Conveniently located, just 4 blocks from Florence train station (Firenze SM). About same distance to Uffizi Gallery and to Academia Gallery, Ponte Vecchio and to the beautiful cathedral.

""Fabulous hotel in Florence""
What a pleasant surprise, the location of this hotel is excellent.. We had a great room 606 with a terrace and view, breakfast was awesome..

"Great location and friendly knowledgeable staff"
The hotel was fantastic. It was well located. The rooms were clean and modern. Staff were very helpful and gave great recommendations for dining from a maze of restaurants.

"Close to must see sights, large,clean, updated."
The location is perfect. My room was large even for American standards. The decor was updated and cheerful. The bathroom was large and the tub was big and so needed after so much walking. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are very prepared for tourists and had maps and weather conditions ready without the need to ask. I highly recommend this […] hotel and will stay here again.

"Duomo section of Florence"
Fantastic hotel with wonderful staff walking distance to all key sights. We had a view room facing the chuch and the street - very nice. Breakfast was excellent and the espresso machine provided morning jolt of great coffee. Only downside to the room was pillows - way too hard for our taste, but seems to be the Italian way of sleeping. If we go back […] to Firenze we will stay here.

"Honeymoon in Tuscany"
Fantastic location, and very friendly staff. The hotel's wine/breakfast bar overlooks the Duomo and has a fantastic view of the city. The rooms are large, but fairly spartan. Be sure to bring your own toiletries, as those provided are particularly gross. The free breakfast is worth exactly what you pay for it, but it's hard to argue with free. Hotel […] lobby is nothing to look at. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
An evening on the roof-top balcony/cafe capped a very nice stay at this hotel. We originally went up only for evening glass of wine before dinner, and ended up staying a couple hours to watch the sun set and listen to the bells of the Duomo. The location is an excellent compromise for walking travelers between the main train station and the central […] sites of Florence (all just a few blocks from the hotel). Room was clean and comfortable; a good value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First visit to Florence"
Great visit, but was too short. Hotel is near train station and historical sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was 2 blocks from Il Duomo and convenient to restaurants, shopping etc. Staff was helpful, room was nice, included breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel near central station and Duomo"
Ordered coffee service for the room. Every day maid took away service. So, we had to request it every day. Somewhat of a hassle. Browser on computer at internetpoint not updated. Was never able to access it. Loved the rooftop terrace and the breakfast. My wife and I had the terrace all to ourselves for our wedding anniversary.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location! Close to Duomo and train station. Very clean and good size room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Closest to the comforts of the US"
Food at the hotel (in the wine bar) was horrible, and there was only one guy working there who was bartender, waiter, and cook. He was overwhelmed and we felt really bad for him. but still had a very nice time! breakfast was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel and excellent location, very close to the must-see sights in Florence, Hotel staff extremely helpful. Very nice breakfast buffet included in the room rate. Rates were about the best that we found in Florence for the quality and service received. We will go back to the Laurus al Domo and will certainly recommend it to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all the sights...very nice"
absolutely greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and views"
Excellent location and nice rooms - larger than expected. We got rooms with a view (peripheral) view of the duomo which was wonderful. The roof terrace/breakfast area was a real treat. The hotel is a bit dated but overall a first class experience!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and pleasant surprise"
The hotel is five minutes walk from the main train station , no taxi required. Its in a fantastic location one minute walk to the Duomo church which is basically the centre of all things you will want to see . Great restaurants close by, and also good shopping, the rooms are not large but ok ,clean and well stocked with toiletrys and towels..Genuine Expedia guest review
"This was a fantastic place to stay."
Having done a semester abroad in Florence, my cousin and I were eager to go back.The Best Western was a fantastic place to stay! It was very clean and updated and it's location was terrific. We started out each day with a great complimentary breakfast and then began a daily excursion. Because of it's location, we could come back to the hotel mid day […] and shower (the weather is very warm in the summer) and then go back out at night..all without the use of taxis or buses. When we go back, we will definitely stay there again! The staff was also very friendly and helpful if you needed anything. Great place! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for travelers"
The location is great, only few minutes walk to train station. And few minutes walk to all the attractions. The staffs are very friendly. very good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Florence little gem!"
Excellent location, room and bathroom was in immaculate conditiom, however, pillows are hard and flat...that is why 4/5 is given. overall, very good. Would highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location. Great staff"
This hotel is in a great location. Less than a 10 minute walk from the train station and 2 blocks from The Duomo. The staff are wonderful. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The guy who runs the rooftop wine bar is great. Do not miss the rooftop wine bar for drinks and appetizers. The view is wonderful. The rooms are clean. My […] only criticism is the comfort of the pillows. They were a bit too hard for all our liking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again"
Breakfast was very good, only ate at night one time and it was just soso. This hotel is right in the middle of everything you want to see in Florence. You can walk to any attraction in a matter of minutes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute & Convenient"
Sounds like an American hotel, but has all the charm of a European one, just 2 minutes walk from the Duomo, and less than 10 minutes from the central train station. Staff was very friendly, free wifi in the room worked great, and breakfast (included) had a variety of choices, located on the rooftop terrace with view of the Duomo. Despite being in city […] center, noise was not an issue at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Florence. Best location"
The hotel was located a block from the Duomo. It is walking distance to everything. If you get lost look up for the Duomo and it we lead you back to your hotel. We stayed on the fifth floor right below the bar. It was a little noisy early morning and afternoon we they are setting up meals. Woke us up every morning. Love the hotel otherwise.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel for Everyone"
The hotel is in an excellent location, near the train station and near the center of Florence. The staff is very kind, rooms are really clean and thee is free internet. I would definitely stay again in this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean and fantastic location, close to all major sites .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Laurus Al Duomo"
The only thing that is keeping this hotel from a 5 star review is a few snotty front desk employees, and inability to print a boarding pass unless one pays for an hour's worth of computer time in lounge. Of you direct all requests or questions to the two really nice front desk people then it's ok. I found Florence in general to be overwhelmed w the […] sheer number of tourists which I think is part of the problem. It must be difficult for them. Rome seems to handle the whole service industry better. Last day we had littlt to no AC. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We would definately stay at this hotel again. Location was ideal. Three blocks from the train station and a block from the Duomo. Breakfast was decent and the staff were friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Perfect spot- 3 blocks to train, and easy walking distance to major sites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good location to walk to most major sites."
We chose this hotel based on its location and It's breakfast terrace with a view of the Duomo. We were not dissapointed. We were able to walk to the hotel from SMN station in 10 minutes. The service is quite professional. Room, though not large was adequate and very clean.There was a good variety of breakfast selections. Starting the day on the terrace […] with a view is a nice plus. This hotel is a good choice if you want to be able to walk to most major sites in Florence within 10 minutes. Only negative would be that the signage for the hotel is confusing. On the outside it says "Hotel Duomo" and we walked right past it.There is nothing in the hotel's materials that refers to it as Hotel Laurus al Duomo. The difference in signage should be noted when you have your booking confirmed. When you're tired from a long flight and hauling suitcases it's important to be able to find your hotel easily.

"Close to must see sights"
This hotel conventiently located within a two minute walk to the Duomo and the center of the most shopping and other museums. The hotel was great except for the most uncomfortable bed we'd slept in while travelling in Europe for a month and having stayed in about 10 other hotels .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Almost perfect hotel in Florence."
The hotel was in the most wonderful location in Florence. It was close to the Duomo, the rail station, and within easy walking distance to the Uffizi and Accademia. The hotel was pleasant, and included a lovely breakfast on the rooftop with a breathtaking view of Florence. The staff was helpful, the hotel was clean, the bathroom was wonderful. Our only […] complaint was the bed was so hard, we felt we were sleeping on wood. If you can overlook this inconvenience, the rest was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Great Hotel"
Great hotel, centrally located in Florence about halfway between the train station and Duomo. Breakfast is on the outdoor 4th floor patio with a view of the Duomo. After staying a few nights in boutique hotels, it was nice to have some of the conveniences that came with this American-style hotel. Very much appreciated. I would definitely stay here […] again.

"Fine in Florence."
Superb location, a couple of blocks from the Duomo. The room was spacious, and the A/C efficient. The rooftop terrace is pleasant for drinks, and breakfast is served here. It was great to be within walking distance of everything we wanted to see in the old town.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location of this hotel is superb - it is a block from the duomo and tower and just a couple blocks from the train station. It couldn't be better situated. The breakfast is delightful - outside on the terrace on the 6th floor with the duomo and tower in view. The selection of food is very good - eggs, meats, fresh fruit, breads and other options. […] The very best part of breakfast are their two commercial espresso machines that are self service. We loved getting our own drinks, exactly as we wanted them, whenever we wanted them. Nothing nicer than sitting on the terrace enjoying the morning with the best cafe latte ever. The windows are very efficient. Closed they kept out all street noise. Opened they allowed the wonderful sounds of the crowds - and the fresh air - to filter up to your room. We stayed here three years ago and will return again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Your front desk staff was extremely helpful especially Nilu. We contacted her prior to our stay and she sat up reservations for us and followed up. They were all very tolerant of our lack of experience and Italian. We would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good location. Old hotel. I didn't like the smell of the towels. The room is small but clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Take advantage of the breakfast and wine tasting."
We had a wonderful experience at the hotel! I got married in the city and upon return our wedding night the hotel had placed a bottle of wine and a bag of biscotti with a note congratulating us on the desk in the room. The staff was very professional and the restaurant provided a great breakfast for free every morning. The hotel is in a perfect location […] right in the heart of the city. I will stay here again. My favorite part was the wine tasting they offered in the restaurant. You get a giant plate of cheese and cured meats with 3 very generously poured glasses of wine. If you stay in Florence stay here! You won’t be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good recommendation for the Best Western Laurus!!!"
Location, location! This hotel is well located. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast and the wine tasting on the roof terrace are a plus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good one if you don't care about the breakfast"
In genral, the location was very good and our room was quite and clean. The TV did not work, but we didn't mind it. our only problem was the breakfast: the orange juice was not orange juce at all. It was something like water, suger, and orange color, the coffee was not good either, and the bread was not fresh. The staff were polite and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in Florence"
Excellent location. Few minutes walking to all major sites. Excellent staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, not so great furnishings"
We wanted another person to stay with us and they did accomadate us by switching rooms . The furnishings were a little outdated, but the bathroom was very nice. Great view of the duomo from the terrace. Close to the duomo, train station, shops and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
