Other Things to Note
NOTE MAX CHECK IN IS 9:00 pm
We had a great time at Giuseppes apartment in the city centre. The location was one of the best in Dublin. Right across from the temple bar area and we could walk to all the sights in Dublin.
Even though we arrived late Pablo was able to meet us for the check in. Thanks for that!
The apartment is cozy and nicely decorated. We were three girls and had more than enough space. Traffic can be really loud in the area, but that's the way it is in the city centre.
We couldn't have asked for better accomodation during our stay!
Il ricevimento è stato perfetto. La casa si trova all'interno di un residence molto curato. All'interno la casa è ben arredata e curata. Un altro aspetto positivo è stata la possibilità fare il check-out più tardi rispetto a quello indicato nell'annuncio. L'unico problema che segnalo è il rumore proveniente dalla strada durante le ore notturne, essendo la camera da letto posizionata al 1° piano e verso il lato strada. In questa strada passano persone che urlano provenienti da un locale adiacente e il personale dello stesso locale, verso le 3 di notte, svuota più di una volta, un numero incredibile di bottiglie nei contenitori della spazzatura. Complessivamente il soggiorno è stato positivo.
die Lage der Wohnung ist super! für eine Person genau richtig. im Winter etwas kühl und feucht, Dublin halt....aber es gibt eine kleine Heizung!
The flat was very nice and extremely well located. As a Dubliner myself (7 years here that it is almost a Dubliner) I would strongly recommend this place. Excellent location and very good value. The dealings with Pat and Giuseppe were seamless. Perfect.
Kontakt: 10/10, kam immer sofort eine freundliche Antwort auf Fragen.
Wohnung: 8/10. Waren mit 4 Personen da, sehr gemütliche Wohnung mit schönem Badezimmer und ausgestatteter Küche. Aber bis ca. 1 Uhr Nachts und ab 8 Uhr morgens recht laut. Nach ein paar Guiness stört das aber nicht mehr weiter.
Lage: 10/10, mitten in der Innenstadt, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, Shoppingmöglichkeiten, Supermärkte, Temple Bar Pubs... zu Fuß innerhalb weniger Minuten erreichbar. Zentraler geht nicht!
Negativ: Haben uns ein Auto und diese Wohnung gebucht, da im Text steht, dass ein Parkplatz vorhanden ist. Leider hat der Anbieter nur einen Parkplatz für 4 Wohnungen, so dass dieser schon von anderen Gästen besetzt war. Wussten nicht, dass wir ihm deswegen rechtzeitig bescheid geben mussten. Da Parken unglaublich schwierig und teuer in Dublin ist, haben wir das Auto wieder abbestellt und mussten 45 Euro Stornierungsgebühren zahlen. Ärgerlich, aber im Nachhinein wohl sogar besser, da Autofahren in Dublin unnötig und ziemlich anstrengend erscheint.
Alles in allem: Weiterempfehlung, top!!
