My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Monna Lisa during New Year's Eve in Florence. This was my 3rd visit to the hotel, and I must say that the Hotel Monna Lisa has retained its greatness.
The rooms are large and very comfortable, and the breakfast buffet is excellent. The front desk staff are always friendly and helpful, and the hotel's central location in Florence makes all the tourist attractions easily accessible by walking. There is also on-site parking available for a fee which is a rare occurence within Florence.
I would highly recommend this hotel for either business or leisure travelers. The Hotel Monna Lisa has not lost its allure over these many years.
