Offering 20 rooms in the residential Upper Gardiner part of town, the family-run, two-star Dergvale Hotel, falls into that happy subcategory of hotels that we think would be especially appealing to a fussy aunt or uncle.
The Rooms can't help but please neat freaks: All are tidy, well lit, comfortable and painted in calming pastel hues. They are each equipped with a television and phone. Some rooms have private bathrooms, while the cheapest have a sink only and share other bathroom facilities.
Restyled one too many times, to within inches of its life, the Dergvale Hotel has an aesthetically schizoid lobby that's simultaneously compelling and perplexing. The elegant doorway puts you in one frame of mind, while the patterned carpet and non-working fireplace put you in another.
And just wait until you see the literal underbelly of the Dergvale: its basement bar. Imbued with a retro elan just crying out for hipster inhabitation, it beckons you to sink into its deep red booths for a nightcap or two. Or fantasize about keeping bar in a romantic, history-drenched city while penning a novel about romantic, history-drenched things.
In all, the Dergvale Hotel is basic and old-fashioned (there is no Internet access on the property), but it benefits from friendly service and very low rates.
Breakfast is sometimes included in the room rate (check when booking).

About the Dergvale Hotel neighborhood
Upper Gardiner Street, including Gardiner Place, is quiet and nondescript. Situated relatively close to O'Connell Street, it is conveniently located on the northern border of Dublin's city center. The plethora of small, well-priced guesthouses and hotels lining the surrounding streets make this area a real treat. Expect a relaxed scene and far more residents than tourists.
