The hotel's location is just perfect. The Europa Bus station is only a 15-minute walk and shops & the city centre are just around the corner of Castle Street. Everything is within walking distance. We were in Belfast to attend a concert and we walked right up to the Odyssey in 20 mins. Another plus: There's a supermarket right opposite the hotel.
Check-in & check-out were fairly easy. Except that we booked a double & twin room months ago and it turned out there were no twin rooms available when we arrived.
Rooms were clean & it looked like it was all just redone. We were a party of 4 so we had 2 rooms. One just regular size, the other bigger, as it turned out to be a disabled room. This room was extremely hot though, even though we'd had air conditioning on 16 degrees the entire day. Bathrooms were clean, really good showers. Bed was a little hard, but we did have a good nights sleep. My friends did not though, as they heard the couple in the room next door having sex most of the night, they could almost make out everything they were saying. So you can imagine they weren't too pleased. Our room was at the front, right above the entrance, and the road was pretty busy during the day. But it was totally quiet at night. First time for us to sleep well without needing ear plugs.
Breakfast was pretty ok, but not much to choose from. But then again it was only 5 pounds, so what would you expect. Crossaints weren't really tasty, the apple juice really really sweet.
And another thing we were kind of surprised about: We came down to have dinner on Saturday afternoon (5.30) and sat down in the dining area, at one of the set tables. Staff were cleaning the area. And we were sure the reception staff had noticed us, but still they totally ignored us. Okay, maybe we should have gone up to tell them we wanted to have dinner, but then again, if you see guests sitting down, don't you come over to ask if we'd like anything? So we decided to leave and have dinner somewhere else.
But besides that we had a pleasant stay overall and I'd certainly recommend the hotel for it's location and price.
