Reviewed November 7, 2012

loved this hotel, was in Dublin on business and wasnt expecting such a lovely hotel. Room was upgraded so I was very impressed and even breakfast was lovely - plenty of choice. Would recommend it for business and pleasure. Not too far from OConnel St and luas line, and close to the Liffey.

Room Tip: Room on the 6th floor impressive with great views and lovely outside seating area. Not the best of...

We stayed a weekend here with my husband, myself, and our 7 month old daughter and it was great. The rooms were a good size, the location was great! Not directly in the middle of everything but literally within walking distance of just about everything we wanted to see! The front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant and the LUAS was a stones throw from the front door. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: We chose the side that overlooks the Smithfield Square and it was perfect with a great view!

Dear Ezmak22,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a positive review on tripadvisor, and we thank you for your continued custom.

I am delighted you find the staff to be so friendly and helpful. Customer service is something we strive to excel at here at the Maldron Hotel Smithfield and I am delighted that your experiences have been such pleasurable ones.

Our location is a great advantage to us. We are lucky to be a city centre property which is conveniently located for local attractions, shopping areas, Court Services, O2 and temple bar. As well as having the Luas and a number of attractions and bars on our doorstop.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future and thank you once again for taking the time to post your wonderful review on our hotel.

Regards

This is a nice hotel, nothing fancy. Nicely located within walking distance to everything. The room was large and clean. The beds were a little hard. The staff was friendly and helpful. I liked having a small grocery store right next door to the hotel.
My only complaint was smokers stood right outside the entrance of the hotel and you had to walk through smoke to get in. Also, there isn't free parking. There is a parking garage behind the hotel but it is 15.00 euros a day. We were suppose to get a discount with our hotel but we misunderstood that you would have to pay the attendant before 7pm.

We stayed a week at this hotel and was very pleased with the room (which was large) and the service. Had a computer problem and the manager came right up to fix. The neighborhood was fine and very close to luas. The walk to O'Connell street was about 20 min and was happy to have the small food store next door. Not many places for late dinner in area but did enjoy an Italian resturant just around the corner.

Dear Rory,

Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a wonderful and positive review on tripadvisor, and we thank you for your continued custom.

The team and I were delighted that you enjoy your stays so much and appreciate the efforts made by the team to go the extra mile to make your stays a little easier and a little bit more pleasurable . Excellent Customer and personal service is one element that we prioritise here in the Maldron Smithfield and we feel makes us different from other hotels and I am delighted that you have found this to be the case.

We appreciate the feedback with regards to the lack of WIFI in the bedrooms. This is something we are currently investigating and we do hope to offer WIFI in the bedrooms in the near future.

The entire team look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future and we thank you once again for taking the time to write such positive feedback on your stay.

Kind Regards

Ann Marie Traynor

Good location just off the track but easy walk to centre and Temple Bar, also just down from a Luas stop. Got a very early (3 months prior) deal on booking.com that made it exceptional value. Breakfast is ok and can be booked when you arrive on a special day before deal of €8. Warned by taxi drivers and staff not to venture north of the hotel in the evening, pubs and nightlife that way not as pleasant evidently, plenty of other places to go, so no issue there.

It is always nice to stay at the Maldron Hotel in Smithfield.

The room is always very clean and comfortable but what makes this hotel special is the friendliness and flexibility of the staff. The fact that they have kept the same front of house staff for the last number of years is a good sign - i always find them brilliant ...

the one drawback is that in the bedrooms whilst there is complimentary broadband there is not any wifi which can be challenging if there is more than one laptop user in your group or people with smartphones ... investing in wifi and offering it free would be a great improvement. This is the only reason why I didn't give the room quality a '6' .... i know it can be expensive to offer free wifi throughout the hotel rather than just in the lobby which is the current position but in these days it is really necessary ...

that being said i will be back to the Maldron in Smithfield again soon!
