This hotel is situated right in the center of Dublin, 2 minutes from the main shopping area, 10 minute walk to the Temple Bar Square, 20 minute walk to the Guiness factory and in amongst all the restaurants and pubs. The staff on reception were very helpful and the room had everything we needed. All amenities worked well and bedroom/bathroom was clean. The decoration is not very modern and there is no main light in the bedroom (see photo!), only two lamps either side of the bed, but great value for money nonetheless. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you are going to Dublin for a few days! Collapse

I booked this before reading the reviews and I am so glad I did because the place is great right in the centre by Stephens Green Grafton Street etc. I was dreading it after reading the bad reviews but I have to say the place is great. - reception staff so nice and friendly. The room I booked was a twin room it was large, beds v comfy large bathroom very clean rooms very warm and at night I expected it to be very loud but it was fine they have great heavy curtains on windows which helps. Free breakfast if booking with hotel direct. I would definitely stay here again so handy for shopping, going out. Collapse

Getting accommodation in Dublin was proving to be very difficult. I had arrived a week earlier in Sept 2016, for the academic term and Trinity College and had already spent a week looking for accommodation, but to no avail. My booking at my previous place had expired and I had to shift to another place. None of the other B&B's and hotels were available, so I came across Grafton Hotel and decided to book here. It is very conveniently located, bang in the middle of city center and very close to tourist hotspots, Temple Bar, Trinity College, etc. The surrounding areas are not the best, as there are many bars around and the street can get full of drunk people walking around late at night, so it is not advisable to venture out very late. The staff at the reception were very welcoming and the check - in process was very smooth. I got a very large deluxe double - room. However, one look at the room and you can tell that the place is in need of an overhaul. The carpet looks old and dated as well as the furniture. There is a TV in the room, but it does not work at all! The bathroom is very nice and clean and there is ample storage space for the luggage, clothes, etc. It can get noisy late at night since the Hairy Lemon Bar is right opposite and lots of people hang around there till late, however it did not bother me as I was very tired on both nights from all the wandering around. This place offered me a complimentary breakfast, as I booked online, and the variety was good. You can choose the Irish or Continental Breakfast..but I highly recommend the Irish one as you get a lot more variety. The breakfast was very satisfying to say the least and I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt energized for the rest of the day. All in all, a very good stay at the Grafton. Since I was out most of the day, the only time I was in the hotel was at night, so I did not really spend much time there. However, it definitely needs to be renovated, especially the rooms, as the upholstery, carpeting, curtains, etc are dated. The TV's also need to be changed as well! However, it is a good option to stay as it is one of the cheaper hotels in the city (though still marginally overpriced for what they offer). Do book online to avail of the free breakfast, as it is something you should not miss. I would not recommend this hotel for families with small children though. Collapse

The location of the hotel was perfect for exploring Dublin and the rooms were a good size and the the stag were extremely helpful. However the first room we were given wasn't great. The beds didn't join together and the sheet the covered the bed base was filthy. The curtain rail looked like it was clinging on to the wall but only just. However on raiding the issues with the staff we were moved to another room which was acceptable. The rooms just felt that they needed a bit of TLC. Collapse
Very conveniently located hotel for good price

I've stayed in this hotel twice- in 2013 and in 2015. There's no reason to stay anywhere else, as it's well located and reasonably priced. If you're looking for a new and shiny luxury hotel, this isn't it. It could use some refurbishing, but it's perfectly suitable and the convenience of its location is a big plus that makes it a winner to me. Rooms are medium sized and very reasonable, the beds are comfortable. The only hitch I encountered was their wifi, which was come and go when I was there, but it seems they were having technical difficulties with it at the time. Collapse
