The terrace is awesome and the staff is great (Domenico and Elton) so it pains me to say this is not the best hotel in the area. Reception is one flight up and our room another flight up - no lift. Room is big and AC was on during our stay in hot July, but we were never quite cool.... More

The hotel is very close to the train station (5minute walk) and it is situated in a great street full of small restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy your meal. The building is old, ofcourse, as most in the buildings in the centre. The staff is very polite and there is always someone in teh reception 24/7. The rooms... More

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!

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.
