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,...

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a week last October. It was a very unique, quaint hotel within walking distance of all of Florence. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast offered was very substantial. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! DG

I did chuckle at the review of this hotel that said it was in a dark, dingy street. This is Florence. Italy. Streets are narrow and deliberately dark to reduce the ferocious heat. Honestly, people are simply bewildering. Just a word for those who don't really know; this is the birth place of some of the greatest art and architecture... More

I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. After spending 3 days in Rome in a terrible hotel we arrived here and were immediately captivated. The hotel itself is beautiful. A former palace, it still retains its sense of history,and the art pieces add to the atmosphere. Our room was so cool. It was room #1. And unless... More
