There are a lot of positives here and just a few negatives. First the positives. The location is very good. Belfast is sprawling and Ten Square is situated within walking distance of some of the more picturesque and architecturally significant areas and buildings. It is not within walking distance, or at least my comfortable distance, to the Titanic Quarter which is a must-see, but all in all, a great location. The welcome is warm, sparkling you might say as they give you a complimentary glass of rose when you arrive. The bar is large, fun and loud with discreet media which is good for conversation but not so good if you are a World Cup fanatic. The food was very good, particularly the skinny fries! And breakfast was great - lots of choices including cold and hot offerings.
The rooms are quite large, very nicely appointed, and very comfortable with beautiful bathrooms. There will be chocolates waiting for you! The staff is very helpful and accommodating.. which leads me to the negative. Ten Square is not air conditioned. Many would not find that a drawback, but we were a bit warm on a few overly warm days which made sleeping a little difficult. Housekeeping was immediately responsive, however, with fans... lots of fans. They didn't blink an eye when I asked for multiples, and even offered a free standing floor AC unit if I was still hot. A strange contraption which my cousins opted for which sent a hose out the window.. odd, but it made their stay more comfortable.
All in all, I would stay here again for all the positives and just deal with the weather as it comes.
