Unbeatable location for the price

The hotel staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful. They answered all of our questions with ease and knowledge. Just an example of how wonderful they were...it was raining quite hard as we were leaving for home. My niece could not find her umbrella and one of the staff members at the front desk tracked down an umbrella for her knowing she wouldn't be able to return it. Talk about service!!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Check out the Arlington Hotel Bar...outstanding atmosphere! Live Irish music and dancing nightly and reported to be one of the largest bars in Ireland.

Must upgrade at Best Western Acadamy Pla

This hotel has an excrllrny location, perhpas the best in the city. You cannot take the stnadrd room unless you are staying for one or two days. Thsoe rooms are very small. You must update to a larger room which costs 30 euros over the tour rate. You can have breakfast added in for 10 euros a persoon when you sign in and should do so. It is a good price as a simple breakfast on the street costs about 7.5 euros. The hotel has free internet service which isa real plus and the staff is very helpful. Tehre is a night club right next store which does get loud on weekend evenings but is is not a real problem. Overall I would recommend the hotel especially for the location and fairly reasonable cost.

great hotel in a convenient location

The Academy Plaza hotel was excellent for our 5 day stay in Dublin. The front desk staff was extremly friendly and accomodating. The superior room had extra space, was very clean and had nice extras, such as bathrobes and slippers. The location off O'Connell street was perfect for us, as it was walking distance to all major sites including Temple Bar, yet was a quiet location. Would definately come back or recommend to friends!

April stay at the Academy

For us, with one day and two nights to explore Dublin, it worked perfectly. We're always happy to stroll around cities, and the location just off O' Connell was great - shops, food options and great pubs all within a 15 minute radius, and lots of sights just beyond. Easy to get to Temple Bar, Trinity College, museums, churches - we even walked to the Guiness Brewery. Granted, we had great weather, and again, we like walking. It was nice to come back in the evening along well-traveled streets, to a quiet, clean, comfortable room.

Excellent services for yor money

The location is great for all the shopping and only blocks away from the main historic places. The personnel is very helpful and nice and they definitely make you feel like you are at home. The only thing I can say it wasn't that good was the food in the Asian restaurant. They don't take care of the buffet bar too much. The other restaurant is excellent. Clean and comfortable beds in a very good location for your touristic interests.

Good choice for budget travelers

Staff very friendly and helpful. Room reasonably spacious and very clean. Location somewhat unattractive yet quite convenient, close to center of town and on many bus lines. A friend in another room never did get phone service in his room, and noise from nearby bar was a problem. Otherwise--very pleasant tourist hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cornucopia Restaurant near Trinity College was terrific: reasonably priced, with great meals. Gets very busy at peak times. Also try Govinda vegetarian restaurant, on the same street as LUAS tram line.
