6 night stay May 2014: The hotel was situated about a 10 minute taxi ride (cost about 4 pounds) outside of the city center in the Queen's University district. Therefore, it was either short taxi ride, bus ride or long walk to most of the city center attractions. However, there was a nice street with good restaurants and shops nearby to the hotel called Botanic Avenue that was helpful for grabbing a coffee or a meal prior to or after the days sightseeing. The hotel itself was very dated with the bathrooms being in especially bad condition. Additionally, a number of the staff seemed to be local university students who did not seem to care much about customer service - for example, one night I asked the front desk person to help me with booking of tickets for a show and he told me that I needed to do it myself.
