Perfect location for a Dublin visit

All of the hotels services worked as advertised. The only drawback was a little crampy room - it felt like a hotel in Tokyo. Place was clean and the staff friendly - even in Christmas time. Outside the hotel is the stops for airport bus and the hop on hop off tour bus.

Kimchi and Parnell's are located near the hotel. Both are worth the visit

Fantastic Location

The hotel was fantastic very friendly with Irish humour as a bonus and extremely helpful. The hotel was in a fantastic location for airport buses tour buses shopping eating and local entertainment. My only downfall was the mattresses on the beds. After just one night I was in agony. The staff did their best to help by offering extra bed mattresses. This was a little better but was still suffering. My friend managed the 2 nights but couldn't have gone any longer. It was such a shame as everything else was perfect and I would love to go again but only if better mattresses could be provided.

Great location in Dublin

This was a great location in Dublin. Right on the bus line for getting to and from the airport and for the Hop on Hop off bus experience for seeing the popular spots in the city. Just a half a block from the main street in Dublin. Staff was very helpful. Room was clean and a very good deal on breakfast each morning. The only drawback was the room was very small and compact. But sufficient for what we needed since we were out exploring the city most the time.

Nice and Frendly

even though I spent most my time walking around Dublin the hotel was a joy to return too after a long walk. there is plenty of available seats to crash out in and comfortable. All staff that I met where friendly and helpful. I would use this hotel again in a shot.

Great location for touring

Great location with easy access to and from the airport and for touring. You can catch the hop-on hop-off bus right across from the hotel. It was an easy walk to most major sites and there were some great restaurants near the hotel.

The 101 Talbot is one of the top rated restaurants in Dublin and it is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

clean and comfortable

The academy plaza is very central. Standard rooms are small but very clean. Beds very comfortable. Didnt eat there but did buy a very pricey round of drinks in the bar (probably the same price as any hotel in Dublin).Lively bar next door but this did not disturb us at all. Would stay there again.
