dublin

the hotel was very nice, very clean, good room, it was a bit noisy since we were there during the World Cup and there is a bar next door that was showing the games outside!! The hotel breakfast was good, tour bus picked up across the street, hotel is 500 feet from main street where there is plenty to do!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

pick up a dublin pass online- pick up at airport, saves you a lot of money at attraction sites, buy a hop on hop off bus tour- drives you to all the great location and picks you up at your leisure, they run all day. Buy a train pass to take side trips to other towns you may want to see!

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.

Great location!

Location just off O'Connell St. and a short walk from Airlink Bus to airport made this hotel a winner. Great staff, very helpful. Liked the free computer acccess. With the impending ash problems it was important to be able to check the airport status freqently. I found everything in the city center easy to reach by walking from this location. Hotel had a pub that served good food at a decent price so didn't have to go searching for food if too tired from a big day.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Be sure to go to the open air market off Henry St. on Saturday morning. Lots of flowers, fruits, and vegs. Then walk to the Temple Bar live food market in the afternoon and enjoy wonderful outdoor eating at food stands that include fresh cheeses, breads, and grilled meats. Yum!

Nothing to write home about

We only had a couple of days in Dublin because our flights were delayed by the volcanic eruption. The location was perfect, within walking distance of almost every major attraction in the down town area. The first lady who checked us in was highly rude, but the rest of the staff was great. The rooms were very tight, but with comfortable beds. The rooms were also very noisy. Overall it was a reasonable price for the room but it was nothing special to write home about.

Great Hotel and location

Great Location. A few minutes walk from the 747 bus (Dublin airport to city center). Across the street from the hop on-hop off buss. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very helpful. It is also located just off o'connell street which has good food and bars.

Review of Best Western Academy Plaza

The hotel had a great location, however, it was next to a pub that was extremely noisy every evening into the early morning. Breakfast was 7 to 14 euro per day and the breakfast was average at best.

Lovely Hotel and Great Location

What a great deal! The Best Western Academy had everything at a great price. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly! The room was eclectically decorated, quiet and clean. The handicapped accessible bathrooms have shower stalls with inadequate drainage, so make sure you have extra towels down to prevent falling.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Restaurants and pubs are within walking distance and it's worth checking out various cuisine. Be prepared that dining can be a bit self-service at times. A 5 percent tip is standard and is paid either directly to the server or at the register.
