Nice hotel with clean larger rooms. Modern baths. Walk to/from the train station in 10 mins. Walk to the Duomo in 5 mins. Walk to the Ponte Vecchio in 10 mins. You are right in the center of all the shopping. Good breakfast. Super convenient location.

Hotel Laurus al Duomo is perfectly located a short walk from train and bus stations and the main tourist features. The warm greeting by well presented, curtious and very professional reception staff sets the positive feel about your stay. Our room on the 7th floor with a view across the terracotta roof tops was very clean, well appointed and very...

The pictures didn't accurately depict the quality of the room. It was not nearly as nice as the pictures. The decor was a bit outdated and below average. The location is great, however. Very close to city centre and major attractions.

The location was perfect with a perfect view of the Duomo. Within walking distance to everything you will want to see and do in Florence. Service was great. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Helpful staff. We have stayed all over Italy and would gladly stay here again.

Dear Fede_Ita we are happy that you enjoyed the service the decor and cleanliness of the rooms and appreciated our staff!

My friend told me about this hotel and the situation he faced. In some cases, not like cleaning a room, you want the staff be responsible and help you to solve some special situations. The staff of this hotel do nothing if you ask them to. I don't want to go there any more.

Fantastic location! Walked everywhere from the hotel! The hotel was just down the road from the Cathedral and we could walk to all the major museums, churches, and restaurants in the old City. Breakfast was excellent and we could sit on the balcony and see the Cathedral in the evening - I would definitely return!

There is no word about any fee for entering ZTL in the access rules of Firenze (attached), and neither about this task being delegated to a garage. The hotel failed to perform this task, misleading the hotel guests.

“On a busy street but the rooms are fairly soundproof. If you're sensitive to noise ask for a room away from the street to be safe.”
