“Nice, clean hotel”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is a nice, adequate hotel to stay in.
If you are looking for a comfortable, clean room with LOVELY people running it then this is for you.
The location is fantastic. Minutes to everything.
Rooms are spacious.
Breakfast is ok.
WiFi works intermittently.
Decor etc is on the tired side but if that's not a problem for you then you're on a winner.
I thought it was a bit expensive for what you got but it's probably the location that sets the price.

Great location, large and clean room, nice breakfast, and friendly, helpful owners... this hotel fires on all cylinders. They recommended the local ZaZa restaurant for dinner, which was also nice. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

What a lovely experience we had with Hotel Europa. Miriam is such a gracious hostess and makes great American coffee. We had a spacious room with an amazing view (could see the Campanelle of the Duoma from our large shuttered window). Three minutes from The Academia, short walk to the Duoma and to a restaurant Miriam recommended that was on of our favorites for our trip to Italy. Not kidding about the shower. It had lots of pressure unlike others we had experienced. I know I got all the soap out of my hair! No question, this is where we will stay on our next trip to Florence. Thank you again, Miriam for such a wonderful stay. We loved it. Anne and Stuart Wright

Florence was one of 5 Italian cities my wife and I visited for our 25th wedding anniversary. All were great, but this was the best stop. Miriam was very cheerful & helpful. Rooms were very nice - not that big, but large for an European room. Location was FANTASTIC. Duemo was just a block or 2 away. Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Europa. The staff was very helpful and safely held our luggage due to our early arrival. The location is perfect for walking to all the major sights in Florence. The room was clean and quite large by European standards. The breakfast was included and a very good continental selection. English was no problem at all when discussing anything with the staff.

The hotel Europa is in a great location in Florence. One can walk to the major sites - Ponte Vecchio, Duomo, Academia (David). Tuscany is a short drive and Pisa is an hour away by train to which one can walk in 20 minutes. Restaurants are nearby, no need to drive anywhere to get a meal.

As for the hotel, its in an old building (as are most hotels in Florence) on the 2nd and 3rd floor. The street entrance to the hotel has a distinctive moldy odor which was always there . The elevator is tiny (2 people at best) but it gets the job done. The desk is on the 3rd floor as is the breakfast room - if you have a room on the 2nd floor , up you go. The rooms are dates but tidy, showers are small, TVs ancient but the wifi works well. Miriam and Robert do their best to accommodate your needs.
There is no parking. A vehicle is picked up by someone and taken to a parking garage for which there is a hefty price. We had a van so the cost was 60 euros a day.
The breakfasts are fine.
One draw back is if staying on the second floor there is a door to negotiate requiring a key. If a couple is moving around separately someone will be locked out of second floor access. Up you go to the desk.

They have a common room for people to use for wine drinking and relaxing and there is a computer for renters' use.

While we take this opportunity to thank all our guests we would also like to clarify a few things.

Most buildings in florence are old as they were built in the 14th century such as our building.
The street area can have a certain smell to it when it rains like in most of florence.However the hotel is not situated on the ground floor but rather on the 1st and 2nd floor of the building.Once you enter into the hotel it is completely different as stated by comments made by other guests due to the renovations we make every year.The elevator can hold up to 4 people as stated on a placard inside the elevator.The maximum weight it can hold is
320kg.Maybe they took into consideration the size and weight of people and the building itself when constructing it in those days!
Our main concern is about the garage.We have no problem with reviews.Guests are free to express themselves.The only problem we do have is when a statement has been made,such as the garage costing "60 euro a day for a minivan”.We were horrified to hear this and so concerned that we contacted the garage immediately for some clarification.They promptly came to the hotel producing a copy of the receipt they gave our guests,which quoted 45 euro per day which is the rate we have in our records.
i feel i must point out that the price for a normal 4 door car cost from 24 euro per day which you pay directly to the garage.
Please note that we do not charge commission for this service.

Regards
