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

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, the staff very friendly and very helpfull. The hotel is a great starting point for exploring Dublin. You can walk around to all of the sights and museums from the hotell. Lots of great bars and pubs nearby. The hotel pub was also a hang out place for locals

My husband and I booked for a midweek break and we were recommended this hotel by a friend. We arrived in Dublin at 9.30 am and couldn't book in to the hotel until late afternoon. The reception staff were amazing when we asked if we could store our bags and were happy to help us, and put our luggage in... More

Perfect location for a weekend break in the heart of the city. The Reception staff on arrival could not have been more helpful. We were late arriving and opted for a drink in the bar. The bar staff went out of their way to serve us. We added breakfast to our room only rate and this was beyond our expectations.... More

We arrived here for a weekend away for a birthday and were looking forward to exploring the area, so were pleased to see the hotel is located so close to the main areas of the city. The rooms are very small and clean, but we didn't mind as we didn't intend to spend much time in the room anyway. When... More

Well located just off upper O'Connell street around the corner from The Gresham Hotel. It's abt 400 yds from bus stops on O'connell street for coaches to/from Airport. Modern build hotel surrounded by commercial premises so no room with a view. Room small with relatively large amount of space wasted by passage from door past bathroom to area with bed,... More

Dear Colin B Thank you for sharing your review about your stay with us. We as a modern city centre hotel know how lucky we are to have that advantage of being so central. We are, as you say serviced by the Airlink 747 bus outside our door along with the Air-coach just on O' Connell street. I regret to... More
