When travelling, it’s always good to find good accommodation. Here is information on budget travel in Belfast.
Nobody wants to stay in a hotel that hasn’t been cleaned, or a place that feels dangerous. And on my travels, that has happened. Maybe I’ll write about that time in London.
What to consider for budget travel…
Another thing to consider when booking accommodation whilst travelling is budget. It’s great if you have a big budget, and can book somewhere lavish, like a house away from home. But most of us want somewhere to spend the night, that’s clean and comfortable, and a base before we go out and explore the area we’re in.
I booked into EasyHotel Belfast for my stay in Northern Ireland. It was an affordable option for a weekend away.
What’s good about EasyHotel?
The great thing about EasyHotel is the price. Rooms start at £46 per night. That’s a great price, especially for someone travelling on a budget.
If size doesn’t matter – ahem – then opt for the cheaper room, with a double bed and a sleek bathroom compacted together. Or, go for a larger room, either with twin bedrooms, or even a family bedroom, if you’re feeling cheeky.
The smaller rooms are rather compact. That isn’t a bad thing, of course. A comfortable double bed and a bathroom supplied with soap is a great base. There’s a TV, and you may even have a view through your wide window, which lets in natural light.
The trademark orange is present in the hotel, from the strip of fabric on the bed, to the immobile clothes hangers on the wall.
How did it go?
My stay at Easy Hotel was very good. I was able to check in early – with a fee of £10 – which is was great. Especially because I landed in Belfast at 8am. It meant I could leave my bags, freshen up, and then get out exploring, without worrying about when I had to check in, or struggling to carry heavy bags.
The staff were very friendly, and they helped with any requests I had, such as a late check out and providing a ironing board and hair dryer.
The EasyHotel in Belfast was attached to a coffee shop, so the morning I was well equipped with my caffeine. I’m not sure if other EasyHotels offer this service, too.
All in all, this was a great hotel to stay at, with a great central location, perfect for exploring wider Belfast.
I will definitely stay with EasyHotel again!
