Hotel laurus al duomo is in a good location , near the duomo, you can see the dome of the duomo from the breakfast area. You can walk to the Uffizi gallery, Academia and all the important tourist attractions. Staff is helpful, breakfast is good and the rate is reasonable for a beautiful city in a good location.
