We stayed at Laurus in August 2011 during our Italian trip.
The hotel is centrally positioned within a walking distance from all major sights and a train station. Literally, few minutes walk to everything but Palazzo Pitti.
We got a room on the top floor with the great views almoust in all directions (see attached photos). The room was spacious and clean with a balcony. There is in-room Internet, safe, TV, and all other standard amenities.
The hotel had a free daily buffet breakfast with a nice selection of basics: cereals, pancakes, coffee, etc.
We haven't had a single problem during our stay. Check-in/check-out was seamless and fast.
I would definitely stay again at Laurus if I'm in Florence.
