How to Get There
From check-in to check-out our stay was seamless! The Hope Street Hotel exceeded our expectations, the cleanliness, upkeep and quality of our room was first class. The bed was SO comfortable and the bath huge with the added bonus of a little outside view! Every member of staff was helpful, pleasant and personable which is a pretty rare find. Location is great and only a 5-10minute walk to the shops and bars. It made for a perfect last minute night away and we would 100% love to return in the future and highly recommend to anyone!
Stayed two nights, very comfortable bed, room good size. Breakfast very good and it’s in a good location opposite Philharmonic Hall and easy walking distance between the two cathedrals. It took us 25 mins to walk fairly briskly down to the Pierhead and 35 mins to walk back uphill at a slower pace, it’s very close to the stop for the city hop on and off bus. Very helpful and friendly staff. They have building work ongoing which starts at 8 am till 5 pm so not too much of a bother as most people are out during the day but expect to see scaffolding on part of the front and back at the moment.. Infact we were at the back and our room looked right out on it but apart from keeping the blind down from 8 am while we dressed it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience especially if you had the TV on. So if you want to have a short course in roofing ask for room 218.as we could watch the roofers from our window. Paid parking nearby, we used the Cathedral for £10 for 24 hours at the hotels special rate, check the hotel website for details.
The only reason I withheld one star was that I thought this rather expensive at £219.50 for room and breakfast (parking would have been another £12) but it is very central and pleasant, with wonderfully luxuriously comfortable beds and it was a Saturday night, five minutes walk from a close friend’s wedding venue.
Whether one regards it as a bonus or more of an inconvenience, this is where the Liverpool FC team stay the night before a home match, which in practice means that the drop off parking in front of the hotel is suspended, there is a small amount of disruption when the team are being walked though reception to their coach and there are the more dedicated fans hanging around outside, wanting to see their heroes.
There also seem to be quite a few ‘down on their luck’ people near the entrance asking for money, though only politely that I saw, not in a threatening way.
Breakfast was nice, but so it should be at £18, less if booked in advance, and rather strangely, where one could help oneself to cold cereals, fresh fruit, fruit juice etc to start, one then had to choose one ‘main’ - eggs benedict, full cooked breakfast, with or without meat, cold continental etc, one of these ‘main’ options was porridge, which seemed odd. So you can expect a lovely stay, especially if you want to gawp at some footballers, but your wallet will be a little lighter,so grit your teeth and just enjoy the experience.
I would like to start this review by saying what great people this hotel employs. From reception to dining and all inbetween the staff are friendly and welcoming and got our short stay off to a great start.
We had booked a deluxe kingsize which has all of the amenities that you would expect. The only thing that we weren't expecting the next morning were the builders outside our bedroom window - We were on the fourth floor!
The hotel is expanding, and for this to happen builders are required but I think we should been advised that this may happen or, not put in that room I the first place! Our room number was 417 so be advised!
We didn't ask to move as it would have been hassle for one night and my point goes back to, if there's a better room, why not offer that in the first place? We English don't like making a fuss!!
That aside, the breakfast is lovely, good menu choice. The hotel is well situated just outside of the City but only a 15 minute walk and it has secure parking.
We would go back but ask for a room at the front.
Lovely location. Friendly considerate staff who can't do enough for you. The bedroom is a lovely size and the bed was so comfortable best bed I think I have slept in in a hotel.
There is a lot of wood everywhere which isn't to my taste but everything about the hotel is excellent we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
