New Places to Stay
Liverpool often secures a place in many ‘world’s best city’ lists, effectively helping to boost our profile to global travellers. Who doesn’t want to visit a world famous, cultural city with a great heritage and friendly people?
But after a full day of taking in Liverpool’s attractions, tourists need to put their feet up, perhaps slip into one of those fluffy towel robes, order room service, take a splash in the pool or bath, or maybe just get their head down. Whatever it is, Liverpool can’t be a great city for visitors without great hotels and accommodation to match.
High-end or budget, standard or spectacular, quirky or luxurious, themed or comfortably familiar, Liverpool’s hotels offer rooms to tempt all travellers. Here we’ve rounded up five new remarkable Liverpool hotels that we wouldn’t mind staying at tonight.
It’s easy to romanticise hostels. Tiny, sparsely decorated rooms, a constant stream of cash-strapped back-packers, queues for the bathroom, modest facilities. People singing YMCA (Or is that just us?)
Luckily Liverpool’s Euro Hostel is nothing like that. This modern hostel is spacious, vibrantly decked out and fully equipped with comfortable beds, free WiFi, self-catering kitchens, self-service laundry and a cracking bar. It’s also located in the middle of Liverpool’s lively LGBT quarter, so there may be just a bit of YMCA after all.
If there was ever a hotel that needed a strong and uncompromising character it’s this one and like the great man himself, Liverpool’s Shankly Hotel delivers.
A tribute to the life and career of Bill Shankly, one of football’s finest managers, the Four Star Shankly isn’t your typical themed hotel. Firstly, it’s incredibly stylish, offering football fans from all over the world a luxurious stay that’s a far cry from football stadium terraces.
The hotel and its excellent Bastion Bar & Restaurant feature plenty of Shankly memorabilia, including the manager’s original LFC contract, his telegram from Neil Armstrong and his ‘This Is Your Life’ book.
No place on Earth offers such a unique look at the legendary manager’s career. The Shankly Hotel was made for Liverpool and Liverpool was made for the Shankly Hotel.
Liverpool has joined Paris and Barcelona in a select group of cities to host a Pullman Hotel. Adjoined to ACC Liverpool in Kings Dock, The Four Star, £26m Pullman Liverpool is just a stone’s throw from Liverpool ONE, The Albert Dock and the Museum of Liverpool.
Business travellers will love the hotel’s own meeting and event spaces and its proximity to ACC and Exhibition Centre Liverpool. All travellers will love Dukes, their relaxed brasserie style restaurant and its exceptional view across the River Mersey. Pullman Hotel makes a very welcome addition to Liverpool’s strong selection of waterfront hotels.
The smart folks at Ibis know a good thing when they see one. Their second Liverpool hotel is also the second in the city to pay homage to The Beatles, but the first to offer the experience at a budget price.
Ibis Styles Dale Street may be located in Liverpool’s Commercial District, but it has a fun-loving free spirited heart. Ibis Styles brings the swinging sixties back by retro-fitting all of its 123 rooms with a psychedelic style and funky far-out furnishings.
To create the necessary melodic impression, painted Beatles lyrics weave their way across the hotels walls, mingling with the fab four’s greatest hits, to bring home the message that it was Liverpool that inspired The Beatles and The Beatles that continue to inspire us.
Epic Aparthotel Duke Street
Love to cook but hate making the bed? Liverpool’s latest Epic Aparthotel could be made just for you.
Bringing the best features of hotels and serviced apartments together is a mash-up that clearly works. Liverpool’s Duke Street Epic Aparthotel is the third in the city and proves that affordable luxury is always in style.
The latest addition is a refurbished Victorian townhouse that offers everything you would want from a city centre hotel – including the kitchen sink, as each suite comes with its own kitchen and dining area, enabling guests can cook and dine at their leisure. But don’t worry, housekeeping still take care of all the cleaning and linen. You’re on holiday after all.
