I visited with my goddaughter. The food was great and plentiful, service very timely (even though it was our waitress' first night, she did a wonderful job) and the cost was great for the budget conscious.

The Cathedral Quarter has a bit of something for everyone, culture, eating places, shops, history and just a general buzz, especially in November/December when the Christmas market is on at City Hall.

This area is nice and a short walk from downtown. The cathedral is newer than most in europe but is really nice.

Stayed at the City Ibis and found it very central for shopping and sightseeing and the cultural quarter as we were attending a concert there. The City hall was ablaze with Christmas lights which were stunning and there was a general buzz although the weather was damp and miserable, though we are used to that in Swansea! were able to...

OK, Temple Bar in Dublin, even Soho in London, is more hectic and more compact with a real Hen & Stag party feel but the Cathedral Quarter in Belfast has a more hidden laid back feel. You have to explore it carefully to find the gems, including the ' real' bars and the nice eating places, but that lends itself... More

I took my children to Belfast in April and went on the tour bus (hop on hop off) which was great value for money.

Lovely part of belfast with excellent pubs. A bit like Merchant City in Glasgow, or Temple Bar in Dublin. Will definitely be back

Spent two nights here in hotel. Lovely area, quiet at night. A host of restaurants in St Anne's Square, offering various cuisines and varying price range. Near city centre......within easy walking distance. not too far to travel to Titanic exhibition. Peaceful relaxing area for that mini break with a bit of sightseeing & retail therapy!
