My son and I stayed at the Hotel Monna Lisa for four (4) nights in March. We reserved a Superior Twin Room overlooking the courtyard behind the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with cold cereals, fruit and pastries. The hotel itself is beautiful with numerous sitting areas, a bar/lounge, and the breakfast room.... More

We stayed at this hotel for three days in March. Firstly, it took us three hours to find the hotel because the hotel's website directions ARE WRONG!!!! If you are considering driving there, do what we eventually did and stop at the first hotel you see and ask them to show you on a hotel map! It is in the... More

The four of us (2 adults and 2 boys ages 14 and 11) stayed in a large room with loft on the first floor facing the courtyard. Very quiet and comfortable and very old-fashioned Italian, which seems appropriate for Firenze. Bathroom, on the other hand, was brand new, which is good for Americans. Never saw (or heard of) any "Contessa"... More

This hotel was worth the search. Easily in walking distance to all the sights in the city. I stayed there alone and felt very safe and comfortable. The courtyards were fabulous even in the dead of winter when I was there. I'm going back!

We recently stayed at the Hotel Mona Lisa. Nice location and very quite. Our room, in the older villa, was small and nothing special as was the long narrow bathroom. The included breakfast was very good and the staff in the dinning room were excellent! The front staff, which must take their lead from the owner, “the Contessa” were sultry... More

We stayed in the Monna Lisa for 4 nights in early December and had a positive experience. This is not a luxury hotel, but given the price we had no complaints. The street is a quiet one and the location, near the Duomo and on the same street as La Giostra Restaurant is very convenient. Hotel staff were very helpful... More

This is the third time I have stayed here over the years (the last time was in 2001). The common areas and the rooms are beautifully decorated. But, what I think that the rooms are overpriced and that other hotels in Firenze are just as nice and less expensive. On top of it, I found the staff this time to... More
