The Hotel Monica is a well run nice place. The staff is friendly and efficient. The rooms are large enough and clean. It is located central enough and good resturaunts are close. With a breakfast included, you could not ask for more on a budget.

Never expected to be cold in a hotel room. No heat until 6pm and then just lukewarm. For the price 75e, I expected at least a warm room. If you are hot blooded, you may like it... Room Is near the train station which is nice. Entrance is up a flight, so be prepared to carry your luggage!

Dear Happytraveler, I have just saw your tripadvisor profile. You have posted 11 hotel reviews and you have rated poor 5 of them. You must have a very bad luck! More

Located just minutes away from the magical basilica of Santa Maria Novella and the railway station the Hotel Monica is in a prime place to suit the tourist short on time and funds. It is modest in facilities but lavish in charm with spacious rooms, an internal courtyard and terrace with views onto old time Florentine houses with terracotta tiles... More

Me and my friend stayed here for two nights in a row. The rooms are quite tiny and unfortunately in our case the airconditoner didn't work. We got a room with a balcony, however, a generator was also next too the door and made noises regularly all night. The bathroom was shared but clean. The breakfast was simple but tasty.... More

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.

The hotel is very close to the central station, everything is so close to the main city attraction and shopping, clean hotel, breakfast is decent, but the staff are outstanding especially Dominico, he is always anticipating your needs.

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
