Nice location...but...

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 29, 2014
The hotel is an easy 5 to 15 walk to pretty much anything you want to do in Dublin. Interestingly, it is also home to Rotary Club #1 for Europe, so go for that too! However, the facilities, especially the bathroom are quite substandard and ragged. The tub is very narrow, causing the shower curtian to basically be stuck to you the whole shower (don't want to think how often or if this curtian is ever cleaned -- gross). The tub had yellow stains at the bottom of it due to bad drainage. The water pressure was not constant and would change from hot to cold and back to scalding in a matter of seconds dozens of times in the course of a short shower. The mattress was clearly old given the roll to center feeling of it. Pillows were nice and firm, though. If you like to walk this is a good hotel, but spend as little time as possible in your room.

Functional hotel close to Energy Theater

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 13, 2014
Hotel is functional and close to the Energy Theater. Nothing really fancy, in fact, it really needs to update its bathrooms and exercise area. Don't expect a "luxury" hotel.

Dining

Try dinner at the nearby Shoolhouse hotel. They have great pub food.

Fine accommodations for Dublin visit

Would recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
The Grand Canal Hotel was comfortable, clean and friendly with good breakfasts. We chose it for price and ratings. We like to walk and enjoyed the 20+ minute walk to central Dublin. There is a bus for € 2 a block away. I would recommend this hotel to business colleagues or friends traveling' to or through Dublin.

Overall, the room was nice and clean. The staff were helpful. One improvement that should be made is to tidy up the backyard that guests see through their windows if their rooms happen to face the back.

Good hotel, great staff

Would recommend Sun, Mar 23, 2014
My girlfriend and I went for the St. Patrick's Day celebration, it is a bit of a walk to the city center but nice hotel overall. The price was good and even taking a cab fare into consideration it was still a good value in the end.

Attractions

Get the Dublin pass and the hop on hop off bus pass and use the two together to get all of the sites.

Very convenient for business in Dublin city centre

Would recommend Mon, Jan 27, 2014
The hotel is very comfortable and clean and the staff are very friendly. I got a very fair price for mid-week room. It is 20 minutes walk from the city centre and is close to bus and rail links.
