Historical Traveller Reviews of Malmaison Hotel
Nice but with a few negativesfrom Boss_Hogg
Mal contentfrom DinnyKnow
We didn't eat in the hotel brasserie but the menu looked lovely and the continental breakfast in bed was a great start to a Sunday morning.
Staff were helpful and friendly and the barpersons were very knowledgeable about the wines and cocktails.
A couple of small minus points only. The drinks were expensive for Belfast and the closet secure overnight parking was about a ten minute walk. Apart from that the hotel was great and I will certainly use it again.
Mal Maison ..... Tres Bienfrom lancashirethorn
Just stayed there last weekend. This hotel fits nicely into a city which is becoming "groovier" by the week, with fantastic restaurants and bars.
The hotel is plush and has an excellent boutique style scheme running throughout. The open plan and informal reception area is welcoming and after a two second check-in it was off up to the room - in the velvet lift. (The ceiling is cushioned!)
The room was clean, comfortable, fashionable and good enough to stay in for practically the whole weekend. The flat screen TV, DVD, cool bathroom, and huge furniture, were great.
The toiletries could last a week rather than the average "use-once" kit.
The bar is a little expensive, but hey, its a weekend away, so 8 pounds for a mojito (beautiful) will just pass.
Overall, excellent and worth the money.
Nice rooms if a bit dark - biggest disappointment ? Breakfastfrom Arcadia31
I would describe the hotel as plush and moody with lots of velvet drapes and heavy fabrics. Housed in an old grain store the building itself looks great. Location pretty good as its 2 minutes away from the city centre shops, pubs and restaurants.
The room was large and the fixtures and fittings excellent with a huge bed.
At night the place looks particularly good but in the morning it does feel a tad subterranean!
Breakfast would be my biggest gripe and herein lies the problem,I think, with hotel chains. In Belfast I would have expected a generous 'Ulster Fry' ( a regional speciality!!) but no we got the English version - minimalist with none of our gorgeous regional breads. The breakfast room itself was dark so much so that our table was lit with an overhanging light - it felt like 11pm.
I would recommend it but I think 10 Square is a better option for visitors to the city
Love it!from Misschic
If I had to find faults it would be the lack of parking facilities, and that they only serve continental breakfast in your room. I would recommend making the effort to head down to the restaurant for breakfast - the only problem is what to have - the menu is excellent.
Generally great but...from jenifa
The positives: the decor is amazing both in the hotel generally and in the rooms themselves - it may not be to everyone's taste, but we thought it was great, really different. It is dark, though once you're inside you don't notice. The rooms are a good size, especially considering they have a huge king size bed. There is a flat screen tv, DVD player, mini bar (with reasonable prices), great bathroom. The toiletries are a good size - not the tiny things you usually get. The bar is great - the prices are London prices so if that doesn't bother you, you should be ok. The staff are absolutely delightful - really friendly and helpful. I asked for a cocktail that wasn't on the menu, and they just whipped it up there and then. Excellent.
The room can be quite noisy (from street noise, outside generator etc), even though we were on the 4th floor. There was also no air conditioning, so the room got quite stuffy. The water pressure in the bathroom was quite variable - at one point the shower went off completely for a moment. Also, something in the bathroom made a really annoying noise all night - though we worked out if you take the key card out of the slot by the door the light will go off in the bathroom and the noise will stop. (You'll need to put it back in before you can get the lights on though...). The biggest problem though was the restaurant - whilst the food was nice, and service great, the menu was limited, and the food (particularly the breakfasts) were really overpriced.
So all in all I would definitely go back again - but I would eat somewhere else.
It's worth popping into the bar just for a drink, even if you don't stay.
And definitely visit the toilets off the bar whilst you're there :)
Malmaison- Unsurpassed, Professional Employeesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Quality as usualfrom Mr_stranger
Belfast isn't a big tourist city (yet) so this hotel isn't busy, but it's as atmospheric and as well decorated as the Malmaison in The Mailbox in Birmingham, which is my absolute favourite.
Room was excellent, breakfast well cooked and presented, and the staff were helpful.
It's situated right next to the Laganside bus station, from which you can go anywhere.
I definatly recommend this hotel.
Everything is just perfect!from thunderball
There is so much more I could say but I'll leave for you to find out. Overall its suffice to say we love the place and would book a suite every weekend if only my boss would give me a substantial payrise!
Dark and interesting!from DPOR
Top Local Tips for Belfast
City Hall Take time out for a free guided tour around the opulent 1906 City Hall. it takes about an hour and is well worth the time out of your trip. Civic buildings will never be built like this again! Follow it up with a pint or two of Guinness in the Crown Liquor Palace opposite the Europa Hotel. Both buildings are amazing.
Great dining scene There are some great restaurants in Belfast - check out their lucnh deals, a fraction of the price of evening and food just as good. Get a late table at 2/3 ish and make it the early start to the evening.Particularly recomend James Street South (3 courses £15.50) best food currently in Belfast and off the tourist scene, and Shu (3 courses anout £13) - but go al a carte - best steak in Ireland ! And tarte au citron to die for...
Good food and a movie I suggest a meal in La Tasca in the Odyssey as there is a special offer on at the moment, all you can eat for a tenner Sunday to Thursday 5.30pm to 8.00pm, followed by a movie in a VIP suite in Storm cinema.
