The Europa Royale is a careful conversion of a magnificent late 19c mansion and a key historic building, centrally located near the Opera House. Some of the detailing is very good and the overall impression is luxurious. However, the general atmosphere is somewhat gloomy - different colours and better lighting would help. There is a small courtyard which would be pleasant in good weather.
Our room was spacious but sparsely furnished (just one upright chair!) The wallpaper was a depressing dark blue. The bathroom was also large but lacked shelving. Housekeeping was somewhat sloppy.
The dining room (Benjamins) is splendid and the breakfast buffet extensive. Our dinner had more style than substance.
After two nights, we left with the feeling that this property has five star potential but that it needs a physical makeover and better management to realise it. For now, it’s just about four star.
