I stayed in this hotel two nights in June. We reserved a triple room for 3 adults. The room was very clean, good space for all of us. The room was really quiet, windows were facing to the back side of the building with a non-interesting view of next building roof. but well, you are in the amazingly beautiful Florence,...

Pros: Excellent location (less than 10 minute walk from the train station, and close to everything else!), breakfast buffet included and was set on outdoor terrace with a view of the Duomo (selection was small but the best I've had!), modern decor, friendly staff, free internet included. Cons: Bathroom was a bit dark - could do with some extra lighting....

The perfect location for Florence. Close to everything and great views. Rooms and bathrooms are good size for European hotels. Bed was new, a little hard but comfortable enough. Breakfast room with balcony was very nice and added bonus of afternoon snacks. Internet connection was the best we had throughout our whole trip in Italy. All staff was very pleasant...

The Best Western Hotel Laurus is in the historical center of Florence, just a few steps from the Duomo and the city's main museums. The hotel is walking distance from the train station about a 10 minute walk, and you really feel like your a part of the city when you stay in this Hotel. Rooms are about average nothing...

This hotel is literally 800metres from the famous Duomo, and walking distance from railway station. We're in our fifties and found it simple to walk with our roller cases to the hotel. Staff are excellent and helpful. Great room - big by European standards. It'sin a wonderful position in terms of being very central. Spotlessly clean. Highyl recommended.

Absolutely perfect location, right down the street from the duomo. The rooftop terrace is very nice and has bar service as well which we took advantage of every night. The rooms were large with beautiful views of the city.... the hotel staff was very helpful but don't take their recommendations on food...... use trip advisor

“On a busy street but the rooms are fairly soundproof. If you're sensitive to noise ask for a room away from the street to be safe.”

“If you get a room without a view, then you won't have the noise from the street.”

“Worth upgrading to a Duomo or at least a street view as some of the rooms look across at each other through a courtyard.”
