The Farset International Hotel is not designed to meet all of your hotelling needs. It's designed to be simple and affordable; and it achieves that. Primarily attracting a seminar/work clientele this hotel is situated on the periphery of West Belfast. But don't let that discourage you - in a city the size of Belfast 'periphery' means a £5 taxi ride to the city centre, a 15 minute bus ride or a 45 min stroll. Nowhere is ever far in Belfast and you'd do well to remember that when visiting. At competitive prices, what you pay for in taxis, buses and time from the Farset to the city centre you save in hotel costs. There's no expensive add-ons, you cant while away the hours at the bar, there won't be any expensive Spa treatments... just a quiet place to rest your head. Rooms are simple and clean, the service is friendly and the views are simply the BEST of any hotel in Belfast... hands down. Make sure you get a South facing room overlooking the small lake in front of the hotel and you'll be treated to a great panorama across the city as far as Scrabo Tower and the Hollywood Hills. Few if any hotels in Belfast offer as good a view. If you're interested in the troubled history of Belfast you couldn't pick a better base... while there is plenty of the history of the troubles in and around the city centre the vast majority is actually to be found in the estates and suburban streets surrounding the city. From here you are a 3 min walk to the longest unbroken peace line in Northern Ireland (Springmartin), containing over a million bricks and made famous by a documentary of the same name, the building of which commenced on the day of an IRA ceasefire. 5 minutes walk takes you down to Lanark Way, the Falls/Shankhill Peace Lines, The Falls Road, Ballymurphy and on into the Belfast Hills of White and Black Mountain (stunning views and a must for anybody). All of these areas are within immediate walking distance of the hotel, providing history, murals, local tales and characters in abundance. So do yourself a favour, take a night or 2 to stay up around the Farset, enjoy the incredible views, pack your own wine/beers/scrabble and just relax... for these prices you really shouldn't complain.
