Stayed here for a three night city break. Ideal location central to shopping area and attractions. Can walk to most sights, but buses plentiful and taxi services are just outside the door!
We arrived at 10am and were able to check in straight away. The room was clean & fresh. The bed was comfortable for sleeping. There was air con, t.v and tea/coffee making facilities. The bathroom is a self contained pod in one corner of the room and we found this was perfectly adequate & it was fitted with a good shower. The breakfast each morning was good; self service with a reasonable selection of hot foods, breads, cereals, yogurts, fruit, cold meats etc. It appeared to be very busy around 8am - 8.30am each morning. This hotel is for people wanting a fuss free base. Communal facilities are minimal and there is no exterior hotel space for guest use (personally, this was not a problem). The bar and restaurant service are always available and service is good if a little slow at times as available staff can become easily swamped if busy. Internet access is available, for a charge, by the bar. The staff were always friendly, helpful and took time to give good service.
Across the road is a pub which also offers a small off licence. There are many pubs and bars nearby, but we recommend going out of the hotel and heading across the road to the right of the car parks to Maddens Bar. This offered excellent hospitality, good beer, friendly people and some informal Irish music played by locals gathering together.
To answer earlier comments, darkness came early, but we felt comfortable outside at any time of day or night and shabby streets are a part of any city. Belfast and Castle street area was always friendly and welcoming both from local people and local businesses.
