Friendly, helpful staff, 24 hour concierge, excellent breakfast, clean, quiet room, interesting history of the palazzo. Lots of common rooms to sit in and read the paper, and a beautiful garden. Perfect for exploring central Florence, eating, and shopping. This is my preferred area to stay in rather than near the Santa Maria Novella train station or anywhere else as... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel, it's not 4 star in my opinion but Italy seems to have a strange rating system. Having spent 14 holidays in Italy I speak from experience. On the positive, the location is great, it's clean and staff were helpful. On the negative, rooms are a bit dated some may say rustic but bathrooms... More

Every time I go to Florence ( at least once a year) I stay at the Monna Lisa. It's in a back street and away from the crowds but just a few minutes walk to the duomo. It's got a lot of character and staff are friendly. It's a pity they charge €15 per day for wifi in your room... More

We visited Florence staying at the Monna Lisa Hotel April 11-18th with our youngest daughter who is 19. The Hotel was absolutely perfect for us. It is a real Italian gem with lots of beautiful art and architecture and a number of highly unusual Mona Lisa paintings! Our room was ideal for the three of us, we had the mezzanine... More

Set back from the noise and crowds, this hotel was everything we needed. The room was quite large with plenty of drawers and lost space. The bathroom had a jacuzzi and a bidet (which I soaked my feet in every night!). The breakfast was redundant (boring) but filling. The wait staff are very friendly, we forgot to tip - if... More

After fighting the crowds, which you inevitably do in a popular European city, it is a huge bonus to have a quiet beautiful garden to come back to and enjoy a well deserved glass of wine. The hotel is definitely old school, but in a good way. A great little bar where Vincenzo or Brian will keep you entertained and... More

A beautiful typical ancient Florentine palace...truly different from most of the other hotels. I chose a superior room that was quite spacious. The parking is useful as the area is overcrowded, though a little expensive. I'll be back!

The hotel grounds are beautiful: painted ceilings in the entry, lovely garden to relax and enjoy a cappuccino, and decor that reflects the period of the hotel. They said that wifi was only available in common areas, but we were able to sign on from our room (not sure if that is possible in all rooms or we were just... More

We stayed at the Monna Lisa for 3 days over Easter Weekend. It's a lovely, old school hotel. The room accommodated three adults easily. The shower was powerful and there was plenty of hot water. There was a jacuzzi bath tub, which was good but not great. Since the tub was so large, I think an elderly or disabled person... More

I wanted so badly to write this hotel a raving review. The space is wonderful - it is truly a unique, well preserved space in the heart of Florence. The grounds are beautiful, it is well decorated treasures and has humorous nods to Mona Lisa throughout the premises. Furthermore, the garden is absolutely stunning - lush and green with vibrant,...
