The hotel is perfectly positioned for visiting the whole of Florence. It is an easy walk from the train station. The staff were friendly, the breakfast very good and the hotel was clean and modern. Our room was very much on the small side - 5th floor so it was quiet but no view at all. The bathroom was fine...

As previous reviews what attracted us was the location. Do shop around for price though as it varies a lot. The hot options for breakfast are limited but good. The cold options were very good.

Just returned from a three night stay in Florence and were really pleased with our choice of hotel. Ideally located in the city centre, just about 100m from the main plaza in front of the Duomo and with everything within close reach.

I chose the Hotel Laurus al Duomo for its location. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts in the morning were very good with plenty of good coffee or cappuccinos. The room was small but quite adequate.
