"Location is best feature"
This was a perfectly fine hotel, with decent amenities. Not the most impressive place we stayed on our honeymoon -- kind of basic and corporate -- but the location right next to the Duomo makes it a great place for taking in all of the action. I wouldn't say it's the best place for a honeymoon, but it's perfectly good for most visits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel close to Duomo"
Excellent location for tourists. Centrally located within walking distance to all key attractions. Small hotel with lots of charm. Rooftop terrace is lovely for breakfast as well as happy hour. Guests receive a complimentary welcome drink. Friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review

Hotel had a great location by the Duomo in Florence. Walking distance to the Uffizi gallery, Accademia, Train station, Ponte Vecchio. The staff was very helpful and courteous with any question we had. The rooms were overall pretty good size compared to others I stayed traveling through Italy.

"Centrally Located Hotel in the Heart of Florence"
I came to Florence with my 17 year old son. This hotel is very clean, easy to find and located right in t he heart of Florence, just a few minutes walk to the Academia where the famous statue of David is and within walking distance to all restaurants and 5 minutes walk to the main train station: Santa Maria Novello Train Station. The receptionists are […] very helpful. My recommendation for restaurant nearby is Il Brincello on Via Nazionale. Great food and great service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Florence for the first time."
We visited Italy for the first time and in Florence stayed at the Hotel Laurus al Duomo. It was a wonderful choice. Great location, wonderful staff- very helpful and pleasant, providing answers to questions and perfect suggestions for sightseeing. If we visit Florence again- we will definitely stay here.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In the Heart of Florence."
Just down the street from the Duomo, this is a comfortable, clean place to stay. If you aren't expecting typical hotel amenities, you won't be disappointed. There is a convenient snack bar in the lobby and the staff is friendly and helpful. A week before we arrived, I emailed the hotel, asking for specific reservations at a restaurant in a village in […] the hills across the Po. When we arrived, the waiter led us to a lovely table by the open window with a beautiful view of the Tuscan hills. Thank you Hotel Laurus, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel 2 minutes from Duomo"
The hotel staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. I did wish the bar was open later thought, they has such a nice rooftop. Wish the hotel had more amenities such as spa or sauna. Otherwise great hotel and even better location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Duomo, Nice Hotel, Great view"
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. It is very close to the train station and Duomo. The view for breakfast was very nice. Breakfast selection was good. The room was clean. The only reason for not a 5 rating was the shower. It was a decent size but would get the floor soaking wet becasue the "door" did not cover the whole shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Terrific central location. Clean, good A/C"
Love Florence. Was very happy with the location of this hotel. Also dinner recommendations were just what we wanted although being in Italy a week I felt like we never had a bad meal. Even casual pizzerias have good salads and pastas. The hotel room windows do not overlook the Duomo but the breakfast roof terrace does have a nice view down the street […] of the dome. If you want to be in the center of town with a good mid price hotel this fits the bill. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location, close to everything, the room was nice and big, walking distance to train station, that was wonderful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"LOVED the location of this hotel!"
Hotel Laurus is in a great location and is the perfect place for being in the center of everything in Florence. The Duomo is only 4 blocks away. We walked to all the well known sights. Shopping nearby is also very good. Service is excellent, especially the people who work at the front desk. They know everything. Breakfast is the usual Italian hotel […] fare: cereal, cheese, salami, croissants, fruit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good but hard to find."
We liked this hotel. It was a great location, clean room, nice bathroom with a tub! BUT it was hard to find! The name of the hotel is on the window rather than above the door, which is a different sign. THey really need to do something about that.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect location, accommodations, and staff...thanksGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and clean hotel"
Nice, clean hotel. Staff not overly friendly. Very convenient to the train station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close proximity to the Dormo and train station. However the hotel is in need of a facelift as it appeared worn and tired. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The free Wi-Fi was a plus. Buffet breakfast was adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"can't beat the location"
only stayed for one night and had to leave very early in the morning. This hotel is a stone's throw from the dome in a pedestrian zone. Right next to the hotel is a concert hall which had a program of some of the better known Italian operas. Will gladly come back to this hotel for a longer stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great great hotel"
This was a great hotel. I looked at many many hotels when deciding where to stay and I'm very glad we pick this one. The location was great and in the middle of the historic places, The staff was very polite, The room was very clean and looked like it had been renovated very recently. We would highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location"
This hotel is centrally located near the Duomo. We walked to all Florence sites - even those on the other side of the river. We had a triple room which was large (separate bedroom area for the 3rd person - no door between the rooms). The bathroom was nice. There were no screens in the windows, allowing mosquitoes to get in the room - this was annoying […] since 1) we couldn't get fresh air and 2) the cleaners opened the windows while cleaning (we walked in on them) letting bugs in. We left a note after we figured this out. The service in the hotel bordered on rude. They barely acknowledged us each time we entered and seemed bothered when we asked for restaurant recommendations. The lobby is tiny on the main floor with a slightly larger lobby on the first floor. Breakfast (included) was adequate, not great. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place for a quick stay in Frienze"
This was the perfect place for a quick trip into Florence. Its very close to the Santa Maria train station. We we were walking distance to all of the major museums and tourist attractions. The view of the Duomo at night is spectacular. We enjoyed the staff at the hotel as they were helpful when asking questions about food or off the beaten path act […] ivities.

"Great hotel and location for everyone"
This hotel was centrally located in Florence with a few blocks walk to the Duomo and great shopping. The room was large with a few chairs for relaxing. The staff was helpful with making dinner reservations for us and also for recommending other places to eat. I must say that Claudio, who worked in the wine bar, gave us great wine recommendations and […] he also hooked us up with another great restaurant in Verona, which was amazing. He was the most helpful person and just a delight to talk too. If you want good wine, see this man. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Duomo though hard to find!"
Enjoyed the hotel and the view of the Duomo from our room, which faced the main street. Bed was hard, but so were all the other beds we slept on during our tour through other cities in Italy. Probably my biggest complaint regarding the hotel was that it was really hard to find! We walked past the place twice looking for the name of the hotel posted […] on the outside of the building (large signage like most of the other hotels and businesses). Instead, they have a large canopy for another organization - Life Beyond Tourism (which apparently they partner with and share a lobby). Their name is on a small sign to the right of the building's entrance. We ran into another guest later that night and he had the same complaint we did - hard to find and poor signage.

"right in the middle."
Very nice hotel, right in the middle of everything, easy to find if you get lost. The roof top was great and a good value for cheese and wine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very European, with modern touches"
Has very European feel with typical small rooms but well set up for the space. Enjoyed our five days there, except for the internet outage. Helpful staff, and well maintained. Very clean. Very well located for seeing Florence on foot which is the best way to do Florence. Close to train station, on the bus lines and a 25 Euro ride by taxi to the airport. Breakfast […] was a delightful and noteworthy experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Near the Duomo and nearly perfect"
You cannot beat the location as far as sightseeing. The sixth floor terrace has amazing views of the duomo. Rooms are large by European standards and have been redone. The bathrooms give you a full shower and large sink.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location: near train station and Il Duomo"
Perfetto. This was my third stay here. Delicious breakfast with magnificent view of the Duomo from the restaurant balcony.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Bang for your Buck!"
We were very pleased with the location and rooms. The bathrooms were great and the breakfast/restaurant balcony had a lovely view of the Duomo, which was just within walking distance. The only downside was a slightly rude set of front desk workers. Overall, we had a very nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Can't beat the location!"
Great hotel in a great spot. Easy walk to all of Florence's must sees. Great terrace bar and super helpful staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small but sufficient"
Great location right near the Duomo. Room was fairly clean, nothing fancy but ok (kind of more dorm-like than a hotel room). However it was tiny and the bed was really hard. Not a huge deal since you spend more time sightseeing anyway. If you want something a bit nicer will need to spend a bit more - good for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is great for tourists who want to be near most attractions to walk to. Clean, we'll cared for ,and decent breakfast. We loved being able to walk to the duomo and the museums within minutes. Bed was very firm, but mild con to more pros. Staff spoke very good English which was helpful too.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Clean, Comfortable, Location"
+ Clean, Comfortable, Location. Room 703 (facing San Lorenzo) Well appointed with excellent bathrooms. Their "Mission Statement" is excellent & well stated & they live by it. Staff was occasionally difficult to locate especially when the doors are locked after 2am or when at the "Free Terrace Bar Drink" 2 hour window is happening. Complimentary continental […] breakfast. Staff again difficult to locate, but it is free & a self service situation. They were in full disclosure & upfront with the extra 4 EUR checkout fee. Would certainly return for the price.

"Great Hotel centrally located"
We were really pleased with this hotel. Location was great! Our room was really comfortable and very spacious, also the bathroom was really good size and clean, so we were really please with that because the bathroom in our hotel in Rome was tiny. The Staff at the Duomo were really friendly and willing to answer any question we had.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location; lousy bed"
The hotel was excellent and could not have been better, and the front-desk staff were very helpful. The room was a little dated for a four-star. We also had a premium room with a King and a view, so I was surprised by the hard bed. It was the least comfortable bed in a three-week vacation in Southern Europe!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"5-Star Hotel for Great Price"
Location within walking distance from rail station and the Duomo Cathedral. Bathroom was luxurious in size with a full size soaker tub - rare find in our travel in Italy. Was like a spa - heated towel rack and even bath slippers. Room was good size and very clean. Hotel terrace was a million dollar view of the Duomo - beautiful at night. Were privileged […] to a free wine tasting on the terrace which was a nice touch. Hotel staff were very helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
