    Comfortable hotel, next to bus station

    by

    My friend and I stayed at Days Hotel Belfast for one night during a weekend visit to Belfast in July 2008.

    This large hotel (the largest in Northern Ireland, with 250 guest rooms) can be booked directly or can be booked via numerous online booking agencies. I priced the hotel up on dozens of websites before booking and, at that time, the cheapest rate was to be found on www.skoosh.com. I paid 69 GBP per night for a twin room with breakfast included.

    Location

    Days Hotel is located on Hope Street in Belfast City Centre. It is conveniently located practically next door to the Europa Bus Station. It took us less than 2 minutes to walk from the station to the hotel, via the station’s car park, when we arrived at Europa Bus Station on the bus from the airport.

    The hotel is located about 5 minutes walking time from the city’s famous Crown Liquor Saloon (and other pubs and restaurants), 10 minutes from the City Hall and the pedestrianised shopping streets and 15 minutes from the banks of the River Lagan.

    Bedroom

    Our twin room was typical of those found in chain hotels throughout the UK and Europe. It was clean, comfortable, functional, and contained all the basic amenities that you would require for a short stay.

    The room had two beds, a TV, a large wardrobe, coffee and tea making facilities, a desk, a couple of chairs, a large wall mirror, a telephone, bedside cabinets and lamps.

    The en-suite shower room was spotlessly clean and contained a reasonably sized walk-in shower, washbasin, toilet and plenty of fresh towels.

    Breakfast

    The breakfast buffet was served in the hotel’s large ground floor restaurant and was absolutely superb!

    Choose from a selection of fruit and yoghurts, bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, baked beans, toast, potato bread, soda bread, fruit juices, tea and coffee. You can eat as much as you like and the dishes are constantly topped up so that the food is always piping hot.

    If your room rate does not include breakfast, the cooked breakfast buffet costs an additional 8.95 GBP per person per day, while a continental breakfast costs 5.95 GBP. Breakfast is served between 6:30am and 10:00am on weekdays and between 7:00am and 11:00am at weekends.

    General

    The ground floor of the hotel contains a 24 hour reception desk (complete with lots of information and brochures for booking excursions) and a large restaurant and bar area.

    There is an onsite car park and conferencing facilities for business travellers.

    The hotel has rooms on 8 or 9 floors, and has a handful of lifts.

    A good value hotel, with comfortable rooms, a great breakfast and a convenient location right next to the bus station. Recommended!

    Directions: Located on Hope Street, right next to the Europa Bus Station. Approximately 10 minutes walk to the pedestrianised city centre shopping areas.

    Good location, good value

    by

    The Days Hotel has a good location just a few minutes walk from the Europa Bus station where the Airport Express buses drop off - just walk through the station and you’ll see the hotel as you exit. It’s also just 5-10 minutes walk from the City Hall and the central shopping and tourist areas. I’ve used the Days chain before, they are a US company with a number of hotels in the UK. It’s essentially a budget operating model with small but comfortable rooms. What I like best about the rooms are the large walk in showers - much better than trying to cram yourself into a miniscule Travelodge cubicle. A tea & coffee tray was provided plus biscuits. TV with pay per view movies and what looked like Nintendo games. WiFi available in rooms plus two Internet connections in the lobby, £1 for 10 minutes. There is no room service offered but service in the bar and restaurant is friendly and efficient. The cooked breakfast buffet has a good selection and is an extra £8.95 if not included in the room rate.

    Directions: At the bottom of Great Victoria Street near the Europa Bus and Train Stations

    Cheap and cheerful

    by

    One of Belfast's cheapest hotels, yet only 100m from one of Belfast's most expensive, the Europa. Clean and well serviced, it must be a serious contender for families and those on a budget

    Unique Quality: Look out for their great multi night offers

No late drinks here

by A TripAdvisor Member

Hotel centrally located, no real problem with Hotel but dont expect a late night drink even if you are a resident, bar shut at 1.30am. Security men at
front door were intimidating and rude. Ok stay but would think twice before returning.

Give it a Miss!

This hotel is the worst place I've ever stayed at. It really lets Belfast down, and were I a new visitor to the city, it could well put me off for life. I travelled there with my elderly mother, sisters and teenage daughter and it was an absolute nightmare.
The first thing you need to know is that the address is misleading - it is actually on 'Sandy Row' and the views from the windows look out onto waste ground with shreds of Union Jacks fluttering in the breeze, or to the front the Sandy Row, with the red, white and blue kerb stones and more tattered Union flags. Our car (with a Dublin number plate) was vandalized, and the staff were not concerned and showed no interest in our fear of the hostility, until we contacted our tour operators. The grounds and reception were vulnerable to intruders and I felt more like Orla Guerrin filing a report from the West Bank, than a London Tourist visiting this wonderful city of culture and heritage!We were not as naive to imagine that our trip would be trouble-free, of course some rumblings of the troubled past would still exist, however, it was irresponsible of the hotel not to provide the real address to allow tourists to make an informed decision.
We cut short our stay and headed out of town, relatives had informed us that there was some problems occurring and there were even reports in the local paper about the trouble that they'd suffered (evidence of broken windows was clear and the downstairs and reception windows had reinforced plastic sheeting over them). The landing window on the 11th floor had a broken catch, and had a child leaned against it, there could have been a disaster. The staff were rather blase when we reported it!

Our stay at this hotel spoilt our first trip to Belfast in over 20 years. I am pleased to say that we have since returned to the City staying elsewhere and can't wait to go again: but that's another review!

World Irish Dancing Championships hostel

by A TripAdvisor Member

not particularly cheap and a bit impersonal and cheaply built hotel that had the atmosphere of a hostel because of it being nearly full of families going to the World Irish Dancing Championships. it is on the edge of a pretty rough area, but also going the other way on the edge of the city centre, right by the Europa Hotel and bus centre and very convenient. i wouldn't stay again. service was poor and it just wasn't a great place to be.

handy for city centre

by TripAdvisor Member david.russell

handy for city centre comfortable rooms pleasant public areas breakfast ok service fine. ok its not 5 star but doesnt claim to be. 5 mins to bars restaurants. ok its close to sandy row which could be a bit iffy but sticjk to the city centre and the main roads like you would in any big city and you'll be safe enough. i ve stayed here on 2 occasions and felt perectly safe. It is Belfast, buts its 2006 not 1986 its a fine city not a war zone any more go and enjoy.

Not bad at all

by A TripAdvisor Member

OK, so I wouldn't want to spend a week here with my family (Hey - this is Belfast after all).

But if you want a clean, modern and fairly central hotel with all the usual facilities and reasonably sized rooms for a night or two, this place is ideal. Bathroom was clean and with nice large soft bath sheets, which makes a change from most places I've stayed in. I found the staff helpful and polite, restaurant food was fine and the breakfast buffet was great (can't understand some of the previous postings on this site - maybe it's under new management now).

Some people may be put off by the Loyalist mural on a building across the road, but that's just part of a complex but interesting history of this city. Easy walk into the centre of the city (5 minutes), and a pleasant one at that. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfectly situated and nice- what were people expecting? the ritz...

by TripAdvisor Member JafnGoff

Firstly can I thank every negative reviewer for terrifying my other half prior to getting to Belfast. The hotel itself is cleaned to a high standard and all the staff were extremely friendly- even letting us leave our cases there while we spent our last available hours looking around City Hall. The breakfasts were great- and my boyfriend was a big fan of the bathroom in our room (he's big on hygiene!!). Days is literally five minutes away from anything just around the corner is a brilliant restaurant, the bus depot is opposite which can take you anywhere (including Belfast International Airport). The City Hall, St Annes Cathedral and pretty much all bars and restaurants are within walking distance and for the lazy amongst us the bus stops in Donegall Sq are five minutes away. We had a brilliant few days staying at the Days hotel the room was bigger than expected and had everthing you would need. If your expecting luxury stay at the Europa etc but if you want an enjoyable stay thats well worth the price stay at Days. As for it being in a rough area the murals are everywhere (its part of Belfasts history) and noone should feel intimidated by the one opposite the hotel.

Good 3 star hotel in convenient location

by TripAdvisor Member MegW

Great 3 star hotel located very close to the Europa bus centre which was very handy for people arriving by bus (we arrived on a bus from international airport). it was less than a 5 mins walk.

We arrived early Sat am and were able to check in straight away which was an added bonus. Room was a reasonable size with nice comfy bed. The bathroom had a good sized walk in shower (only complaint would be that a small amount of grouting needed a bit of work). The shower had pressure and temperature controls which was good.

Unfortunately we had an interconnecting room (ROOM 526) and on a couple of occasions I could hear the people next door talking.

Breakfast was pretty substantial, choice of cereals followed by hot breakfast (help yourself!) - sausages, bacon, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, potato cakes, toast. The only problem was the scrambled eggs were a bit watery but you could order fried or boiled eggs anyway (which I prefer). Fruit juice wasn't the best but all in all I was quite impressed - it filled me up for hours.
