“Would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

When I first entered the Europa Hotel I thought I'd made a big mistake. As someone else said no
curb appeal but I couldn't have been more wrong. This is a great place to stay. Miriam,Roberto and "Mama" make everyone feel at home. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was quite good and the location is great. I am planning on a return trip to Florence and I will stay here again.

My wife and I booked 2 nights here on short notice using Rick Steve's guide book. Although the hotel was located inside the "No Drive" zone for non-residents, Robert advised me that we could drive to the hotel without being fined as long as we put our car into a local parking garage which he arranged. The hotel location was fantastic, all the popular sights within easy walking distance. The room was clean, breakfast was good and Robert and Miriam are great hosts. We will stay here again.

Located the hotel in Rick Steve's book. Stayed for 3 nights and was very surprised by both the proximity to the Academie, Duomo and the Medicci Chapelle and the wonderfully helpful owners Robert and Miriam. The room was recently updated had a great view of the Duomo and the bed was excellent. It's often a lot about service and these two owners have it wired. Curb appeal is nothing to write home about but once inside they made you feel you were home.

We booked the Hotel Europa for 3 nights in Florence, the location was perfect. It was a short walk to the basilica, the Accadamia and th San Lorenzo market. They had a good, standard breakfast. The bathroom had been updated but room was a little dated however, the location and the price more than makes up for it.

My husband and I stayed here 30 years ago. How did he remember the name of the hotel? Because they were so nice . The next generation is now running the hotel. Miriam and her husband Robert are the nicest folks you could ask for. They are friendly, helpful and interesting.
The hotel location could not be any better, and despite the central location, the hotel is surprisingly quiet. The rooms are clean and comfortable, though nothing fancy. I loved being able to see the top of the Duomo from the window of the room. We will definitely stay here when we return to Florence. Oh, and the breakfast was great.

As a world traveler, I am always worried about 'budget' hotels. I normally stay in upscale hotels as I travel for business - and try to do so (if reasonably priced) even when traveling for leisure. Downtown Florence is not cheap, at-least not for your average traveler.

I then relied on hotel recommendations (Travel through Europe by Rick Steve's) and found Hotel Europa. I could not be any happier with the recommendation. The room was comfortable, the rate was competitive - even economical, but most importantly the location an staff were nothing short of amazing.

If you are most interested in the overall experience of the travel (Florence itself plus seeing David at the Accademia) you can hardly do better than this hotel. Everything is within minutes by foot. The staff will go out of their way to help your every needs and they speak perfect English :-)

Once again, Rick Steve's recommendation was spot on. Owned and run by a local family for more than 40 years it is like "home". The breakfast offered lots of options Miriam and Robert were always ready to assist with directions and suggestions.
