“One of the Maldron's little gems!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

Stayed in the Maldron Parnell Square recently and was delighted with both the service, accommodation and location for a Dublin City centre hotel at the inexpensive price which we got our rooms.
Have stayed in lots of hotels in Dublin, at far more exorbitant prices, but no more after finding this lovely little decorative hotel - Had a lovely room with a balcony and adjoining living area space where we could look out over dublin
5 minute walk to both O'Connell Street and Parnell Street and close to all amenities. The staff were great, although there were lots checking out at the same time, the receptionists were so efficient and friendly.
Thumbs up for this one!
Thank you for a lovely stay

Checked-in August Bank Holiday Monday and stayed for 4 nights. Booked Online and added a B+B with 2 Evening Meals package. Positives: Hotel room very clean, huge comfortable bed, top floor room with floor-to-ceiling windows giving view of lovely church opposite. Large spacious bathroom and clean towels were left every day. Good breakfast selection of hot/cold food, evening meals 3 courses including coffee. Location is north of the Liffey so expect to walk around 7 minutes to Aircoach transport to/from Airport, 15/20 minutes (stroll) to Temple Bar. Negatives: Evening meal service slow - due to a large group in restaurant being served and only 2 waiting staff (very hard-working waiting staff who had to serve meals, attend to bar customers, greet guests and work reception!). Overall opinion Good Value hotel.

It was all planned out that me and my mum would head to Dublin for a girly few days, see the sights and enjoy a little of the Irish atmosphere but there were so many hotels it was hard to pick where exactly to stay. Immediately we could see from the website that the hotel was set in a perfect location; near to many food and shopping areas, including the very handy Tescos, and was close to a bus area as well so getting about was easy as pie.
When we first arrived at the hotel the welcome was immediate. As soon as we walked through the door, knackered after a long day of traveling, the women at the desk greeted us with genuine smiles and talked to us through the paying process and about the hotels features. The lobby area was decorated in a way that was elegant but not overpowering, making it feel very homey and the eating area was always bustling with happy conversation and comfort.
Although others staying at the hotel came in late and made noise outside our room, there were no other problems. We slept in a double room comfortably, with the nice desk area perfect for my online connection and a nice area to sit and watch television or have a phone call.
The room was beautifully but simply decorated and very comfortable and had everything we needed and when we ran out of milk for our tea and coffee addiction the lovely women that worked on our floor were happy to supply us with more with a smile which made me feel like I was no trouble at all.
The meals served in the hotel were gorgeous to boot; we had the breakfast both morningsand really enjoyed the large spread of everything from cereal to fruit and the evening meal offers were enjoyable and very like home with tasty pasta and really lovely cheesecake. The waiter who served us, like the others from the morning, was charming and consistant with his attention to us, even when there were others to serve. He was always there to make us feel comfortable and never made us feel like we were ignored or that our needs were behind anyone elses.
Overall, the stay was comfortable and affordable. The food was really delicious with a perfectly lovely price tag and the staff were helpful and hard working to ensure that we had the best stay possible. We both had a really lovely time and I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to see the sights, have a bit of night-life fun or to get away for a nice romantic break, I would definately come again!

The Maldron Parnell Square feels like a boutique hotel with its chic decor, but its rates are very reasonable (70-80 euro). Our room was spacious, had a nice flat screen tv, and the king bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was very large, modern, and with a huge tub. Although our room faced Dorset St. we didn't hear a thing from the street and slept very well. We had a B&B rate and the breakfast included was good, with a wide variety: breads, crepes, eggs (scrambled & hard boiled), beans, meats, potatoes, fruit, yogurt, cereals, etc. We would definitely stay here again, although there were a few negatives: the hotel is a good 15 min walk to the city center and although some of the hotel staff are extremely helpful (making dinner reservations, etc.) others do not know what they are talking about (e.g. whether or not there is a holiday the next day). In addition, the hotel manager told me that if we arrived by 4pm we would get a hotel parking space, which he simply should not have said. Both nights we were there the lot was full even though we arrived well before 4pm. There are other lots pretty close by although they are a few euro more expensive.

This hotel is located in the heart of dublin yet is still very quiet to get a great nights sleep. The decor is modern, clean and fresh. I always try to stay here when I am travelling to Dublin.

I stayed at the Maldron Parnell Square with my partner on a visit to the capital.
I can't praise this hotel enough, spotlessly clean room,great breakfast and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It is situated only 10 minutes walk from the city centre .
I look forward to returning to the Maldron on my next trip to Dublin.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

We stayed three nights. The members of staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful from beginning to end... on reception, in the restaurant and room service/cleaning. The room was clean and well-appointed. The restaurant provided excellent service and delicious food. The hotel is far enough from the city centre not to be too noisy, yet close enough to be within a convenient walking distance. A leisurely walk to the Temple Bar area took us about 15 minutes (but catch the bus if you need to... it stops near the hotel). I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
