“Curse you live band night”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We had the bad luck of staying here during live music night. Our room was thumping until around 1230 when we finally got some quite. I guess we should have gone down and enjoyed our selves but we had to wake up super early to drive across the country. That being said, the room we received was small and cramped. The bed was WAY to soft though clean. We had high hopes for this place....unfortunately it didn't work out.

TIP: If you are driving beware the "free street parking". The street is PACKED (or at least it was the night we stayed there) and I ended up having to walk some distance just to get back to the BB. Also if the front desk recommends any places to eat or drink....simply ignore them and go down town. In an effort to demonstrate there excellent location we were told to walk 20 minutes into "down town". This area was shady and miserable. The real down town area is an other 10 minutes walk and nice.

Room Tip: I would say try to book a room on the top floor, but then you'd have to walk up a lot more steps...

Second stay here. Parking is a problem, or at least it is for the neighbours! checked with reception if it was ok to park opposite the hotel and was told yes. The next morning...a bollard was on the roof and a big dent and scratches to the paintwork! Needed to change rooms for the second night as there was a birthday party in and the noise went on till half five! That said, they lost my reservation upon arrival and tried to charge me the summer high rate in March! All in all, the staff are really friendly and the breakfast is excellent. Its good value for its location but best to avoid the weekends!

The staff here make this hotel.. Lovely welcome could not do enough for you.. Food looked really good, although I was going out for a meal so did not taste it.. Rooms are on the small side and walls are paper thin so that is only reason I did not give it 5 stars..
Would stay again..

Room Tip: Parking is free on street, but if there are games on in Croke Park it could be harder to find

1. Superfriendly and efficient staff ready to cater to all your needs. (I had an early flight on my departure from Dublin and even though I was at the hotel's front desk at a dreadful hour waiting for my taxi to the airport, I was given tea to get me through the day!) 2. Rooms were very functional - the closet, the desk, the mirrors and the hangers, etc. all in the right places. 3. The hotel is located in a quiet area but it's easy and fast to get to the city centre. 4. You can enjoy a pint of ale in the hotel and have your lunch and dinner there.
I am definitely going to stay at the Maples House Hotel again!!!

This is a lovely spot just a few mins north of the city centre in Dublin. I worked in the area for many years and had lunch here on many occasions. They have a very nice restaurant and bar menu and you can get something to eat at any time of the day. The chicken wings are the best in Dublin, no matter what you've heard, you need to try the Maples chicken wings, you won't be disappointed!!!

My new wife and I had a great time here. The staff, Anne Marie especially, was warm and very helpful. The bar downstairs gets very lively, albeit not so lively it disturbs the rooms, with locals who love the bar. I would give it 5 stars, but the room is a little small. The room was clean and the bed VERY comfortable. The hotel is centrally located and we had no problems walking to city centre or catching a bus for a little further into downtown. The food in the restaurant was very good and the chicken wings were pretty darn close to what you would find in the States. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Dublin.

Stayed at Maples House on a couple of occasions. Unbelievable value for a city location, so close to centre. Room was small but v clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful and food was good. Highly recommended. No hotel parking but plenty on well lit street close by. If you are looking for a good night's sleep for a bargain price, this is the hotel for you.
