Lonely Planet review
Belfast's most famous hotel has seen more makeovers than most thanks to its tormented history, but its latest refurbishment exudes a plush but business-like air with a series of stylish new executive rooms challenging the hotel's somewhat predictable international standards.
Superbly located in an imposing building at the city's heart, the Europa attracts a mixed crowd of politicians, business folk, international footballers and the merely curious. The hub bub of activity in the foyer and the seemingly constant flow of punters to the hotel's three bars make it an excellent spot for people watching and catching up on local news. The rooms have all been recently refurbished with elegant but conservative decor and boast all the usual refinements of an international business hotel. For something more luxurious however, snare an executive room in the newly completed wing. Sexier and more spacious, these rooms boast flat screen TVs, midi systems, large bathrooms with double sinks and plenty of freebie toiletries.
Our independent authors have visited Europa Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Belfast to Bangor.
