Hello, It's a good hotel, very well located, good and friendly contact. Room was good and well sized, but dark (in front and very closed of another building). Breakfast was complete, for french as I'm, but definitly for others.

Fantastic location in Dublin near city centre, just steps from O'Connell Street. Arrived a bit early prior to 2:30 pm check in, no big deal, popped into the on site bar/restaurant for a drink before venturing out. No need to take local transport as you can walk to Trinity College, Temple Bar, etc. Rooms and bathroom are quite small. Beds... More

both rooms were clean and had decent showers. The first was a very small room, but the second was smaller yet. Showers, though providing an adequate experience were very small. My second room was very inconvenient because you had to walk across the bed to do anything because the room was so small. Both rooms, second and sixth floors overlooked... More

We arrived at The Hotel via the very efficient Airport Bus, I had e-mailed the hotel prior to arrival asking that if there was a room available early as we'd had a very early morning flight. I understood that this was only a request and the room may not be ready until the actual check in time. I asked if... More

This hotel is a Best Western Plus. We found the room to be small and very average - more like your Ibis basic. Bed and pillows comfortable to their credit - but fixtures and fittings flimsy and not great quality. ( wardrobe rail collapsed disgorging all the coathangers across the room) Staff are very helpful. Late check out until 1... More

Academy Plaza Best Western has nothing extra ordinary about it, it is just a very pleasant, clean and comfortable hotel in an excellent location. We were able to walk to all the tourist attractions of Dublin that we wanted to visit or we could have got one of the many buses and trams available. We did not breakfast in the... More

Booked 3 triple rooms. They were spacious with 2 single and 1 double bed. Rooms were very clean and were serviced every day. Central location. Great pub next door which was open very late but you could not hear from hotel rooms even with windows open. Would definitely stay here again and so would all my friends.

Perfect location for your Dublin trip, it's a short to medium walk to most attractions. The airport bus drops off less than five minutes walk and picks up directly in front of the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful with any and all questions. The room was standard, I was happy that we got a double bed and not... More

This was the worst hotel of our trip. I had heard from a friend that the Best Westerns were nicer abroad than in the U.S. but that was not our experience. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, so much that my husband and I could not sleep. Also, outside our window was a very run-down neighborhood where we could... More
