Enjoyed a 1 night break with my friend, I had been there many times before but this visit disappointed - the room was way too hot, could not control the temperature and had the window open.

One of the most relaxing stays we've had in a while. The spa is stunning, with out door heated thermal pools. Our room was upgraded and proved to be extremely spacious with a great sized balcony. Views are breathtaking and I would highly recommend a break away here. Staff and service was second to none.

They are...

The Europe is an amazing hotel, that offers an even amazing viewpoint to enjoy the scenery of the area. We were greeted by a friendly doorman, and quickly brought to a moment of relaxation with a hot towel at check in. The room was well-appointed, and the views from the balcony were breathtaking. Sad that I did not get to...

This was my second time to stay in The Europe and it is still my favourite hotel. Apart from the stunning and unique views, it's 5 star at it's best but still homely and welcoming. The rooms, choice of 3 great restaurants with great food and of course the staff. The Spa, I'm not surprised it won Best Spa in...
