Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Monna Lisa. We were in Venice just before & although we were very pleased with our hotel & room etc there, when we walked into the Monna Lisa it really had the 'Wow' factor. We had a Superior Twin room, which was really quite large & beautifully decorated to a high standard. We also had a jacuzzi bath, which was very welcome after a day of walking & sightseeing. The only setback was that our room was extremely warm & apparently there is no air conditioning in the hotel. The reception were very helpful & provided us with a fan & turned the heating off in our room. The weather was actually a bit changeable outside & we had to put our clothes on just before leaving the room. Our room wasn't part of the main hotel, it was across the garden & in another block. So we assumed not all the rooms were the same, as reception said that other guests had asked for the heating to be put on. Overall we thought that the hotel was gorgeous & we had a fabulous time in Florence. We also saw Jan Leeming at breakfast a couple of times, so we know we were in good company. As for sights, we would highly recommend not only the Cathederal Santa Maria Del Fiore, but if you're fit enough & don't mind heights - walk up the 400 plus steps to get a closer look at the magnificent painted ceiling of the dome, then go right to the top & see the wonderful view over Florence. We also stumbled into the church Annunziata which was absolutely beautiful & worth a look if you've got time to spare.
