TLDR - Scruffy and broken interior. Large amount of money from room stolen whilst out yet no door log of anyone going into the room whilst we were out (so someone in management or reception probably stole the money). Staying at this hotel means that your belongings won't be safe and will very likely be rifled through by someone looking for money. Manager was hopeless and disgustingly unprofessional and needs a course in customer service. Dampener on whole holiday. To begin with, pillows were raggedy and would do better in a skip. One drawer in the chest of drawers fell off and so was unusable. Underneath the bed skirting, the bed was ancient and stained. Hair dryer didn't work. Lampshade was wonky and battered. Window wouldn't close. Double bed had a massive dip in it so was clearly broken. No safety deposit box. Cleaner didn't speak english and by his reaction to us asking him to come back later, seemingly expected to come clean our room with what looked like a dirty rag whilst we were IN IT. €250 and £50 stolen from our room of three people (triple room) between 4:30PM and 11:30PM on final night of stay. One envelope of money was hidden under clothes in a sealed case and another envelope was fully sealed within a sealed document wallet within a sealed compartment in a sealed bag. Whoever stole the money knew it was our last night, knew we were out of the hotel for the evening and so they wouldn't be disturbed carefully going through our belongings as nothing was disturbed and everything had been resealed. We brought this to the attention of reception the following morning, who called a manager (Alex) down. One of the receptionists and the manager (Alex) barely seemed interested in the problem but the manager checked the door log to see if there were any intrusions. Nothing on the door log showed any entry between when we left and came back. The manager assured us no-one can get into the room without the door log showing it. Well, clearly they CAN and DID! So it could even be the management or receptionists THEMSELVES that stole the money since they have access to cards and logs. Not ONCE did the manager suggest he will look into this in more depth and check that the systems cannot be bypassed and not ONCE did he apologise for our troubles or even express any regard for his guests at all! He was disgustingly unprofessional and extremely rude and told us we had 'wasted his and his staffs time', had him 'dancing around' and that we should 'apologise to the cleaning staff and reception'. He told us it wasn't his fault that we were 'clearly not able to look after our money or remember where our belongings were'. We had been courteous and polite throughout and simply wanted to get to the bottom of this and as such were in absolute disbelief at how he was handling the situation. To say he was unprofessional and rude is to actually to underestimate how disgusting his behaviour was. We called the police and reported the incident so that there is a log of what had happened in the hope that it will help any future visitors to the hotel who end up in the same horrible situation. Don't let this be you. Collapse

The Grafton Capital Hotel is in a brilliant location near Stephen's Green, and therefore walking distance of almost anywhere, The rooms are good if you are just after somewhere comfortable to sleep, but could definitely do with a lick of paint. If you after a peaceful trip it could also be not for you, as it has a night club located on the ground floor. But overall, I have stayed here for quite a few years now, the staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location is great Collapse

Possibly the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. To start our stay we greeted by a foregin greasy haired guy with broken english that looked like the handy man. Booked the room with breakfast & on arrival we were told it was not included & that he'll tell the 'tech guy' because he didn't know what to do and the manager was not available (or so I was told to be fobbed off). The bed was not a 'full double' as advertised but was 2 singles pushed together (causing a gap). The hair dryer was broken, the shampoo/body wash was stuff you'd see in public toilets & finally WiFi Internet can only be got on the 1st floor-what's that about?! Terrible terrible experience! :( Collapse

Stayed here recently, it's very centrally located near grafton street, close to restaurants, pubs and shops. If you know what to expect from this hotel and get it a decent price it's worth the stay. It's by no means fancy and could do with many upgrades, but if your looking for a convenient place to stay in the city center this is the place. Bathrooms aren't that clean, bring your own cosmetics as cleaners seem to just top up and old bottle of soap . Collapse
Perfect location. Clean and Friendly.

Our 2 nights that we spent at the Grafton Hotel were great. The concierge was extremely helpful upon our arrival and she was always happy to offer advice whenever we asked. It was in a great location for the nightlife of Dublin and an easy walk to many of the cities infamous attractions. Overall our experience was pleasant. The rooms were spacious. The only downside is that there is only one location in the entire hotel that offers Wifi. So for travellers needing to book flights or further accommodation, you may find yourself hanging out on the First Floor. Collapse
