I am looking for a five star hotel in Belfast. Which is the best five star hotel in Belfast?
Thank you for the question. Belfast is a quite easy city to write about, because while there are almost 40 five star hotels in Prague, Belfast only has two, maximum three. The reason we say two, or three, is that there is a third option which is Victoria Apartments, a bit outside the city center, so we will not really take that into consideration in this post. So, the two hotels to choose between is Hilton Belfast and The Merchant Hotel.
Hilton Belfast or The Merchant hotel?
Hilton Belfast is very central, only a few minutes from the center of Belfast. It looks towards the Logan river, and if you come for a concert in the Odyssey Arena that venue is only 15 minutes away on foot. Hilton takes quite a high charge for using the wireless Internet, so be aware of that as you do your booking. The hotel also has a nice restaurant, a cocktail bar and a fitness center on the inside.
The Merchant Hotel
The Merchant Hotel has for a long time been known to be one of the best hotels in all of the United Kingdom. It has a rooftop gym, it has SPA facilities, it has free wireless Internet, and a beautiful interior, especially the big dining hall. It is located very close to the Albert Memorial Clock, meaning that it only takes a few minutes and you are there in the busy shopping streets of Belfast.
If we had to make a decision, we would for sure go for The Merchant Hotel in Belfast. It simply is better than Hilton, it has more class, it has cooler services available, and it simply is one of the best hotels in all of the United Kingdom. But, if you find Hilton to be much cheaper, then that is of course a splendid choice still, so you should not feel sad if you end up staying in Hilton instead of The Merchant Hotel, and thus saving a lot of money.
