I hesitate to tell you about this gem because I want to keep it to ourselves. The Monna Lisa is a wonderful hotel. We have been going for 10 years and have never been disappointed. Centrally located on a very quiet street. Steps from the Duomo and very close to the Arno. Beautiful breakfast buffet. Fabulous garden. Very helpful front... More

This place oozes charm. The gardens are lovely and you don't feel that you are in the middle of the city. We stayed both our first and last nights in Florence here and loved it both times. (When we arrived, we hadn't booked our hotel for our last night and after just a few hours of being at the hotel,... More

I was referred by Hotel Cardinal of Florence to this hotel at the last minute and I was glad that they were able to accommodate us. However, only two single rooms were available so my cousin and I took it anyway. I let her stay in the ground floor since she just had knee surgery. Thinking the single room would... More

Pros: walking distance to most important sights, quiet, beautifully-furnished, lovely garden, interesting old building, helpful staff, well-functioning AC, decent-sized bathroom, free upgrade to a better room (although I didn't need the condescending look from front desk staff when I asked whether we would be charged for the upgrade - this was a reasonable question for first-time travellers to Italy). Cons:... More

We choose the hotel for two mean reasons. First because it is close to one of the most beautiful synagogues of Europe. Second we liked the beautiful garden at the back of the hotel in the middle of the city and the classic style of the hotel attracted us very much

All the rooms are nicely decorated and do not look dated. We enjoyed the service (they remembered their guest names) and loved the breakfast buffet there. The hotel has a theme of mona lisa and got this living room fully decorated with different mona lisa pictures and paintings! Highly recommended! The only downside is that you do get free wifi...

In the heat of early August, it was delightful to chill out in the hotel garden next to lemon and cypress trees,with a bar open in the evening to aid recovery from the cultural exertions of the day. Our room was in the old part of the hotel and included access to additional equally charming rooms we could use as... More

A lovely hotel! Perfectly located in the historic centre, in a quiet street, friendly staff. Very beautiful interiors, unusual 15th-century building of the garden. Everything is perfect! In this hotel you want to live in the city of the Renaissance!

Our room was dramatic and had such Italian lavish charm. The bathroom was clean and the beds were comfortable. We were in Florence during the very hot summer and the AC was fantastic. The room was huge with plenty of seating around the whole room and the bathroom was clean. The room was dark but not gloomy-just magical. The staff... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Monna Lisa. It's a charming place in a great location. The decor and architecture are anything but cookie cutter chain hotel. Funky in a good way. The bed was not so comfortable, alas, and the coffee at breakfast was never especially hot. I would stay there again, though mine wouldn't be... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
