im shocked by all the negative comments here,i stayed 2 times in laurus.
once before renovation the other time after.
it's a good hotel close to everywhere!!!!
then i reed comments about the price of the beer it's to expensive??
come on 6 euro?okay it's normal what do you expect 4 euro?
then about the beds it's always something what to hard to soft.......
mosquito's hunt before you go to sleep then it wont bother you anymore.
for me the staff was friendly from desk to the bar at the sixth floor!!!
don't hesitate about the hotel!!! I LOVED IT SO MUCH !!!!!

Recently stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Laurus al Duomo (Best Western chain) in Florence, ITaly with my husband and 2 daughters. We had two rooms which were very nice, clean, and updated. Air conditioning worked well for Europe. Very convient location. Walking distance to train, Duomo, and most major attractions. Desk staff not friendly at all and made us feel very awkward and uncomfortable when we had ask for something. They did help us book a Tuscany tour and called taxis for us when needed. Breakfast room not open early enough if you need to head out early for a tour or train, so I went to an open cafe (which was difficult at 645am on a Monday)to buy some pastries and we ate them in the lobby waiting for our tour bus to arrive and were given horrible looks by the hotel staff for doing so - rude since we didn't bother them or make a mess and we needed to eat something before we left. Convenient location, nice rooms, but staff not nice.

Dear Sirs,

Thank you for choosing our hotel.
Thanks for the compliments on our rooms, cleanliness and efficiency of air conditioning.
Our breakfast room opens at 7 am and our staff was just sorry that you had to go to a bar to buy the pastries in the morning, in fact, if you had asked the night before, we have prepared two convenient baskets with breakfast and with the kettles for tea or coffee you could eat with quiet in your room before leaving for the trip!
We regret that our care for guests was mistaken for rudeness and we hope to welcoming you soon.
Best regards

Just back from a stay in Florence. The hotel was in a fantastic location, just by the duomo. The weather was very hot, so the aircon in the room was fantastic. No tea and coffee in the rooms but you could sims request this at no charge. There was Internet facilities via a username and password for wifi from reception again at no charge. The concierge was extremely helpful. I would stay again and would recommend this hotel.

Hotel was in a great location, about a 10 minute walk from the train station, only about 1/4 to 1/2 mile away from the Duomo on the same street! The service was good, breakfast was okay, the view from the dining area was super! We enjoyed having this hotel as a central point to explore Florence on foot. Great place to stay in a great city!
