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.

Our first trip to Italy!

We were very happy to stay here after doing research on the web to gain insight into the ratings and location of several hotels. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend Best Western so it's a "GO" and you won't be sorry. The Best Western Premier Laurus proved to be winner and very very conveniently located among attractions. What a delight!

Wonderful Vacation

This hotel was in a perfect location. Very easy to walk the entire city and then back to hotel. The rooms were exceptionally clean. Beds were comfortable and service was great. The coffee in the morning was delicious. The breakfast was sufficient but if I could change one thing it would be to vary the menu throughout the week. Overall a wonderful hotel in a beautiful city.

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!
