“B'day weekend in Belfast”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Stayed here in June with friends. Two families - 9 of us in 3 rooms. Fantastic value - got a great deal, lovely chatty helpful staff, great breakfast, extremely clean and comfortable - would be very happy to stay here again. The family rooms aren't huge, but they use the space well and 4 of us managed to have our own (albeit limited) personal space! Nice large widescreen TV, tea and coffee facilities - what's not to like?!

This visit was planned around the Titanic exhibition - took us 20mins to walk there from the hotel. Hotel very centrally located 10 mins walk to major shopping areas. We spent Friday night in the Crown Pub (National Trust) opposite the Europa Hotel and Saturday in the Titanic quarter, doing the Segway tour and the Exhibition itself - highly recommended - excellent. That night we went to James St bar and Grill - again recommended, teenagers loved it and on Sunday, after a hearty cooked breakfast, we drove up to the Giants Causeway and crossed over the Carrick a Rede rope bridge. This was a weekend we wont forget for a while.

I was on regular business trips to Belfast for the first 5 months of 2014. I booked the weekly two night stops on mass and got a great price in the January sale. The Hotel is in easy walking distance of Belfast City Centre and the Train & Coach station in Victoria Street, where a regular coach service serves both of Belfast's airports. Although always very busy, the hotel is a lot quieter then the Premier Inn Belfast cathedral quarter, where all night revellers are frequent. The staff are excellent to their business customers; placing them onto a quite floor away from the holiday makers and remembering an individuals dietary needs. The rooms have a central large flat screen TV with PC & AUX sockets for Laptops and cameras. The bathrooms are clean and the hot water is instance from 5:30 am. - excellent.

Room Tip: The Alfred Street side has great views of the east of the city, but gets street noise, which dies do...

Stayed here for a long weekend (Thursday - Sunday) with partner and son.

location is a strong selling point of this hotel. Europa Bus Station is less than 10mins walk which have a direct link to the airport. City hall, St George's Indoor Market and city centre are all less than 10mins walk also. Walk down at the opposite direction to Ormeau Road and you will find a cinema and numerous pubs / restaurants for a taste of night life in Belfast.

Check in and Check out was a breeze with answers to whatever questions you have.

Breakfast was above average. the usual cooked breakfast (eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, beans and mushrooms), fresh fruit and different types of cereals. Tea and coffee with fruit juice

room was a decent size for UK standard with tea/coffee facility, hair dryer and loads of towels. no toiletries though. air conditioning works well and quite. flat screen LCD TV, no sure about the channels because we weren't in the room for long apart from sleep and shower. the bed was comfortable which is a big bonus as a good sleep is much needed with all the sightseeing.

tip - do the Hop on / Hop off City City Sightseening tour as the open top bus takes you to all the sights including Titanic museums, Crumlin Road Gaol, Peace Wall, Shankill Road... etc. bus will even pick you up at the front door of the hotel.

A couple of things marred our visit, but I'd definitely stay here again. 1) There was a fire alarm in the middle of the night --someone trying to collect dishonestly on their peaceful night's sleep guarantee?

2) The keycard machine was broken so we were only issue a single card for our room. When it stopped working it was quite a hassle getting it reprogrammed.

The good stuff: nice breakfast, great location, clean room (if on the small side of what we are used to). The staff were incredibly kind and bent over backwards to do everything in their power to be helpful. This is a very kids friendly place (kids breakfasts are free with adult breakfast) and there were lots of families staying there.

Hello C_G_7!

Thank you for taking the time to write us such a great review! Your feedback is very much appreciated by all of our team here so thank you for taking the time.

I am extremely pleased to read that our staff were so exceptional throughout your stay, we already know how fantastic they are but it really means a lot to them to be so well recognised by our guests. Unfortunately we did have a few “hiccups” throughout your stay and we hope you can accept our sincerest apologies for any interruptions throughout your visit. It is disappointing when unforeseen events happen and disturb our guests but we do pride ourselves on being able to efficiently work through any situation whilst always putting our guests first.

We all look forward to your next visit and thank you again for choosing us as your place to stay!!

Great place to stay as a tourist, really close to the centre of town and 10 mins taxi to Titanic Experience. The staff were beyond friendly, surprising our 9 yr old son with a birthday card which absolutely made his day. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for great value and great service.

Good location, staff were chatty and very helpful. Unfortunately we were put in a room that didn't exist (719 - no such room - ends at 718 LOL) problems with the reception computer, drunk set off the fire alarm at 1.30am so the entire hotel was evacuated but this was done extremely well and the staff were very apologetic. We still feel that the Premier Inn do the best breakfast .... EVER!! Unfortunately their evening food isn't up to standard. Overall you can't beat a Premier and this one is a good one!!

Room Tip: In case of fire evacuation - pick a low level room!!
