The hotel is well maintained and has great location.

Property was well kept and staff was attentive. Price was high being a summer weekend in Dublin. while paying $300 a night they could have included breakfast. Hot Irish breakfast was 14.99 euro extra but if you skipped the hot plates you could pay for a continental breakfast that turned out to be $12.50 so one may as well get the full breakfast. There was a little coffee bar cafe in the lobby that served pastries and coffee which was irritatingly closed during breakfast hours apparently so there isn’t competition for the breakfast crowd.😡

Beautiful rooms, friendly service, excellent breakfast.

The staff was great. They answered all questions and were helpful with arranging transportation, making recommendations, etc.

New hotel, nice view, very nice employees, we really enjoy and will stay in the same grand canal hotel again

The mattress was too soft. The hair dryer is not in the bathroom. It is hidden in the desk. The plug in the bathroom does not fit the hairdryer plug.

Convenient location , helpful staff. Within walking distance of central Dublin

Clean room. Friendly staff, especially at the pub in the hotel. Outside of city center but close enough to walk or minimal taxi fare.

Convenient pay parking and easy access to Dublin tourist destinations .

From check in to check out the hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again when I'm in Dublin.

Perfectly situated in a quiet neighborhood, but easily enough to get to anywhere. If I had any cons it would be the lack of dresser drawers, but that pretty minor. One added part that made our day end with a lot of laughs was the bartender Jerry O'Reilly at the Gasworks bar.

The hotel is clean, comfortable and located in a quiet, safe area. It is a bit of a walk to the main part of town, but after strolling the busy streets of downtown Dublin it was nice to return to a less hustle/bustle area of town. The restaurant connected to the hotel had good food and very friendly wait staff.

We were pleased with the hotel overall. A nice spacious room, clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well throughout. This hotel is across from two big tech firms so my guess is they need to keep up for the young business techies, a good thing. Breakfast was pretty good, I do a lot of travel and this was serviceable, nothing stood out good or bad. They do need to start earlier for the business crowd, 7am is too late. I was on business and picked this because it was close to the train station so I could get to my site while also close to downtown for my wife. Overall I think that worked but do note all the tourist things start with a 15 minute walk, go along the canal for a pleasant experience. Overall a solid experience and I would do again.

Real close to the city center. Train across street, bus 5 minute walk. Grand canal hotel is secure, with parking, The staff was exceptional helpful and courteous. The rooms are clean, and beds were comfortable. Hop on hop off bus (green bus) come to hotel, and the red bus is 10 minute walk.

Nice hotel in a good location - DART station right around the corner. 15 minute walk to Grafton Street, St Stephen's Green, Temple Bar. Nice restaurants and pubs right next to the hotel. Only complaint: room temperature can't be controlled, and it was very warm, even with windows open. We requested a table fan, which did help. Staff very courteous and helpful. We will return !

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.

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.
