Stayed in the Europa 9-16th July 2012 as part of a holiday with Riviera Travel. An hour drive from Verona and at the head of Lake Garda.
After reading previous reviews concerning potential noise from the outside bars and eateries, we decided to request a courtyard room. Room 112 was a good size and very clean, with a side view over the lake. We also had a terrace with table and chairs. Apparently the front (lake facing) rooms were not too noisy either and those that stayed in these just shut the double glazed windows.
The hotel is a few metres from the waterfront and only a couple of minutes walk from the town square and shops.
The highlight of the hotel itself was the food. The chef received a standing ovation at the end of the week. You are allocated a table for the week for your evening meals, although breakfast can be taken at any, including the terraced conservatory, with fine early morning views over the lake.
Evening meals consisted of 4 courses, salad from a buffet then a choice of meals for the other 3. Was of a very good standard. The waitresses were very friendly and managed by the charismatic Gianni who made everybody welcome.
Don't expect english TV channels in the room....we only found BBC World News...but then we went there for the Lake and villages, not the TV.
Overall, very enjoyable and good value.
