Overview

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.

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.

Property 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.

Delightful experience

Would recommend Sun, Nov 8, 2015
A stay at this beautifully decorated and conveniently located Hotel was a delight. Excellent resturants are just a 5 Minute walk from the Hotel. The City Center is only a 10 Minute walk. Their breakfast is excellent, the facilities quite clean, the bed very comfortable, and the bath more than adequate. The staff was very helpful. Internet Service in the common Areas was quite adequate so I did not add it to our room. Expect this Hotel to be more of an insight into old Florence than a modern Cookie-cuter facility, however. Areas that I would have liked to have been improved were the AC controls and door fit.

Fantastic gem in the heart of Florence!

Would recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
This hotel was so, so lovely! I took a train in from Milan and was not feeling so well and very tired after a long day of traveling, so took a cab to the hotel. He knew exactly where it was and a quick trip...but it is also very walkable I walked back for my train home with a backpack, no issues, in under 20 minutes. The desk staff all spoke perfect English and the grounds are beautiful. There is a large entry way the provides some privacy for the lobby and rooms, so you are not right on the sound. I was checked into the front room right off the lobby and never had any issues with noise. The lady that checked me in and was mainly working at the desk noticed that I seemed a bit lethargic and was very nice about asking how I felt and if I needed anything. The bed was comfortable and the room was HUGE by European standards. Bathroom also was fairly large. While the wifi on the public grounds is free, it did cost money in the rooms, but I was able to pick up a decent free signal from my room. The breakfast in the morning was varied and good for a quick bite to start the day. One afternoon when I was feeling especially bad, I spent a few hours in the garden out back. So green with lemon trees and birds chirping. Just wish the benches were more comfortable! It was a very short walk to the Duomo and so many gelato options! The price was a bargain for all of its features. tldr: Great location, staff, and rooms. Absolutely adore this place, would happily return and have recommended it to so many friends.

This hotel had the most wonderful public areas and the staff were very good. the only problem I encountered was limited wifi. There was free wifi in the public areas but to have it in the room cost from 5 to 20 euros

The staff was very friendly. Awesome breakfast service. The only issue was the internet service and location. Otherwise, it is a beautiful hotel. Recommended for senior couples.

Great well priced hotel

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
I was pleasantly surprised at how the hotel matched the online photos. It was so charming with many pieces of art and antiques through out the hotel. The location was central though complimentary guide maps were not necessarily oriented correctly. It was no problem though as Florence is a small town. The staff was most gracious and spoke English and several other languages. The guests were international and engaging. Breakfast was a nice buffet featuring a wide variety. Except for some street noise it was a wonderful place.
