We wanted to feel like we were in a Villa in the Tuscan Countryside, but smack in the middle of Florence. We found it! The Monna Lisa Hotel in Florence is just that. Hidden away in a back street but only blocks away from the Duomo - this Hotel was PERFECT!
Romantic, original Art work all over the walls, beautiful gardens, lemon trees, room were spacious, clean and with lots of details. The owner taking care of her garden every morning and greeting the guests...it was just what we wanted for 3 nights in Florence. We were very pleased!

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the second floor overlooking hte gardens. Spectacular!

This is a really charming small hotel, very central but pretty quiet and full of antiques. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the breakfast is plentiful and delicious. There is a quite sizeable garden which is really pretty and where you can have breakfast.The hotel is excellent value and I couldn't recommend it more. There is even parking!

We stayed at the Monna Lisa for 5 nights while visiting our daughter who was studying in Florence for a semester. The hotel was a peaceful oasis in a bustling city. The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly. Our room was very comfortable and faced the courtyard which is beautiful. The decor is very unique with wonderful antiques and art everywhere you turn. If you plan to visit Florence, this is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony facing the courtyard.

The Hotel Mona Lisa is a wonderful place to stay in Florence. It is located on a quiet street away from the throngs of tourists that visit the city. Yet it is also close to everything. We would recommend staying in the old building (which at times can seem like a labyrinth) - we stayed in Room 5 on the second floor which overlooks a beautiful garden. It was spacious and quiet.
The staff were gracious and helpful. The breakfast (included with the room) was very good. There is also a very cozy bar with a very friendly bartender. A nice place to unwind.

Just returned from 4 nights at the Monna Lisa hotel in Florence. First of all, hotel is charming, breakfast was great, and location good. What has caused me to give it such a low rating was in great part to 1. Our room: stuffy, small, noisy(on the street) and walls like paper....you can hear EVERYTHING!..even in the hallway. 2. The woman at the front desk for most of our stay was just plain rude. The bellman that was usually there at the same time as she was almost as bad. There was no explanation of hotel amenities, room features etc on arrival. When we needed to call to ask questions that should have been provided on check in there clearly was annoyance in her tone. When we had an issue with the toilet, the bellman/handyman arrived with a toilet cleaning brush and told us we "use too much paper" After further conversation, he told us the toilet always has issues......why were we not told on check in??? Room 27 by the way. The staff in the dining room was helpful and nice.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the street and esp room 27. Ask about AC if that is important....Mosquitos are a pro...

I booked the Hotel Monna Lisa for our first trip to Italy in celebration of my 50th birthday. I sent an email letting the staff know about the occasion and they remembered as soon as I checked. They upgraded me to the move beautiful hotel room I have ever seen. It was like staying in a museum. The staff we unbelievably helpful and friendly, posing with me for pictures on the night of my celebration and providing a complimentary bottle of champagne. They had great recommendations for restaurants nearby. The hotel is in a great, very central location. We went to Venice, Florence, and Rome and without a doubt, Florence was our favorite city. And the hotel was a big part of that. Beautiful gardens, great breakfasts, beautiful decor. I will always remember this wonderful trip (and birthday) because of the hotel and staff. Thanks, again!

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to one of the superior rooms. All the hotels where we stayed in Italy were tiny...
