It was with a feeling of great relief that we looked at the signboard that glowed in the night. The signboard read HOTEL EUROPA. We had had a harrowing experience in the morning which bordered on the agony and later had some ecstatic moments in Florence. The sight of the Hotel was the welcoming sight of an oasis in a Desert.
Why we felt like this may be read in one of our earlier post:
Our Experience in Hotel Europa
As soon as we entered the Hotel, the cheerful and helpful girl behind the Reception quickly checked us in and informed us that complimentary breakfast would be served in the restaurant in the morning from 7 AM.
We were very pleased to see our room which was quite spacious and had king size beds. The Bathroom too was big and well equipped. Our first night there, the adventures of the day had so tired us, that we immediately crashed into bed.
We stayed in Hotel Europa for 2 nights and 3 days and had a very pleasant experience. Though the hotel is not situated in Florence, it is conveniently located very near the Railway Station of Signa, just a 15-minute train ride from Florence. It is an ideal place to stay in and explore the treasures of Florence. Check out what to see in Florence if you have 48 hours in hand at your disposal.
We found that the picturesque town of Signa with a lovely backdrop of the Tuscan countryside is an ideal place to relax after spending a tiring day exploring the treasures of Florence.
The complimentary breakfast is quite fulfilling and the staff helpful. Being vegetarians, we had limited options, but were happy with what was on offer. It was a pleasure to have breakfast while admiring the wonderful view of the Tuscan countryside from the hotel’s restaurant.
About Hotel Europa
The hotel is a 4-star property and provides value for your money. It has a total of 116 rooms across two buildings which are opposite to each other. There is a choice of Standard and Superior rooms, however, both the types are elegantly done and have an ambiance that at once is soothing and relaxing.
The hotel has easy access to Florence and its renaissance treasures. Pisa, the home of the Leaning Tower is also a 2-hour train ride away from Signa. All rooms are equipped with Satellite Television and Refrigerators. The hotel also offers free WiFi.
How to get to Hotel Europa
It is very easy to get to and fro from Hotel Europa. If you reach Santa Maria Novella, the main station of Florence, you can catch a train to Signa and reach there within 15-20 minutes. The frequency of the trains is also good, so you would not need to wait long for catching a train to and from Signa. As soon as you alight at Signa, the hotel is visible from the station itself and is located right next to it.
So would we go back to Hotel Europa again?
We would love to go back to this hotel again and spend some relaxing time, probably explore the town of Signa and cycle around the countryside. We were not able to do so on our first visit as time was short and we focused on Florence.
