Really nice hotel, good size room.
good size rooms.
A really nice 4* hotel located on the southside. Good size rooms, friendly reception and practically right on the river. It was a little bit of a walk (20 minutes) into the main dublin hotspots - Temple Bar and O'Connell Street but other than that, it was very nice.

good location viz-a-viz conference centre
location, layout of room
staff were responsive : called for taxi for us, assisted with day trips, had restaurant locations, tour of Dublin, brought fan promptly to the room, passed parcels promptly value for money : convenient location viz-a-viz the conference centre, great view across the bridge and river, happy with the layout of the room, housekeeping was very prompt. only bugbear was there was no wifi in a room on the 7th floor

Everything was lovely! The only thing that makes me give the hotel a 5 instead of a 4, is the bed. our backs hurt til the day after we left

room is good. Location is a bit far from station.
Clean and tidy room
better with self-laundry service
The hotel facility is basically good for stay. Room is tidy and clean. It is better if there is lotion/cream provided in the room.

Sleep here, but don't eat here.
Good, clean rooms.
Food quality was sub par to say the least, staff in bar and restaurant were not so great.
This hotel is good for a sleep. Rooms are clean and modern. Front desk staff are good. Hotel location is a 10-15min walk from the city centre. Breakfast is a massive rush with some people waiting up to 30 minutes to get a table. Trying to get dinner is an entire different story - due to the location there are no other places in close proximity where you can get dinner, so we had dinner in the hotel one night... Upon going to the hotel restaurant 'Stir', we were told very bluntly we would have to wait 45 minutes for a table, when at 8pm on a Sunday evening, there were few people actually in the restaurant to start with. We then proceeded down to the bar downstairs to see if we could get something there. After ordering and waiting for our meal, we were then delivered an incorrect order and told they had 'made a mistake, and hope that was ok'. Meanwhile we were still charged not only for the meal, but for the more expensive dishes that they served us - the cost of which we were unaware of at the time. Never mind the fact that everything served at this hotel appears to have come directly from a frozen box. It appears the Maldron still has a way to come in hospitality.

clean, comfotable bed and quiet.
I arrived late and the staff were very attentive and friendly. The room was great and I had a perfect nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. The room was spotlessly clean.
