This place is not a five star hotel so do not walk in expecting that. It took us a minute to adjust when we first arrived. The room was small and the four of us each had a small cot like bed. Very small window kind of made us feel closed in. However, for the price....the location was excellent. The... More

We stayed at the Hotel Monica for three nights this past October. We found the room a bit spartan but otherwise clean and comfortable. The accommodations were basic but the location and price were right. The hotel is located only a couple blocks from the train station and within easy walking distance of all the major tourist sites in the... More

This hotel was very accommodating. While the room was tiny, it had everything you needed and felt cozy. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast was satisfying with a variety of things to choose from. The location was excellent--a five-minute walk from the train station and five minutes from the Duomo and leather market.

This hotel was ideal for sightseeing Florence / Pisa Occupying 1st and 2nd floors off typical terraced housing along typical Italian street, short walk from station and close to everything you need. Rooms very clean, air conditioned, basic furniture, nice powerful hot shower, in fact all you need when just using a room as a base. If you are looking... More

Excellent location, just a few minutes from the rail way station and from all other main attractions. Room was spacious and extremly clean. Friendly staff and the breakfast was a great start for my long working day! For me it was also perfect because just a few steps far away from the fortress da basso exhibition fair!

Dear Madam/Sir, you booked through an online agency a "twin room with shared bathroom": When you got here were disappointed because there was no private bathroom in the room. All the rooms of the hotel have their onw private bathroom except that one and we never had refrigerators in any room. We were full that day so we could not... More
