“Very Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a very nice hotel. Right next door to the Peace Bridge. We got a great room on the six floor overlooking the peace bridge. This place is right on the river next to all the action downtown. Not much is open after hours and the metal shutter of all the shops come down and you will be walking down empty streets. I would recommed this hotel if you want somthing that is close to all the key places that are in londonderry. The room was very hot, we did not have AC, on the lower floor our friends had AC.

stayed in City hotel on Sunday 28 July as we were going to the Nile Rogers concert in The Venue. Parking below hotel was great and our room had a fantastic view over the River Foyle and The Peace Bridge. Dinner which was included in the price was delicious, the pork was cooked to perfection and the blueberry ice cream served in a brandy basked was lush!
The bed was massive and so comfy. Together with a brilliant concert, we had a night to remember. Will definitely be back again.

It's not often that I take the time to comment on a venue through Tripadvisor. In fact this is my third effort in as many years. It's been remiss and unbecoming of me not to have taken the time to put into words, and pass on praise and heartfelt thanks to the City Hotel, Derry.
When I say the hotel, of course I mean the whole community of the City Hotel.

I organised a Charity Ball three years ago and hosted it in the City Hotel having tried
other venues; the difference was extraordinary! Every effort which myself and other organisers
made was surpassed by not one but all of the staff. They are a truly wonderful team or family
if the truth be told. We're now in the process of planning our 4th consecutive Ball in the hotel ,
the theme being 'Mols and Gangsters'. As usual Glenn and his team will have the ballroom
typically decorated in 1920's style. The dining will be superb as usual and affordable too.

Whether you decide to reside in the CIty Hotel, which I would highly recommend, or simply
call in for dinner or a wee pint you'll discover a homely, yet totally professional atmosphere.
You'll be given a warm Derry welcome, with smiles all around .

The hotel is in an excellent location in the city, is clean, and the air conditioned room was great on a muggy night, but what raises this hotel above the rest are the friendly enthusiastic staff, both receptionists were busy on the phone when we arrived, but both welcomed us with a smile, and the manager was ready to jump in to check us in. We will definately be back.

Arrived on a Saturday in July. Superior Room very hot and could only open the window a couple of inches. There was a desk fan but this did not do much to cool the room. Very hot all night. Staff very pleasant but a large hotel with little character.

Dear Wyn D,
Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear you found the staff very pleasant, it was indeed a very warm period during your stay it is unfortunate you found the fan to be ineffective, may i suggest another room for your next visit as many of our rooms have air conditioning.
