Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveS1957 A great place to stay in Belfast
We booked Holiday Inn Express in Belfast because we had already enjoyed a break at Holiday Inn Express in Newcastle. We were not disappointed!
The hotel on University Street is very conveniently situated, close to the University, and handy for the restaurants of Botanic Avenue and also Botanic railway station.
The room was clean and very comfortable, also very quiet despite our room facing on to the fairly busy street. The staff were excellent, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The breakfast choices were plentiful, and the food was very good quality. This hotel also offers evening meals if they're wanted, but we ate out.
In short, I don't think there is a better option in this price range, and I doubt if you could have better if you paid more, unless you insist on having your bags carried and your car parked by the staff.
We will definitely be using this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MarkA56 Quiet location and great staff
I stayed here for a couple of nights with my family and was looked after very well. Helpful staff and nothing was too much bother to them. Belfast is a large place and so was the room. A great breakfast set us up for a great visit. Will use this hotel again due to it's quiet location and parking looked to be sorted out as well. Will bring the car next time to see much more of Northern Ireland.
Many thanks again.

Have stayed 5 times whilst visiting my son who studies at Queen's. The accommodation is as expected: clean, warm, quiet , comfortable. Breakfast very good. The location is great. What makes the difference are the fantastic employees. Without exception they have always gone the extra mile be it phoning for a cab, finding out information or looking after luggage. My offers to pay for my son's breakfast were also turned down- a nice touch. Oh and free wifi throughout is great.

It was our first visit to Belfast. We were there for a wedding. We have no complaints whatsoever of the hotel. Everything was very good including the breakfast included in the price. We walked downtown several times and it only took about 15 minutes. We felt very safe in the area. We even walked along the river from Belfast Central Train Station, it was a very nice walk. The front desk called cabs for us when we needed them and they were there within 5 minutes. All the staff were very informative and friendly. If we go back to Belfast we would definitely stay there again and we would recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by masda08 A good experience
I arrived with my 17 year old son at about 9pm on a Friday evening. The hotel was about 20 minute walk from the city centre and has a very welcoming exterior.
The check in process was really quick and the desk staff were really friendly and welcoming.
The twin room itself was spacious and really clean, the shower is excellent (always important!). Because the hotel is surrounded by residential houses there was no noise from outside (our room was at the back). My only negative point is that the extractor fan is a little grimy with long-term use.
The breakfast area is a little small for tired wandering people, but the selection of food is excellent and there were always staff around clearing tables and ensuring food was kept topped up and available.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CMOS3456 Lovely staff - great stay
A great all rounder but the bed was too soft for my cheeky old back and my room key kept resetting and locking us out of the room. Other than that, Thank you for making us very welcome

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jo Dub great compact rooms
The location of the hotel was brilliant - near the Botanic Gardens, thrift shops esp. Oxfam bookshop and a great Chinese restaurant in the area serving dim sum. We had two adjoining rooms. they were warm, unfussy and clean. there were sofa beds for the kids.
Breakfast could be improved with more healthy choices. The TV switched on in the breakfast area was a nuisance and unnecessary as there were TV sets in the rooms.
Car parking facilities were convenient and staff were friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RedLeg319 Great Location
During a recent vacation to Belfast we stayed at the HIE Belfast City - Queen's Quarter. I'll start with the Pros. It was within walking distance of most of the tourist areas. It had a great breakfast, the room was clean and the staff were also very good. Cons. The beds were horrible. I felt like I was staying in a hostel with cots to sleep in. Also the walls were very thin. I could hear the children in the next room running around and jumping on things for half the night. With better beds this hotel would definitely be a place I would stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KNM223 we just keep coming back!
The staff are so helpful, the hotel is lovely and comfortable. It's situated just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre to enable you to relax.
The thing we enjoyed most was that breakfast is served until midday, this means you really can have a lie in when you're on holiday!

My first Christmas away and fortunate enough to stay here. A lovely room, quiet and peaceful, clean and spacious. A little south of the city centre - approx 20 minute walk - but away from any hustle and bustle. Fantastic value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Martin1 Review
First I want to say Dagmara at the front desk was very friendly and helpful, Thanks. The breakfast was very good, the free parking was a plus and the price was the lowest Holiday Inn property available.
I took a chance on this booking because we got into town late but like other reviews stated, the hotel guests seem to be loud. We had room doors slamming through the night and people laughing and running down the hall. The bed was probably one of the worst I have ever slept on and I have stayed in lots of Holiday Inn Expresses. I know the Mgmt. cannot do much about loud guests letting their doors slam but they need to invest in some new beds. We stayed 1 night and went to another hotel for the next 2 nights. If you don't mind the noise and beds then this Express may be good for you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Breege fantastic stay.
We had a fantastic stay here, the only problem we had was with the food in the evening. We ordered a Pizza for my son, it looked like the normal frozen Pizza, but it was so overcooked he could not eat it, the staff were great and explained that they were using agency staff.
The hotel itself was everything we needed and more, the room was large, there was free Wifi which pleased our son very much.
The hotel breakfast was first class and the staff were helpful and pleasant. I would highly recommend this hotel to any type of guest.

Unarguably the best budget hotel I have ever been. Very economical, top comfort level, very friendly / dedicated staff, clean rooms / bath and above all free break fast (yummy..!), free parking (secure..!) and free wifi (high speed..!). Can't ask for more !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Noneoftheabove Thin walls
I have stayed at this hotel before and thought the hotel was reasonably good.
This time after 2 nights I asked to be moved due to a noisy foreign family in the next room with a whailing kid that would not keep quiet.
The walls seem paper thin and you could not get an early sleep due to being kept awake until midnight.
The ironony being that upon arrival and checking in, I had to sign a consent form to keep quiet and consider other hotel users....!.
One rule for some while the rest of us suffer.

Ideally located for Queens University area with cafes and restaurants nearby. 25 minute level walk to city centre but easy access to trains and buses. Train station a few minutes away links direct to Titanic quarter and to Cultra where Folk and transport museums are located. Good free breakfast included. Friendly staff. Free wifi.

Wonderful Hotel for a weekend break. All the staff I deal with were exceptional.
I would have preferred a drawer or two or some shelving. As the storage space was very limited in our double room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TPAPT Mixed bag
This property is in a great location in the vibrant Queens Quarter near the university however it is a mixed bag to stay here. The staff was great, very friendly and professional and the breakfast was clearly above average. That being said the property is getting quite worn and threadbare and the beds and pillows were very very uncomfortable and the linens worn out. If you are looking to stay on a tight budget within easy walking district of the campus and restaurants then it is just OK but again the bedding comfort level are definitely a detractor. We loved the area but will not choose this property again unless they get a little bit of a make over.
