I was travelling alone from the UK and needed one night's stay in central Dublin ahead of the Marathon on 28th October.
The Maple was within easy walking distance from the city centre and, considering how close it was, was located on a relatively quiet main street (albeit it was a Sunday evening when I arrived).
I had a twin room with en-suite toilet and shower. Yes, it was basic, but what did I expect for Eur42? What I didn't expect was how clean the room was, as was the en-suite. There were towels, soap and shower gel. The main room had a small and basic tv but it was fine. There was also a kettle and tea/coffee ready for the morning. The room was more than adequate for my needs. The room overlooked the main raod and with single glazing there was the inevitable traffic noise, but nothing worse than I'd experienced before. Ear plugs are always the answer to that little problem and I was prepared!
Next door and also further but only a couple of minutes' walk away are some great restaurants. There's also a Tesco express round the corner.
All in all I had everything I needed at a very affordable price to give me the comfortable night I needed. The next day I checked out at 7am and made my way to the start of the Marathon. the third time I've run Dublin and I got a new personal best time!
I would definitely revisit the Maple and would recommend this to anyone in search of clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation.
