Good chain but ok hotel

My first impression of the hotel was how strange a setting it had. There's a big sparse area out the front with nothing there. The reception staff were nice and sent us up to a lovely clean room- very important! We stayed 3 nights and on the first night the shop next to the hotel were doing big renovations- this is during the night! Wasn't impressed as you'd think the hotel would say something to them considering they've arguably hundreds of people staying in their hotel. It does get noisy out the front. The other nights sleep were lovely. And you're in a 10 minute walking distance from the Guinness Storehouse and 40 minute walk to Dublin Zoo (or 10 euro taxi ride!!). There's a shopping area not too far away and a Cinema. It's also a good location in terms of being 5 minutes from the Dublin Airlink drop off at Ushers Quay. The breakfast was lovely, but we didn't pay in advance, so was told it was 10 euros for full and 6 euros for continental. However, when we went the second day we asked for just continental and was told it was 10 euros. When we said we'd been told the day before that it was 6 the manager said 'we can't keep tabs over what you're eating.' Professional aye! All in all, I'd say I'd go to another Maldron Hotel on a visit to Ireland but it wouldn't be this one. I'd got closer to Temple Bar. Oh, and there's no air conditioning, so the room gets hot.

Nice Place to Stay in Dublin

We chose this for location (out of the craziness of Temple Bar or more expensive places to the south) and price. It was a nice place to stay in a more local area--you get a feel of what it would be like to live in Dublin. You can't miss with the Luas nearby to get you closer to the action, but Dublin is small and walkable, too. The one odd thing is a booming noise from the square in the morning (Jameson barrels being loaded, maybe?). Recommend!

The amenities nearby are great--Fresh food store and cafe, Third Space for a terrific breakfast, Cobblestones bar for a pint and music every night, even the Lighthouse cinema which is nearby and has a late night cafe and bar. Staff is nice, rooms are fine and cleaned well.

ok for the money..but nothing more

nice staff. but the beds are too small. there was something wrong with the light in the room they had to fix. and the sink didnt work well. a bit dissapointed from the hotel. and the biggest dissapointment is reception didnt know what is "all star hotel: and this hotel is all star hotel . all the program is about loyalty and this hotel probably doesnt respect this programm of this website.

Doing Dublin

Hotel was only a block away from a Luas stop that goes downtown Dublin and conveniently had a grocery store nearby which was handy for snacks. Staff was very responsive to requests for taxis, wake-up calls, extra towels, etc. Room was always clean.

Suited us just fine

For a City break, this hotel is ideally located. Within walking distance of many things and very close to the Luas line which is a 3 minutes walk from the hotel. Some nice eateries and pubs in the vicinity, we didn't eat in the hotel, so we can't comment on that. Special rate is available in the underground car park for hotels guests provided you don't remove it during your stay. Wouldn't want to be out walking too late in the Smithfield area because of some local 'characters'. Room would benefit from a small personal safe. Otherwise it suited us fine.

Make sure to pay a visit to the National Museum at Collins Barracks just a 10 minute stroll from the hotel. It's free of charge and well worth a visit.

Time for a deep clean

This hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, only a short tram ride from many tourist sites which made it convenient. The staff are friendly enough. The rooms, however ,need some attention. For starters, there is no A/C in the rooms. Second, the carpets and walls need a deep cleaning! There was a faint smell of urine in one corner of the room. The tv did not work, not a big deal for me but the sports addicts missed their fix. Skip the hotel restaurant, there are better options within walking distance.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is just short block from the Laus Tram ride into downtown Dublin. Buy your Leap pass for public transport before leaving the airport to save time and money!

I would stay there again

it's close enough to walk to wherever you want to go which works well for me. Hotel was nice and a good value in what seems to be a pricey city.
