Special Hotels of the World member in the heart of Florence

Period décor, sculptures and original paintings converge to establish a nearly regal atmosphere for the Monna Lisa Hotel Florence, a premier four-star property in the historical city center. A member of the Special Hotels of the World, the hotel is staffed by a polished and professional team eager to assist with the smallest task.

Highlights
  • Extraordinary history dating to the 15th century
  • Member of the Special Hotels of the World
  • Pampering staff delivers first-rate customer service
Rooms

The 45 rooms at the Monna Lisa Hotel Florence are distinctly furnished, each unique in terms of layout and design, yet all sharing a common focus of establishing a tranquil and nurturing environment for guests. Antique furniture and period paintings blend seamlessly with the conveniences of the modern day, which include air conditioning, flat-screen satellite TV, mini bar, safe deposit box, hairdryer and a telephone in the bathroom.

Features

Originally a convent, the Palace was purchased by the Marzichi Lenzi family in the 15th century, where it was kept as a Renaissance dwelling. Several centuries later, the Palace changed ownership and was transformed into a four-star hotel in 1956, retaining much of its original Florentine charge (terracotta floors, coffered ceilings), a richly decorated home bathed in elegance and charm.

Now a privileged member of the Special Hotels of the World, the Monna Lisa indulges its guests with every modern service and amenity while retaining all of its extraordinary Renaissance features, with a polished and professional staff eager to assist with the most minor task.

The hotel's 45 guest rooms are all distinct in layout and furnishings. Each room is an oasis of calm and serenity that nurtures and reinvigorates the weariest traveler.

A lush Italian garden offers the perfect setting in which to relax with a Tuscan wine or cocktail, while an onsite gym offers basic cardio and strength training circuits.

Good hotel

Close to everything, very convenient, nice hotel. Staff was not very helpful, hard to get to by car. Parking its 22 Euros a night, too much and it's behind the hotel. I contacted the help desk to give me direction and said he could not do it over the phone, he should just tell me it was behind the hotel, I spend an hour just to come back twice and park. Hotel was nice over all. if you don't have a car, it is worth it.

Charming Former Palace Close to Duomo

This former palace is like being in an museum with antiques: oil paintings, the fabulous breakfast room with a huge leaded window wall. A 7 minute walk to Duomo, very helpful staff.

Beautiful hotel great location welcoming staff

This hotel was beautiful, well appointed, and in a great location. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The only issue we had was with the taxi driver who did not bring the large taxi as the hotel clerk requested. The breakfast was very nice including eggs, meats and cheeses. We would definitely stay there again

Watch out for gypsies at the Florence train station. They are very aggressive. They grab your bags acting like they are trying to help you and either steal the bag or demand cash to give it back. They are dressed very well or sometimes in porter type outfits

a find in the city of michelangelo

a former monastery, you need to pass through the cloister to get to your room. has one of the coziest little bars i;ve ever seen. only reservation is that breakfast contains no variety. on the other hand, with salami, prosciutto, gorganzola and fresh fruit, as well as top-notch florentine pastries, what difference does it make??

Good value and good location. Although my room was a bit dark and small, the hotel itself is charming.

gone downhill

i have stayed at Monna Lisa 4 or 5 times over the past ten years and it has become disappointing. Rooms need a major upgrade - walls are dirty as are rugs. TV required two remotes to work - when I went to the staff to complain about the TV nor working I was told "the world does not work". Breakfast is marginal but breakfast staff was prompt. I will not stay here again unless they do a major refurbishment. Too many hotels in Florence at reasonable rates to take this level of service.

Florence Hotel

The Mona Lisa is quite old but has its charm. Our room was small and rather depressing. The gardens around the property and the big pots of plants were lovely. The hotel has no elevator so carrying suitcases was difficult. There are porters to help if you ask, however. The breakfast was wonderful!

GREAT GARDEN

Florence doesn't have parks near downtown---just cobbled piazzas which are great for dining, or coffee. But for tree-shaded leisure with a breeze and sun-lit greenery, the Monna Lisa's garden is tops. Few other guests made time to sit and read with coffee or wine but we loved to relax here after visiting museums and churches.
