I stayed at Best Western Laurus with my wife between 5 and 9 November 2013.
First of all, the location of the hotel is superb, only 10 minutes walking distance to Santa Maria Novella train station and 3-4 minutes walking distance to Duomo (the cuppola of which you can see from hotel's breakfast terrace).
The rooms were also pleasant and clean (with parquet floors), and the breakfast was quite nice.The only setback of breakfast was self-service coffee machines, which spoiled the taste and pleasure of morning coffee. For a three star hotel, such a service is quite normal, but for a four star hotel of 'Premier' category, hotel guests tend to expect breakfast coffee served to their tables.
Overall, however, I am very pleased with my stay at Best Western Premier Hotel Laurus, and I would definitely stay there again whenever I get a chance to return to Florence
