We liked this hotel a lot. Room was spacious, breakfast was good (we ate in the restaurant one morning and got room service the next, which was very fun), bed was super comfy and location was excellent. Friendly front desk staff. We arrived at 1pm to see if we could just leave our luggage until the room was ready, and were given a room right away! Felt safe coming home late but still in a busy area with lots around. Only reason for 4/5 stars instead of 5 was that the cleaning staff could do a better job, there was a hair that didn’t belong to us in the bathroom wen we arrived. I left it alone and it did not go away over our 3-day stay. But that was really the only thing, the bed was clean and everything else was good.

Dear KL V,

Thank you for your review. Being located just off Upper O Connell Street, Dublin's main thoroughfare has many advantages by being so close to what Dublin has to offer. We are so pleased to see your lovely comments about our hotel restaurant and breakfast room. We frequently get many comments about our wonderful service staff and food and thank you for sharing it also.

I am very sorry to see our cleaning not meet your expectations. We do hope you would consider us again in the future where we can hopefully impress on you a better stay experience. Should you wish to continue this conversation please email us on wecare@academyplazahotel.ie. We look forward to hearing form you.

Kind Regards

We paid €245.00 for one night taking advantage of one of their "special" offers which included breakfast.

The room was depressing to say the least.

Far too small for the price.
Tea and coffee making facilities but no attempt to leave even a single biscuit net to the tea bags.

Absolutely horrible "view" out the window. As pic shows, all we could see was a load of air conditioning or extractor pipes directly outside our window.

Hardly any soundproofing between rooms so we could hear the people in the next room as if they were in our room.

Nasty bathroom. See pics. Looks like repairs had been carried out by a six year old with a silicone gun.

Peeling wallpaper next to bed.

The room just felt dirty.

€245.00 for this is absolutely ridiculous.

Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Academy Plaza is conveniently located in the O'Connell St. area, so you you are close to trains, busses, restaurants and shops. The airlink picks up just outside the front door. The rooms are incredibly small, as is the bathroom, but we were only there one night so we made the best of it. It was August and unseasonably warm, we greatly appreciated that this was the only place we stayed that had A/C. You can purchase breakfast for about 9Euro, it's okay. We had it because we had to catch a flight first thing- I would generally say skip it as there are other places nearby to grab food.

Dear LaryS6143,

Thank you for your review. Our well appointed hotel makes us an ideal choice for anyone looking to base themselves in the city centre and have Dublin on their doorstep. We are so close to what Dublin has to offer and made accessible to and from the airport serviced by the Airlink 747, Connolly Station nearby and even the Dublin City Tour starting outside our door. Breakfast can be added for guests who have not booked direct upon arrival at a discounted rate of €9.90 per person per morning, but when book on our site and get complimentary breakfast, with a vase amount to choose from you are guaranteed to be fed for the day ahead. Thanks again for your review and do hope you come visit again soon.

Kind Regards

Overall the stay at Academy Plaza is average. The rooms are simple, no frills. But the main attraction for me (1 night stay) was the drop off for the airport bus (747) is directly opposite the hotel and the Airport bus pick up is almost in front.

Additionally because I rented a car from Sixt (bad experience), the city pick up was in the carpark just round the corner.

All in all, it is a convenient location, with no high expectations of the rooms.
