“Great location, value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

Room was ok size but door to bathroom was absurd opening inwards in such a way we almost had to step into shower to be able to close it to get to toilet, it was however cheap and in a great location, beds and room was clean except for some clutter leftover by previous tenants on top shelf of cupboard, perhaps hire some taller cleaners! :)

Excellent location , right off O'Connell street. Staff couldn't have been nicer. The room was spotless and comfortable. I had breakfast and dinner in the hotel , both meals were excellent. I would definitely recommend the Academy Plaza hotel and will be making future bookings!

Stayed at this hotel for two nights over christmas and really enjoyed my stay. Lovely comfortable room and great breakfast. Hotel is only 5 minutes walk to O'Connell Street and close to restaurants, bars etc! Staff were very friendly and couldn't do any more for us with live music on both nights. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

Very centrally located; just off the main O'Connell Street (.although not the easiest hotel to find when driving; head for Clery's car park)
The rooms seem 'compact' but are actually fine, good air conditioning, bed really comfortable, good shower and all facilities needed. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
Good special offers; we had 2 for 1 on breakfast.(January 2014) (15 Euro) which was well worth it. Great coffee.
Would definitely stay here again.

We've just returned from another great stay at this hotel and were just as satisfied as the last four times we previously stayed there.
The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean, as are the rooms which have all the amenities you need. We upgraded to an executive room which is larger and has the robes/slippers etc.
We had breakfast the first morning which is buffet style and very nice. There is plenty to choose from including cereal, muesli, fruit, yoghurt, ham, cheese and cooked breakfast etc as well as various coissants and bread. Also there is now a coffee machine so you can get a latte or cappucino rather than just plain old coffee!
The hotel is conveniently located to everything and I recommend it to anyone travelling to Dublin.
We are returning at the end of January for our sixth stay!
See you soon

Great hotel. It's in an ideal location, less than a minute walk from O'Connell Street, a stone's throw away from the major shopping and theater district and all of the tourist attractions.The room was extremely clean and comfortable and staff were more than helpful and always very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast buffet was fantastic,with a wide variety on offer, the hotel's restaurant also had a lovely menu and was reasonably priced, and the bar had a great atmosphere with live music on a couple of the nights. I cannot recommend this hotel more, I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely return.

Anne, Kilkenny.
