Nightmare to find, otherwise OK
DO NOT use the directions the Travelodge website linsk to for this hotel. They are awful!! We wasted nearly 2 hours trying to find it. Eventually rang the reception only to find out we were up the road. Parking isn't great - the car park opposite they say you can use is tiny. We parked in the Queens Square car park which was £18 overnight.
Otherwise hotel was just what you would expect from a Travelodge - basic but comfy. Location was central and walkable to all shops/bars etc.
Great stay at the Travelodge
Had a great stay at the Travelodge Liverpool. While Travelodge's seem to be rather minimalist this one in Liverpool was very modern with a bit of personality. Location wise it can't be beat. Just off Liverpool Lime Station and the Bus Terminal directly behind and the main shopping centre directly off the hotel it made it very convenient to get around and directly in front of all the tourist spots.
We were upgraded to Family Room and can comfortably sleep 4 with nice tea & coffee amenities and cafe's restaraunts adjacent. Unbelievable value @ 26 GB Pounds due to their saver rates.
Great Location,Great Price.
My wife and I spent a night in Travelodge Liverpool Central 29 Nov.2005.Our room was big,warm and comfortable.The hotel is within walking distance,5 minutes,to Queens Square Bus Station where you can get a bus to almost anywhere.We got a bus to Liverpool Philharmonic Hall,where we were attending a concert,for £1 each.Also,Queens Square has a lot of bars,resteraunts,fast food take aways and shopping.We booked this hotel at £26 for the room.How can you beat that? The staff were pleasant and friendly.We arrived at 11 am,and though the check in is not until 3pm,we were allowed to check in at 11 am.We highly recommend this Travelodge Hotel.
Get what you pay for?
We went to Liverpool to see a football game and to shop so we wanted a hotel situated in the city centre but still at a low price. Travelodge seemed like a good choice (we stayed at a Travelodge earlier and was quite happy then). And it was but I'm glad i found theese rewiews before we left.
The reseptionist was a very nice young man (people in Liverpool are!) and we had no trouble with the vending machines or the elevator. When we opened the door to the room the heat overwhelmed us so we rushed to open the window. It did'nt help wery much and because of the trafic we had to close it before we went to sleep. Just as someone else said in their rewiew...
The room was average sized and clean. We were a bit surprised that the maid did not enter our room during our 3 night stay. She just knocked at the door and asked if everything was OK and if we needed anything. We just asked to get som new towels and teabags.
All in all our stay in Liverpool was very nice but I'm not sure how it would have been if we weren't prepared after reading other guests experiences.
The heat in the room puzzeled us and we think the hotel management should adress this problem.
If we will stay there again? I'm not sure - because of lack of sleep I think not - but then again it's so perfectly situated in the city centre!
Hot... But not so hot !
Stayed here after arriving on a late-night Ryanair flight from Spain.
On checking-in around midnight, in a small reception area with a vandalised snack machine, we were presented with an electronic key-card which we were told would operate the lift as well as our room door.
Couldn't get the card to operate the lift no matter how hard we tried. On returning to the desk were told to 'jiggle it a bit and it will work'. After another 10 mins of 'jiggling it a bit' and 2 more trips back to the desk, were finally given a replacement that worked. After travelling all day this is the last thing we wanted to be doing at midnight!!
Room was small but functional and bed was fairly comfortable. However the main problem was the HEAT. We had slept fine in the Spanish heat, but this room was unbearably hot like a sauna all night (although the heating wasn't on) which prevented a proper night's sleep.
With the window open there was noise as well. To top it all off, builders started work on the building site overlooked by our window at 6am !
Not a good nights sleep at all.
My husband and I traveled to Liverpool for a friend's wedding. Although our friends had suggested hotels, none were in the city center (ie, a car would be needed) or within our budget.
We arrived at Lime Street Station and were heartened to see that the Travelodge was only 3 blocks away (I had read online that it was 1.5 miles!). We walked in a few hours prior to check-in and the staff was cordial and accommodating. We left our luggage and strolled out to Albert Docks to the Tate Liverpool. We had considered the Holiday Inn Express at the docks and saw that while it may be an interesting place to stay, there were limited things to do and it was not that close to the city center.
When we returned to the Travelodge a new floor had been installed around the entrance, adding to the lobby's futuristic charm. Our room was immaculate and not as cramped as I'd imagined after seeing a picture online. The room includes cable tv and coffeemaker. The room was painted in two colors and pleasant pictures were hung on the walls. If you stay there, I can only vouch for rooms that face the street.
The location cannot be beat. The Travelodge is in the midst of Liverpool's great architecture. Pubs, restaurants and boutiques are less than a 3-minute walk. With so many choices, who cares about the frills of a "full-service" hotel? The Travelodge exceeded all expectations and was easy on the pocketbook.
But here's why we can't give the Travelodge five stars: you may have noticed that one review stated there are no telephones. There *are* telephones, but you must pay per call with a credit card. Of the three nights we were there, there were loud parties on two nights. There is no internal phone line and so I had to go in person at 4AM to the front desk to complain about the noise. The staff, to their credit, remedied the problem immediately. If you stay there on a weekend night, I would suggest earplugs.
PS We stopped by the Alicia Hotel where some other friends were staying. It had been voted Merseyside Hotel of the Year 2002-2003 and 2003-2004. It looks nice on the outside, but I was stunned by its musty smell, tiny rooms, and labyrinthine hallways. It was at least double the price we paid. I was glad our friends did not come to our hotel lest they feel twinges of buyer's remorse.
Bad experience at Travelodge City Centre and Liverpool Docks
My husband and I booked a stay at Travelodge, Liverpool docks for the 24th April 2005 in advance. We travelled from Glasgow to Liverpool City Centre and then via taxi to Travelodge Liverpool Docks. We were told on arrival that we would not be able to stay because the hotel was overbooked. We were informed that alternative accommodation was arranged for us at the Hanover Hotel in Liverpool City Centre. There were a couple of problems with this.
1.We specifically booked a room at Liverpool Dock Travelodge as it was more or less adjacent to the function we were attending that evening therefore we would not have to worry about transport to and from the venue which can be problematic on weekend nights.
2.We happen to know that the "Hanover Hotel" is a late night bar and live band venue which does bed and breakfast. Not where we wanted to stay.
When we requested to speak to a manager either on duty or by telephone there were none available. After a conversation with your call centre we were "found" accommodation at the City Centre Travelodge. The Liverpool Dock receptionist was very helpful and apologetic and arranged for a taxi to transport us back to the city centre but was unable to reimburse us for the extra expense in the way of taxi fares that we have incurred due to the "overbooking" situation.
The City Centre Travelodge was mostly full of young clubbers one of whom decided to set fire to a hall carpet around 4.30am. As a result we found ourselves in the main lobby until the Fire Brigade had inspected the damage and cleared the smoke away. No reassurances or directions were given by the reception at any time during this incident. We were obliged to ask a fireman if it was OK to return to our rooms. Guests from other floors had already returned.
We find this rather worrying. But Travelodge head office obviously do not since we have had no response from our letter of complaint dated 28th April 2005 in which we requested reimbursement of taxi fares incurred as a result of Travelodge failure to honour our confirmed booking.
For £26 pounds i didnt expect this , It was absolutely perfect . I was over for an everton match and all i needed was a place to sleep and wash. It was 5minutes from Lime Street and close to the centre . The younger staff were great , friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this to anyone going to liverpool. The room was spacious and clean . Bed big and comfy and the toilet was adequate size. Nice shower . Close to pubs and restaurants . Fantastic overall. Everton won aswell to make it a perfect night .
Liverpool Is Great
Stayed two days, Feb. 8-10, 2004, in Liverpool at the Travelodge Central. Two days isn't enough for a great place like Liverpool. A lot of sights and history in this area. The town is clean and the people are very friendly. Also, they had a great sense of humor. Really enjoyed the town. The Travelodge was brand new and the only bad thing was no telephone in the rooms. The staff was super and very helpful. Taxi drivers were very eager to show off their town and rightfully so.
Good central location
This modern no frills, no services hotel is located on Haymarket Street in central Liverpool, about a 5 minute walk from Liverpool Lime Street train station, the Walker Art Gallery and the shopping area. Room was clean, large, comfortable, characterless. Similar to the Travel Inns, but with no restaurant, nothing but a couple of vending machines in the miniscule lobby.Good budget choice if you just want a place to sleep.

... only one half of it has been uncovered. The rest is built over and unlikely to be excavated, given that some of the buildings that are built over it are themselves Heritage Listed.
Just next to the amphitheatre is one of the entrances to the Walls of the city, much of which still date from Roman times. The city is encircled by just over 3 kilometers of walls, almost all of which is accessible to the public. The walk around the top is a ...
... the cold or just my body complaining about going from 33ºC to 3ºC, but I'm definitely getting sick. Going to call it a night I think and get an early one. Tomorrow I'm hopefully going to explore a lot more of the city, and maybe walk the Roman walls for a bit.
Oh, and I just realised it'll take forever to upload photos with my tethered connection, so that'll have to wait til either I get the wifi working here, or get to Edinburgh with working wifi (hopefully!).

Strawberry Field, (no "S"), was a former Salvation Army children's home and before that was a Victorian Mansion. It's only remains now are the original gates to the old mansion. As a child, one of the highlights of John's year was a visit to attend the annual garden fete held here. Perhaps he felt some sort of kinship with the residents coming as he did from a broken home, the guide said.
On the house across the street. Despite this ...
Monday we head to Liverpool for 2 nights. On the way we stop at the U-Boat Museum at the ferry port in Birkenhead. U-Boats were the terror of the seas in WWII. They had a range of 12,000 miles and sank 2200 boats killing over 62,000 people. Each U-Boat had around 50 men on board in tiny cramped quarters. Of the 40,000 Germans who served on U Boats, 30,000 were killed. The U534 was an IXC/40. It was large and could carry up to 40 ...
... LOOOOL. Then we phoned the hotel and booked a superior room and walked into the hotel lobby to which Paul was standing there and looked FUMING that we had just booked a room. We then sat in the hotel lobby until around 2am and saw Liam come in drunk, we also met all the boys in the morning, then travelled to Manchester to try and meet them AGAIN at their concert then followed them back down to ...
