8/10 Very good

Great location, remarkably quiet, comfortable, clean, helpful staff. But only one pair of electric sockets in the room . And why does a double room have 1 chair?

10/10 Exceptional

From the get go check-in in was very quick and I was greeted by a well mannered gentleman at the desk. They even had rooms available and I heard they endeavour to check guests in as quick as they can, even if it is well before the time stipulated on the booking which meant I could freshen up straight away after landing which is already a huge bonus! The rooms were very clean, modern, and most importantly the beds and chairs were very comfortable. The bathrooms were again very modern and to a high spec, and very clean. The air conditioning worked very well which was perfect for the very warm weekend I spent in the city. The staff were professional and welcoming, going above and beyond to make my stay as pleasant as possible, even after I had checked out, which was a lovely touch. I didn't eat breakfast but from what I could see as I walked past it looked good. The coffee shop was a nice addition for someone on the go and the staff there were also kind. 10/10 - would definitely stay again and I intend to on my next trip. My party had a terrible time at another hotel in the city so I was glad to have a positive experience.

Great place.
I am more than pleased with the Academy Hotel. The staff let me check in early and answered all my questions. My Iphone would not work so they helped me with directions and questions. The hotel is in a perfect spot especially for walkers. All kinds of restaurants, tours and stores in the neighborhood. And close to Trinity. The manager even came up to my room to turn the heat up. The only minor "complaint" I have is that breakfast was a zoo. There were lots of choices but lots of people too. Much too crowded. I would absolutely stay there again.

Would use again
had a twin room with single beds - comfortable, clean and even though the room was little small, it didn't cause any issues. breakfast was really good (buffet - hot/continental/fruit/cereal etc). and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is really central so there can be a bit of external noise, especially when pubs etc come out - but the convenience of access to transport links more than makes up for that.

2/10 Poor

Do not stay on 1st floor.
Hotel looks nice upon entry. Room was small but comfortable and clean. Absolutely AWFUL nights sleep though, mainly because of the proximity of the room I was in to a nightclub or something. 3am the music stopped. Could not sleep at all. Terrible experience.
