My friend and I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night. The rooms were very comfortable and cosy. We arrived early and it was no problem to leave out bags and go off site seeing. Good location for Temple Bar (10 minutes walk) and right beside St Stephen's Green and Trinity College plus all the shopping on Grafton Street. Unfortunately we missed breakfast as enjoyed a very late night out in Dublin. The good thing was Check out was 12 noon and if you did make breakfast it was served until 11.

Granted the location is great for shops and Temple Bar and other Tourist attractions, but this is where it stops. There were a lot of issues, to highlight a few, I had booked a non smoking room, but the room smelt really bad. There were cigarette burns on the net curtains and in the bathtub and the windowsill was littered with cigarette butts which made for a lovely view. The decor was old, nothing like what you get on the website, everything was peeling and looked like it needed replacing. I had a twin room and one of the beds felt like it was made out of bricks, thank goodness I did not have to sleep on it! The room was also very dusty and did not look very clean. I made an enquiry about wi-fi and was told there was wi-fi in the rooms. There is not, and although they do have a computer and printer in the public area, you have to put euros in it to get it to work.
To add to all this the hotel is joined with the Break for the Border bar which has regular student nights both in the week and at weekends which go on until 3am. Expect to be able to sing along to One Direction with all the other screaming girls in the bar.

Similar experience as others - the location is great, the prices are fairly reasonable, but the place was just tired and a little depressing to hang out it (fortunately we didn't want to hang out much anyway). Our non-smoking room smelled of smoke, there were cigarette burns in the curtain, and worst of all - in 3 days we never got consistently hot showers. If location & cost is your primary consideration, it's a good deal. Otherwise, I'd steer away.

Just back from a two night stay here. Room was very tired, windows were loose and walls are thin. Shame because it could be made into a really nice hotel with a little clean up.

Some of the staff were unfriendly, one or two were Ok but none of them really made me feel welcome.

Good points are the location and a good breakfast selection.

I have just stayed for two nights at the Grafton Capital Hotel. The location is great, just below Temple Bar. I was here for business and so wanted somewhere central.
The rooms are all very basic and to be honest all look a little tired. Also there was a fair amount of street noise however if you are wanting a central location you have to expect this.
The one thing that I found irritating was I needed to be able to access wifi for work. However there is no wifi in the rooms. They do have wifi in what they call the guests lounge. This is actually a hallway outside of the lifts on the 1st floor. This affords you no privacy and it is also a walkway through to the restaurant so not great. Also I found the wifi very very weak and slow.
If you are here for a few days. A tip - if you need strong wifi there is a Starbucks just down the road!

Room Tip: Ask for one on the higher floors - otherwise you will hear the noise from Break For The Border attached to the hotel
