Maldron Hotel Sandy Road Galway, Galway, Ireland
Very Good8.0
The public areas of the hotel was excellent. The rooms should have more roof lighting as the only source of light in the rooms are a floor lamp, a desk lamp and two reading lamps by the bed. The doors to the rooms are quite poor with very little noise cancelling so if there's anything going on in the hallway you will hear it. The trained staff are fantastic, while the more inexperienced ones are learning on the job, they're all very friendly and helpful. The WiFi was not that good. It was quite slow and it also had issues connecting to some web pages. With VPN the network worked fine, but for those who doesn't have access to a VPN service beware that you might not be able to get access to all services.
