This hotel is a short walk from the train station and is perfectly located in the center of the city by all of the attractions you'd want to see. The hotel itself was very good, the rooms were clean and perfectly suited our needs. The hotel staff were a bit dry and standoffish - but - the location, room and... More

The hotel is a 10 min walk from the train station and a 2 min walk to the duomo, so the location was great for us. The room was simple but clean. Our "double bed" seemed to be 2 twin beds pushed together and was rather hard and lumpy. The room was quiet. The wine bar on the upper terrace... More

The Laurus is a perfect location to base a visit to Florence, as it is within walking distance of all the major sights, and easily reached by foot from the train station. We did not require use of a taxi or other transportation while we were there. Although the rooms are not large, they are spotless, well designed and appointed... More

Located one bloc from the Duomo and very central to the commercial and historical places. It's 15 minutes walk from the train station. Very quiet and confortable. Front desk people are polite and courteous. The hotel has a nice roof terrace for breakfasts. I shall go back.

We stayed at this hotel for the first time. Good hotel, very well located close to Duomo. Breakfast could be better, small selection of food, however very friendly and helpful staff. If you improve the breakfast, it will be appreciated.

We booked this hotel for a 3 day break in Florence. It was a 10min walk from the station. The rooms were adequate but the mattresses were rock hard and we both woke several times during the night with back pain. We had no hot water on one evening and we were told firstly that we had to move rooms... More

We have just had 3 nights here. It was excellent. Brilliantly located for all the sights of wonderful Florence. The room was good value and spotlessly clean with fresh bed linen every day. The terrace bar has stunning views to the Duomo and some magnificent roofscapes actress the City. The wine list is all local which was fantastic. The staff... More

An easy walk from the train station and the Duomo, this hotel ticked all the boxes. Rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable and bathrooms spacious. Breakfast is served on the 6th floor and although not warm enough for us, there is a delightful terrace with a view to the Duomo. Breakfast was perfectly acceptable, the pastries filled with custard... More
