I generally like Ibis hotels (and other hotels in the Accor group). The Belfast Queens Quarter one is particularly good. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are fine for a budget hotel. The bathroom is in a "pod" at one side of the main room - I have seen this at some other Ibis hotels.

There was plenty of choice at breakfast. I usually had fresh fruit, cooked English breakfast (sometimes a bit the worse for wear after standing out in the buffet for some time) and excellent baguettes. The coffee (from a machine) was good. There were also cereals, yoghourts, cold meats and lots of other things.

The hotel is close to Queens University which is well worth seeing. Just across the road is Botanic Avenue with lots of restaurants, including many frequented by students. It is quite a long walk into the centre of Belfast, but if you have a car the hotel is convenient as there is free parking on the road outside. When I was there, there were roadworks which prevented parking but the hotel had an arrangement with another hotel nearby and I was able to park free in their car park.

All in all I would say this is a very good budget hotel option.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room and was given one on the top (6th) floor at the end of the corridor. There...

I recently stayed at this hotel ( the first time at an IBIS)

I arrived very early and my room wasn't ready which is understandable. The staff did their best to get my room ready, which was done in about an hour.
This was excellent as it was still only 0930 and the check in time was 1400 hours.

The room itself was fine for a budget hotel. TV was a bout small but then again this wasn't the Burj in Dubai.

The following morning I got up early to have breakfast. Being a veggie their wasn't much choice in the HOT food section apart from scrambled egg and beans... Oh and toast.

The eggs looked as if they'd been their all week (now was Thursday!) and they tasted likewise. Whatever this was, it certainly didn't taste like scrambled egg!!
The sauce in the beans was fine but the beans again must have been the cheapest they could find.

In the end I settle with a cup of coffee and Muesli, which for 6.95 was a joke!

overall.. I don't think i'll ever stay at an IBIS again... Pay the bit extra and stay at the Holiday Inn!

Room Tip: Travellers Tip... Stay here but don't have the food!

A colleague and I were booked in here for 2 nights to attend a conference at Queens University, and we added on 2 nights in order to have a weekend in Belfast before it started.
Check in was very easy and straight forward- very helpful receptionist. We had swipe cards as security in order to access the lifts or stairs to the bedrooms. The bedroom was a good size with twin beds, and good amenties - flat screen TV, plenty of plug sockets for charging items, hairdryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. The bed was firm and the pillow a bit lumpy. Managed to sleep pretty well despite this.
The bathroom was interesting - not a proper room - more of a plastic pod in the corner of the room. However it was perfectly functional, the shower had double doors, had good power and always plenty of hot water. We had fun with the towels. Initially were given 2 standard towels, and so we went down to reception to ask for 2 hand towels and were given them. After our room was cleaned the following day the hand towels had disappeared. We went down to enquire again and were told that only a standard towel is only supplied now. This is somewhat of a pain as hand towels are generally used for drying hair and the standard towel isn't really big enough to do both.
Breakfast was buffet style with a fair selection of hot and cold food. The juice isn't fresh but the tea was good.
It was approx a 15 min walk into Belfast city centre from the hotel, and a 10 min walk to the University - which was a great position for our needs. I would be happy to stay at this hotel again - even more so if they provide 2 towels and improve the pillows!

If you want to be guaranteed a room then book somewhere else! Despite booking and paying for a room 3 weeks in advance, when I arrived the room wasn't available. This wasn't actually explained to me - I made the presumption based on the fact that the duty Manager was called and he then started phoning other hotels!
No explanation was ever provided and the assumption seemed to be that as they had located me a room in another hotel there wasn't a problem. If I had wanted to stay in the alternate hotel I would have booked it in the first place - I didn't, but was left with no choice.
Such a pity but I would never take a chance again and couldn't possibly recommend to others.

I stayed at the Ibis while I was on business in the area and it was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable (the IBIS standard room), the staff were very helpful and printed a document for me that morning -- I often need things printed and not everywhere will do it. Breakfast is paid for separately and there is plenty of choice in the continental breakfast option. I would (and probably will) stay here again.

Stayed just one Saturday night as part of trip to Titanic Belfast. Had used Ibis in France many times so had no great expectations but this was much better. Staff were welcoming and very helpful, no parking available so the receptionist phoned the Hoiliday Inn to check we could park there instead; just 150 yds away. Room, with the exception of the bedside shelf which still had a sticky cup mark on it, was spotless. Good size, as was the bathroom. Very quiet. Decided as it was raining to change our plans to go out to eat and eat in the reataurant. Menu looked ok but the food was awful. We had a Pizza which was so dry and slightly burnt and the chicken & ham pie was just lots of pastry and little else. We did complain and it was obvious this was not the first complaint but no-one offered any solution other than to complete the comments card in the room. Actually the only comments card is to nominate someone for great service! In the end we were given a pen & paper and were able to write our complaint to the Manager. Breakfast was better; really good selection and not dried up as is often the case with buffets. Warm plates would help as we both ended up with cold baked beans. Other than this really very good. I would stay at the hotel again as the service was great, the room clean & comfortable and staff/service first class but would choose to eat out!

Room Tip: Room 401; good size and very quiet. No view but hey who needs one!
