A really enjoyable experience for a short family break. Excellent facilities, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, modern rooms. The hotel staff were very professional and extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel is really close to the centre of Belfast, within easy walking distance of main shopping districts and Belfast City Hall. Only a short taxi ride (very reasonbly priced) to the Titanic Quarter. We will definitely be back.

I stayed here over a weekend in May and can only tell good things about it.
Very friendly lady at the reception desk and we had a huge double room with an extra sofa.
Quiet still central location, the city hall is only 10 minutes walk via the shopping district

Arrived with my daughter to attend a concert. Hotel foyer had lovely decor and was clean and tidy

When we checked in the lady on the desk noticed that we had a double room booked and immediately offered to move us to a family room, so that we could benefit from seperate beds.

Our room was on the first floor. IT WAS HUGE! Massive super king bed plus another. All the usual stuff associated with a good quality hotel even though this was of the budget variety. Bedroom and bathroom were spotless. Could not fault anything.

The bar downstairs had a lovely atmosphere and was decorated with polished wood and big sofas. Prices were fair too.

I would have no hesitation in recommending to any one and plan to return there soon. The hotel and staff are a credit to the Premier Inn chain.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the street and was very bright and sunny. No noise either.

My wife and I stayed here from Sunday 5th to Friday 10th August. We got a really good advance rate and paid £154 for the 5 nights.
We'd visited Belfast on two previous occasions, although the area where the hotel is was "new" to us having previously stayed at Benedicts and the Premier Inn in Alfred Street.
Having arrived on an early morning flight and taken the Express bus from Belfast International we arrived at the hotel just before 10.00 A.M.,we decided to walk through from the Europa buscentre and this took about 10 minutes. The area around the hotel did not look at its best on a damp and very grey early sunday morning it has to be said. Despite being so early, we were able to "check-in" and were allocated room 522. This turned out to be a "disabled" room, but this didn't cause us any real problem, and indeed the extra floorspace was welcome as we were staying for a longer time. The room was only a very short walk from the lift.
As with all the Premier Inns we have stayed in previously, the room followed a "tried and tested" layout and was clean and tidy and had everything that you would expect.
Later on that evening (Sunday), having failed to find anywhere in the immediate locality to eat, we finally decided to dine at the hotel. We approached the dining area at 9.20 to be told that the restaurant was very busy,but if we took a seat in the bar for about 20 minutes we'd be able to eat there. We stayed in seats at the bar so as to be in view to restaurant staff when a table became available.
We settled down with reasonably priced drinks and watched some of the Olympic coverage being shown on a large flat-screen behind the bar. (no sound, but no problem). it was only when we ordered a second drink that we realised that we had been waiting just short of an hour. I approached the restaurant area and found the member of staff who was supposed to be getting us a table. She was not very apologetic at all and calmly told us that we would not be able to eat in the restaurant!! So there we were at 10.20 on a Sunday night having to leave the hotel to find somewhere to eat!!
We managed to find a take-away just over the road from the hotel where to be honest the service and standard of food was excellent!!
The following day we asked for some more towels as we had only been left 1 set and despite being promised they would be sent up, they didn't arrive. The only other point to grumble over would be that the room service knocked every morning quite early, although once it was explained that apart from fresh towels the room did not require servicing most days, the staff were very pleasant.
Overall despite the restaurant fiasco, we found this hotel to be excellent value for money, ideally situated (its amazing how much better the neighbourhood looks Monday to Friday in decentish weather!!) and the reception staff particularly pleasant and helpful.

Well positioned comfortable hotel in Belfast's vibrant Cathedral Quarter. Staff are excellent and ready to help in any way. The food is good and reasonably priced when compared with nearby eateries. Rooms excellent - one drawback is that the light over the sink (in bedroom) is linked to the lavatory - disturbs your partner if you visit the lavatory during the night! However the room has tea making facilities, flat-screen TV, 30mins free WiFi, and AirCon! There s good level of sound proofing - excellent as it is in the busy (at night) Cathedral Quarter. Security s good and the bar welcoming, friendly and reasonably priced. Even AA beer - Erdinger alcohol free would taste better. For a typical Irish Pub, you are 50 yards from the John Hewitt, run by a local charity! Overall hard to beat for 1/2 night stays in Belfast!

Room Tip: Sometimes do rooms for £29 per night - unbeatable. Try and get higher floors for less noise from lat...

This was my 59th hotel stay during an extended around-the-world trip. I stayed twice as a tourist for six nights in total, for an average of GBP78/night (approx. USD/AUD $118), including tax. I stayed in two different rooms - #512 (close to elevators and with a sloping roof near one side of the bed); and #337 (approx. 100m walk through a rabbit-warren of twisting corridors and across closed-in walkways to a separate building).

What’s good: It’s in a great location in the ‘Cathedral Quarter’ in Belfast – more centrally located than the Titanic Quarter Belfast Premier Inn. The room was a standard ‘Premier Inn’, so those who’ve stayed with this chain will know what to expect. It was clean and roomy with a desk, tv chair, small flat screen tv, hairdryer and basic tea/coffee facilities. The bathroom handbasin was outside the bathroom which is convenient if sharing a room.

Bedding was comfortable and shower hot and strong. Bathroom was a pod shower (no bathtub) although I found that water in the shower drained very slowly, sometimes backing up.

Like all Premier Inns, 30 minutes free internet access is available each day, with longer access available for purchase.

I used the restaurant/bar twice – it’s a ‘place the order and collect it yourself from the ground floor’ arrangement, although my caesar salad was a little bland. They provide the standard food and beverage range particular to Premier Inns (e.g. all you can eat cooked breakfast for around GBP8.25 p/p).

Minor issues: Rooms weren't particluarly soundproof and echo almost every conversation from the street below – bring earplugs for a restful sleep. In addition, the hotel is closeby to popular clubs and pubs and on weekends you’ll likely experience the usual influx of party goers who tend to be noisy on their return in the early hours. I note the hotel has a maximum two adults to-a-room policy, in an effort to minimise party rooms perhaps.

The windows in my rooms were unable to be openend.I saw no evidence of bed bugs, had no problems either and saw nothing on internet registries (noting there is a distinct lack of any centralised UK internet bedbug reporting).

Security was reasonable with the usual swipe card access for elevators, rooms and for the main hotel entrance after 11pm. On weekends there was also a doorman checking that guests entering were registered. My room also had a manual door lock but no in-room safe. Staff were friendly, polite, efficient and helpful. Did not use carpark.

There’s a snack bar/drink machine dispenser in the foyer, although stock tends to run down on weekends, and reception also sell bottled water. Luggage is able to be stored behind reception until/after check-in/out. No guest laundry.

Unlike other Premier Inns I’ve encountered, you deal with a real person at a proper reception desk, rather than the awkward do-it-yourself check-in machines. Staff were polite and efficient.

Nearby: Within three block’s walk you’ll be in the main shopping precint of the city with plentiful cafes, shops, newsagents, a Marks & Spencers. The Titanic Museum is an interesting and easy 20 minute walk down to Albert Square (look for the 1.25m lean on the clock!), past the Big Fish sculpture, over the bridge and left.

For something unusual/different: Take a 15 minute walk around the nearby small lanes for some interesting history. Metal on the wall edges indicates protection of the brickwork from once steel-wheeled carts. In Exchange lane, about halfway down, you’ll see two bricks on the ground with reversed writing, signifying the devastation in the area from WWII bombing. If you visit the Belfast Museum, look out for the blitz photo which includes a historical photo of the nearby Northern Whig building. I also walked up along Shankill Road, and across to Falls Road via the Peace Wall (around 1 hour to walk) to view Belfast’s controversial history.

Transport: The city airport (George Best) is around ten minutes drive (taxi cost approx. GBP10), and the main bus departure point (next to the Europa hotel), the same. Belfast is fairly walkable, although the Europa area will take around a ½ hour to walk to.

Would stay again.

Room Tip: Some rooms are located quite a distance from elevators.
