As a former resident of Belfast the Europa is held in some affection as the original grande dame of hostelry in Northern Ireland. It has been through some well-documented trials in the past, so when a business trip home beckoned I was really quite excited about checking into the Europa.
I was not disappointed. It's got the best location of any hotel in the city centre. Front desk staff should be cloned and sent around the world....no-one does a welcome like Northern Ireland!
The room had been recently refurbished and was nicely done. Flat screen tv, comfy bed, nice bathroom, all good.
Breakfast was a bit tricky, but I did arrive in the wake of about 50 delightful American ladies who had clealy warmed to the charms of an Ulster fry!
It may not be as snazzy as some of the newer trendy hotels in Belfast but I suspect it doesn't want to be. The Europa is continuing the proud tradition of serving well the business traveller to Belfast.
It's a real treat to stay in a hotel with a heart.
