Hotel Laurus al Duomo
Ranked #73 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Hotel is a five minute walk from SMN station and the Duomo, and is conveniently located to the Uffizi, Bargello and Accademia.

Rooftop terrace offered great view and open air dining with a limited selection of good food and wine.

We did not partake of the breakfast, because we felt 10 Euros per person was exorbitant.

Front desk staff was courteous and helpful, and Grazielle gave us a great recommendation of Gelateria Grom.

The only downside was no English language TV stations.

This was a perfect choice, and, if we return, will most certainly stay again.

Location was perfect and the terrace adjoining the breakfast area on the 6th floor provided spectacular views of Florence. The rooms were very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast selection was more than satisfactory and the area was large enough for all to enjoy.

We stayed for four nights in sept 13 and were upgraded during our stay for free. We found the staff really helpful especially the breakfast & bar staff. The hotel is located close to the railway station and just around the corner from the Duomo, you couldn't ask for a better location. We would definitely come back and would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is perfectly located in Florence - just so easy to walk to all the major attractions from there. The travel agent we used had mistakenly booked us without breakfast but that worked out fine as there are plenty of cafes nearby for a croissant and cappuccino - an excellent one next door in fact. Also in the same building is an auditorium where we saw a very well executed performance of The Traviata on the Saturday night. We stayed for seven nights and our room was kept spotlessly clean with fresh bedlinen and towels daily. All the staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful - Claudio in the lovely 6th floor bar and restaurant made us feel very special with his attentive service. This is a gem of a hotel in the centre of Florence and we shall most certainly return here when next we visit this wonderful city.

The hotel has a perfect location in the heart of the old part of the city, close to all the sights, shops, restaurants etc. The staff were really friendly and always happy to offer advice when asked. The roof top terrace offers stunning views of the Duomo as the sun sets and also has a fantastic selection of the best wines from the region. Claudio, the hotels sommelier was extremely happy to impart some of his extensive knowledge of the local wines and his recommendations never failed to hit the mark - the setting sun - fine wine and platters of local meats and cheese - a perfect way to spend the evening. We will certainly be staying here next time we visit Florence.

We spent 3 nights here while in Florence. Pleasant staff, clean and spacious rooms, close proximity attractions, made this a great choice for a short stay. Complimentary breakfast was substantial making it a good brunch options, leaving more time to visit the city. Free Wifi was very helpful.

We stayed here for 4 nights in September:

Pros:
Location is fantastic. Their 6th floor restaurant has an outdoor patio with a view of the Duomo. Just a few blocks form the train station also. The staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations, getting taxis as needed, and answering questions. The complimentary breakfast is decent. Our room was recently updated and kept clean. The beds were good.

Cons: This is more of "expectation". Hotel rooms in Italy tend to be small, and this was the case here. Not a major issue if you are not going to spend a lot of time in your room.

Overall, we would stay hear again and expect an equally satisfying experience.
