Daily City Excursion Perfect Central Location

Ideal for traveler determined to see Dublin by foot or readily accessible transportation modes-- bus/taxi/tram. Very supportive, accommodating staff vis a vis requests for extras (towels; adaptor), services (reservations; wake-up call; room maintenance; general info; early non-conforming check-in time; porter). Security is excellent. On-site amenities are convenient: restaurant was adequate; did not use salon or fitness room. Terrific nearby attractions-- museums (Writer's), art collections (Hugh Lane), shopping, casual and fine dining plus easy access to further away destinations. Room was small but efficiently storaged, well equipped with a large modern and stylishly finished bathroom. Minor design flaws included too narrow and too high (raised) tubs, otherwise very nice. Hair dryers a bit archaic, but better than none! In-room tea service/hot kettle awesome! Loud door slamming at any odd and very late hour was a bit off putting-- might doorstops solve this? Nice place-- might stay again and would recommend to friends.

Do not miss Hugh Lane collection. See Writer's museum if only for gorgeous interior architecture. Breathtaking : ).

Great Location

Just off the main drag (O'Connell Street) we were ideally suited for the hop-on hop-off bus and for walking around. Many restaurants and shops close by. Good value for what we paid. Also on the airport bus circuit. We paid for breakfast and had a good deal for our four night stay. Would recommend this place for this price.

Good Dublin location

The Academy Plaza is in a very good, reasonably quiet at night but easy walking distance to the heart of Dublin. The room was small with a good sized bathroom. The bed was comfortable.

Central, but a bit noisy

This would be a good deal if you didn't mind the street noise at night through closed windows or the morning noises from the hallway and adjoining rooms. It is on the bus line to the airport, however the bus would NOT stop to pick us up. Seems they get full on Mondays and are not obligated to stop.

Dublin city centre

Very busy hotel just off one of the main roads in Dublin. Good clean room, but very very small - could just about walk around the double bed. View looked out to a brick wall. Ok to stay at for one or two nights, but no more.

Nice location

The hotel was near the center of the city. You could easily walk around the heart of Dublin. We did request a non-smoking room and were not given one. Other than that, it was a decent place to stay.

great location

[...] re Best Western,Findlater Place, Dublin, We spent 4 nights at this hotel. When we went there, they did not have our booking. I had to retrieve it off the web for them.As a result, someone opend the door and was about to walk in while my wife and I were resting.[...] the breakfast was indentical every single day. While they had 4 meat dishes, every single one was pork or ham. Do they never get any Muslim or Jew guests.Otherwise, the staff were friendly and the location was excellentThank youSalim Rashid

Hotel Survey

The hotel is in a great location. The rooms were a bit small but very clean. The towels were a bit scratchy. There was no pool available and the fitness center was just cardio machines. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Abrakebabra is a decent place to grab some late night food. They're all around and not too expensive. I recommend the curry chips!
