Paint peeling or chipped in many areas, ripped curtains in our room, lumpy mattress, one thin pillow. Large gouged out hole in bathroom cabinet where there had been a built-in tissue box ( I think). Dirty shower curtain, dirt or stains on wooden sides of beds, dirt behind furniture. Scary looking couches on first floor for WiFi, you really don't... More

We stayed at the Grafton Capitol Hotel for 2 nights from 17th April 2015. The hotel is very central for all sights of Dublin but as earlier reviews have stated it could do with a facelift. All rooms are fairly spacious with fully equiped bathrooms. I believe this hotel has recently been taken over which will no doubt increase the... More

Opposite the famous Post Office, this large,stylish hotel provides an excellent night's sleep. We had an offer which did not include breakfast or a view, but it was ideally situated for our journey and needs. the service was very friendly and the room was truly everything we expected. I should imagine that the more expensive rooms would be fantastic.

This hotel is full of old world charm. Yes it could do with a paint job but from going up to the revolving door at the entrance to the warm welcome we received and the large comfy room couldn't complain. Fab hotel right in the middle of the city centre. 2 minute walk to st stephens green. 5 min walk... More

Stayed on a Friday and Saturday night last weekend. Not a bad place to crash for two nights if you plan on hitting the town and only sleeping there as it is very well located. Yes, it is a bit dated, but so is Dublin in general, which adds to its charm! Had the breakfast on Saturday morning, but it... More

Stayed in this hotel last weekend as part of a weekend away with the lads. The hotel is very centrally located. On arrival I was greeted by a lovely receptionist and had a chat and a joke with her. In fact any time I passed/spoke with reception staff they were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much for them. On... More

A good place to stay, hotel is in easy walking distance of the Temple Bar area and for the St Stephens Shopping centre, The Gaiety Theatre. The Hotel is on the tired side and looks to be in need of a new décor. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Irish breakfast is very good and is a buffet style,... More

Just got back today, hotel a little worn in places but beds extremely comfy, hot water and a good bath/shower which is all you need when your looking for a city break. Close to the shopping centre, and not far from temple bar. Would definitely stay here again.
