I asked the night porter for pricing for laundry he informed me it would not cost anymore than ten Euros, he even weighed my laundry. I got a bill for twenty Euros. So beware of laundry advice and charges. Annoying to be told incorrect information when one could make an informed choice and walk five minutes and drop it off... More

We stayed here as it was the cheapest hotel I could find in Dublin, now I know why. It was clean and the location was great, Airlink bus stop right outside and the staff were friendly, for a two day trip it was ok. The rooms were very small (I cannot see how they call it a deluxe hotel), it... More

We have been at the Academy Plaza for a short trip of 4 days. Hotel is located at the centre with a bus stop straight ahead to the main entrance. Room and toilet were small, but clean. The breakfast was nothing special, but ok at all. For this reasonable price we would definitely come back again

The room was fine but lacked wash cloths, a second towel, and soap. I called to the front desk requesting these,in the afternoon, but they never appeared. A visit to the front... More

We began our 9 day Ireland trip with a 3 day 2 night stay at the Academy in Dublin. This is a perfect location just off of O'Connell street in the City. It is very close to numerous attractions and the tourist bus routes. It is only a 10 minute walk to Trinity College. The hotel is has been renovated... More

I've just stayed here for two nights in Dublin on business and I have to say that I'm glad it wasn't for longer. It's a reasonable three star hotel but it charges quite serious prices. The reception staff were okay but not friendly and said they could not print out some documents (even though the hotel information said this service... More

We stayed one night on a sightseeing trip. Great location and an amazing breakfast. Near everything and the Green Bus starts practically out side the hotel. There was nothing missing from breakfast. Lovely food and variety. Check in was long as they tried to charge us for the room we already paid for and then tried to sell us an... More
