This hotel was fantastic. We stayed here for 5 nights in march 2015 and did not encounter anything negative at all. Everything that you would expect from a city hotel is provided with a typical irish touch. the staff we are excellent and the rooms were perfectly suited to our needs . The bathroom , bed and noise level were... More

The Best Western hotel is in a great location, it's right off O'Connell street at the heart of everything. We did have a slight hiccup when we got there, we had booked through booking.com and were quoted in £'s and €'s but when we got there it was about 40€ more than expected and when we presented the booking to...

Stayed here for a short 2 night break with my fiance. Firstly the value for money is ridiculously good. The hotel is currently undergoing rennovation which is obvious from the outside but inside you wouldnt know! No noise or internal building work evident however this may have reduced the price at this time. Location is also good as it is... More

Room ready at 10.00am. Upgraded to include full Irish breakfast ( 10 Euros ) a bargain and fantastic , the room was fine about... More

I got cheap rooms from a website so wasn't expecting 5-star luxury but I was quite disappointed as I have had previously had good experiences at Best Western hotels. The hotel's location is it's main selling point as it is just off O'Connell Street the main city centre road. It is however next door to major construction works that will... More

We recently purchased a voucher trip off 'wowcher' for a weekend trip to Dublin, and this was the hotel. I immediately thought it would be a cheap hotel, lacking in location, quality and service, purely down to the fact that it was part of a great deal that seemed too good to be true. Upon arrival, we were greeted by... More

Perfect location for city . A good clean hotel,comfortable and very helpful friendly staff. Checked in early as our room was ready before 10.30am. Ideally situated near to bus stops for sightseeing. We did the hop on hop off red bus tour. Our driver (Matt with two t's) was a gem! Entertaining his passengers with an immense knowledge of the... More

I required a conveniently located hotel for public transport and the Academy Plaza was ideal. I will be travelling back to Dublin shortly and will stay at the Plaza again. Overall my stay was very good and the facilities suited my needs.
