Historical Traveller Reviews of Malmaison Hotel

Nice but with a few negatives

from Boss_Hogg
I stayed last year and wrote a review saying the hotel was very pleasant but the restaurant was so dark you struggled to find the knife and fork. This has been addressed and the restaurant hasn't suffered with more light. If you are travelling by car then the hotel is a waste of time as the nearest car park is a 10 minute walk and is part of the Hilton complex. So you may as well have saved aching shoulders and stayed at the Hilton. Also the rooms haven't been particularly well thought out. They have the classic Mal mood, which is very attractive, but to fix the DVD (which is a pleasant extra but apparently often goes wrong) the staff need to dismantle part of the wall. Also there were plug sockets immediately next to the sink and it was clear from the marks that water splashed them regularly. It is a nice hotel and I shouldn't moan but I would like to leave without being electrocuted!

Mal content

from DinnyKnow
My wife and I stayed one night in Malmasion Belfast last weekend and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The hotel is only a five minute walk to the city centre (city hall ) and even less to the Cathederal Quater. The decor is very dark and gothic which creates a sense of adventure during your stay.
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 Bien

from lancashirethorn
The Mal Maison Belfast ....

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.

Enjoy ....

Nice rooms if a bit dark - biggest disappointment ? Breakfast

from Arcadia31
Spent one night here with my husband in March 2005.

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
I have stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend on several occasions. It really is our favourite. The perfect place to spend some time with someone special. We are always made to feel more than welcome. The staff couldn’t do enough for you. The location is perfect for shopping, clubbing and seeing the sights of Belfast. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. I have never found the hotel gloomy or dark ... and certainly have no trouble reading my menu in the restaurant

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
We stayed in Malmaison in Belfast for 2 nights in September, and generally it was fantastic, but there were a few niggles...

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 Employees

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently stayed in the beautiful, new Malmaison Hotel in Belfast,Northern Ireland as it was conveniently located close to the ferry terminal and downtown areas. In our rush to catch the ferry on time we accidentally left our valuables and travel documents in the safe in our Malmaison room. I was absolutely amazed and the genuine concern and professional followthrough exhibited by the employees at this nice hotel. After several phone calls back and forth, and tedious trips to the Royal Mail Post Office by the hotel employee, we gratefully received our valuable envelope. Her caring and compassion was "beyond the pale" and seemed to be representative of the type of people this hotel employs.

Quality as usual

from Mr_stranger
Pretentious...yes. But it's the way Malmaison do it that I love.

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
We've stayed here twice now and loved every minute. Other people here have described it as dull or gloomy, but to us it is alluring and inviting. The low lights, the sumptuous black and red decor welcome you in to an intimate and friendly hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the beds exceedingly comfortable. The bathrooms are well stocked and the showers are pure bliss. The food in the restaurant is excellent, both in evening for dinner and the extensive breakfast menu. The room service is execellent too - the chocolate fondue with fresh fruit and home made marshmallow is highly recommended! The bar again is intimate and relaxing, and the price of drinks is insignificant is such surroundings.

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
We stayed here for a night as part of a girl's weekend in mid-May. We booked it after seeing reviews and location. The hotel was very nicely decorated and gothic! The rooms are very well serviced in terms of facilities and little extras such as full ironing board, bathroom tolietries (including cotton buds and nail scissors), DVD player and flat screen TV. We had booked 1 twin and 1 triple but the triple had a camp bed in it which was not the best for an adult but we were not charged extra for it. The hotel bar is nicely decorated although again a little dark in the daytime. The location was good in that you could walk everywhere and service was friendly. I would stay here again.

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.
