“Good location, value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I've stayed here several times and its within a 8min walk of the city centre and only 3-4 minutes walk from some good pubs and restaurants on university road. Try the elms pub for some good beers and a good pint of guiness and the Bourben restaurant opposite for a nice meal, both on university road.

It has free wifi and secure parking and the breakfast is standard HI express. Good freindly service.

Rooms are spacious and comfotable with plenty of towels, a hair dryer for the girls and tea and coffee making kit.

The rooms and service are ok. It's on a loud street though so would suggest you ask for a room in the back of hotel. The beds have extremely heavy blankets on them too.Food was just alright .overall experience was average nothing special at all.

I used this for an overnight stay for three. We checked in, quick and friendly and dropped our bags. On arriving back, (secure caar park is useful) we found the third bed had not been made, nor linen or towels left. The receptionist arrived very quickly and made up the third bed and left towels. Very apologetic. Comfortable bed, great shower but no storage for any clothes, fine for one night, not great if staying longer. Breakfast was good, not as varied as some but plenty of it. 15 minute walk to city hall. For the pricegreat valu and comfortable

If you are there for business, its a good place to stay, however, for holidays, try to get a local b&b instead of a chain hotel like this one. the experience is average, nothing outstanding.
The hotel is ok, rooms clean and spacious, yet mattress far too soft. breakfast is good, average stuff. if you come from continental Europe they don't provide adapters, make sure to take your own.
Rooms are soundproofed, we had the room in front of the elevator, thought in beginning that it will be a disaster, but in the end it wasn't. location is good, not very central, but Belfast is kind of small, many things within walking distance.
All in all, good value for money, we paid 70 €/room/night, breakfast included, which we found to be a good price for the area.

stayed here for a one nite stop after flying in to dublin and driving up just to go to the titanic exhibit . very clean and parking round back which is handy, price is very good considering you get a full breakfast aswell. rooms are clean and well looked after . had slight issue but didnt cause any problems and reception immediatly offered to change room which wasnt really needed so declined. as we had arrived late decided to stay in bar area and have t, was busy due to a henn party . not much noise apart from when hen party came inn from night on tiles but as we was slap bang opposite lift kinda expected that so be aware of that. be carefull in car park as its split in between three levels we went into lower level and it is tight to get up and down ramp . apart from that highly recommend staying here for ease and conveniance

My two daughters & my self stayed here last night, as they were going to see 1Direction. It was excellent value for the money. I would stay in it again & have already told friends about how good it is. We got breakfast in on the price & it was as good a breakfast i have got in any hotel. It is self service & u could have as much as you like. It said when i booked continental breakfast but when we went down there was hot food too. A great variety for every one & most of all the food was hot. The hotel was clean & staff very helpful. We had a room with 1 double & 1 sofa bed. They had the sofa bed all set up when we arrived & both my daughters slept in it & they had loads of room. The only thing i would say i found the bed i was in, too soft. Car park at rear of hotel & safe.
