Grand Canal Hotel Dublin, Dublin
Very Good8.0
Grand Canal Hotel
We were happy with our stay. Our bed was comfortable. The bedspread had stains on it, however. The bathroom was clean, bright, updated, and spacious. We didn't have heat in the first two nights. The front desk said it would take about two minutes for the radiator to start going. It didn't happen. We finally got heat on the third day. In general, the service at the front desk was adequate. We were provided with two bottles of complimentary mineral water everyday, which was much appreciated! We also had coffee and teas in the room. We walked to the city center on most days. We quite enjoyed our walks. On rainy days, or when we were in a hurry to catch a tour, we got a taxi from the front of the hotel. There are plenty of cabs all over Dublin. You can always find one easily. Taxi fares are reasonable. The Dart station is just a four minute walk from our hotel, which makes going to the city center, or to places farther out very convenient. I would recommend this hotel for your stay.

Great stay in Dublin
Great location, a short walk to pubs and restaurants. The pub connected to the hotel was a great place to have a pint. We didn’t get a chance to try the food there

Perfect Oasis in the Storm
The Hotel was amazing. Thomas worked hard to make sure we had a pleasant stay, despite the worst storm ever shutting down the city and all transport. The Gas Work Pub is attached to the hotel so we never had to go outside for food. Zach waited on us three times and was excellent. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Hotel was not near anything touristy, but in a cab or uber for between 7 to 12 euro you are at temple bar in a few minutes. And they have a prking garage.
