Stopped here for two nights on 14th and 15th April, room only. As mentioned in a lot of reviews, the rooms are not the biggest, but the room was clean with a shower over the bath, coffee and tea making facilities and comfortable beds, we stayed in a twin room. There is an iron and ironing board in the room... More

Our room here was quite comfortable, and the location was very good--bus stops right around the corner and close enough to walk to a lot of shopping and restaurants. Breakfast was included in our rate, and it was quite good. The staff here were very friendly and accommodating.

Just one thing... you can probably save a lot of the cost for heated water in the showers by changing all the mouth- pieces of the showers from fixed to the wall. The time for using hot water will be shortened when having a shower.

It's in a very nice location if you want to the in the heart of the city. It's just a few steps and you're on O"Connell Street. O'Connell is one of the main streets in Dublin and provides plenty of shopping, pubs, and other eating spots just a few minutes away. The Hop On, Hop Off Bus has a nearby... More

We stayed two nights at the Best Western Academy Inn. The hotel is just off of O'Connell street so it is a fabulous location to restaurants and shopping. And there are multiple Starbucks within steps of the hotel. The location couldn't have been better. The rooms were very nice. We chose this hotel because we could get a room with... More

This hotel provided everything I always want in a hotel. Great everything - price, service, beds, and location. My daughters and I stayed comfortably in one room - that is a huge plus for three females and one bathroom, but plenty of outlets and mirrors. The hotel even came up with an adapter for us to use. The wifi worked... More

Really nice place - close to all the main Dublin sites and all within easy walking distance from hotel. The hotel is served by main bus stops and right next to the taxi rack. In addition those coming from the airport by AIRCOACH will find the drop off point and pickup point no more than 1 minute from the hotel... More

If you like me like nothing better than to freshen up with a hot face towel in the mornings, then you should stroke this hotel off your list. No Facecloth was present in the bathrooms. These days I always bring my Roku media player with me (especially to hotels in Dublin where I can tether the thing to my 4G... More

Visited Dublin for my 30th Birthday celebrations with my partner and we stayed at the Best Western Plus Academy Plaza Hotel last weekend. It's in a very good location - just off upper O'Connell Street. If you get the bus in from the airport, it literally stops across the road from the hotel. We didn't spot this so ended up... More

First, the good things: the location is great, lifts and wifi fast, staff friendly and the safe fits most laptops. Then the not so good news. The standard room is tiny!!! The reception pointed out to me that I am lucky to get a double bed…but the room was extremely small, just like a cabin on a ship. The table... More
