This hotel couldn't be in a better location. Lovely old building. Beautiful gardens and relaxing rooftop solarium. Breakfast was wonderful. Rooms had some type of air freshener that really had a too sweet smell. We asked to change rooms, but the other room smelled the same. Just opened the window at night.

They deserve a BIG ZERO!!!! We booked two rooms for a three night stay at the Hotel Monna Lisa from 5/17 - 5/19/2016. We had stayed at this hotel eight years ago and loved it, so we were looking forward to returning. We had room numbers 41 and 42. Do not stay in these rooms they had a funky sewerage... More

The room was small but sufficient. Beds were very hard but the balcony overlooking the garden was very nice. Breakfasts included but nothing fantastic. Overall, a clean friendly atmosphere. The staff was helpful and spoke English, interesting history of the property which was over 500 years old!

This hotel was formerly a Renaissance palazzo and is situated in a quiet side street just minutes from the famous Duomo in the main square. You walk through a large doorway and looking up, see painted ceiling panels c.1600 swirling with heraldic arabesques and decorations gone berserk. The hotel staff are friendly and speak fluent English, which is helpful. My... More

I just needed to reiterate how incredible this hotel is. Smack bang in the centre of Firenze, no more than 15 mins walk from any of the excellent sites, galleries and piazzas.

This hotel is very unassuming and plain on the outside but once inside, it's like finding a hidden treasure. The courtyard, outside bar and rooms are wonderful. Our room was a two-story loft style with a vintage Italian feel and a couple of modern touches. One bed on the top and a sofa bed on the bottom. Each area had... More

Great breakfast, close to the Duomo, generally quiet, nice courtyard. Air conditioning varied. Sharp front office staff keep the place steady. There's some great restaurants on the very street this hotel is located.

The best hotel I've ever been to by far. If you enjoy priceless works of art, then this is the hotel for you. The walls are covered with gorgeous paintings. Sculptures can be found scattered throughout the hotel. The byzantine hallways awake a childlike wonder previously forgotten. The staff are generous and accommodating and the location is superb. Air-conditioning is... More

We stayed here for 4 nights whilst on our honeymoon. The staff were all lovely and the hotel is magical. I'd love to stay again when we return to Florence. Wifi was free and other facilities were brilliant. It was a short walk to the Duomo and about 20mins to the station. Being tucked down a quieter street is great... More

i have never stayed anywhere like the Hotel Monna Lisa--very unique with a bit of a Middle Ages feel. I was there with a party of five during 2015, and we had three spacious rooms. My single room was on the second floor, at the top of a large concrete staircase near the hotel's front desk. My room had a... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
