A hidden gem!

Would recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
For the money, this was an ideal hotel. I walked everywhere - Temple Bar area, 3Arena, the works. Everything was roughly 15-20 minutes. The staff was great. The rooms were great. And The Gasworks Pub - a great spot to end my nights. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location,a fine hotel

Would recommend Fri, Oct 23, 2015
We had previously booked another hotel,but our son recommended otherwise. We were able to change to the well located Grand Canal Hotel. It is perhaps a mile to Grafton Street etc through very nice parts of the city(St. Stephen's Green,The Grand Canal). The interior of the hotel is great & it has great parking underneath the hotel which features wide enough spaces and passages so I felt relatively comfortable maneuvering our rental car in and out. It is also easy accesss from the highway(N7) & the airport.I give this hotel my hearty endorsement.

Two night stay at the Grand Canal Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
Had a look around at lots of different hotels and the Grand Canal came out as one of the cheapest but also not too far away from the main attractions. The room was big and was modern, had all the bits you needed! Taxi's are around €8 to the centre from the hotel which isn't bad at all, it took us around 25 minutes to walk to temple bar from the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great St.Pattys Trip

Would recommend Thu, Jul 2, 2015
Overall for the price it was a great stay and the staff was amazing ! Wi-fi was a little frustrating at times. It's not right in the center of things but not that far away from great bars. Location isn't the best but not expensive as the hotels right where all the action is

Great retro decor and spacious room

Would recommend Sat, May 9, 2015
Room was spacious and loved the retro decor. Received a room upgrade as we arrived in the morning after an overnight flight and the hotel had a cancellation for the upgraded room. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there. Walked to downtown in 20 minutes. 7 minute walk to HopOn HopOff Bus. Value is great. It is still a saving to stay here and take a taxi into Temple Bar if you don't want to walk.
