The Belfast Europa is a member of the prestigious Hastings Hotel chain; which in our experience follows the principles of exceptional, intimate service from all staff members you en counter combined with faultless luxury within the hotel, which subsequently results in a truly unique home from home feel. The Europa Hotel is a well known and majestic building, superbly located for quick and hassle free access to many of Belfast’s key points of interest. The Europa offers guests the choice of 272 newly refurbished bedrooms, which includes both executive bedrooms and themed suites. In accordance with the city’s history, the Europa has designed a luxury Titanic Suite which has been in operation for three years now. The suite is stunning; lavishly decorated with rich, complementing colours filled with all the modern comforts you could so desire whilst including books and plaques on the luxury liner itself. When considering the above information it is of no surprise that The Europa is a popular choice of location with guests and celebrities alike. Notable names include the former US President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton, the Mummy star Brendan Fraser and musician Van Morrison to name but a few!
On a recent trip to Belfast, we could not resist trying our very first afternoon tea in Northern Ireland at the Europa. Afternoon tea here is a subject taken very seriously, with results that will leave you both deliciously satisfied and eagerly planning when you can next visit to experience every delicious bite again. At the Europa afternoon tea is served in the Piano Lounge, which we both agree is simply stunning. The Piano Lounge is beautifully decorated, with large windows allowing natural daylight to pour into the room whilst offering guests views of the bustling Great Victoria Street below.
