What a brilliant hotel, right in the centre and still peaceful. The staff are brilliantly helpful without being obsequious. The food was pretty good. The cultural programme to which they belong is also a big bonus.

This was my first time staying at this hotel and it did not disappoint. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train station and the duomo is visible from the hotel and amazing views from the rooftop terrace. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean. Will definitely stay here again.

Very nice place to stay for a few days. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast is in typical italian style with a great coffee. But the most fantastic is localisation!!! Just a few steps to Santa Maria del Fiore. Have a nice time :))

I stayed here with two friends for a conference we were attending. The staff were all extremely helpful, the room was comfortable, and as the conference was being held in the auditorium we were in absolutely the right place. We had a discount card from the conference to use in the café at lunch times, which we did, and the...

This hotel gets a 5/5 almost for location alone. Each day you leave the hotel you're greeted by the looming Duomo which never fails to enchant! It's also lovely to step out after (a really lovely continental) breakfast onto the terrace and get a photo in front of the duomo. Everything is in walking distance, including the train station which...

We stayed here for 5 nights from november 3-november 8 2016. Our room was excellent and VERY spacious for an Italian hotel. The room was twice the size of our rooms in both Venice and Rome, this was our only stay where there was plenty of room to move around in the room without feeling cramped. Room was very modern...

The Hotel Laurus was great. The location is very central to everything. From the Mercato Centrale to the Duomo you are literally minutes away and there are tons of shops and small eateries right next to the hotel. Another great convenience about the hotel was its close proximity to train station. This was especially good for us as we had...

A gem of a hotel a very short distance from the Duomo in central Florence. Everything you want to see is withing walking distance from this lovely hotel. We had a room on the street side, but with the new-looking window shut, we couldn't hear a sound from below. The roof-top restaurant serves breakfast and a delicious selection of items...

Location is very good and the breakfast is great set on a terrace with views of The Duomo. Our room was small without a good view but clean and comfortable and quiet. Would recommend as a good place to stay in Florence.
