“Return Trip”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

This was our second time to stay at the Monna Lisa and the experience was every bit as good as the first. We love Florence and the Hotel Monna Lisa is part of the reason why. The location is very convenient and everything is within walking distance. The building is historic, the rooms are eclectic, the staff is accomodating and the breakfast is wonderful.

Very well located, just steps from the restricted traffic area in the center of Florence. The hotel is old with wonderful details, in good repair. The breakfast was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful (A+). The dining area is nice; it looks onto a beautiful garden with seating for nice weather (we just returned -March 2012- and the weather was terrific). I am not one to part with a dollar readily, and I was very satisfied with the value.

Room Tip: Room rates vary by quality. Do yourself a favor and ask to see the room first: we changed from one...

The first impressions as you enter the 16th Century Palazzo,off an prepossessing street,is that you have arrived at an oasis of calm in a busy city.The quirky route to our room,via several lounges,full of original artwork and furniture,would not suit the disabled,but,once learned was a daily pleasure.
I would however recommend the rooms off the garden,given some of the earlier comments.Ours,which included a jacuzzi, was excellent.In spring or summer the calm of the garden must be a huge boon.
The hotel is extraordinarily well situated,very close to many historic sites but also offering good local restaurants etc.If you turn left out of the hotel there is a wonderful trattoria about 200m away,as well as the more famous restaurant(much more expensive} 200 m on the right.

We spent 4 nights at the Monna Lisa and found it to be a marvelous hotel in every way. They have private parking, which is a rarity in downtown Florence. We had a large quiet room off the garden. The main building is a rambling old palazzo with lovely old paintings and furniture. A nice buffet breakfast is served and 2 delightful waiters provide capuchini. Very nice linens and bedding. Great sleeping!

Room Tip: Room 37 was quiet and large.

Absolutely charming hotel in an historic gem. The furnishings in the bedroom were tasteful. The breakfast was delicious and the staff entirely accommodating. The location is very convenient to the center of the city and all of the museums and shops.
