I've stayed at the Europa twice before and love Belfast for so many reasons - I'm a real Welsh country girl and Belfast is the only city I can visit which doesn't make me ache for the mountains of home! This time my partner and I took my mum for her birthday, it was a complete surprise (she didn't know until she got her boarding pass at the airport where we were taking her). She's travelled all over the world for many years and she said to me last night that it was the warmest and loveliest hotel she has ever stayed in - and I agree! It's worth more than its 4 stars, in my opinion, but whilst it gives 5-star service and facilities it's as friendly and welcoming as a country B&B. The staff are efficient without being cold, they always have time for a chat and a laugh and are attentive without being overbearing. The rooms are impeccable and we have built up quite a collection of Europa Hotel rubber ducks in our bathroom at home, a fantastic touch which shows that this place doesn't take itself TOO seriously :-) We ate in the Piano Bar in the evening, I've spent many wonderful hours there in earlier visits and the bar food is excellent - the perfect accompaniment to Guinness and Sauvignon Blanc. I cannot recommend this hotel warmly enough, its history is fascinating, the perfect testament to the humbling strides of progress and mutual understanding made by the people of Belfast and the only problem with saying great things is that I will struggle to get a room there now!!
We arrived at 9am on the Friday 17th and asked if we could leave our luggage in one of there rooms until we could check in at 2pm,to our surprise the staff said we can have our rooms now and use there facilities.
Staff where ever so helpful.
Myself and my partner stayed at the Hilton for one night and I wish it had of been for more! The staff where first class and where so helpful they where able to tell us where to go for the night life and order is a taxi without any problems! The room was amazing so clean and big I can't fault a thing! Defo will be staying again and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later!
The perfect hotel for a mini-break in Belfast. It's right in the heart of the city, within walking distance of all the main attractions and a stone's throw from the Europa Bus Station and a dozen pubs. The ideal location! It's a newly-built hotel so everything is in excellent condition. Rooms are a good size and contain all the basic essentials. Beds are new and extremely comfortable. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Nothing is too much trouble. There's an on-site restaurant, which was much more expensive than other local eateries. Inexpensive, quality meals can be found within a short walk in any direction, so there's always a choice.
Belfast is a city recovering from troubled times. The tourist industry is helping their recovery. Many new hotels have opened in the last five years, but you'd go a long way to better the Travelodge.
