On a street lined by historic homes on the north side of the River Liffey
The Belvedere Hotel is situated on the north side of the River Liffey, an area of Dublin centered around the city's main thoroughfare, O'Connell Street. O'Connell Street is lined with historic buildings and monuments, as many important moments in Irish history took place in the area. There are several restaurants, hotels, shops, and two theaters (the Abbey Theatre and the Gate Theatre) in this neighborhood.
The Belvedere Hotel is a short walk from Parnell Square, where the Rotunda Hospital is located. The square is also home to the Garden of Remembrance, the Hugh Lane Gallery, and the Dublin Writers Museum.
The Belvedere Hotel offers good prices and a convenient location on the north side of the River Liffey. The hotel is within walking distance of shops, several sights, and a hospital (guests visiting patients receive a special rate). The 92 rooms are simple and basic, with some cheerful touches such as bright art on the walls and throw pillows on the beds. While some bathrooms are cramped and have odd configurations, others are surprisingly modern and appealing. All rooms are spacious for the price and most have wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. The hotel also offers larger family style rooms with several beds for travelers looking to stretch their budget. With electric kettles in the rooms and a bar and restaurant downstairs, the Belvedere is a solid budget pick.
