Well Positioned 4 Star Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 10, 2009

Arriving from Australia after travelling for 27 hours we were looking for a comfortable hotel. We had booked direct with the hotel via the internet and were very pleased with the hotel and particularly our room.

The hotel has been completely refurbished from reception , public areas and guest rooms. The carpets and furnishings were first class, the bathroom very modern and clean. The flat screen TV was a bonus and a full buffet breakfast was included in the tariff.

In the foyer were two computers with free internet use for guests.

The hotel is located on a side street approximately 150 metres from Upper O'Connel Street, the Airport Bus stops 50 metres from the corner and the Hop On Hop Off Tourist Bus has stop #1 next to the Airport Bus stop.

Directions: Off Upper O'Connell Street, Dublin.

Ideal location with a superb adjoining restaurant

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 30, 2007

Well situated just off O'Connell Street, this hotel is perfect for a short break. Staff are professional and friendly and the hotel offers bars, restaurants and a great buffet breakfast. On the negative side, single rooms are a bit on the small side and although each has a LCD television, it's rather bizarrely mounted sideways on the wall making it impossible to watch television from the bed! When asked why this was done, I was informed that due to Health And Safety it wasn't possible to pivot the TV outwards. All in all though a comfortable hotel at an affordable price. Be sure to eat in the newly opened Abacus Restaurant, quite amazing food and the service....

Unique Quality: Abacus Restaurant, marvellous Asian food of all descriptions and for every taste.

Our accomodation for the 2 days in Dublin was the 'Academy Hotel'. Nice location just off O'Connell Street, Dublin's centre.
