City hotel Derry is excellent, from the moment we walked through the door the staff were very helpful, advising on where to eat and bars etc. we got parking in the underground car park. Room were perfect, modern and loads of space.one problen though - NO air con!! the heat in the rooms was unbearable. no sleep at all the 1st nite and i went down firest thing the next morn to complain, the girls agreed about the heat and was giving a fan up straight away, house keping also left another fan (but the 2 was defo needed). my chocolate eggs all melted!!!! Apart from that i would really recommend this hotel. breakfast buffet was great, bar was lively and the location is really central - can walk everywere.Would defo stay here again - top class service

Friendly staff at check-in and very helpful hints to make a stay in Derry the more memorable. Rooms appear to be recently refurbished with flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facility, trouser press and good sized bathroom. Notably and unfortunately no in-room safe. Hotel is adjacent to the city's ancient walls and accessible to all the shops and downtown pubs. A very comfortable night's sleep and easily recommendable.

This is a beautiful 4 star hotel in downtown Derry, Northern Ireland. Our room was very nice and spotlessly clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and they served a very nice buffet breakfast in the restaurant. Hotel guests have use of a full service health club and indoor pool located inside the hotel. It is located blocks from the historic city walls of Derry and only about a block from the Guildhall.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have very nice views.

Decent hotel, decent location. However rooms were HOT!!! Even with air con on full blast cold, then I tried opening windows. Chocolate melted hot. Bathroom door wouldn't close, but that's the height of issues - friendly staff, good location, quiet and clean. I'll stay again next time I'm up.

I spent the month of March in the City Hotel on a long term work assignment. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. They were super friendly, always willing to help and go the extra mile to make sure I was happy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 5th or 6th floor.
