Reasonable priced Central 3* Hotel
I booked a twin and a triple room here, through www.Booking.com for 5 of us. We were looking for somewhere reasonable, and within easy reach of O'Connell Street and Temple Bar. We were only in Dublin for 24 hours, and had an early flight from Dublin Airport, so wanted to be near the Airport Bus Stop in O'Connell Street. (In the end, we booked a taxi for the convenience)
We had arrived in Dublin at 07.30, and as we only had light bags, we spent the morning in Howth, before returning to Dublin to check into the Maldron. Check in is from 1400hrs.
This hotel was quite easy to find. (Although its claim of being 2 minutes from O'Connell Street, was a bit misleading- more like 5+ minutes)
Check in was fairly painless, although the receptionist was a bit confused, when we wanted to split the bill (227.10 Euros) equally between the 5 of us (The 2 rooms were different prices), but this was soon sorted out.
As we were leaving so early, we wouldn't need breakfast (Which was extra). The dining room was open, and had a special offer on, but we wanted to eat out. The menu looked quite good though.
I was in the triple room, which was warm, clean and comfortable.
3 single beds, wardrobe space and coat hooks, TV, kettle, Iron and Ironing board, hairdryer, Air con/heating, Hi speed Broadband connection. Complimentary WIFI in the lobby.
Bathroom-Power Shower over the bath, WC, Wash Basin, towels. Complimentary Shower gel/shampoo and Hand Wash.
We requested an early morning alarm call, which we got at the allotted time, and the taxi we ordered through reception was there on time too.
I'd certainly consider staying here again.
