Its located down a bumpy cobblestone street thats used as a shortcut for scooters and cars in the evening and the rooms street side capture all that. The hotel is up one flight of stairs and the tile floors inside amplify any noises made from inside. Breakfast consisted of breads, cheese, ham, and a coffee multi-machine. The showers had either...

Very nice staff. Good breakfast. Great water pressure for the shower. Only a couple blocks from the train station and within walking distance to anywhere in the city. I made a mistake in booking a double bed instead of two singles and the staff was happy to help out and fix the problem.

I was put into this hotel by one I had a reservation with that could not fulfill it. They said Monica is a comparable, two star hotel, but I think otherwise. The location isn't too bad; very close to the train station and a modest walk to city center. The bed was saggy, the street noise kept me up, the... More

Excellent location just down the road from a lovely strip of restaurants and a short walk to touristy attractions. Room was big! Everything was clean and tidy. Breakfast was fine. Only way up to the hotel was a flight of stairs. Not good for pregnant lady with suitcases. Noisy inefficient air-conditioning

The plus point was that the rooms were clean. The hotel is quite close to the train station, and finding it was quite easy. Florence is small so everything is walkable from the hotel. Staff was great. Breakfast was fine - good value for the price point. Wifi was working fine.

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

Staying in San Lorenzo

Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.
