The Resident Liverpool is a well-priced city center hotel located in the lively Ropewalks area of the pool. Forget fancy gadgets, extravagant conveniences and endless services; this hotel is all about location and service. Staff are equipped with Scouse spirit bags and everything you need is right on the hotel doorstep. If you’re looking for a city break, a night out or a business stay in Merseyside, and you’re on a budget, The Resident Liverpool is a solid option.
The Resident Liverpool is located in the heart of the city. This means you can hit designer shops, eat a great meal, or hit a club until you feel like it in minutes. Not to mention that Liverpool Central Station is only a ten minute walk away. Flying in from Liverpool John Lennon? Take the 86A or 500 bus, which will drop you off at the bottom of the road (seconds from the hotel).
Rooms at Resident Liverpool are modern, humble and comfortable. The color palette is understated yet elegant (imagine black, cream, and teal). While the decor, from the Paul Smith desk lamp and colorful wall art, is contemporary in style. In terms of comfort, it’s hard to complain. You have a huge and comfortable bed, quality linens and electric blackout curtains. Although you don’t get the interior frills, modern amenities, or expensive toiletries you’d get at some similarly rated hotels; you’ll probably get a good night’s sleep knowing you haven’t spent a fortune. Suites are available for extra money and come with leather couches, huge windows, and soaking tubs. Despite the proximity of many clubs and bars, all rooms and suites are well soundproofed.
Style, staff and stuff
The Resident Liverpool, a former printing works, has a stunning industrial exterior. The relaxing lobby is well-designed, with a mix of high and low seating and plenty of power outlets for business travelers and remote workers. The style is sober but current. Unfortunately, there’s no gym or other facilities (the Resident Collective says they want guests to use local businesses). However, customer service is serious, personal and welcoming. The staff are cheerful, quick-witted and quick to help with anything – even suggesting a good place to get a haircut.
The hotel does not have a restaurant or bar. Fortunately, you have everything you need on your doorstep (bakeries, supermarkets and restaurants). Resident Liverpool also does not serve breakfast but has a range of local partners who offer exclusive discounts to resident guests. You’ll find them listed on your bedroom TVs. Simply show your keycard to the partner and they will apply the offer. Turtle Bay isn’t on the list but it’s a good option – it serves quality Caribbean food and cocktails. There’s also a Tesco a minute away, if you want supplies.
Standard double rooms at Resident Liverpool are available from £59 per night.
