Hotel Laurus was an excellent location - 5 minutes from Duomo, (10-15 mins from central station where airport shuttle drops you off) and no more than 20 mins walk from the furthest main sights. The room was a pleasant surprise - roomy - bedroom, bathroom and a little sitting room, loads of light from the windows overlooking the Florence rooftops. It was also quiet at night, despite the central location. The staff were wonderful... they could not have been more helpful - we received excellent recommendations for dinner and they ordered taxis, looked after luggage... well, to be honest, anything we asked, they provided with courtesy and always with a smile - they were just so welcoming. This was the 1st visit to Florence and the city is wonderful, beautiful and the people very friendly... Pleasantly surprised how easy it was to walk everywhere and felt safe walking home at night after dinner. Will definitely return, to both Florence and the Hotel Duomo.
