We have been at the Hotel Europa for4 nights and will leave tomorrow. The location is an easy walk to everything including the train station. Our room has a balcony which we used to eat our lunch most days. It is very quiet and spotlessly clean. The hotel is owned and run buy the same family for 40 years. Bed... More

If you're looking for an American style, 5 star hotel, then Hotel Europa is not for you. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a purely Italian experience in a cozy little hotel that feels like home, then this is for you. My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay in this perfect, centrally located hotel and... More

We're not drawn to 5 star chain hotels so this family-owned modest hotel in the middle of all the important sites of Florence was perfect for us. The pics show the balcony of our room #47 (which seemed to be the only room with a balcony) & the view of the Duomo from there. Miriam & Roberto, the owner-operators along... More

The rooms were comfortable and quiet, the view was great. Only wish we had more time there. Centrally located and the staff was very informative as to where to find everything we wanted to see. As for the encluded breakfast it was amazing. Can't wait to visit again and explore the region some more. Miriam and Robert were great and... More

We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Florence, some rated three stars, but none can compare to Europa. Though it didn’t have a Duomo view, our spacious room opened onto a quiet and wide courtyard. It was impeccably clean and beautifully furnished with old style but comfortable furniture. Miriam and Robert, the owners of the hotel, are an... More

Booked on the strength of the trip advisor comments & have to say they are true to their word - thank you fellow travellers! The hotel is at the heart of the city across from the train station - there is parking under the hotel but this is costly. If you ask at reception they will arrange for valet parking... More

This is a family run operation and you will be welcomed as if you were part of the family. We recently spent four nights in Florence and enjoyed the convenience, cleanliness, comfort and breakfast at this hotel. The hotel is located on Via Covour which is wide, clean street within easy walking distance to all the tourist sites. My wife... More

We ended up booking this room the night of, and it was a great choice. The rooms were extremely clean, the staff was friendly and the breakfast was great. There was a safe in the room and the room felt open and comfortable. The only problem was that the WiFi didn't work in our room. The location is central to... More

We stayed at the Hotel Europa in September 2013. Location is very central to the sites in Florence. The hotel itself is very old and we chose to walk up 2 floors rather than take the 4' by 4' old cage lift. The room was very clean and the breakfast good. In addition to breads and cheese and meat, there... More

We booked this hotel for a one-night stay in Florence based on all the terrific reviews. It did not disappoint! Modest but very clean, with very comfortable (very firm) beds, an outstanding breakfast and delightful, helpful owners. We look forward to a return visit and a much longer stay next time.
