We've just come back from a few days in Brno staying at the Hotel Europa. Our room was clean and smart, had plenty of space for luggage/clothes and, more importantly, a comfortable bed. Ask for extra pillows as the two supplied are the "flat" style that is common in Central Europe. Fantastic shower (no bath in our room) and there is a hair-dryer fitted in the bathroom. If you don't like A/C, the windows open for fresh air plus the room has radiators for heating.
As a vegetarian I found plenty of options in the excellent breakfast buffet, and the quality of the food was good so I don't really know why there are any complaints unless some visitors are expecting something other than a Central European buffet breakfast.
I noticed guests smoking in the lobby area on a couple of occasions but never the staff so I would suggest that Berkscouple2's conjecture is wide of the mark. Either that or staff training has improved enormously: all four receptionists we spoke to were cheerful and helpful, speaking good English and the receptionist on duty when we checked out offered to book a taxi to the airport for us.
There are about 5 bars (including an English pub...) on the hotel's road, as well as two restaurants - one of them Italian.
At the end of the road is the Luzanky Park, idea for a relaxing stroll around before tackling the steep hill or steps up to the Tugendhat VIlla.
I've travelled extensively and stayed in a wide variety of hotels all the way up to 5-star standard. I like the Hotel Europa for what it is: a smart, clean, 3-star hotel in a quiet area close to the sights in a Central European city that is not packed full of tourists. I will certainly be staying there again.
