Awesome location

This hotel is in a awesome location. Your stay here will be a good one. I can promise you that! The staff was very helpful. The rooms were very clean and very well maintained. Offseason tip...do not purchase your reservations to the museums through the hotel. Just get to the museum early enough to beat the lines and save the hotels reservation fee. The breakfast here was a very good - the view from the restaurant was just awesome. You will enjoy your stay here. The hotels is a very close walk to the train station. Enjoy, we did.

Excellent hotel, perfect location

Hotel Laurus is a short walk from the train station Santa Maria Novella and in the heart of the city. It's in a perfect location with the Duomo minutes away and delicious restaurants within walking distance. If you branch out a bit from the tourist areas, you will find a ton of local bars and restaurants (Mainly Giglo Rosso.) The hotel is clean, the triples were huge and breakfast was a delight. The concierge was very nice, and helped us buy tickets to the David. They spoke both English and Italian, which was great for my non-Italian speaking travelers, but perfect for me to practice my rusty Italian. An all-around win!

Unbeatable location for the price

Our experience was incredible. Great location, we walk all the surrounding area, Il Duomo, mercato centrale, the museums. The quality of the hotel was impeccable and the people from the hotel were very helpful and nice. It was a great experience overall.

walking is the best way to get to know the city. You will find the little restaurants around that usually do not advertise that much.

Loved this hotel! Very very nice.

So close to everything you want to see in this lovely town. You can walk everywhere you want to go and I found the hotel staff very helpful and courteous. A very comfortable & polished room with great soundproofing. Lovely bedding and a great clean bathroom. Worth the extra money.

Excellent Affordable Center of Florence

Great (no nonsense) hotel with central location. Room with a view was affordable, clean and modern. Our room was in the front of building on the fourth floor and looking directly down the street. You can see the window in the picture of the front of hotel. This was an upgrade from the standard room and worth it. If you lean out the window the Duomo was visible 100 meters to the left. Excellent English speaking helpful friendly staff. The Hotel is very comfortable and has recently redone larger than average room and bathroom. Very close to the train station so getting in and out of the city is a breeze. Easy walking distance to everything. Continental breakfast is good and served on the roof! Positive in every way. Recommend for couples. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Tremendous location

The business center was one computer in the lobby with unreasonable rates of 5 euro for 30 minutes.
