Fodor's Expert Review Dukes at Queens
65–67 University St., Belfast, Co. Down, BT7 1HL, Northern Ireland
Although retaining its distinguished redbrick Victorian facade, the inside of this handsome hotel on bohemian Botanic Avenue has been revamped in a cool contemporary style. Chic, modern guest rooms come in varying sizes and are popular both with weekenders and the smart business set. Villeroy & Boch bathrooms add bliss with drench showers, while swank and comfy Rolf Benz swivel armchairs are added bonuses. The hotel's location is perfect: Queen's University and the Botanic Gardens are a five-minute stroll away, and if you want to eat out you can wander the leafy streets and choose from Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Italian, and Irish restaurants.
