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.

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??

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.

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.

Charming Hotel with fantastic staff

I loved my stay at the Monna Lisa hotel. If I could, I would give it a ten! Wonderful artwork & plenty of comfortable common areas with free WiFi. My favorite was sitting in the beautiful garden with my ipad. I felt I was in the Florence of long ago. The staff spoke English & went out of their way to be helpful which was appreciated by a single woman traveler. The breakfast was great with personal service, good china and silver tea pots. What could be better. Book early as they book up quickly.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Everything you want to see in Florence is within walking distance-skip the taxi & walk. You will save money. Also, with such a great breakfast, I could skip lunch or have fruit & save $ for dinner.

Wonderful stay!

The Hotel Monna Lisa is a quaint Florentine hotel which lives up to the European ambiance one would expect. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. The room was small but sufficient and clean. Daily maid service was very good. The location is within a 10minute walk from central Florence landmarks such as the Duomo. I highly recommend this hotel for it's value and services.

Viihtyisä ja rauhallinen hotelli hyvällä sijainnilla Firenzessä

Huone oli viihtyisä ja rauhallinen. Vuode mukava. Huoneen lämpötila sopiva. Hotelli oli eri nähtävyyksien suhteen hyvällä paikalla, lyhyiden kulkuyhteyksien päässä. Aamiaishuone oli kaunis ja aamiainen hyvää. Negatiivista oli se, että naapurihuoneista kuului jonkin verran ääniä. TV:stä ei löytynyt englanninkielistä tekstitystä.

tres bof

les chambres sont vraiment petites et très mal isolées, on entend tout ce qui se passe dans le couloir et les autres chambres alors si comme moi vous avez la malchance de tomber sur une chambre à cote de l'ascenseur et si l'hôtel est envahi par un car de touristes américains bruyants votre séjour va être difficile. néanmoins le jardin de l'hôtel est charmant
