This lovely hotel is less than two blocks from the Duomo, on the first and second floors of a great building. Miriam and Robert are so welcoming and helpful. We have just spent a week there. Our room 49 had a view of the courtyard garden as well as the Duomo dome. We actually had a king size bed which is a rare luxury in Europe! This hotel is safe, clean, quiet and well equipped. We had a small refrigerator for our own use and an in-room safe. The small elevator was efficient and great for luggage. The breakfast with rolls, yogurt, ham and cheese and that marvelous coffee always got us off to a great start. We also took the Best of Tuscany tour recommended by Miriam and were so pleased! This is an amazing hotel for a bargain price. Thanks again to Miriam and Robert and all their staff for a wonderful stay.

We loved the convenient location and our room was very nice and clean. The shower had good pressure and hot water. We could see the Duomo out our window! The front desk staff we also very helpful and friendly. There was a power outage our first night there and they were more than helpful offering to relocate us, giving us candles and flashlights and updates on the status. The breakfast was pretty good--the croissants could have been fresher but the hot cocoa/coffee was good!

I stayed in this hotel during a business trip last July, and was impressed with the hotel's neatness and very good central location in Firenze. We got a tip for a nearby restaurant, and were very impressed with the level of English that the front desk staff member had. Rooms were very neat, and clean.

The Hotel Europa is located in the center of Firenze, close to most of the attractions that we visited. The hotel is clean and neat, maintained by a staff that is courteous and friendly. They helped us with our e-mail needs at an inexpensive price. Miriam and Robert were always available to help with directions or anything else that we wanted during our stay in Firenze.

I cannot think of enough good things to say about the hospitality displayed by the hotel staff, especially Gassim. From the moment we first walked into Hotel Europa, we were greeted by Gassim's wonderful smile. Gassim took the time out to learn each of our names, which is a nice personal touch you can't find at just any hotel!! You can tell that he takes pride in his job, and that the rest of his family does as well...they were all so friendly and accommodating! Rooms were clean and nice for a two-star hotel. Breakfast was good, and Gassim's cappucinos were excellent! We looked forward to them each morning. The hotel location was right in the center of town, with the Duomo less than 5 minutes from the hotel and the train station about 10 minutes away. We ventured overnight to Paris, and Gassim let us store the bulk of our luggage in our room, free of charge! This was unexpected and we were grateful for him letting us do so. I would recommend this hotel to travelers and would stay here again.

My husband and I , with our daughter and 2 granddaughters (ages 3 and 5) spent 3 nights/4 days in Florence. Hotel Europa is located just 2 blocks from Il Duomo, and within walking distance of most attractions. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were recently remodeled and had all modern amenities. The antique elevator gave us pause, but worked as well as more modern ones. Miriam (owner/host) was charming and helpful, and spoke English! Hotel Europa offers breakfast (juice, rolls, ham, croissant, cereal and yogurt) and coffee/cappucino. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to be able to visit again!

I stayed with my family at Hotel Europa last October whilst visiting Italy. My mother had stayed here before and wanted to come back.
She was right- this was a wonderful hotel :)
Miriam and Gasim were SO nice, nothing was ever too much trouble for them and they always had a smile on their faces.
I felt really welcome there.
On one occasion, my father and I were chatting to Miriam and it stuck in my mind how lovely she was!!
The hotel rooms were beautiful - just as good as some of the museums that you pay to visit, yet I had it all in my own hotel room.
IThe Europa is conveniently located; walking distance from the main attractions and five minutes from the duomo.

I would strongly reccommend staying at this hotel and I will certainly stay there again when I next visit Florence.
