Europe being quite large perhaps this can be better answered with a specific 
city in mind?

Theres a lot of neutral centres but watch out, many are not that well fibred
out.. make sure you have the carriers there that you need. Also keep an eye out
for someone who's stable .. a few have gone bankrupt and others may still follow 
and unlike in the US when a company goes bankrupt theres no safety net ch11, its 
just switch off and asset sale.

Personally I'd use Telehouse or Telecity..
