A friendly welcome from staff, with easy check in and able to go to room mid morning. The room was clean and cosy, with good bathroom products and tea/coffee selection. There was a great selection of delicious dishes on the menu in the restaurant and breakfast could keep you fed all day with what was on offer! I have stayed...

We had a really lovely stay in Dublin. I booked the Wild Rover day tours so staying here was most ideal. The location is 2 mins walk from the meeting point. Also it's at the top of the high street and off the main road so it's super quiet. Super convenient location. The room was a good size, super clean...

I stayed from 14th to 16th March. Hotel is lovely, modern and spotlessly clean. Situated close to everything. Comfortable bed, lovely shower and good facilities. The food was very good and staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay again!

Let it not deter you, but Dublin is pricey. This just means, ensure you either know a couple of great ways to snaffle out a bargain, or save up a few extra pennies, for an extra cheeky cocktail. Academy Plaza is a great hotel, and located just off O'Connell street . Even on arriving early, it was no trouble to...

Situated near the top end of O'connell Street, this hotel is about 8 to 10 min walk to the Ha'penny Bridge and 5 mins to the main shopping area. Loads of nice pubs and eateries locally. The hotel was really nice,not the biggest of rooms, however, very nice and clean. Very pleasant and accomodating staff who went above and beyond....

Had a great stay at this centrally located hotel. Wonderful breakfast, clean rooms and lovely bar for night caps. Taxis literally outside the hotel, buses and hop on hop off buses, air buses and Lucas, either around the corner or short walk. Very friendly staff, we would definitely stay again.

The hotel was great, central, clean and staff helpful. Our only complaint was that our Anniversary was on Tuesday 7 March and as we had a menu for the restaurant in our room we had decided to go to the restaurant and had already decided what we were going to eat, only to be told when we had a table...

This was a great choice comfortable rooms and all you need, friendly receptions and helpful. Breakfast was great just a bit too expensive. Finally, the only issue which we had is that we requested and paid for a room to keep suitcases and freshen till 3. At 2:55 the chambermaids came 4 of them who where very very rude pushed...
