Fodor's Expert Review Ten Square

10 Donegall Sq. S, Belfast, Co. Down, BT1 5JD, Northern Ireland

You don't get much more downtown or contemporary than this fashionable boutique hotel (a former post office) right behind City Hall, especially after a £1.5 million overhaul added 70 bedrooms and modernized all rooms with smart technology. A Neoclassical facade hides a serene interior with Jospers Grill Room serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Jospers was extended and renovated in 2019 and seats up to 150, and the new Doffer bar and elegant Linen Lounge was added next door. It's not uncommon to see trendy young office workers hanging out here after work on Friday when there is frequently a live band playing. The bedrooms are minimalist-Asian in style—with king-size beds topped with white duvets, and soft armchairs to sink into. There's a Time for Tourists two-night special; lovers should opt for the Date Night package that offers a rose-petal turndown, chilled champagne, chocolate truffles, and a three-course meal in Jospers (£185). It also offers other packages including tickets to sightseeing taxi tours of some leading visitor attractions.
