Location, location, LOCATION!

We spent 3 days sightseeing in Dublin. The hotel's proximity to the Tourist Center was invaluable for catching the Hop-a-Bus and Air Coach to the airport. On March 18 we stayed in rm. 517 and the bath tub's drain must have been clogged. We reported it to the staff when we left.

A Welcoming Boutique Hotel in the midst

A bit of noise from the pub downstairs -- very popular the week before St. Patrick's Day. Some noisy guests in the hallways at night. Very handy to Trinity College, downtown Dublin, the Temple Bar area, and St. Stephen's Green.

Grafton Capital Hotel

Hotel was very hard to find. Staff very helpful and willing to accomadate any request. Woke up the 2nd night to a car alarm going off, party outside and then a fire alarm going off @ 3am. When I did get up, found eye swollen from a bite and several other bite marks. Couldn't wait to leave!

Grafton Capital Hotel

We stayed at the Grafton Capital for the Thanksgiving weekend, and had a great experience. The location couldn't be better, just steps from Grafton Street shopping, St Stephen's Green, Trinity College etc. For a European hotel, we had plenty of space, rooms were extremely clean and well kept. Staff was very helpful and friendly!

Very convenient location

The hotel is located right at the town centre; at walking distance to shopping areas, tourist information centre (where we can take the aircoach to airport, excellent),museums, and only 10 mins walking distance to the Liffey river.

Good location, ok hotel

This hotel was average in about every way. The staff were nice, not super friendly, but certainly not rude. There is a nightclub downstairs in the hotel, which can make entering the building at night a bit of a hassle. However, there was no noise from the club in the rooms. The hotel is in a great location, and the rooms are quite large. The hotel is generally nice, if a bit worn. My biggest complaint is that although they advertise free internet and wifi, it is available only in a small lounge on the first floor, and works poorly. Overall, ok for the price but not amazing.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Parking is available about a block away in a mall parking deck. Although there are signs throughout the lot warning that if you don't pay within 15 minutes you will loose the special £5.50 rate, wait and get the hotel voucher. Although it only gives you £0.50 off, it gives you an extra two hours of parking the next morning.

In the Center of Things

We found this hotel on Orbitz and it was a great place to stay. It was easy to visit all the major sights; most of them were a short walk, for example Temple Bar area, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin Castle, Writers' Museum, National Museum, Trinity College and Book of Kells, Shopping, etc. Guinness Storehouse is a bit farther, but you can buy an all-day ticket on Grayline's City Tour and hop on and off to see the sights. The hotel restaurant was a real bargain--cheaper than other places and everything we had was tasty. There was no A/C, but we really didn't need it as the temperatures were usually mild. There was also some noise from the street with the windows open, but that's because it's located in an active area. The only complaint would be that the free internet's availability was spotty. We would stay here again.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Eat at the hotel for good food and great prices. Eating out in Dublin is otherwise expensive.
