Loved the ambiance of the Hotel Europafrom ronlieb51
The owners do everything possible to make your stay a good one. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of all the major attractions in Florence. The owners will make reservations for you too see David by Michaleangelo and the Uffizi Galery.
The rooms are spacious, quiet and well-appointed. The staff is very friendly, which follows the owner's attitude to ensure the guests are comfortable. The morning breakfast is good.
The hotel itself is a very interesting architecture site as the building is 300 years old and once was a monastery. The dining room has one of the original ceiling frescoes, which is nice to see in the morning.
My family and I whole heartedly recommend the hotel.
A great place to stay in Florence!!from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel has been recently updated and is clean and well-kept and attractive. From my room I could see the Duomo and the frescoe on the ceiling was 700 years old. It was charming and quiet. (I recommend asking for a room away from Via Cavour, as the major street can be noisy at night.)
Being a single lady traveler, I look for hotels that are clean, safe and reasonably priced. Hotel Europa is much more than that and exceeded my expectations in every way. I feel it's a real bargain.
The owners were so friendly and made me feel at home by greeting me by name each time I appeared. During my stay I used the free internet service frequently to plan my further travels and Gassim, the manager, was helpful with suggestions and advice when asked. He's a real gem.
I would highly recommend Hotel Europa in Florence and would certainly stay there again.
Hotel Europa Servesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The continental breakfast was mediocre, with cereal, prepackaged bread, and orange juice. No fruit offered. The coffee was excellent, with several coffee options available.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We would definitely go back.
Room nice, but hotel owner a bit uptightfrom RMoe
Our only real complaint was the hotel owner... he is from Nigeria and has run the hotel for many years (we learned from visiting with him). However, he always seemed to be slightly suspicious or at least a bit uptight. For instance, when we bought a bottle of water from other hotels, they would charge it to the room. Here, the owner wanted cash in hand right then. He also made us pay the bill for three nights after the second night. Perhaps he had people skip out after the last night stay without paying or something. We didn't care but it seemed that he was just a bit uptight and not overly trusting of people. The breakfast was ok but not near as good as we had in Rome or in Venice.
Our stay at the Hotel Europa was good but we'd probably find a different place if we return to Florence in the future.
Top Local Tips for Florence
Florence---great city for walking We loved being able to walk everywhere in Florence. It is small and offers so much in outdoor markets and museums. Be sure to get tickets for the Ufizzi before you go to avoid a very long wait--over an hour!
Wonderful food Go to La Pentola dell'Oro down Via di Mezzo. The chef has his own cookbook. There is nothing else down this road, but the dining room is down in a cellar with exposed bricks. The food was wonderful & very well-priced. The menu was in Italian but the waitress explained everything to us. The only people there were Italian, which is always a good sign! My wife was even given a little pair of earrings on leaving!
Beware of Taxi's and Restaurant rip offs in Italy We only had one problem with one Taxi in Florence, it was when he was taking us to the train station. He decided to charge us for each piece of lugguage in addition to our 5 minute journey. We didn't think to ask if there was going to be an *extra* charges. Also, the restaurants would over charge us and bring us items we didn't order. So keep your menu, and insist on them taking things back if you didn't order it, they didn't have a problem with doing it. For example, if we ordered one pizza they would bring 3. Or if we ordered one steak, they would bring two. Not sure why this consistently happened, but it did throughout Italy. No need to order a bottle of wine, as the house wines are typically very good.
