Friendly clean and a great bar to
Advertised as a budget hotel this exceeded expectations, from the friendly greeting on arrival to the efficent checking out this was a good experience. The unexpected gem was Chambers the attached bar / restaurant that has a wonderful atmosphere and served up the best meal I have had in a long while. Only stayed the one night but breakfast was also good, even though we were not down till almost the end of the session yet there was still plenty of everything available and hot. Ok the hotel isnt 5star luxury but it never claims to be, but for its price location and overall presentation it was perfect for me and I wouldnt hesitate to book there again
If you are part of a stag or hen party then this hotel will be ok for you.
If you like to sleep at night then think again
Terrible customer service - Never going again
Have stayed at this hotel previously without any issues - central, quiet, good varied breakfast, clean basic rooms, same as other holiday inn expresses basically. However had the misfortune to stay there recently. All was fine - myself and my room mate went to have showers late Sunday morning prior to our late check out (and going for a flight) and shower was cold - phoned reception, assured that it would be fine shortly, staff visted room, checked and said try in a few minutes and it would work .... did so, still cold .... phoned reception again, gave up waiting and started to use shower .... told was an issue on whole of floor (worrying as we were a late check out, could a hotel run out of warm water) told could use another room .... but on separate floor and over other side of hotel .... it was the indignation that we were greeted with when we checked out which was the most galling. I know that all hotels can have problems but to be greeted by a smile from one member of staff and a shrug from another when we stated that we were not happy with what happened is insulting ... it may be minor but, in my view, shows a lack of respect for paying customers! NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN
Great breakfast! friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay knowing this was a budget hotel.Not too far from the city centre and reasonably priced.Clean well kept, overall good value!
Good except heat and noise
Stayed two nights on one of many business trips to Belfast. The Hotel is located close to many resturants in the University district of South Belfast. Reception staff are efficient and welcoming. A cooked breakfast buffet was included in room price.
My room was reasonably comfortable but not very large. Everything worked. Bathroom was a basic "wet room" design and the shower with its mini skirt curtain did just that - soaked the whole floor.
It was summer, the room was hot and aircon seemed absent. I had to open the window for ventiation which let in traffic noise from busy road outside the front of the property. Also the walls, and doors adjoining rooms, have inadequate soundproofing. A noisy neighbour kept me awake until I phoned him to complain.
Whilst a bargain, I prefer a hotel where I can sleep undisturbed.
Great Value Hotel
I stayed for four nights. Its very good value. The Buffet Breakfast was excellent, a good variety of food and always well stocked.
The staff were generally very young, always had a smile and were very very helpful.
My room was adequate and the shower was good, maintaining a good pressure at all times.
For the money charged, this is a really good value Hotel.
Its only a short walk from the Centre of Belfast.
This hotel is as described in the previous reviews, bland (and why not?), efficient, and in a nice neighborhood. The early morning continetal self-service breakfast was excellent - and self service is a great improvement on porr service. I was delighted with the good value that this hotel represents - so as it delivers exactly what it promises - I rate it excellent.
Predictable, reliable....and bland
This is very much the standard Holiday Inn Express experience. Rooms are reliably functional, if a little bland. The hotel is 'non-service', so don't expect the fripperies that 3*+ hotels normally provide (and normally charge the earth for).
That said, the location is good, in a salubrious student-dominated suburb within easy access of the city centre and a five minute walk from the very appealing bars and restaurants of Malone Road and Botanic Avenue.
If you want a reliable hotel at modest cost in an appealing location, this is the place for you; if you're after something with character, try elsewhere.
We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Belfast on 5th February 2005. The Hotel was in an excellent location as there are really good bars and restaurants nearby. We initially were given a room that was supposed to be non smoking which smelt quite strongly of smoke and the lights didn't work, but this was quickly resolved and we were given another room that was ok except it had a shower for the disabled. Apart from this the hotel was clean, the staff were v helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
Clean and comfortable
A clean and comfortable place to stay, decent double room with cable tv, decent bathroom and competent staff who all seemed very young and inexperienced but nonetheless competent. The place is built from a hotel template so there will be no pleasant surprises here, you get what you expect but nothing else... which is fine. No room service.
They have a carpark which is handy for this city.

So, now that I am settling in and getting my bearings straight, Belfast and the surrounding area has become an easy place to fall in love with. And for the next nine months, it is my home away from home, and I couldn't be happier about it!
... for 50p you could buy a spongey hockey puck and when announced everyone at once has to throw them from where ever you want outside the rink as close to the centre as they could. I got pretty close but not close enough. The game finished around 9:30 we walked back to our hotel and had dinner in the restaurant where we just shared a meal and had a drink each after chatting and relaxing we went up to the room to pack our suitcases, watch t.v and head to bed. ...
