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.

Nice location but lacking in PR

Laurus Hotel is situated right in the center of the Duomo, close proximity to everything including all the restaurants and attractions. This hotel is ideal to everything including the train station which is about a 10-15minute walk. Save yourself the 10 euro taxi drive!. The view of the Duomo at the hotels rooftop was spectacular. We did not opt to pay for breakfast but staff allowed us for free coffee and pastries while we were on the rooftop. I was not particularly impressed with the staff. They were somewhat cold- they definitely need to be more helpful & a little bit more friendly. We were surprised some nights that the front office is manned by a skeleton crew & sometimes no one at the front desk. The hotel location & cleanliness definitely made up for staff's lack of hospitality & PR!

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.

First trip to Florence

This may be a biased review because we had one of the best rooms in the hotel. High up and on the back side facing the Medici Chapel dome, it was quiet and had a nice private balcony. During our week long stay, the staff were very helpful and always available. The breakfast on the terrace was great with a nice view of the Duomo and great cappuccino! The large room and bathroom were kept spotless. We also enjoyed having the in-room coffee maker for a pick me up after walking the magnificent city that is Firenze. We highly recommend the Hotel Laurus.

Room Comfort

This hotel is a typical European hotel, small, clean and no frills. The negative was the pillows which were thin and hard as concrete The location of the hotel was great, just down the street from the Duomo which you could see from the rooms and roof top dining area
