Old World hotel with exceptional beach views
Posted Aug 8, 2016
Hotel Europa is in its original condition, most likely from the 1930's/1940's, and remains untouched. The hallways, lift, bathroom tiles, wallpaper and furniture have a charming quality, if somewhat dated... the hotel itself is in a superb location, one side facing the sea and the other facing the decadent San Remo Casino, in the central shopping and restaurant area. The room itself was huge by today's standards, true to the style of old world hotels, complete with an entry hall and super tall ceilings, and the view of the sea from the little balcony was breathtaking, all day long. Undoubtedly, with a proper renovation, this hotel could be superb. Although old, the room was comfortable and for the most part clean, however on arrival I found layers of dust on the desk and bedside tables, and had to wipe them down myself before placing my things on the furniture. All in all, this is a good hotel for a short stay.
