Great Stay in Florence

The location of this hotel is absolutely fabulous. So close to the cathedral and within walking distance to every main point in Florence. The room was very clean. The staff was much more friendly than other places we visited in Italy. The free internet connection in the room was an added bonus, although it comes and goes. The breakfast buffet was simple, but nice not to have to worry about finding breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed a dinner in the hotel restaurant, which was very good. Overall, we had a very nice stay in Florence and enjoyed the hotel.

Lovely Week Surprise Break

The trip to Florence was a surprise 50th present for my wife. Her dream a holiday in Tuscany. The hotel was situated in the middle of the tourist area with all the attractions within 10 minutes stroll of the Hotel front door. We could not of asked for a better location. The hotel had all that one required, comfort, very nice and helpful hotel staff. I would recommend this hotel for its food and wine selection.

Great location!

The hotel was in a fab location, a two minute walk from the Duomo and many shops which suited me just fine! The staff were friendly and polite, particularly the Bell Hop who had a great sense of humour! The room was clean, including the bathroom. I did find the bed a little hard but it wasn't a huge problem. We had a really good two night break in Florence, which was made better by us choosing this hotel!

Wonderful location

This hotel is on a bustling street, not far from the Duomo; yet, because of the heavy double-paned windows, it was very quiet. In fact, we couldn't hear any street noise at all. The room was very comfortable and the staff, friendly and helpful. We felt like we were in the middle of everything with so much to see and do within walking distance, In fact, you can't go very many steps without seeing something interesting: a statue on the corner of a building, an interior courtyard with a fresco, beautiful building details. Florence is a walker's paradise, and the location of the hotel couldn't have been better for us. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the duomo in the distance was pleasant and the food, excellent. We would definitely stay in this hotel again.

On the other side of the river there is a restaurant called Antica Trattoria Angiolino on Via S. Spirito. The Italian couple sitting next to us had come from Rome to go to this particular restaurant to have their specialty, florentine steak.

Great location and good service (at reception) - not always attentive

Pros: - close to train station - close to the duomo, academia gallery, several other attractions - good size room (I booked a suite) Cons: - very low water pressure - The tv in sitting room wasn't working and nothing was done even after we pointed it out. Very disappointing since I had booked and paid for a suite with a view to kicking back in sitting room during evenings. - Internet kept on cutting out and we were told its an issue with whole city. Not true because Internet at Arnold Coffee (few doors down) worked fine all the time. Used them more than the hotels.

Perfect location

I travelled with my daughter to florence and stayed in a standard twin at the Laural al Duomo. The location in the centre of Florence was perfect, it is in strolling distance of most of the main attractions. It has a very pretty roof terrace with wonderful views for breakfast and a evening drink. Our room wasn't the largest but it was beautifully clean and comfortable, and as we were only staying 3 nights it was fine. We did hear the people in the rooms adjacent to ours talking quite clearly and the people above clip clopping round on the wooden floor, which did become irritating late into the night. However we would definitely return to this hotel as it is a complete gem.

Great hotel

This was a really nice and comfortable hotel right in the middle of busy shopping and very close to the Duomo. The beds are comfortable (a little hard but I like it that way) and the room was clean albeit a little small. The only thing I wish they had was a gym but other than that it was great. Breakfast was okay, not fantastic but fine.
