The hotel is NOT air-conditioned, but window ventilation was adequate. The staff was very helpful, and breakfast was tasty, although portions were small.

    It was a very good value for Dublin. We would definitely stay there again.

    Two nights special in Dublin

    from

    Had an excellent stay at the Pembroke townhouse, clean spacious rooms, very helpful staff and delicious breakfast. Good location just away from the hustle of downtown Dublin but within healthy walking distance of all the attractions, would definitely recommend a visit.

    Highly recommended!

    from

    We booked the Pembroke after seeing it on the web. It's the only B&B or hotel I've ever stayed in with an upstairs! A staircase led to a loft with sofa and stereo. Consequently, the ceiling was two storeys high--very unique room. The building itself was lovely, Georgian, in a quiet neighborhood that was still convenient to the city center. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I thought it was great value at 110 Euros (with full breakfast) in a city that ain't cheap.

    Great value, wonderful property

    from

    A quiet boutique property located in a residential district. Room was spotless with quality amenities & linens. Clean, comfortable, with competent staff. Breakfast was delicious & efficient. Walking distance to most Dublin attractions. (1-3 miles) Taxi stand close by for those who don't enjoy pounding the pavement.

We are in luck at the next bus as we are among the few people to fit on board. We have to stand but we are OK with that since it's taken more than 45 minutes to get on a bus. At the mob bus stop, our bus is rushed by then drunken and foolish. Our bus driver stops the bus and shouts ...

    No matter how hard I try to cross a road properly, I usually always get it wrong. I guess I am clearly a creature of habit - but I do always look both ways - just in case.....haven't been hit yet!

    Last night I went to Celtic Nights - an evening of true Irish music, dancing and good food....oh, and some cocktails! The show was a lot of fun or as they would say in Irish - great craic (crack) - meaning 'fun'! Great musicians and ...
