The 10 best hotels in Belfast

Discover the top hotels in Belfast handpicked by local expert Ciara McQuillan.

Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland, is a city that truly encompasses a diverse blend of experiences. It offers a lot to any visitor, making it a sum of many fascinating parts. Exploring the city is a delight, and the accommodation options cater to all budgets, ensuring an equally exciting stay. Whether you seek luxurious lodgings, Bohemian bolt holes, or anything in between, Belfast boasts an impressive range of hotels. Here, I present to you my carefully selected list of the best hotels in Belfast.

1.

The Merchant Hotel

Address:

16 Skipper Street

Price:

$309-844/night

For a luxury hotel in Belfast, look no further than The Merchant Hotel – a five-star icon that once housed the headquarters of Ulster Bank. Renowned for its imposing Italianate, sandstone façade, it’s a place to both see and be seen and understood to be one of the best hotels in Belfast.
The 62 guestrooms are diverse in style from Art Deco to Victorian, while the selection of bar and restaurant facilities impresses. At the heart of the property, The Great Room is a formal restaurant in a stunning space with domed ceilings and an enviable chandelier. Alternatively, Bert’s Jazz Bar and Restaurant on the ground floor, offers bistro-style dining and jazz music seven nights a week.
The Cocktail Bar is another architectural beauty, serving vintage Champagne and cocktails. The destination spa and rooftop gym, with a sauna and hot tub overlooking the city, is the icing on the cake.

2.

Crowne Plaza Belfast

Address:

117 Milltown Road

Price:

$125-347/night

Located in Minnowburn, a short drive from Belfast city, the four-star Crowne Plaza Belfast is a recently refurbished 120-room property in the heart of the Lagan Valley Regional Park. The hotel is surrounded by an abundance of rivers, forests, and cycle paths and is perfect for spending time ambling around the local area.
The proximity to the city center means that you are within reach of everything Belfast offers, but I usually just succumb to relaxing and unwinding at the hotel’s impressive range of amenities. The spa and health club include an indoor swimming pool and fitness center with a range of treatments available.
Dining needs are catered for in The Green Room restaurant, while The River Bar Lounge & Bistro provides for all of your cocktail needs. Guest rooms are modern and bright with air conditioning, flat screen TVs, snuggly bathrobes, and most importantly – 24-hour room service.

3.

Bullitt Hotel

Address:

40a Church Lane

Price:

$65-334/night

Laid-back is the vibe you can expect at ultra-hip Bullitt Hotel. Just a short walk from the Cathedral Quarter, Bullitt is named after the movie of the same name starring Steve McQueen. With 74 rooms from dinky (aka small) to biggy (aka less small), rooms have everything you need and nothing you don’t – think king-size beds, rain showers, and flat-screen TVs.
There is even a “dog den” option if you enjoy bringing your pooch along. Meanwhile, social butterflies won’t be left behind with the bar and dining options within the hotel. Taylor and Clay is a lively grill room, Tetto is a rooftop restaurant and bar, while the Lobby and Courtyard Lounge is great for light bites. I loved Rattlebag Cocktail Bar; perfect for an intimate nightcap.
Bullitt hosts many eclectic music events, such as jazz and blues, lobby vinyl sessions, and weekend DJs. Always great fun, whatever your musical leanings.

4.

Ten Square Hotel

Address:

10 Donegal Square South

Price:

$147-1188/night

A centrally located four-star property, Ten Square is housed in a stunning Victorian building that dates from 1862. Once a linen warehouse, today it has transformed into a 131-room hotel right in the city. There are three room types: standard, deluxe, and executive, many with spectacular views over the city.
Rooms are classically styled with all mod cons. Groups will love the wow factor of the Vegas suite, which can sleep up to ten people – perfect for a girls (or boys) night, it also boasts an outdoor hot tub and acres of space for lounging.
Similarly, the Jaffe penthouse boasts a stunning roof terrace with views for miles. Food-wise, Josper’s Steakhouse is ideal for meat lovers, while The Loft bar has a decidedly “private club” feel with an impressive cocktail menu. On the ground floor, The Doffer Bar is a sport lover’s dream, showing every type of sporting fixture imaginable.

5.

Holiday Inn Belfast City Centre

Address:

40 Hope Street

Price:

$107-386/night

There was a lot I loved about the 250-room Holiday Inn Belfast City Centre. Its proximity to the city and the Great Victoria Street train station is one, the vast array of on-site amenities is another. Remote workers (or just those who need to get online) will appreciate the dedicated workspaces and business services.
Gym goers will be happy with the small but perfectly organized in-house gym. There is also an impressive range of accessible features throughout the hotel, including accessible guest rooms with emergency pull cords and grab bars, plus a selection of hearing and vision accessibility features and services.
Breakfast is served buffet-style, and kids get to stay and eat for free, making it ideal for solo travelers, couples, and families alike. The room service, 24-hour reception desk, and car rental desk are all subtle touches that make a big impact in this day and age.

6.

The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast

Address:

1-3 Great Victoria Street

Price:

$176-3412/night

The five-star Fitzwilliam Hotel is a tasteful and refined property, close to the Grand Opera House and Ulster Hall. With 146 guest rooms, The Fitzwilliam is considered to be the one of the best hotels in Belfast, and I couldn’t agree more. Perfect for an indulgent weekend getaway, I loved the range of experiences offered to guests.
These include cocktail masterclasses, murder mystery dinners, and “crafternoon” tea – an unusual take on the classic with craft beer – traditionalists will be glad to observe that the classic afternoon tea is also an option.
Other services that elevate The Fitzwilliam are the dog-friendly policy, the accessibility access, the plush guestrooms, and the on-site parking. The turndown service is a nice touch, and the suites have stunning glazed walls with expansive views over the city. The baby grand piano in the 1,300 sq. ft. penthouse suite is the stuff of dreams.

7.

Europa Hotel

Address:

Great Victoria Street

Price:

$87-1285/night

One of the best hotels in Belfast, The Europa exudes understated elegance and has a fascinating history. The location is ideal, just a short walk from the city, and the public spaces are both spacious and intimate. The 272-guest room property recently underwent phase one of a refurbishment project, which upgraded some of the guest rooms to include air conditioning, automated window blinds, new bathrooms, and updated interiors.
Beds from King Koil are ridiculously comfy, while The Titanic Suite is fit for a queen. The food in The Causerie Restaurant is delicious, and a nightcap in the Piano Bar to the backdrop of the resident pianist make for a memorable evening.
Other amenities might be somewhat limited, but it’s hard to care when you are staying so close to the city in such an iconic property. Plus, there is jazz in the Lobby Bar on Saturday afternoons. Need I say more?

8.

Hilton Belfast

Address:

4 Lanyon Place

Price:

$30-1091/night
