We stayed in Dublin for 3 days and couldn't have chosen a better hotel! The staff and management couldn't do enough for us and were always ready and available. The location is brilliant and the comfort of the rooms outstanding! Highly recommend you stay here next time you visit Dublin!

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Academy Plaza during the first night of our Ireland vacation. The rooms were immaculate and very nicely decorated. The location was great and was within walking distance to anything you wanted to see. We especially liked the pubs next door and had a great time in the beer garden. Breakfast was delicious and...

We stayed at this hotel for our final night of a Trafalgar Tour. The hotel was not as conveniently located as some of our other hotels, but he service and accommodation were very good! We enjoyed our meals here, and found the bed very comfortable. It seems to be located in a Chinatown area, but we did not explore any... More

Me & my partner stayed here for a couple of nights in December 2013 for a break to see Dublin and its attractions at christmas time. The hotel was perfect! Clean, quiet & up to date. Its location is in the city centre with lots of bars, restaurants & shops nearby and also there is a tourist centre a couple... More

Hotel very clean and safely. Located 100 meters from O'Connell Street and 10 minutes walk to Trinity College, Temple Bar, Grafton Street, etc. Near a big Tesco and several small Spar plus various fast food where you spend much less than in pubs and restaurants. Spacious room with double bed and a sofa bed for our daughter. The double bed... More

Great location and close to the sites. The double bed was made up of two single ones that kept separating during the night leaving me with a big gap in the bed. On the first floor and it was noisy at night. There was also a constant buzzing from something outside the window. Bareable with the window shut but way... More

Rooms are small, but cozy and clean. The bathroom floor was really cold. Staff could be more polite and friendly. A good choice for a weekend break. Probably one of the cheapest hotels in this location.

Based on the reviews I booked 4 nights in this hotel last week. Worst hotel experience in years (out of a few hundred). The noise was beyond anything I ever experienced, jaw-dropping. Not just the loud music and shouting from the bar next door, way past midnight. But mostly other guest in this cardboard hotel and the rollercoaster of noise... More

Stayed in July 2013. There is a great bus that takes you from the airport directly to a bus stop outside this hotel for only €6 each! Room was a good size and very clean. Great location near all the main transport links and really good location for sightseeing.
