BELFAST'S Europa Hotel has completed a £10 million renovation programme of its guest bedrooms.

Some 100 front-facing 'superior' bedrooms, 80 'classic' bedrooms and five suites have been completely redesigned and upgraded with new furnishings and bathrooms, automated window blinds and are individually air-conditioned.

The hotel’s classic rooms have new king cloud bed while superior rooms have super king cloud beds.

Andy McNeill, general manager of the Hastings Hotels-owned property, said: “The Europa is one of the world’s most famous hotels, and while we have stayed true to our rich heritage, we have thoughtfully reimagined the design of our guest bedrooms to offer a new urban chic feel, which comes complete with bevelled mirrors and on-trend brushed brass.

“The classic rooms also have a contemporary, deconstructed glass-panelled shower room with modesty curtain which elevates the modern look of the room.”

“The beautiful fabrics pay homage to the Europa’s location in Belfast’s Linen Quarter and the textures and earthy tones help create a restful sleeping space.”

He added: “Soft geometrics and carpet design create a subtle backdrop to the rich, dark timber furniture with classic marble tops and the remote-control blinds mean that at touch of a button, guests can lie in bed and enjoy the stunning city views.”

The Europa Hotel worked with local companies RPP Architects and Interiors and Floor Design to create the vision and Graham Construction delivered the renovation programme.

“The Europa has been reborn and we are thrilled with the results,” Andy said.

“Feedback from guests has been positive and we're confident that this new investment will ensure we continue to attract visitors from around the world as well as from the domestic market.”
