Stayed 3 nights in rooms facing onto busy street, but very quiet due to excellent quadruple glazing. Room comfortable, a good size and very clean. Staff helpful but limited English in a few cases. Breakfast/supper room is very small and if weather is bad and room top terrace is closed, go early to get a table. Breakfast is very good,...

I booked this hotel based on past reviews & location. We couldn’t have been more pleased! The location is wonderful – I was ashamed to have taken a taxi from the train station when I realized just how close it was (less than 7 minutes at my slow pace)! It was also only 1 block from the Duomo area. There...

The room size was small and typical of European hotels. We had a lovely view of the alley and trash. Continental breakfast consists of cereal, toast and coffee. The worst...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in May. The hotel was very conviently located for us. It's a few blocks away from the Santa Maria Novella train station (which was good since we arrived in and departed from Florence by train). It is also very close to the Duomo. Our room was very modern and clean. We...

Spent last night of a month long trip at Hotel Laurus in order to catch early flight out the next morning. The only splurge from otherwise modest accommodations throughout our travels. Arrived in Florence by train and walked to hotel from station. Twin bedded room as requested was just fine although extremely expensive. Fifth Floor view overlooked Via Cerretani but...
