“Excellent location and a very nice hotel. If I return to Dublin I know where I'm staying.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The Maple Hotel gives you everything you need. The rooms have a genuinely nice feel to them, and are very presentable, cleanly and spacious. For a very good price you find yourself 5 minutes walk from Temple Bar and O'Connell Street and around 15 from any main attraction such as the castle, the cathedral and the Millennium Bridge. The hotel is a stones throw from Lower Gardiner Street bus stop (be it a tour bus or a standard city bus) and is around 15 minutes walk to Tara Street train station and appropriate tram stops. With friendly staff, nice rooms and a location that cannot be bettered for the price I was very happy with my stay at the Maple Hotel. I would strongly recommend it.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff are very friendly. The location is perfect (only a few minutes walk from the main street). There are staff available at all times and a small bar inside the hotel. The room was large and clean and was very welcoming. This hotel is not expensive and I would strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Dublin city centre

Our one-night stay here was nice and uneventful.
The private room was cheap and alright for our needs but I think it was cheaper than normal because it was located right next to a high traffic area used to access other rooms in the hotel.
There is a pub, I think, on the premises but we didn't go to it.
Would stay here again for the price and location.

Went over to see NKOTB on the 25th of May & struggled to find somewhere who hadn't shot their prices up due to the One Directions concerts so when we came across The Maple we were impressed they hadn't followed suit with the rest of the hotels in the city.

Easy enough to find and in a great location a few minutes from O'Connell street, the staff we're helpful even before we arrived in regards to a few emails sent back and forth and we're great upon arrival helping us to organise a taxi to our concert & at the end of our stay allowing us to keep our cases in the hotel so we could walk around the city without them.

Rooms were relatively modern and they were kept clean and tidy and towels were changed daily and having free wifi in the rooms were fantastic.

However, the hotel had an awful smell of smoke throughout and there was nothing that could get rid of the smell, considering all the rooms were non-smoking this smell had clearly stuck into the walls and carpets of the stairways and halls. The smell was extremely off putting and made you feel like you smelled of it all day.

Also, for a double bed we were given 3 pillows which just made no logical sense to anyone, another pillow would have been nice.

We will not be returning to this hotel simply because of the awful smell throughout the hotel, I would much rather pay an extra 100euro than stay in a place that smelled the way that did.

Our trip to dublin was to see WWE in the 02 on the 22 of may. We wanted to stay till Saturday and due to the one direction concerts almost all other hotels had bumped up their prices in a crazy manner to the Friday night.

We ended up finding the maple hotel and got a great deal which included a voucher for dinner in a restaurant in Temple Bar and a voucher for two irish coffees at the bar.

It is an old building but the room was clean with plenty of tea/coffee available in the room.

We stayed in a family room and everybody slept very well, the beds are very comfortable although maybe a few extra pillows would be nice!!!

Staff were all very friendly and efficient, the staff in the breakfast room were as good as any five star!!

This is two star accommodation, and it suited us perfectly.

One tip for the bar - If somebody orders tea, please serve in a mug!!!! My partner is tee total and it was the first time ever we served a mug of tea in a glass!!!!!!


We would stay here again as location suited us as a base for the touristy stuff perfectly.

This hotel was perfect for what we as a group needed it for. Although not the most stylish and modern hotel, it was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities one could wish for when on a city break with friends. Extremely close (5 minute walk) to the city centre - O'connel Street, which was great for getting the tour buses from, and using the spire as a point of reference.

Four of us shared a triple room at the back of the property. Although it's situated above a pub, we heard nothing during the night and slept very well. The beds were comfy, but a small downside was that there was a slight lack of good pillows on offer. We were purely using the room to sleep and wash in, and it suited our needs very well.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. They let us leave our luggage when we arrived at 8am, long before check-in, and again when we checked out at 11, but weren't flying until 5.

If you want 5 star treatment and amenities, then this isn't the hotel for you, but if you're looking for a very reasonably priced place to just lay your head at the end of the day, then this is perfect.

We stayed here for two nights recently. From the outside it looks okay but when you walked in you could smell cigarette smoke not just in reception but all up through the stairwells, that old ashtray smell. Didn't find the staff over friendly or helpful , no offer of help with our bags up 3 flights of stairs. The room was sort of okay , bed was comfortable. Chewing gum stuck to carpet by the bed and some strange liquid stain on the bed throw. Gardiner St is a main through road so it is very noisy traffic wise from early morning and from people returning from a night in Temple Bar.The general decor of the hotel is drab , dated and untidy. It is only rated 2 star but you do expect cleanliness however many stars you are awarded. We stayed in far better hotels on our week long trip for the same sort of money. Sorry but wouldn't stay here again or reccommend it .

Room Tip: At least try to get a room at the rear, it may be quieter.
