Superb 9.0 From 832 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Superb hotel, great service
This was definitely our favourite hotel during our Ireland trip. Spacious room, wonderfully firm bed, and a shower stall I can only describe as decadent. (No bathtub, but we don't use one.) The location was ideal for us (about a 15-minute walk from the Convention Centre) and would probably be good for Trinity College as well. There's also a friendly pub/restaurant connected to the hotel, with great food and a wide selection of beer. The only downside is that the room wasn't air-conditioned. Eleven months out of the year I expect that's no problem, but it was mid-August and the room was too warm. A call to the front desk resulted in a fan being delivered to our room in about two minutes -- excellent service!

Good 6.0
The room lacks ventilation. It was extremely hot and stuffy. Also, drainage in sink was very poor.

Grand Canal Dublin
Clean, quiet, close to bus but far from the main action of Dublin. Friendly and helpful. White duvets, lots of fluffy pillows. Options for a snack/drink. Lovely breakfast.

Grand Canal Gem
Great location and close enough to walk to many main attractions. Walking along the pathways beside the grand canal and watching boats go through the locks was fun! W3 would stay here again.

Dublin Central excellence!
We've stayed many times in Grand Canal. Very central to restaurants in Grand Canal Dock & Baggot St. Short walk to Grafton Street 15 minutes. Was raining one of the days - the taxi we ordered at desk was there in 2 minutes. Breakfast is always good.

Pleasant stay
Really nice hotel. Room and general hotel lobby, bar etc clean tidy and comfortable. Location was good for us. Only negative is the food in the bar. Overpriced and poor quality. However there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel so it wouldnt put me off coming back just would not eat there.

Fair 4.0
Not as good as our other regular stays
We stay here very regularly and always find it to be excellent. However, on this occasion, we were allocated a room on a floor that was having a lot of work done on it. We didn't bother saying anything about it as we were only staying for 1 night but we would like to have been told by reception when checking in about the ongoing works.
