Hotel Laurus al Duomo is an ideal location set in the middle of Florence. About 15 minutes from the outer areas of Santa Croce, Pritti Palace and Accademia gallery but a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Duomo. The breakfast terrace on the sixth floor gave a perfect view of the Santa Maria Dome. The hospitality gift of...

We had a great stay at Hotel Laurus al Duomo. They have a very professional look to their staff. You walk in and it's a comfy but business-like atmosphere. They were helpful with our questions. There is a little cafe near the lobby and a bunch of meeting rooms in the floor below the lobby. The rooms were very clean...

The breakfast and rooftop service staff was great! There was a guy from Kerala (I think) that was awesome. Greeted us every morning with a smile and enthusiasm and after day 1, knew we loved his cappuccinos. We didn't even have to ask for them on day 2 and 3, he would bring them out automatically. Views were amazing, we...

Great hotel in a brilliant location. Nice room on the 6th floor. Didn't spend too much time in it so perfect for our requirements. Breakfast is a traditional Italian breakfast with a selection of meats, cheeses, breads and sweet cakes and pastries. Amazing view when you sit on the terrace. The breakfast staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient. Always...

Our experience at the Laurus would have been so much more enjoyable had the staff not been so rude. The room was fine with plenty of space. The breakfast inc in the rate was well worth it with a nice variety. The food on the rooftop patio was great, but the dinners were very pricey and the service was terrible....

The hotel is in a great location, a five minutes by walk from the railway station. The room is spacious, and clear. Our room view at the Dome, we recommend it to everyone. The breakfast was good, but the third day is already boring.
