Excellent staff and location. The size of the room was disgraceful. My wife and I had to take turns in standing up from the bed to get dressed. The bathroom area was no better.

Lovely visit. Reception was helpful. Central location which made it easy to catch cheap transit from the airport and also not far when catching a taxi. Would stay again.

Room 408 is *tiny*. About 7.5 foot by 10 foot. The elevator felt bigger. At first I thought they put our room number on the broom closet. It was not possible to walk normally around the double bed. The window was also tiny, probably 4 foot tall by 1 foot wide, adding to the feeling of claustrophobia. Other rooms may be bigger, but there should be a minimum standard, and it should be better than room 408.

The hotel and staff were excellent.

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing. We could not fault our stay. It was everything we expected, even better.
Location: Everything is at the doorstep. You really don't need to hire a car to see the sights of Dublin. The staff are most helpful and very friendly.
We would most definitely recommend this hotel and we will spread the word. The staff were very experienced and the food in the hotel was absolutely beautiful, the service, presentation. everything. We would have loved another week there. Will definitely keep the Academy Plaza in mind, a beautiful place. The rooms were spacious and very clean. No problems at all.
