City hotel Belfast

Nice clean hotel
Good service
Extremely busyfordinner hence dining at 9 .
Poorly allocated table - looked and felt like an add on , hence I moved tables . Steak arrived undercooked
Second one much better.
My ptnr had chicken which was overdone and disappointing .
Sides on the small side.

Hmmm the jury's out on this one

10/10, had no faults with the hotel or staff members!! My partner & I stayed in a beautiful corner suite of the Derry City hotel enjoyed the walk to and from the shops and also had taken a mouth watering 3 corse meal to follow in the hotels trendy restaurant!! We are returning again on the 26th of this month and are really looking forward to it.. Not a hotel to be missed when in Derry, especially at it's reasonable prices :)

Transfer from the airport is about 20 minutes depending on traffic. The hotel is centrally located beside the River Foyle with the bus station 5 minutes walk away. It is very close to various shops, bars & restaurants. Parking is available under the hotel and is accessed via a secure entrance.

The reception area leads to the Coppins Bar & Lounge area which also serves food, Thompsons Restaurant and 2 lifts to the rooms. The lifts can get a bit busy at "peak" times.
Efficient check in process and very friendly staff, I arrived a little early (before 2pm) and was expecting to have to wait for my room but surprised to be given access. Check out is12 noon.

Room 509 was a corner room directly opposite the lift with a great view of the River Foyle, Guildhall & city. Although close to the lift it was not noisy. Room facilities included: tea / coffee tray, hairdryer, satellite TV, iron & board and complimentary toiletries. There was no air conditioning but a large fan was available.

Breakfast is served from 6.30 – 10am (M-F) in the Thompsons Restaurant, there was a good selection of hot / cold food with great service from the staff.

Overall, this hotel is in an ideal location for a visit to Londonderry. All the staff were very friendly & welcoming, making my stay most enjoyable.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel get great views of the river. Corner rooms are light & airy e.g...

I was in Derry on my own and stayed at the City Hotel. My entire experience was very positive. The hotel was easy to get to from the major roadways and was still connected to the walled city. The staff was friendly and my room was spacious and comfortable with an incredible view of the city and the freedom bridge. I felt very comfortable being on my own here. I highly recommend this hotel.

If you're visiting Derry this is the place to stay. It's right in the centre of the Derry, 2 minutes walk from the walls of Derry, right beside shops, restaurants and beside the river Foyle. Restaurant in the hotel serves good food and a great buffet breakfast. Be aware that there are lots of tours at this hotel so restaurant is busy early in the morning and for dinner in the evening. Dinner for two plus bottle of wine was only £35 fantastic value. Rooms are average, double beds are very small so worth paying extra for the limited amount of Superior Rooms they have. WIFI is subject to the deal you book. No in room safe.

Room Tip: Pay extra for Superior Room which has King Bed as Double/Twin Room Beds are very small.

Just back from an overnight stay in City hotel. We got a room at front overlooking river and the peace bridge, fantastic views only problem was the windows wouldn't open more than 2 inches and they were filthy so didn't get as nice a view as we had expected.Hotel staff were very nice and the doorman was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Meals were good room was clean basically couldn't fault this hotel other than dirty windows.

Room Tip: Ask for room at front overlooking river

It was a spacious clean hotel. No outlets near the beds, but a desk and table for electronics. Bathroom was clean and large. Staff was friendly and helpful. The beds were comfy and we had a great view of the city. However the wifi was an absolute pain. Every 24 hours we had to log on again with four random code words we got from the front desk. But that would be my only complaint.
