lovely hotel

Very pleased with hotel, airport bus drops off at conference centre for a 5 min walk over Samuel Beckett bridge. Well placed for steady walk , about 20 mins, to O2 arena, Aviva stadium , Temple bar or O'Connell street areas etc. Staff welcoming, polite and helpful. Lovely spacious room, very clean, fresh towels. Tea, coffee etc. topped up daily. Didn't have breakfast, thought it was a little pricey , went to city centre instead, loads of places to eat. Would have been a 5 star if they included breakfast considering total cost of stay Overall a lovely hotel, would recommend

Lovely Short Break

Lovely hotel, great room, pool and other leisure facilities good, and within walking distance from Dublin City Centre. And the food in the Restaurant was fantastic. We got a good deal on this too, so it was great value for money. Would certainly recommend this Hotel.

Easy and comfortable

Really easy to get to from the Airport, the hotel swimming pool and gym was brilliant. Don't forget a swimming cap. Also, bring your own shampoo. The restaurant was fine, but not worth going out of the way for if you're not staying at the hotel.

Great hotel, great location, great fitness center!

This really was an incredible value. Biggest, best fitness center I've ever seen at a hotel. It's so good, it's open to the public and has members from the local area. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Huge thumbs up!

Maldron, Dublin

Corridors were dirty: full of dirty sheets/towels and plates with remains of food all day. We were given the wrong room type and it wasn't changed.

Really fantastic!

After a few weeks of driving around Ireland and staying in (very lovely but small) B and B's, walking into the Hotel Maldron Cardiff Lane was awesome. Very luxurious, super clean, and well staffed, with a couple of good bars, a decent restaurant, and nice areas to lounge. My room was very large, well appointed, and had a balcony with a view of the Liffey, all at a lesser rate than I found anywhere else in town. The hotel is also well situated- it is about a twenty minute walk from the center of Dublin, but its position on the Liffey is lovely, and the neighborhood is safe and quiet. If you wanted to take a taxi to town, it would cost you about 6 Euro. The only room for improvement is in the room service. The first time they sent up the wrong item, but were great and fast about replacing it. The second time they charged me for an add-on item that I did not request or receive. I did not notice the error until the next day when I reviewed the receipt. I assume that they would have made it right, but two errors in two orders are not good odds. Overall, a great experience. On any return trip to Dublin, Hotel Maldron Cardiff Lane has my business.

Just ok

We arrived early to find that we could check into our hotel room early - great after an early morning flight. However, the room was large but extremely cold, only to be told by reception that the heating is only turned on for a few hours a day (considering that its only 2 degrees c outside - you'd think they'd leave it on for longer). We asked for an electric heater, which we needed all weekend. The pool area is ok, but there weren't any loungers so you couldn't relax with a magazine or a book. But the jacuzzi, steam room and sauna were all great. We went to the Heaven beauty room to book some treatments, only to be told that the therapist works in other hotels and would have to be booked well in advance. But looking at the grubby surrounding in there, and the lack of relaxing ambience, maybe it was a blessing in disguise. The hotel was quite far from the main shopping areas, and for the night life - we had to get a taxi at 8 euros each time. Overall, an ok hotel, but I wouldn't book it for the spa area or the location again.
