Accomodation in Liverpool
||With the prestigious
title of the European Capital of Culture 2008,
Liverpool has a lot to offer tourists and business visitors
So it will be no surprise to learn that along with its
architecture and famous names, the city also has a wealth
of accommodation on offer that will make your stay a very
pleasant one indeed.
If you feel like splashing out and sampling the luxury usually associated with visiting celebrities, then why
not book a room at one Liverpool’s top hotels. Among
the best is the Marriott Liverpool [map] in heart of the city centre, which has become a firm favourite
amongst visiting pop stars and Hollywood actors. In addition
to the 24-hour room service and parking, this exquisitely
built modern hotel also boasts a swimming pool, sauna,
whirlpool and a leisure club so guests can relax in style.
Another famous hotel that takes pride of place on the
docklands is the Thistle Hotel [map],
which is located close to the famous Royal Liver Buildings.
This magnificent ship-shaped hotel boasts the usual leisure
facilities along with unique Beatles-themed short breaks and weekend packages.
If it’s a swanky hotel chain that you’re after
then the Britannia Adelphi [map],
which is located close to Lime Street Station, is also
worth checking out. Built in the early 1900's, it became
known as one of the greatest hotels in the world and has
been featured in a BBC documentary.
For cheaper yet comfortable accommodation, particularly
for those sampling Liverpool’s nightlife, the Ibis
Hotel [map] is a good place to stay. This purpose built hotel can
be found on the waterfront opposite the historic Albert
Dock, and offers a 24-hour service, including a manned
reception, phone and fax, and snacks as required.
In contrast to the deluxe hotels on offer in the city,
you’ll also find a variety of budget
accommodation including the International Youth
Hostel and university flats.
Although the student apartments are only available during
the summer months, Liverpool John Moores and Hope universities provide basic, clean accommodation for travellers
on a budget.
The International Youth Hostel [map] is a relatively new addition to the city and provides
rooms with two, three or six beds instead of the usual
Liverpool also has an array of well-priced B&Bs and guesthouses, including
the Blenheim Guesthouse [map],
which was home to former Beatles’ bass player Stuart
Sutcliffe in the 1960s.
If you’re looking for self-catering
accommodation then you won’t be disappointed
in Liverpool, as there are a range of apartments available
on short-term leases, including the prestigious Acrefield
House [map] in Woolton.
For business visitors or those constantly on the move,
then the Travel Inns at Huyton and West Derby on
the outskirts of the city centre could be right up your
street. These purpose-built lodges offer low cost accommodation
and are situated near to the motorway network.
