The location is the best!! We were 10 minutes walking from Trinity College and Temple Bar. Also the bus stop to to to the airport is almost in front of the hotel and other bus lines too. We loved the location! We didn't take the breakfast because for us was expensive, you can find something cheaper close to the hotel.... More

I was most impressed with the staff at the front desk. Always helpful and professional. The hotel was clean. The rooms were modern and kept clean. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The location is central to Dublin City Center. It was my first time in Dublin and I found the hotel convenient to all. The breakfast was... More

I really don't have anything negative to say about this hotel! The price was great - under $100/night...The location was even better - most major buses stopped within a block of the hotel and the Hop On, Hop Off Bus stop was directly across from the hotel... The hotel was located just off of O'Connell Street and was within walking... More

Outstanding service. Everything was delivered with a friendly smile. Dublin is famous for its hospitality but there's a sincerity about the staff here; reception staff, restaurant staff, bar staff all really want to be helpful and come across as informal but professional - and without the stuffiness often associated with hotels in this bracket elswhere. They seem to WANT to... More

Make sure you get the Irish breakfast, its great. The food in the pub is also good for a fair price. Location is right in the city with bus trans at the front door and the DART 2 blocks away. Also hop on hop bus is at the front door. We found the staff very plesent and helpful. Spent a... More

After booking this hotel largely based on the good reviews it gained on Trip Advisor it turned out to be a great spot (as described!). We checked into the hotel at around 10.00am in the morning after flying very early; the polite lady at reception told us that our room was not yet ready . . . However rather than... More

I have now stayed four or five times at the Academy Plaza hotel in Dublin and as with previous visits have not been disappointed. I travel from North Carolina usually twice a year and now staying at the Academy and shopping in Dubin has become the highlight of my trip. A long day's shopping was sustained by the huge Irish...

We stayed at this hotel after reading the reviews. We weren't disappointed. We were staying overnight for a concert at the O2. The hotel is well placed for a visit to Dublin - just off the main street but close enough for everything to be walkable. The bus from the airport drops you off just round the corner from the...
