We have just returned from a perfect four night stay at the Laurus al Duomo. If you are looking for a Hotel that is close to Florence's tourist hot spots then look no further. The wonderful Duomo is just a short stroll away and the rest of Florence's tourist attractions are within easy reach. We arrived at the Vespucci Firenze Aeroporto and attempted to take the city shuttle bus to the Santa Maria Novella train station for 6 euro's per person, but unfortunately it was full, the station is just a ten minute stroll from the hotel. So we decided to take a taxi into the city center, which was for a flat rate of 20 euro's plus 1 euro per suitcase. We were met by a very friendly and efficient receptionist who checked us in quickly and efficiently.We were allocated room 309 which was at the rear of the hotel, although not a scenic view, it was found to be very quite.
The room was nicely decorated and spotlessly clean with a good size bathroom. Generally a comfortable good standard room. The breakfast was taken in the rooftop bar area and we ate alfresco a couple of times on the adjacent roof terrace, with the Duomo dome in full view. Breakfast was of a good standard with a good variety. We enjoyed our stay and would fully recommend a very comfortable centrally located hotel.
