“take ear plugs if you face the street”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The Maple is one hotel in a long line of hotels on Lower Gardener Street popular with all ages of tourists.No lift so you have to tackle the stairs with a heavy suitcase.Rooms are adequate bathrooms are minute!..If you are in a room which faces the street you are in for an in please by night.If you have to open the window the noise level is acute.Breakfast is the full English breakfast and no variations possible.The hotel is full of eastern European staff some of whom could be attentive at breakfast time.

Room Tip: Dont overlook the street.

Myself, my husband and my child had booked to stay in this hotel. Unfortunately due to a family death we couldn't stay. They continued to take the money from my bank account and when I tried to ask them to change the dates for us they refused. They also refused to give me my money back. Absolutely disgusted that due to my circumstances this has happened, terrlible customer service and they never once contacted me back. I had to make numerous phone calls and send emails but they refused to reply. One very unhappy customer who travels to Dublin on a regular basis but would never deal with this hotel again!!

The location is great. I have to emphasize that two ladies at the reception were very polite and kind, thanks to them we have felt a relief the last day of our staying at the hotel as we could leave our luggage till the time of our train departure and have got some valuable information of how to get to some city locations. Thank you for that.

This place is called hotel, but I can not say that it looks like and functions like hotel...the room the we have got was not a part of the hotel building but some auxiliary built rooms in a separate small outdoor location. We had to put the curtains all the time as everybody passing by could look into the room, but bigger problem was the use of showers. Actually, the bathrooms had showers but to take a shower one had to get out the shower and turn on the water on the switch that is located in the dormitory, then to put the shower gel on one has to go again from the bathroom to the dormitory, to switch off the water, and of course to wash off the shower gel you should repeat the procedure. So you have to go from the bathroom to the dormitory several times which is annoying and depressing :( Simply put, if you travel alone you have a big problem, and this seems like a solution for showering from some earlier centuries... If you want to wash your face or teeth, you have to chose between extremely hot water or cold water, as there are two faucets, and to get the water on each of them you have to hold it with one hand while washing the face and teeth with other....:( Another problem is that if you need an adapter you will not get it on the reception, you have to buy it, they do not give a damn if it is midnight and you need to charge your batteries urgently or need to dry your hair...and of course, there is no dryer in the room, if you have not taken it with you from your home....well that is also your problem. And, if you need Wi Fi at that precise location where we had a room (let's call that a room) you will not get it (there is no possible way to connect to it!), although it is free and u can use it at the reception only....in total, it was very, very disappointing experience.

Room Tip: Try not to get the room at the auxiliary yard part of the hotel....

I stayed at this hotel with my mom for 5 nights in June. Apparently we were lucky with the location of our room, as it was really quiet during the night time.

The location is good as you can easily walk to the city centre. There was also a Tesco store really near if you want to buy some snack food. If you are really sensitive to smoke smell this place might not be for you as there is a pub inside the hotel where people can smoke. However, the smell didn't reach our room at all and to be honest it didn't bother us that much when we were passing through the halls and the reception area.

The staff was really helpful and we were able to leave our luggage at the hotel reception when we checked out as we had an evening flight.

The Maple hotel is a budget hotel just a few minutes walk from Busaras. Rooms are small and clean. Try and get a room facing aay from Lower Gardiner st, as it can be fairly noisy at night. Breakfast is provided if you book direct with the hotel or €7.50 (you get cereal, a small 'Irish fry', toast, OJ and tea/coffee) for your money.

Staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel has plenty of information about attractions. They also let you leave luggage during the day. Would stay there again

Room Tip: Away from main street

the worst hotel of my life. the room was dirty, spots on the carpet and the beds. noise of pipe who wake you up every night. Forget the "pub" adjacent the hotel, irish coffee was disgusting, and the barman smokes in the pub (we saw him).
The breakfast: the Irish it's just passable, and the continental you have no choice, no bread, no croissant.
Don't go in this hotel if you can. the price was too expensive for the proposed services.

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.
