My husband and I stayed at the Maldron Cardiff Lane for one night as part of a coach tour throughout Ireland in September 2012. We found the hotel to be very modern, with well-appointed rooms and good amenities for the price. The lounge/common areas were very nice and had free wi-fi (lobby area only). I heard the gym was nice but we were unable to use it due to limited operating hours. In terms of location, it appeared to be in the financial district of Dublin, only a few blocks from the waterfront/Thomas Beckett Bridge and about a 15 minute walk to the Temple Bar and Trinity College areas. We found the breakfast buffet to be very good, and the staff/service were also very good...we had an issue with our TV and had a technician to the room within 10-15 minutes.
I saw some other reviews knocking the size of the rooms and the amenities...I would say that the Maldron Cardiff Lane is pretty standard, if not above average, in terms of room size and amenities. It's a European hotel, and you're staying in Dublin, not a country club resort. I would certainly recommend this hotel based on the value for the location and the customer service.
