9/10 Fantastic

Good Hotel

First time at this hotel, would not hesitate to return. Excellently placed just of O'Connell Street, taxi rank and bus to and from airport just outside the hotel, and hop on hop off buses just around the corner. Within a few minutes walk to O'Connell Street, and a short stroll over the bridge to the Temple Bar area. Rooms adequately sized, very clean, shower and bath options. We had a room on the first floor, not much of a view (we looked out onto a closed in area surrounded by other rooms, but we were not in the rooms that long and did not go for the view from the room. We had breakfast on one of our days, which was nice, the usual full English, with fruit, yoghurt, cheese, Ham, toast, coffees, juice etc. Hotel staff very helpful and pleasant. Free safe in room. Towels provided and usual dispenser soaps. You are told to leave your spare card key in the air con unit, which we did, on return we found the maid had taken it mistakenly, but I did ask for it back to which it was produced. Overall a nice hotel excellently placed, and would recommend, if we return to Dublin would definitely stay here again.

Good location....small room

Rooms very small and single bed very narrow. Bathroom was huge and bar food was lovely. Location was great. However, I have another stay booked here in a few wks and asked to make sure there were two beds in the room as a double room was only available at the time of booking. The receptionist could not change the booking as it was made through Alpharooms which I found ridiculous. The booking is still with their hotel.

Exactly what I was looking for

I was attending the All Ireland hurling replay and a friends 30th in temple bar, the location of this hotel was perfect, within walking distance of Croke Park and a short taxi journey to temple bar that night. The hotel irself was great fast check in and out. The staff were very plesant. Got a massage in the treatment room while there which was also great

The best thing about my stay was...

Convenient location, within walking distance of croke park and the city centre

Great Location And Keen Price

This was our 3rd stay at Academy Plaza Hotel. Wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Dublin as this hotel is situated just off OConnell Street and within walking distance to view places of interest and all the lovely shopping areas such as Henry Street a few minutes walk and Grafton Street, which is a 10 minute walk. Our bedroom, although quite small, was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was shining. The staff are helpful and friendly too, in fact we don't have anything negative to say about Academy Plaza as its very keenly priced as well. Will book it next time we're going to Dublin for sure.

The best thing about my stay was...

Relaxing atmosphere and lovely breakfast.

Fabulous Hotel - Definitely be back

6 of us stayed at the Best Western Academy Plaza from 17th-19th May for my 50th Birthday in 3 rooms, 4 over 40 ladies and 2 24 year olds. We were on 4th floor and the hotel was very busy with the Heineken Cup Rugby Final on, a lot of French fans also stayed at hotel. Rooms were small but spotless clean and fit for purpose, we took the breakfast deal of 2 for 15euros for first morning and paid the 10 euros each for 2nd morning as it was delicious, plenty choice, and you could have as much as you wanted juice, coffee, latte machine, fruit, cereal, fried breakfast. The hotel was central and easy to find from the airport, just got off at o'connell street and walked back a little, first road on the right. Staff were friendly and provided information on were to eat, we were recommended to try The Church, we ended up only having afternoon drinks in the beer garden, but it was lovely, will go back again to try the food, reasonably priced and looked amazing. The Living Room club next door always seemed busy but noise did not bother us as on 4th floor. We all really enjoyed our stay, and the hotel let us leave our bags in a locked room as we were not leaving till later on the Sunday. Recommend this hotel to anyone.

The best thing about my stay was...

Irish hospitality - top class.

Excellent - true to the Irish friendly welcome!

First of all the hotel is in a great central location with excellent transport links. All the tour buses leave on the hotels for step aswell as buses to and from the airport which are good value for money €10 euro return. We arrived 4hours early to check in, check in is at 2:30. The staff where's very warm and welcoming and said they had a room ready and we could have it early which we were over the moon about as we were very tired. The rooms are ideal size and comfortable with a warm decor and feel. Tea, coffee, hair dryer and iron facilities in the room made packing a lot easier. I lost my friend and had know phone to contact her on, the staff allowed me to use their phone free of charge a number of times until I found my friend. If there is anything the staff can do for you they will! When leaving they allowed us to leave out bags in the hotel until we were ready to leave for the airport. The hotel and staff are very accommodating. Thank you BEST WESTERN!
