Check-in was easy and we got an upgraded room free of charge. The room was very comfortable, nice big bathroom, flat screen tv, table and a lovely leather armchair. Tea and coffee in room and plenty of wardrobe space, loved it. The buffet breakfast's were very good, nice dining room. We did not use to bar but it looked comfy.

If location is the key then the Academy Plaza has a lot going for it. The No 747 Airport bus stops right outside the hotel and all the city tours and general bus stops are a few minutes walk away on O'Connell Street. It seems to be popular with both business travellers and tourists (including of stag and Hen parties)....

The hotel itself was nice, very well located and nicely decorated. Every receptionist we encountered was very helpful and polite. However for the amount of money you are paying you assume it would be sound proofed rooms, unfortunately this must not be the case. Every sneeze and step made by any room nearby you heard it all! The room itself...

Convenient location just off O'Connell Street, so easy walking to main city area. As we had a car it was very useful to be able to park in Q-Park opposite at a discounted rate. Good value buffet breakfast.

Stayed for four nights this week. The double room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, although a bit small. The restaurant is good, but there are no bar snacks. I asked to order off the menu - I wanted a club sandwich - but was told the restaurant menu was the only option. They could think about that.

We stayed for 3 nights with a group of friends which we organised Black Sabbath concert tickets. Location is great and we found a handy cafe over the road for breakfast cheaper than the hotel. Rooms were quite small but very clean and comfortable. Great for a base to explore Dublin, would definitely stay there again

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights earlier this month. It's about a 10-15 minutes walk to temple bar and is just off the main road from where everything is happening. It's way cheaper than staying directly in the heart of all the action and worth it for the sake of a short walk. There is a sports...

Have to agree with other reviews that the location is great, just off O'Connell Street and opposite the Dublin hop on/off 1st stop. Friendly reception/bar teams. Bar prices are typically high though cheaper than some places in the city. Room wasnt massive but to be fair it was only used as a place to sleep and wash as we were...

This hotel is the ideal base for a city break in the wonderful city of Dublin. My partner and I arrived at the hotel 3 hours before the official check in time of 2pm.
