“quite, clean, friendly staff, great location”
Reviewed 28 July 2010

Initially, it was not easy to find the hotel. We used printed out google map as direction, but apparently, the google map has confused with the numbering system in florence... they can be two same numbers but different colour... We were roaming around Via Faenza and couldnt find the Monica Hotel untill we asked somebody for direction. Quiet confusing.

When we bell the hotel, we enter and we were so surprised with the entrace and staircase that very dull and gloomy. But when we enter the reception hall, it was nice, clean and cosy. and the room also nice. the sharing bathroom also clean and huge!

My room come with huge balcony and i like it so much!

Come and stay here... for the best price, as for the room with sharing bathroom -- dont worry, you are not gonna Q-ing to use the bathroom coz you are sharing the bathroom with only few rooms.

I stayed in Hotel monica during my honeymoon in firenze. For the location, it's very convenient becase it's quite near the bus/train station and the mercado central. For the room cleanliness, the room is cleaned on a daily basis. The most surprising part is its breakfast. Although simple but good and, if the weather is nice, you can eat outside with the sunshine! If i need to point out one possible weakness, that would be its bed quality. It's kinda soft and not good for me; but it still depends on everyone's perspective. However, for a hotel situated in this nice location, with nice master Leonard and its wonderful price, I can't ask more!!

We found the hotel to live up to our expectations - It was a small hotel with character and very friendly and helpful staff with in a short walk from bus and train stations and easy access to the major sights in Florence

This hotel is in a perfect place in Florence - less than 10 minutes walk from the Duomo. The owner, Leonardo and his staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are large, clean and quiet. Breakfast was adequate and food was good. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence as it is so reasonably priced for its location. I would not hesitate in staying there again. Parking is a nightmare in Florence but the owner arranges for your car to be collected, parked and then returned when needed. Just watch out for the mosquitoes at night though - keep your windows shut and the air con on!

Despite being on a street close to the train station, it is a 15 min walk (there were lots of hotels closer to the city center). Distance to Duomo was 1.3km, so not really a walking distance on a hot sunny day. You can find hotels better located for the same price. Bed sheets not very clean as well. Pick a hotel closer to Duomo, even if on the same street. There were about 15 hotels closer to restaurants and attractions. We had to walk 3 blocks just to find a bar/restaurant (this hotel is the last one of the street, away from the city center).

Reviewed 4 July 2009

Hotel is near the central train station and a 10 min walk from the city center. It was a little disappointing when we realized that hotel is on the first floor of the building, and there was no elevator, but the receptionist carried all of our bags to our room (one floor more). Room was simple but spacious and clean. The bad thing is that there is no shower cabin, so it was a little bit messy after showering in the tiny bathroom. They have a very nice terrace that we could use in the evening. Breakfast is very simple, but enough for start of the day. Receptionist (I`m sorry I don't know his name) also gave us all information we needed about getting around, free city map and even train tickets to Pisa, which were left by some other guests. Overall, great choice for a budget travel.
