Grand Canal Hotel Dublin, Dublin, Ireland
Excellent accommodation and amenities. Great cafe in lobby and pub next door. Within walking distance of Dublin's Grafton Street. Staff very polite and accommodating

Grand Canal
The hotel is conveniently located for those wishing to use the airport shuttle bus. Breakfast was good and room was suitable for our needs. Staff were helpful and friendly. Within walking distance of the main attractions. Our only complaint was the very hard bed and soft (no support) pillows - sleep wasn't what it needed to be.

Convenient and Clean Hotel
Great service during check-in and really helpful personnels overall. Clean, no fuss hotel with great options for breakfast (full Irish, continental, and great option for healthy juice - love!). What's not so great: a. View - it's our first time to Dublin and we requested a higher floor with a nice view. Instead, we were put on 3rd floor, with back alley + garbage view. b. Smoke on the floor - heavy cigarette smoke smell (even though it's a non smoking floor) but the hotel was really helpful in cleaning the smell. c. A few buttons on the phone, doesn't work. E.g. we wanted to order room service but noone picked up.
