“Budget hotel but basic”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

Stayed two nights in July 2012 with my son. This is advertised as a budget hotel so I guess one should not expect more than budget quality. The hotel is one building on the block in the photograph - this is NOT the whole hotel as one might imagine. At the time of visiting access was difficult because of road works on University Street and parking in the surrounding roads is difficult during the week, though OK at the weekend. The room was basic and functional but not comfortable - apart from the beds there was only an one office type chair to sit on. The room had a pod bathroom that was OK but not very clean and the squeezy soap had run out, which I only realised at about 11pm. The breakfast at £7 per day per person was not good value - limited choice and the cooked food was over-cooked and tepid. There's a Starbucks down the road that is probably better value. One night there was a very loud party being very loud at around 2am and the hotel seem not too concerned about this antisocial behaviour. That said the staff were generally friendly and helpful. The situation of the hotel is good, in the Queens University district, which is generally quieter than the city centre but is well served with restaurants, shops and other amenities. So in all this is a functional hotel that is OK for a short stay.

Very clean, modernized rooms. Excellent services.
Convenient location, close to Queens university and central train station.
I had a very pleasant stay and I would recommend it to any friend who is staying in Belfast for a short time whether business or leisure.

stayed for 1 night with my family & booked 3 rooms. Staff on arrival no very helpful they could only find 2 of our rooms and was left waiting for till they found the other booking. When i made a conversation with lady staff member is didn't answer me and just said ehh! on booking it said there was a car park however when we reached the hotel in the rain there was no car park. no pull out bed in room for children and room didn't lock from the inside so my 2 year old could open the door no problem. night staff member's were very nice and friendly & tried to fix it but couldn't and put in a bed for my child. Surrounding area run down with lots of kids hanging around

Room Tip: don't stay in room 305 door dose not lock from inside

Good value hotel. Friendly staff. Nothing flash but does the job. Hairdryers, tea & coffee making facilities, TV. Like Nick P - should have checked the shower gel situation before stepping under the shower. Needed a night stop when travelling with my daughter to the university open day (which is a stone's throw away)

I stayed here for one night and found it fulfilled my basic needs very well (comfortable bed, clean room, friendly staff, decent bar, quiet room without road noise). Pricewise, it was excellent (£55 B&B incl. Wifi) and compared to my nearest comparison (Premier Inn Aberdeen) was roughly half the price. This is all quite acceptable for a city centre hotel and it was also near a number of decent restaurants and bars on Botanic Ave.

However, I travelled light as I was to be in Belfast for less than 24 hours... hand luggage only and I didn't faff around with clear plastic bags for toileteries. I assumed that there would be shower gel in the hotel room.... I only found out the dispenser was empty when I was already in the shower. The front desk said that it would just have been a case of me ringing down for some more... but I was already in the shower at that point. The soap dispenser next to the sink was also empty, I found out at the same time! I suppose I found the lack of attention to this detail frustrating given how little there was in these basic rooms for a house-keeper to check.

Finally the cooked breakfast was dismal. Almost literally without taste at all, which is quite an achievement. However, I think it is fair to say that on balance this hotel represents excellent value for the room alone in the location it is in (which is within 1 minutes walk of one of my key Belfast customers). Next time I will check the room for shower gel when I check-in and have the continental breakfast option!

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...
