The Etap is a welcome addition to Belfast's budget hotel scene. It's clean. The wifi works. Cups of tea and coffee down at reception. Brand newl construction and furnishings. Clean bed, shower and lavvy. Extra towels - all super clean. TV works. Price is good - crucially the advertised rate is also refundable, unlike its competitors. The staff are all friendly and accommodating, actually overhwlemingly so, down to the late night security fella. It's not the Ritz (or the Stormont), but you get more than what you pay for (£36 a night when I booked) - it's much better than average for a no-frills hotel. Bring your own soap - they don't provide any, and be prepared to trek down to reception for tea and coffee (wonder if these are hallmarks of a French parent company yet to learn the expectations of guests on these isles). One side of the hotel overlooks one of Belfast's louder beer gardens - depending on what you're like you'll either need earplugs to sleep or benefit from not needing to call a cab to take you back at closing time. I'll certainly be back to stay.
