Comfortable Rooms, Perfect Location,
I highly recommend this hotel. Quiet location but within less than 5 minute walk to the Duomo. Good and inexpensive restaurants nearby.
Customer service was wonderful. They go out of their way to help with all questions/concerns.
May be minor detail - but water pressure in showers were great also.
Breakfast was good also. Stay here.
My 4-night stay at this lovely hotel was not planned. The hotel I reserved was overbooked and sent me here. I couldn't have been happier. The room (no. 21) was huge and located in the old part of the hotel, right off the pretty bar. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub. Breakfast was great and the staff pleasant and helpful. The hotel even has a spa and gym. Location was central. Would recommend to anyone.
beautiful hotel, unique setting in an old palace. staff are very friendly and helpful. location is excellent. garden is beautiful and breakfast is great.
Terrific, American Friendly Hotel
This hotel was great. Very charming and well located. The staff was superbly friendly and answered loads of silly questions. They spoke perfect English. It was a very American friendly hotel, with many of the amenities you'd expect to find in the States. My only complaint was that we were stuck in a room on the ground floor of the annex, and our courtyard view more accurately a view of their gravel parking lot. I'd highly recommend this hotel, but I strongly suggest trying to secure a room in the main building.
What a Great Hotel!
Formerly a Florence Palace begun in the 1300s, this establishment has the old world charm you would want when visiting Italy. With a great location only minutes from the Duomo, everything is within walking distance for the most part. Enjoy a drink out in the garden from the exceedingly helpful staff. The rooms were standard size for Europe from my experience, and they also have a free internet point as well. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Stayed a week at the Monna Lisa. Great staff. Great location, charming former villa. Beautiful breakfast room. Room sizes vary so check it out first. Don't miss the special Mona Lisa artwork.
Very special indeed
We had a fantastic 2-night stay at the end of the March and the whole staff were very helpful. Room 5 was a real romantic treat and I proposed to to my soon-to-be wife on the balcony overlooking the gardens, it was perfect.I would thoroughly recommend the Monna Lisa with its special rooms and great town centre location, only 5 minutes stroll to the centre.
The Hotel Monna Lisa is off the beaten path but in a good location betweem the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio. The many common rooms are furnished with antiques. Breakfasts were wonderful. I found the hotel a pleasant haven to rest and relax after busy trips about the city. I liked the interior courtyard and my room in the newer annex. My sense is that the rooms vary in size and decor, so you may want to see a few if you're unhappy with your assignment.
This is not the place for people who want to stay on a busy street and near nightlife, nor for those who need elevators and want to minimize walking. I thought the service was quite good -- capable, proper and quiet rather than bubbly and flattering.
Monna Lisa on our honeymoon
This was perfect hotel for our honeymoon. It has a old world charm versus a Four Seasons feel. Also, it was off the beaten path which gave it a nice touch compared to being around some of the busier areas of Florence. The only thing lacking for my tastes was the lack of a bar to mingle with others at the hotel. My wife wants to know when we are schedule to go back.
Monna Lisa Hotel
This is a gem of a hotel. It used to be an old palace some 700 years ago. Absolutely beautiful! Gardens, great breakfast, well appointed rooms, cozy bar. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better more romantic hotel. Rates were much lower than posted on the website. We went in November. Located very close to the Duomo. The service is what really set this hotel apart!!!!!

... After the dinner we went to the space disco. It was fun, had kareoke in the basement and the dance floor upstairs. The club was pretty cool but it was just two contiki tour groups and some creepy Italian men. Lots of girls from the tour were making out with the Italian men on the dance floor haha. Surprisingly, I could have done without going to the disco. I am extremely tired and my feet were sore. But as my tour manager says, "just carry on" and that's what I did. Next stop - ...
... The ride back left us with time on the bus tickets so we tried unsuccessfully to find a bus to get to Piazzale Michelangelo. A long walk around more charming streets, then back to the Hotel for a nap.
Another tasty dinner at La Martinicca followed by an evening walk to the Duomo. Ambulances like to circle the square and adjoining streets, no, they did not stop for a pick-up, just circled 3 times while we were walking about.
... plaster copies of scuptures, but the main attraction is of course David.
This is now behind a glass wall so you can no longer get close to it, but are kept about 6 feet away.
David is certainly comparable / if not better that, the best of the statues we saw in Egypt, including the statues of Ramses II in Memphis. The detail in the small things, such as the finger/toe nails, the veins in his arm, the sinews in his ...
