Grafton Capital Hotel
Ranked #124 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Dublin within walking distance of all sightseeing locations. Also, many pubs and restaurants are really close to the hotel.

Unfortunately, the hotel is old and has not been refurbished for centuries. Bedroom is clean, in contrast to the rest of the hotel.

If you find a cheap deal on booking.com or wherever, go for it. But do not expect too much.

This hotel was very close to shopping, eating, and bars. We easily walked to Temple Bar from here, as well as the Guinness storehouse and St. Patrick's cathedral.

No Internet in the rooms which was a pain. Even in the common area Internet was hard to connect to. Lastly there is no parking though there is a parking garage a few blocks away you can park at for a fee.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

We usually stay at Trinity Capital on Pearse street and I've always seen the two hotels linked in name,.. thinking they are sister hotels. In reality they are nothing alike. There is an American Western theme running throughout the hotel and I found it confusing. I didn't go to Ireland to see western themes, I can stay home for that.
This was difficult to find and took us an hour. We visit twice a year and are familiar with the city so this isn't the case of a lost tourist. The hotel could use some updating and the street noise is ridiculous. We had a choice of open windows (no fan or air) and people partying or a warm stuffy room. Not certain this is a great location for a hotel. Perhaps if you arr planning a hen party and shoppimg, then yes.

Room Tip: Parking nearby, but a terrible location by map or GPS directions. Perhaps better signage.

This hotel is perfectly located for anyone who wants to explore central Dublin - only a few steps from Grafton Street. It has a lovely surprising private courtyard entrance. The rooms were clean and comfortable with hair dryer, iron and tea/coffee. I stayed mid week so did not experience the night club noise that others have commented on. I was particularly impressed with the breakfast offering for only 9.95. Extremely good value. For a city centre hotel it is great value overall. Do book it via trip advisor or other on line site however as booking directly with the hotel is actually more expensive. (I was surprised that they could not match the rate quoted on line).
I was disappointed the didn't have a bar as I would have enjoyed sitting in the courtyard sipping a drink in the evening. However I will definitely return next time I stay in the city simply because of its good price and its great location.

As we approached the hotel we couldn't believe how central it was. The rooms are clean spacious but a bit dated. The breakfast was buffet style and very good.
As for value we won the stay in a competition.
Would I stay there again probably not unless i got a cheap deal as there are cheaper better value hotels in dublin

Overall, the Grafton had a great location in Temple Bar. Our room was very nice too. However, our window faced a bar that played pretty loud music until late. But that's not the worst of it! One night, actually about 2:00 a.m. someone tried to enter our room and the key they used actually opened our door! Luckily I had put the chain on the door. It gets better, the clerk told us it was impossible and acted like he didn't believe what we told him! They re-keyed the room the next morning.
