“Loved the Hotel Europa, would definitely come back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

We really loved the Hotel Europa on our trip to Florence a few weeks back.

- Location.

The location of the hotel is great, walking distance to every major sight on Florence and walking distance to the station. It's also close to a number of decent restaurants close by, (Za Za was by far our favorite).

- Room.

The rooms were very clean, the bed was a little on the firm side (which most of ours were on our trip to Italy!) but we had no problem sleeping. Our room (47 I think) had a balcony that had a nice view of the Duomo. This was the first room on our trip to Italy that had AC so it was a welcome sight!

- Amenities.

The hotel provides free wifi (just ask at the front desk), the hotel also has an elevator. Believe me after our hotels in Siena and Vernazza this also was a VERY welcome sight!

The hotel also does a nice continental breakfast in the morning (coffee/cappuccinos/croissants etc).

- Service.

Robert behind the front desk was a great source of info. He took us through a (free) map of the city and showed us the locations of all the major sights in the city.

- Overall.

As I said above we couldn't have wished for a better experience in Florence. We would definitely recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Florence!

I had never stayed at Hotel Europa before, and had my misgivings before I got there since it was so close to the duomo (2 blocks). I was concerned that it might be noisy and on the old side. I was pleasantly surprised with everything in this little oasis from the crowds and heat of Florence in the summer. My room was remodeled, extremely clean, had a great modern bathroom, was air conditioned, and had a great view. The most memorable part of my experience here was the staff - Miriam, John, and their daughters were so gracious and friendly I began to feel like I was staying with family, which is really nice when you're traveling alone. This hotel will definately be my place to stay when i go back.

We loved this hotel. It had an old Europe flavor with all the modern conveniences. The staff was lovely and made all of our arrangements for museums and tours on very short notice. The location was perfect. The street it was on was uncrowded and it was so centrally located that we could walk comfortably in any direction and find something wonderful. We found an internet cafe, a great wine shop, and many restaurants within a block.
Our window provided a view of a charming courtyard below and the dome of the Duomo in the distance. Its bells were wonderful. This hotel was an essential part of our experience of Florence.

We have stayed at this hotel twice and will go back next time in florence. Great location, it's a short stroll to all attractions and a 10 minute walk to train station. Great restaurants, bakeries and shops around the hotel. Ask the front desk as they are most helpful and have great recommendations. The rooms are spacious, clean with beautiful tiled floors and beautiful furniture. The suites are extra special and luxurious! In terms of value you can't do better than this hotel in Florence!

First of all, very easy walk from the train station, and very close to all of the major sites. The staff was incredibly helpful and recommended some great restaurants. Rooms were probably the most spacious of our entire trip and the internet access was convenient and easy. A great place to stay when visiting Florence!

My teenage son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Europa. Robert and Miriam are EXCELLENT hosts, always ready to go the extra mile. The location is perfect -- a couple blocks from the Duomo one way, and the Accademia Gallery the other. Our room had an amazing view of the Duomo and Bell Tower. We also decided after finishing our visits to Rome and Venice, that Florence was our favorite stop in Italy. I highly recommend this hotel!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view -- but you will need to climb a narrow flight of stairs to get to that ro...

Very nice! We had a family of 4 and stayed in the 1st floor apartment. Had a skeleton key!! This 15th century hotel had a very up todate bathroom, internet access (for a price) and elavator (albeit a small and old one).

The location is perfect. About 4 blocks from the leather market and a couple from the best dining in the city. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. The breakfast is adequate to get your day going. We did not need a cab once! You can walk everywhere you need to go.

We will stay there again!
