Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Hotel, Belfast
Leaves alot to be desired
Having recently stayed during a business trip, I found alot to be desired at this hotel.
Upon check in I was disgusted by the attitude of the female receptionist, not only could they not find my reservation even though I had printed confirmation, but they proceeded to overcharge me.
As for the bedroom, I did not expect dirty bathroom towels and most certainly not urine stains around the toilet bowl, this was reported to the duty manager, but nothing materialised.
My evening meal left me feeling disheartned as the waiter practically threw my food at me and the bar staff didn't seem to want my custom.
In summary I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. There are plenty of other welcoming hotels in Beflast.
Would recommend and return myself
Stayed at this hotel last weekend. The hotel itself is an impressive building - and the decor inside very simple and stylish. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Had lunch in the hotel restaurant (great) and breakfast the following day was excellent - great choice, fresh food and nicely cooked.
My room was great - made what was a very brief stay, very relaxing. All mod cons, very clean and really nicely styled.
I would definately recommend. Location, I thought, was fine. One of those areas that is being developed so will only get better I would imagine. Only a 5-10 minute walk to city hall and shops/bars etc.
21st Century Hotel
As a member of a GLOBUS tour that toured Ireland for 2 weeks, we found this hotel to be one of 4 truly outstanding properties that we stayed in. There is a 'WOW' factor when you first enter your room. The hotel rooms look like something from the tv cartoon 'The Jetsons'. Fantastic decor - very modern looking - everything working perfectly and was impeccibly clean. Our meals were truly outstanding and the breakfast was the most varied and complete of any hotel we stayed in. If there is a criticism, it is that the hotel is not right in the centre of town but rather in an industrial area. Walking into town is possible, but it is a bit of a hike to some of the best pubs/shopping.
Good Value in Belfast
This hotel is very typical of Radisson SAS Hotels. The service was very friendly, the hotel was very clen and well maintained. Our breakfasts were great and we dined one evening in the restaurant, a very good meal. The location was not the best as we arrived from the airport via the airport direct bus to the center of Belfast. The hotel is about a 15 mnute walk from the bus drop off.
Best hotel in Belfast
Absolutely stunning hotel - contemporary luxury! No expense has been spared on the decor and layout - The only thing missing from this wonderful hotel is a fitness suite/pool.
Will be back!
Just back after a fab weekend in this hotel, staff are very helpfull and friendly. Food is top notch and service second to none. Only gripe would be that there is no leisure facilities on site.

A stylish havan
Styed in the Radisson SAS Belfast recently and absolutely loved it. A really stylish, contemporary hotel in a quiet area. Rooms are large and well equipped. Food lovely. Service excellent and they even accomodated a late check out at 3pm!
Stayed here for one night on the 4th December, absolutely awesome hotel, everything very modern and well thought out. The rooms had every toiletry you could think of and had some great details (speakers in the bathroom so you can hear the tv in there too! magnified mirror for shaving). The bed was massive and extremely comfy. Rooms air-conditioning excellent. Reception staff were very helpful in booking us a taxi back to the airport. Breakfast was superb with everything under the sun available, also had a nice touch in that breakfast was served til 1pm on the sunday, great for lovers of a lie-in! Was in easy walking distance to the city centre. Booked the hotel for a bargain £75 a night using the radisson website, awesome value.
All in all a superb hotel in a very friendly city! top marks!
We have just come back from a weekend in Belfast and loved it! We were staying at the Radisson SAS, (which we booked online so got a good deal). Got a bit lost coming into the city and ended back onto the M1, the directions on the hotel website of how to get there weren't great. But we got there, staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was lovely. It's a very cool modern hotel about five to ten minutes strolling distance from city hall and we would definitely recommend it. And if you get a map, don't worry how far things seem on it, EVERYTHING in the city centre is well within walking distance even for a taxi lover like me! Good city for shopping as all the shops are more or less concentrated around one area. Didn't hit any clubs as we were shattered from shopping all day but went to a few bars- favourite was the one attached to Porcelain/Ten Square. Tried to get into Porcelain for dinner but they don't take bookings so when we went in at quarter to eight they didn't have a table for two hours- we should have known better I suppose, it being Saturday night! Went to Skye Bar then for bar food which was gorgeous- great people-watching spot! All in all- will be back again soon- maybe for January sales!

... Maybe someday I'll be there looking back at Bushmills.
Thursday we go cross country to Sligo to see Uncle Des and Auntie Tess and cousins Mary and Ethna. No wifi is anticipated so we will be off grid a while. With the volatility in the stock market, not such a bad thing.
We are driving a 2015 VW Polo, think mini golf, and it's getting twice as good petrol kilometerage as our Forester which is good because fuel prices are double our ...
... walks around the very Irish-looking countryside and we even visited the caves where they film scenes of Game of Thrones in and on our walk we met Pat and Helena Crummey and they came back for tea and coffee, which was lovely.
The next day we stayed in Cushendun for a while longer and took another walk and then headed back to Belfast, where we had a family dinner that evening. We got nice and dressed up and went to a place called "Home" to eat, which had delicious food ...

... main road to Carlingford and all was good. We stopped at the Carlingford Arms Pub and had a great Irish lunch. I still cannot get over the size of the meals here. I had a seafood chowder served in a bread bowl and a spicy chicken curry served with rice and chips. The Irish love hot chips and curry sauce. I have to say, so do I. Of course this was washed down with a pint of Carlsberg, every ...
Off at 9 am to Belfast by Train. Mitch and Austin wanted to stay and sleep in. Off we went! 2 hour train to Belfast. More beautiful country. Sorry no posted pics as I never brought iPad. The titanic exhibit is huge and quite detailed. Easy 3 hours to check out....so many people! Ed is in awe! Found a very interesting pub ...
