Maldron Hotel Pearse Street
Ranked #76 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We booked a room for four, which consisted of a room with two queen beds, an electric water kettle, several packs of instant coffee, an old iron with iron board, a chair and small table, desk, a very outdated TV. The bathroom included stained towels and black mold was included free of charge. So were the little silver fish. The toilet had to be pumped three times to flush. What was lacking: A lot. No AC, no fans, no free internet. The pillows were terrible flat and the mattress probably still from the Holiday Inn times. Yes, the hotel used to be a Holiday Inn. The carpet should be replaced as it was so old and thinned out in various spots. The walls are very thin and you can hear other guests very well. It is a completely over-priced hotel. The staff is not very knowledge. The front desk staff should be fired, as they do not know what customer service actually means. If you text while checking in a customer, you would be working elsewhere. Breakfast was not included and when we inquired about it in the morning, the first question was about payment: Cash or credit card. We were not told what was included in the buffet. The staff also did not care if you enjoy your staff. They are only worried about payment. If you decide to stay at this hotel, make sure you drink plenty of alcohol so you get to a point where you simply do not care. I was disgusted.

Room Tip: Some rooms have AC. If you stay during the summer, request a room with AC.

Dublin was our last stop on a three week tour of Europe. We never stayed anywhere for more than two days and we stayed in many hotels. I have to say this was the worst of our entire trip.

First of all, stepping into our hotel room was like stepping back into 1978. Sad and old and dated.

Wifi... every singe hotel we stayed at during our three week tour of Europe had Wifi. Wifi included in the price of the room. Not this hotel. There was wifi available but the prices were insane. For my family of four and all our devices it would have cost a fortune. Yes, the cost is per device.

The water temperature in our sad old looking bathroom could not remain stable. It would be hot once second and cold the next.

Our room was hot and stuffy. I asked for a fan at the front desk. Not surprisingly all the fans were in use since I am sure we were not the only room dying of the heat. Our room was so hot and stuffy none of us could sleep well.

The TV was straight from 1978 and the picture was awful. It was a small tube TV.

The hair dryer was awful too. Again, straight from 1978. I could have got my hair dry faster by having my husband blow on it.

All in all an awful hotel and I will never be back. I am so sad this is how we ended our three week European holiday. What a bummer.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. Just don't. It's too hot and stuffy.

Stayed for one night in the quadruple room to go to a concert with my partner and two of his family members was basic comfortable warm and clean.
Located beside a pizza place and a shop. We got a takeaway on the way back from the concert from the pizza place and there was no problem bringing it back to room. There is a bistro downstairs but we didnt end up eating there but it looked lovely.

Hotel is a former Holiday Inn and you can see why this location was dropped long ago. The entire building is old and in need of care. From the flies in the lobby to the humid, hot rooms leaving you sticky (Windows only open 2 inches and there is not way to cool the room.) The place was visually clean but in need of an entire remodel. 1990's TV, creaky floors and beds and showers which jumped between ice cold and burning hot, regardless of where the knob was placed. Staff was less than courteous and for something as common as wi-fi there was a charge in excess of 20 euro per device, not per room.

Room Tip: Even taxi drivers (on three occasions) noted how terrible of a hotel it was. Surrounding area leaves...

First of all, unless you google-map this hotel and look at the scale, the map the hotel's website shows makes it look very close to town. It is not. Depending on how fast you walk, it can be 20 mins-30 mins (for a family with small kids) to just get to Trinity College. If you come from the airport, you had better take a cab because the Air Coach and Air Link only go to Trinity College (closest drop-off point). We took Air Coach and eventually after walking 3 blocks, we hailed a cab.

The rooms are clean and adequate, but you have to go downstairs and get cups and glasses for yourself if you want more than 2 in a Quad room. Likewise, the reception is quite dismissive and surly at times and not that helpful.

Rooms at the back are extremely quiet, which is the one big plus for this hotel. However, students and families with young kids stay here, and I can't say that about the quiet emanating from the corridors.

The hotel was $176/per night for four of us, and I felt that for that amount of $, the service should have been better. This was w/o breakfast also. The bar was not appealing so we did not try it, and the restaurant was only open on weekdays, so you have to hoof it into town for a decent meal, and that is probably going to take 30 mins at the least, for most restaurants are beyond Trinity College.

Additionally, you have to pay about $30/24 hrs for internet. Totally unacceptable. I would not stay here again.

This is the perfect hotel to stay in if you are catching a show in the Bord Gais Theatre. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the theatre. The hotel is old, but is nicely decorated. Rooms are big and clean. The staff were great. We couldn't find the underground car park (which is €10 overnight) and one of the guys on reception actually hopped in the car with us to show us the location and he carried both of our bags up to reception.
We did want to eat in the restaurant, but the menu was limited. The room was so hot (we stayed in July) even with the windows open over night - but most Irish hotels do not have air con so I can't fault it for that. Good value for money for the location.

+ The location is good, very close to Trinity College and Temple Bar, in Center. The staff was friendly and helpful enough. 24 hour reception. there was TV, iron, clothes dryer, table, some seats in the room. The room was spacious enough. Free tea/coffee facilities in the room, tea bags, milk and instant coffee provided every day. 5 towels provided and changed daily. The bed was comfortable enough and was made every day.

- No breakfast and no internet included and the price for double room was 122 eur/day. despite Dublin being an expensive city, these rooms are definitely overpriced. Internet could be bought separately at the reception and was very expensive (ca 8 eur per hour).
The furniture, TV, curtains and bathroom were old, there was a strange smell in the room, like in the cellar. The room was overlooking the road, the windows were thin therefore sleeping without the earplugs was rather impossible. The bathroom had very old dirty curtains and the bathtub was not very clean. In the room all the furniture looked very old and not clean (spots of tea/coffee on the chairs, scratched lamps and table, spots on the walls).

I did not like the hotel too much and find that for that price the quality of stay in *** hotel could be better (would expect to pay no more than 60-80 eur for that room and service). There are cheaper options in the same area with internet and breakfast included.

Room Tip: If you are lucky to get a room overlooking the inner yard and not the busy road, your room may be qu...
