5 of the best city-centre stays in Liverpool

Travelling to the quirky, infamous city of the North but don´t know where to stay?

So many hotels claim to offer the best experience. But whether you´ve been catfished before, or just can´t be bothered trawling through hundreds of online options, we know the stress and hassle can be done without.

And we want you to make the most of your trip, from booking to checkout!

Get involved in the vibrant, unique and memorable fun Liverpool has to offer, and for once, you won´t be sad that your night has to end… Because you´ll be returning to one of the coolest, extravagant hotels around.

  1. Arthouse hotel

Movie-lovers or those that like their hotels with an edgy twist, simply can´t stay anywhere else but here.

With themed rooms taking inspiration from legends such as Alfred Hitchcock, Andy Warhol and Leonardo de Vinci, this hotel is a piece of art in itself.

If your interest lies anywhere in the realm of film, music or art, you are sure to be blown away here. The decorations and eccentric vibe flows through every room, inspiring a trip that is sure to be exceptionally out of the ordinary.

If for some reason you don´t fancy setting up camp in a room that pays homage to Rocky Horror or The Wizard of Oz, choose one of the glorious Skyline Suites. These would be perfect for any big groups who want to spend every moment of their time together, laughing and making memories.

The Skyline Suites can be interconnected, so up to 24 of you could book the entire floor for yourselves. The rooms boast a private terrace with amazing views of Liverpool. You and your friends can sit in the sun and dry off after taking a dip in the room´s luxurious, immense Roman bath, or chill out with drinks from your very own private bar.

The Arthouse Hotel is less than ten minutes from Liverpool Central Train Station so you wouldn´t have to traipse your luggage around. And it´s only 700m away from Europe’s leading retail and leisure destination, Liverpool ONE.


  1. The Shankly Hotel 

Although a tribute to one of England´s greatest football managers, Bill Shankly, you won´t be outnumbered by hooligans spilling their beer pitchers here.

Of course, the theme does run throughout the hotel, showcasing intriguing and unseen memorabilia. The Shankly Hotel has managed to take a man´s sport and give it an elegant twist, making it perfect for couple´s that have one footie-mad, red-lover, and one that´s, well… Not as bothered.

There are many options to choose from here. Sleep in a classy, traditional room that oozes romance and intimacy. Alternatively, get the whole gang together for a crazy weekend and take advantage of the group accommodation suites. For example, the Flamingo Suite sleeps up to 12 guests and includes a whirlpool bath, swinging egg chairs, individual dressing tables, built-in Bluetooth speakers and of course… Flamingoes hanging from the roof.

The Garden of Eden is The Shankly Hotel´s dedicated rooftop bar that offers stunning views of Liverpool´s spectacular skyline. This unique venue sometimes hosts amazing events such as The Mad Hatter´s Afternoon Tea Party and Big Luv´s Ibiza Classics, so keep your eyes peeled as something could be the cherry on top of your Liverpudlian cake!


  1. 30 James Street 

Staying in the home of the Titanic is one sure way to make your stay memorable.

The glorious building that was once the address for the RMS Titanic during its lifespan from 1908 to 1912. Nowadays it is the site of a magnificent hotel that has respectfully restored the building to its former glory, combining the traditional architecture with modern twists.

This hotel has a room for every kind of person. It doesn´t matter if you want to go back to basics as you can choose a room in the quarters, simple and elegant with the comforts a home away from home should have.

Or you can go to the other end of the spectrum and book the Presidential Suite. The champagne turret seating area, steam room and spa pool will truly make you feel like a first-class passenger. Minus any seasickness.

You could even go one step further and actually book Morgan´s Vault, a room adjacent to the magnificent Morgan´s Spa. This one of a kind, subterranean paradise features a 40 sq ft hydrotherapy pool and has professional therapists performing bespoke spa treatments. And if you have 48 friends that want to come along and stay, you can bring them all along!

The newest construction of the bunch, The Dixie Dean Hotel has already shot up into the top ten hotels in Liverpool.

Another football-themed hotel (this time relating to the rival blues!) that this time pays homage to yes, you guessed it – Dixie Dean. One of the most prolific goal-scorers England has ever produced.

Even though the name suggests all things Everton, this beautiful Grade II listed building contains luxury boutique rooms with double jacuzzi baths, copper furnishings and unique, opulent details.

This hotel is only five minutes away from The Cavern Club, birthplace of The Beatles. Take the time to visit the most famous club in the world, listen to up-and-coming artists and stand in the place where hundreds of adoring fans have watched nobodies become somebodies including the likes of The Beatles, Cilla Black and Adele.
