It's in a great location just off O'Connell street. The food is good and there's a busy sports bar beside it. The room was not amazing but it was fine for a business trip. Staff are nice and friendly. It's a great business hotel. Wifi is good.

The location of this hotel is very good, close to nightlife, restaurants, bus stops. Especially convenient to airport busses, which was a plus for us. The hotel was a bit noisy at night and in the mornings, and we could hear our neighbors/people in the hallways. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet is ok but not a great... More

This hotel was great. The location was perfect, it has the most comfortable beds with fluffy duvets. If I ever return to Dublin, this is where I will stay. Friendly staff, and relaxing and accommodating atmosphere. Thanks!

Great hotel, ideal location, helpful and friendly staff always a bonus. Hearty breakfast. Good room facilities and despite the location, no street noise. Walking distance from Luas and Bus, Great for the shopper who has to offload the purchases before continuing looking for more.

This is a great place to stay for downtown Dublin. It's extremely convenient for the city center. Great beds, clean, nice staff. There is a bar next to the place that can be loud at times. To avoid this ask for a room on the upper floors and overlooking the church. The only downside is the TV is mounted 6... More

We stayed here one night before a flight back to the USA the next day. First of all, there's no on-site parking. You have to walk a block to a parking garage and IT'S NOT FREE. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Since we had to leave before breakfast was served they set up the cold breakfast items on... More

This hotel has a good location and close to restaurants, bars, shops etc.. The room was very clean and comfortable! It was such a relaxing experience. Breakfast buffet was very tasty, yet it needs more variety. I would recommend this place!

Before I start my review I have to say that before I decided to book this hotel I had sent the hotel a couple emails with questions I had and the employee was fast at getting back to me and she was full of useful information. This is part of the reason why I decided to book here. My friend... More

Returned for another visit with a coach holiday company and had 2 nights stay at this hotel. Lovely and clean reception area...super fast check in as your room numbers and cards are on the desk waiting for you. The rooms are small but compact and have everything you need including very comfortable beds, pillows, hair dryer and the spotless bathroom... More

My wife and I and some family members stayed in the Academy Plaza Hotel last month and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A real family welcome and atmosphere was created by the owners, Joe, Julie, Jane and Jimmy. Home from home! Location great, rooms clean and warm, food exceptional and staff soooo friendly. Well worth a stay.
