“The Pros out weigh the cons”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

It is a clean hotel in the Smithfield area in close walking proximity to a LUAS stop, Hop On-Hop Off bus stop, and the Dublin bus 747 airport ride. It is also about 10 to 15 minutes away from Temple Bar on foot. There is a supermarket next to it with an ATM. Also close walking distance to some restaurants and pubs. The rooms are okay although the furniture is a little worn and as others have said the televisions are vintage. The real negative is the lack of air conditioning or even a fan in the room to circulate air. I think that is a predominate issue for most hotels in Dublin. There was one small window that could be opened but we never could get a breeze in. The staff was courteous and helpful. You can buy the hop on hop off and airport bus tickets at the desk. If you are coming in on a package be aware they will charge you a tax not included in the package deal. It is based on the number of people and the rating of the hotel. This hotel is rated as 3 star. We stayed a week and was charged $78 US. Would we use it again? Yes.

Room Tip: Our room was 522 on the back side which faced some apartments. It could get a little noisy at night...

Hotel staff (Ginare?) was extremely helpful in accommodating our room request. 2 blocks from Luas and good access to downtown. Grocery store next door provide snacks and sodas as well as an umbrella. Room was more than adequate.

Recently I stayed at the Maldron Smithfield on two occasions within a week's excursion in Ireland. Situated in the district of Smithfield overlooking the famous Jameson Distillery, the Maldron Smithfield was suitably placed for exploration of the city centre either via tram at the other end of the square or an approximate 20 minutes walk. On both occasions the staff were friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The car park facility was also very useful particularly as we were travelling by car. Great places to eat nearby too.

I had no prior knowledge of this hotel, but I definitely lucked out! Our room was spacious and clean and the breakfast was lovely. It was only a 5 minute drive, or 20 minute walk to O'Connell St. and the price was extremely reasonable. Reception needs more staff, but that is my only complaint. I will definitely book here again when staying in Dublin.

Room Tip: The junior suite was only a little bit more per night, but was very specious and had a wrap-around b...

Great spot for a short stay. I stayed overnight for work and it was perfect for what I needed - clean & comfortable rooms, speedy breakfast and convenient to public transport. Love the idea that you can order in pizza or order room service and reception will let you know when ready and you can collect rather than pay an extra tray charge. Staff very friendly.

I recently spent 5 nights at the Maldron. The room was comfortable and spacious. The staff was knowledgeable about restaurants, ground transportation, nearby sights and they were quickly responsive to a couple of maintenance issues like a burnt out light bulb. The breakfast service was reasonably priced and plentiful.
